A cheating scandal has erupted involving Ashton Kutcher and a 21-year-old woman, and now ET is saying that Ashton and wife Demi Moore may be getting ready to sue Star magazine, the oft-maligned tabloid that is reporting the story.
What might make the allegations even more malicious in Ashton and Demi’s eyes – the magazine is claiming that the affair first started when the woman, Brittney Jones, met Ashton at a bowling alley in July when he was there with stepdaughter Rumer Willis.
Ashton’s lawyer has vehemently denied the story, saying in a statement, “Star magazine continuously publishes lies about Ashton Kutcher and many other celebrities. This is not the first, nor will it be the last time they engage in reckless conduct.”
And Ashton has been on the defensive himself, long before this story broke. Earlier in the summer Star made other cheating allegations against the That 70’s Show star, and he hinted at a lawsuit when he reacted via Twitter. “I think Star magazine calling me a ‘cheater’ qualifies as defamation of character. I hope my lawyer agrees.”
Two minutes after that posting he tweeted: “STAR magazine – you don’t get to stand behind ‘freedom of the press’ when you are writing fiction.” Demi then chimed in, tweeting back to her husband, “Excellent point my love!”
