Ashton Kutcher, who last week handed over the management of his Twitter account to an editorial team, reacted via that same account to the public statements made by Demi Moore, his wife, concerning her decision to file for divorce. On Ashton’s Twitter feed appeared the following message:
I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi. Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail. Love and Light, AK
As it’s been extensively reported here and elsewhere, Kutcher, a TV and film actor, has been a very visible proponent of social media; he was the first person to reach a million followers on Twitter. The couple’s individual Twitter feeds were enormously popular. Kutcher and Moore said their marriage vows in September 2005. Demi Moore, who was previously married to Bruce Willis for almost 13 years, made her statements through the Associated Press.
“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. 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,” were Demi’s words.
