Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have been separated for more than a year and although neither has yet filed for divorce, they've been privately working towards their financial settlement.

But according to a new report, the former couple may be headed for a public court battle over money.

Lawyers for both are “trying to negotiate a settlement out of court and out of the public eye,” sources have told The New York Post.

However, there are indications that the divorce could become acrimonious because Kutcher – the highest paid actor on TV -- is allegedly unwilling to give his ex a huge payout.

“They still haven’t reached an agreement over money, because Ashton earned substantially more during the final years of their marriage,” a source tells The Post.

“But he doesn’t want to pay a large settlement.”

If the negotiations drag on for much longer, another source says, “The discussion could boil over into a public court battle.”

Rumors that the former couple has been butting heads over money have been rumbling for a few weeks.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported, an insider has accused Kutcher, 34, of being “cheap” even though he earns a massive $24 million a season for Two and a Half Men.

The actor is currently dating his former That 70s Show co-star Mila Kunis.

And despite reports that she is devastated by her estranged husband’s new romance, Moore, 49, looked radiant at a New York charity event on Wednesday night.
