Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher are now officially divorced.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Scott Gordon finalized the couple's split on Tuesday, roughly a year after Kutcher sought to end the couple's marriage.

Moore, 51, and Kutcher, 35, were married in September 2005 and the actress announced they had separated in November 2011.

According to TMZ, which first reported the news, the reason it took so long to finalize the divorce came down to money.

Moore had wanted spousal support from Kutcher but reportedly backed down on that claim, and the two reached a financial settlement in which the actor "gave Demi somewhat more than he had to," TMZ reports.

The former couple has no children together. During their marriage, they started a foundation to combat sexual exploitation of girls around the globe.

Kutcher stars in "Two and a Half Men" and is currently dating his "That '70s Show" co-star Mila Kunis.

Moore starred in 2011's "Margin Call" and appears in the upcoming film "Very Good Girls." She was previously married to Bruce Willis and the pair had three daughters.
