After a Hollywood career that has spanned nearly four decades, actress Demi Moore is preparing to spill all of her secrets in a tell-all memoir. And, a report claims that her ex-husband, Ashton Kutcher, is “freaked” about Moore airing his dirty laundry.
The 56-year-old actress was married to Kutcher from 2005 to 2013, and an insider told Radar Online that Kutcher has known for a long time that this book was in the works. Moore has been talking about the memoir for years and reportedly carried a Dictaphone with her during their marriage to record her thoughts and memories for a tell-all.

Kutcher doesn’t know the specifics about what Moore will include in the book, or if she will spill any of his secrets.
“Now it’s happening, and Ashton’s freaked,” said the source. “He wants reassurances – in person – that Demi won’t be embarrassing him. He’s not the only one in this position. Pretty much everyone in her world is wondering what she’s going to hit them with, and what’s worse is that she’s refusing to set anyone’s mind at rest over it.”
Kutcher has since moved on and married his That 70’s Show co-star Mila Kunis, but he still considers the kids that Moore had with her ex-husband, Bruce Willis, to be part of his family.
The news of Moore’s memoir comes at the same time Kutcher was listed as a potential witness in the trial for alleged killer, Michael Gargiulo. He is being charged with the murder of Kutcher’s ex-girlfriend, Ashley Ellerin, who was killed in her Hollywood apartment more than 18 years ago.
Ellerin was a fashion student who secretly worked as a stripper and sex worker before her brutal slaying, and Kutcher was supposed to take Ellerin on a date the night she was killed. However, when he showed up to her apartment, she didn’t answer the door, so Kutcher left.
He is expected to take the stand during the trial.

According to childhood friend, Carolyn Murnick, Ellerin was secretly working at a strip club, working bachelor parties, and pole dancing to earn extra money. After her death in 2001, the police report claimed that Ellerin used drugs recreationally, which Murnick says her friend did to help her get through her paid sexual encounters.
Gargiulo is currently on trial and facing three murder charges. In addition to Ellerin, he allegedly killed two other women in Los Angeles between 2001 and 2008. Prosecutors have described him as a “serial psychosexual thrill killer,” and they are seeking the death penalty in the case.
He has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity.
