Last November, Demi Moore released a statement that she had decided to "end" her six-year marriage to Ashton Kutcher -- end, but not divorce.
The 49-year-old actress announced the split, but made no mention of filing for divorce from Kutcher following his cheating scandal with 23-year-old Sara Leal, and it may not just be a matter of semantics.
According to RadarOnline, neither Moore nor Kutcher has filed divorce papers to this day, prompting those close to the former couple to wonder if they were ever legally married in the first place.
"Some people think that they were just married in a symbolic Kabbalah ceremony and that they never actually filed the paperwork to make it legal," the source told the website."
While no papers have been filed, Kutcher has reportedly hired renowned divorce attorney Laura Wasser, who is also currently representing Kim Kardashian in her divorce.
Radar's source admits it's very strange the couple haven't filed for divorce yet, but says that the actress's hospitalization in January and subsequent stint in rehab could very well be the reason she has yet to file the papers.
"But now that she's out [of rehab] and doing better some people around her are surprised that she hasn't taken steps to end the marriage," the source explained. "They're wondering if the reason they haven't filed divorce papers is because there aren't any to file."
Since Moore announced the split, the two have kept their distance from each other, and Kutcher was rumored to have been linked to numerous women including Mila Kunis and Rihanna. Despite reports the two had reconciled at a friend's birthday party, sources say they were friendly with each other but there are no plans to get back together.
