It was previously reported that Demi and Ashton hit a roadblock over how to split their assets. New reports suggest Demi is now causing delays in the divorce out of spite for his new relationship.
“Demi has instructed her attorneys to delay negotiations as much as possible,” a source told RadarOnline.
“The main issue they have been fighting over has been the division of assets and the monetary settlement, but it’s now gotten to the point where Ashton is willing to cave in to all of Demi’s demands just to reach a settlement.”
The actress is said to be playing “hardball” every time the pair near an agreement and consistently makes up new demands.
The insider claims Demi is delaying negotiations because she’s so upset by his public display of affection with the Black Swan star.
“It’s a classic case of a woman scorned,” the insider said.
Ashton and Demi married in September 2005.
