Well, here’s a surprise: Ashton Kutcher is reportedly at the center of Demi Moore’s feud with her daughters.
Earlier this week, the blogosphere lit up with whispers that the troubled star’s three grown daughters — Scout, 20, Tallulah, 16, and 23-year-old Rumer — are reportedly considering seeking a restraining order agains their estranged mother. Now we’re hearing that the relationship between Mom and her girls exploded over their continued contact with their stepfather.
A source told RadarOnline:
“The girls have all stayed friends with Ashton, and that is infuriating Demi. Ashton cheating on Demi humiliated her, and when she got out of the relationship she thought she was setting a good example for her daughters, so when they stayed close to Ashton it devastated her.”
After Ashton was caught cheating on their sixth wedding anniversary, Demi tried to make their marriage work but announced in November that she was leaving her husband. Ashton, however, has remained active in the lives of all of his stepdaughters, attending concerts that they’ve performed in and supporting them through their mother’s recent commitment for substance abuse issues.
Demi was taken to a Sherman Oaks hospital Jan. 23, after falling ill during a birthday party at her home in suburban Los Angeles. Her reps continue to insist that she is seeking treatment “for exhaustion and to improve her overall health” in the wake of her split from the alleged philanderer last year.
“She doesn’t understand how they could stay close with Ashton after he humiliated her and she’s asked them to stop talking with him but they refuse. Demi can’t let that go and can’t get over it, so she constantly attacks the girls for staying friends with Ashton. They’ve had it with her over that.”
