London: Demi Moore, once dubbed a cougar who fell for an ambitious toyboy, aims to punish her estranged husband Ashton Kutcher by “grabbing his fortune”, a source has revealed.
The 49-year-old actress, who is determined to take revenge for the betrayal that led her to seek a divorce, is said to have instructed her lawyers to “punish him financially”.
Moore’s edict is in spite of a pre-nuptial contract with the 33-year-old actor, which she insisted on when they married in 2005.
At the time she wanted to prevent him ever seeking a share of her 97 million dollars pot of assets.
Back then, the ‘A Lot Like Love’ star, the son of a mid-western factory worker, was just beginning his acting career while Moore had a fortune built up from roles in hit films including ‘Indecent Proposal’ and ‘Disclosure’.
In addition she also had a 50 million pounds divorce settlement from her second husband, ‘Die Hard’ star Bruce Willis, but now Moore’s career is on the wane and Kutcher is the one who commands major fees.
He earns 500,000 pounds an episode playing an Internet billionaire in the TV sitcom ‘Two And A Half Men’ and as much as 4 million pounds a year as a successful investor in new technology projects, including Skype.
