Ashton Kutcher has a lot of explaining to do.
Just one day after reports claimed the “Two and a Half Men” star cheated on wife Demi Moore, new photos show Kutcher out with a woman who looks eerily similar to his alleged mistress.
Pictures taken on June 1 show Kutcher behind the wheel of his car with a woman in the backseat who bares a striking resemblance to Sara Leal, a 23-year-old blond coed who is claiming she slept with Ashton on Sept. 24 during a boys trip to San Diego.
Though it was assumed Kutcher had first met Leal during his recent getaway, photos taken of the two over the summer argue a different scenario. The two were photographed leaving the “Beacher’s Madhouse” show together at L.A.’s Roosevelt Hotel.
Following a full day of silence from the superstar couple, Kutcher tweeted a link to Public Enemy’s “Don’t Believe the Hype” during the early hours of Thursday morning.
Without further comment, the actor’s vague tweet could be interpreted as a response to reports that he cheated on his wife on the day of their sixth wedding anniversary.
The song’s lyrics include: “Some media is the wack/as you believe it’s true/it blows me through the roof/suckers, liars, get me a shovel/some writers I know are d— devils/for them I say, don’t believe the hype.”
He followed with another tweet, saying, “When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an A– out of U and ME.”
“Ashton and Demi have separated and the marriage is over,” an insider told Star magazine. “It was definitely a long time coming, but they’re finally done for good.
“Ashton was a serial cheater, and Demi just couldn’t take it anymore,” the source added. “She didn’t deserve to live that way. It’s a painful time for Demi.”
Kutcher, 33, and Moore, 48, have reportedly been living apart for months, and according to Star, they’re about to embark on an estimated $290 million divorce battle.
The couple has been living on opposite sides of the country, with Kutcher filming “Men” in Los Angeles and Moore working on the upcoming film “Magic Mike” in New York.
Considering the allegations, Moore’s recent behavior seems suspect.
On Sept. 12, she tweeted a photo of her own naked back along with the message: “remember…..you’ve got your own back.” And on Sept. 23, she posted a quote from Greek philosopher Epictetus, writing, “When we are offended at any man’s fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger.”
Kutcher was noticeably absent Monday night in New York when Moore celebrated the premiere of Lifetime’s “Five,” a series of films in which she helped direct. With divorce rumors escalating, the actress was a no-show at her own film event in L.A. Tuesday night.
