"It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have decided to end my six-year marriage to Ashton," Demi Moore said in a statement today. "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." The actress' decision follows a mediastorm of controversy over Ashton Kutcher's alleged one-night-stand with 22-year-old Sara Leal. Worse still, the tryst reportedly occurred the very night of Ashton and Demi's sixth wedding anniversary in September.

"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," Demi said. Ashton, for his part, tweeted "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." —Phillip B. Crook
