Speculation of a split has been fueled by the Twitter-happy couple remaining strangely silent about each other on the social networking platform. But Kutcher, 33, did take to the social networking site on Wednesday to tweet a telling link to his Spotify account, which was playing the Public Enemy song "Don't Believe the Hype." Sounds like a message to us.
And, if that wasn't clear enough, Kutcher hit Twitter again on Thursday to spell it out a little better. "When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME," he wrote. We read you loud and clear, Ashton!
Rumors started swirling that there might be trouble in May-December paradise when Moore, 48, cryptically tweeted a quote from the Greek philosopher Epictetus on Sept. 23, the day before the couple's sixth wedding anniversary. "When we are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself & study your own failings," she wrote. "Then you will forget your anger."
Three days later, Moore posted a Twitpic showing her lying in bed with her eyes closed, with the caption "I see through you...." Many commenters on the photo assumed that the caption was a reference to Kutcher.
Speculation was further fueled when Kutcher and Moore celebrated their anniversary on different sides of the country: Kutcher was in San Diego partying with former That '70s Show costar Danny Masterson, while Moore was in New York City for a film premiere.
Then there were tabloid reports that Kutcher cheated on Moore, with a woman named Sarah Leal claiming she'd slept with Ashton at the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego last Saturday. Though this wasn't the first time Kutcher had been accused of cheating on Moore, the fact that he didn't issue a denial -- as he did last time -- only added fuel to the tabloid fire.
Still, if Kutcher says we shouldn't believe the hype, we're optimistic enough to believe him -- and we hope we're right.
