Demi Moore is ending her six-year marriage to Ashton Kutcher.  "It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton," Moore said in a statement to AP.

"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."

Though Ashton Kutcher vowed to turn his Twitter account over to his production team, he took to the popular social networking site to confirm the split. “I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi,” he wrote. “Marriage is one of the most difficult things in the world and unfortunately sometimes they fail.”

The split follows several reports that Kutcher cheated on Moore with 22-year-old Sara Leal in San Diego on the day of his sixth wedding anniversary back in September.
