Demi Moore: Ashton Kutched Forced Me to Have Threesomes, Pushed Me Back Into Alcoholism

by at .

Remember that very brief period of time when Ashton Kutcher was an in-demand A-lister?

Yeah, it turns out society was right to leave his trucker hat-wearing ass in the early 2000s trash heap alongside Avatar and Dick Cheney.

Raising Funds

Ashton married Demi Moore back in 2005, and there was a time when it looked like the couple might really make it work despite his relative youth.

(Kutcher was just 27 when they got hitched; Moore, 43.)

The actors remained married for 8 years, which was considerably longer than the celebrity prognosticators of the time predicted.

Of course, we now know that Kutcher was cheating, partying, and generally acting like the kind of douche who owns a ton of ironic trucker hats throughout their time together.

Moore has a new memoir coming out next week, and the excerpts that have been released thus far are not exactly flattering to the Kutch.

For starters, Demi confirms that Kutcher cheated during their marriage, but arguably worse is the fact that he engaged in a weird gaslighting campaign in order to make her feel like it was her fault. 

The trouble began, Moore writes, when she agreed to engage in a threesome with her then-husband.

“I wanted to show him how great and fun I could be,” she says, adding that she now feels their two trysts with a third partner were “mistakes.”

Moore reveals in the book that when Ashton was caught sleeping with Sara Leal at Danny Masterson's bachelor party (“I felt sick to my stomach,” Demi says of Leal's confession. “I knew she wasn’t lying.”) the Punk'd host claimed he thought she wouldn't have a problem with it, seeing as their marriage was no longer monogamous.

“Because we had brought a third party into our relationship, Ashton said, that blurred the lines and, to some extent, justified what he’d done,” Moore writes.

Elsewhere in the book, Moore says that her relapse after 20 years of sobriety was at partially due to Kutcher's dismissive attitude toward her alcoholism.

“I don’t know if alcoholism is a real thing — I think it’s all about moderation," Kutcher reportedly said while sipping wine at dinner one night.

Having a Ball Together

“I didn’t think, ‘This is a kid in his twenties who has no idea what he’s talking about,’” she wrote. “Instead, I cast about for justifications for his argument.”

That same night, Moore says, she had her first drink in more than two decades.

During her split from Kutcher, Moore says her drinking quickly spiraled out of control.

“Drinking became interwoven in my pain,” she writes.

Based on what we now know about him, it's no surprise that Kutcher was of little help in her recovery.

In fact, it seems he made matters worse, shaming Moore by snapping embarrassing pics when she passed out intoxicated during a party.

“It seemed like a good-natured joke at the time, but it was really just shaming.”,” the actress recalls.

“It was also confusing: Ashton had encouraged me to go in this direction."

These days, Kutcher is married to Mila Kunis, and together, they're working to help the That '70s Show cast supplant Glee for the title of "most effed up group of teen actors from an early-2000s Fox show."
