Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher "prayed in unison for forgiveness" at a special Kabbalah ceremony recently.
The Hollywood stars parted ways in 2011, following rumours the actor had been unfaithful. Since then they have been struggling to reach a settlement, apparently disagreeing over the split of money and assets.
However, it has now been claimed the pair have decided on the terms of their split and they met on Yom Kippur, the Jewish holy day of atonement, for a special 'divorce ceremony' at the Los Angeles Kabbalah Centre.
"Demi and Ashton have been at loggerheads about their divorce for months, but now she wants to move on and smooth things over," a source told British magazine Grazia. "They caught up at a conference for their Thorn foundation. Demi told Ashton she was ready to let go of their marriage. Kabbalah was very important in their relationship, so they decided to spiritually end things on Yom Kippur. With some of their closest friends around them, including Rabbi Yehuda Berg, who officiated at their wedding, they prayed in unison for forgiveness. Ashton held Demi's hand and Demi apologised to him about the way she's behaved at times since the split. He did the same. It was very emotional."
It seems both stars have moved on from the failed marriage. Demi is believed to be dating businessman Peter Morton, while Ashton has found love with Mila Kunis.
According to insiders, Ashton is eager to finalise divorce so he can marry Mila.
"Demi's agreed a settlement with Ashton which they'll finalise in court. Their divorce ceremony was the first step towards putting everything behind them," the source added. "While Demi felt drained after the ceremony, she said it was like a spiritual peace treaty. They hugged before going their separate ways. Demi even told Ashton she was happy for him and Mila."
Ashton and Demi sparked rumours that relations had thawed when they were spotted chatting amicably after getting the same flight earlier this month.
