A report from TMZ said a source close to the 50-year-old actress said a financial settlement agreement is close, and Moore is asking for a lot.
Moore was "really hurt" by Kutcher, 35, the source said, calling him a "bad husband."
Moore has greater personal wealth than her soon-to-be ex-husband, though he's currently the highest-paid actor on television, so it would be unlikely for a judge to award her spousal support.
Still, the report said, the sentiment of revenge is "clearly there," and Moore's lawyer "knows the more Demi asks for, the better she'll do in the end."
