The Demi-se of a Hollywood power couple
Heads are heavy in the bh office this morning. After months of speculation that Demi and Ashton were headed for Splitsville after six years of marriage – and a couple of Kabbalah counselling sessions to boot – our suspicions that it was all over rover were proved right.
The official statement from Demi came in this morning. “It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton. As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life,” she said. “This is a trying time for me and my family, and so I would ask for the same compassion and privacy that you would give to anyone going through a similar situation.”
Cue our cutest sad faces. Demi and Ashton were the cougar and the cub couple that showed the world that age was but a number. That a 40-something-year-old women could be content and positively radiant with a younger beau in tow. That it wasn’t always the guys who were able to nab a younger lover! We really hailed Demi round these parts – and were equally as impressed that Ashton didn’t act up in any immature way (well, most of the time).
Sadder still was Ashton’s response to news of the split via Twitter. “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi,” he Tweeted. “Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK.”
Sniff. Tell us, did you think it would last?
