Sources told the New York Post that lawyers for Kutcher, the highest-paid TV actor last year, and Moore “are trying to negotiate a settlement out of court and out of the public eye.”
But “they still haven’t reached an agreement over money, because Ashton earned substantially more during the final years of their marriage, but he doesn’t want to pay a large settlement.”
And one source added that if they don’t reach a private agreement, “the discussion could boil over into a public court battle.”
Kutcher, who made 24 million dollars last year, and Moore split up after six years of marriage when he was reportedly caught cheating during their anniversary weekend. He has since moved on with a very public romance with former “That ’70s Show” co-star Mila Kunis.
