“Ashton is deeply concerned for Demi,” the source said People, noting Kutcher was in Brazil to work on an ad campaign when he heard about Moore’s hospitalization.
“He still cares about her and wants the best for her. But their marriage is ending and they are both moving on with their live,” the source said.
Meanwhile, in the days following Demi Moore’s surprising hospitalization Monday night, the details that have emerged are even more perplexing, particularly the latest reports that Moore was inhaling nitrous oxide from aerosol cans, also known as whip-its, the night the 911 call was placed from her home in Los Angeles, MTV reports.
During Moore’s recent crisis, Kutcher was in the South American country to shoot a catalog for the Brazilian fashion brand Colcci. He also attended a show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week and stepped out with Brazilian celebrities.
Kutcher has yet to make any official statement about Moore, nor has he expressed anything about the matter via his frequently updated Twitter account.
Instead, on Monday – the night paramedics responded to a 911 call at Moore’s home after she suffered an apparent seizure – he Tweeted a picture of himself “surfing the streets of Sao Paulo” in the rain.
The theories about why Moore turned to nitrous oxide in the first place all relate back to her very public and emotional split from Kutcher back in November, when Moore announced the breakup with “sadness and a heavy heart” after months of not-so-quiet rumblings that her husband had been unfaithful.
Friends have said that shortly after her split with Kutcher, the 49-year-old began to have trouble sleeping and developed a severe problem with prescription drugs.
“Really, it was over the last year her friends saw a change,” one source said about her split from husband Ashton Kutcher. “She wasn’t sleeping as well, didn’t seem to be eating and looked really gaunt.”
“She has not taken care of her health at all lately and has lost a ton of weight,” he added.
The source says that Kutcher is now on his way back to Los Angeles and will be back at work on the set on Monday.
