Demi Moore Explains Why She'll Stay 'Mrs. Kutcher' On Twitter
The actress says changing her name "isn’t a top priority."
Weeks after filing for divorce from Ashton Kutcher after six years of marriage, Demi Moore is finally addressing speculation over whether she'll change her name on Twitter.
The actress tweeted a defensive message on the social-networking site on Wednesday, venting: "changing my twitter name isn't a top priority now. sorry it bothers so many of u. should I not tweet until I do? does it really matter?"
Perhaps Moore's decision to keep her @mrskutcher handle has less to do with emotions than image: it could be worth it, in a branding sense, not to digitally divorce the actor on a platform they helped promote as an early-adopter celebrity couple. If she becomes just "Demi," losing that association with the Two and a Half Men star and startup investor, does she also lose her edge -- her brand -- as a tech-savvy mother of three?
Moore, 49, announced her decision to divorce Kutcher, 33, on Nov. 17, saying: "As a woman, a mother and a wife there are certain values and vows that I hold sacred, and it is in this spirit that I have chosen to move forward with my life."
