Doubts had been raised over whether they had ever really been man and wife. But a legal document has emerged that proves Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore were in fact legally married.
They had sparked speculation they never truly tied the know after failing to lodge divorce documents almost a year after splitting.
But they are named as spouses in a new uncovered quitclaim deed, which is a legal instrument by which the owner of a piece of real property, called the grantor, transfers his or her interest to a recipient, called the grantee.
The paper, obtained by InTouch, shows that Demi, 49, gave up her claim to a piece of property in Los Angeles, a move that no doubt put a smile on wealthy Ashton’s face.
The Striptease favorite signed the document in March, suggesting the pair may be finding their own way of divvying up their rich portfolio of assets.
Demi announced she was ending their marriage in November amid a slew of cheating claims, and the Two And A Half Men star has now moved onto younger pastures with new love Mila Kunis.
Sources had told Radar Online that the former couple’s Kabbalah wedding was merely a ‘symbolic ceremony and not a legal marriage’.
The couple wed in September 2005 in a ceremony attended by 150 guests, including Demi’s ex-husband Bruce Willis.
