Hollywood, CA- Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore split up a year ago and he has moved on with Mila Kunis, but they still haven’t officially divorced, leading many to wonder; is it because of the money?

The couple split after details of Kutcher’s cheating ways surfaced. The split shook Moore hard and she has since struggled with a drug problem and drastic weight loss.

But the fact that they have yet to sign a divorce settlement had sent the rumor mill into hyper drive. RadarOnline went as far to suggest that their marriage may not be legitimate, however there seems to be different reason they haven’t gotten the inevitable over with; money.

A source, close to Kutcher, told US Weekly that the former couple is working on financial settlement before they file the official divorce papers. The process is moving so slowly because Kutcher is “so cheap,” and “he’s trying to get the best deal he can.”

Last month Kutcher explained they hadn’t gotten a divorce because he was waiting for Moore to file and he didn’t want to put any pressure on her considering her fragile state.

Before Kutcher began his role in Two and a Half Men, Moore was worth more than he, but that has changed since he now earns $70,000 per episode.

Money and children are generally the causes of a prolonged divorce battle. With the help of an accomplished divorce attorney, a couple will have a better chance of reaching a fair settlement in a timely manner.
