Ashton Kutcher has finally officially filed for divorce from Demi Moore, a little more than a year after their split. What took so long?

Well, apparently it was money issues — which is odd, since both of them are rolling in more green than the hills of Knockninny.

According to TMZ, Moore was demanding the same deal she got from Bruce Willis, which was reportedly gigantic. Though she is worth a ton more than Kutcher, he allegedly cheated on her. Perhaps in her mind he deserves to take a financial hit as a result.

So how is Moore handling this whole thing? The phrase “fiddledeedee” comes to mind. A TMZ source said the actress wanted to get divorced the day she left Kutcher, and that she is now “genuinely happy.”

Maybe that’s why she has been seen actin’ a fool all over the place, dancing like Whitney Houston at the moment of Bobby Brown’s prison release. Oh, snap!

Life isn’t so good

Nas is being sued by entertainment businessman Patrick Allocco, who claims he and his son were kidnapped and beaten after the rapper failed to appear at a show he organized.

TheSource.com says the “One Mic” entertainer was scheduled to perform in Angola on New Year’s Eve last year but was a no-show, despite pocketing more than $300,000.

Allocco claims he was then kidnapped at gunpoint and held for 50 days by local promoters who wanted their money back, during which time he alleges he was regularly beaten.

Nas eventually paid back the thugs and Allocco was released, but he claims that during his ordeal his home was foreclosed on and he lost his company. Allocco is suing in federal court for $10 million. “Hate Me Now?” Looks like it.

But is it really Nas’ fault that his bailing on a show resulted in violence? Scoop will be following this story fer sheezy.
