    Actors Ashton Kutcher (L) and Demi Moore have filed for divorce in Los Angeles.

    What was once a seemingly civilized, amicable split is now shaping up to be a courtroom showdown.

    Three months after Ashton Kutcher filed for divorce from Demi Moore, the actress has now submitted her own divorce response, setting the stage for a potentially heated legal tussle between the two.

    In documents filed Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court and obtained by E! News, Moore cites irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. She is seeking spousal support as well as compensation for her attorney's fees, in addition to other costs.

    That monetary tug-of-war could prove considerable: Last fall, Forbes named Kutcher TV's highest-paid actor, with a robust $24 million in earnings over the past year.

    The couple called it quits in November 2011 after six years of marriage in the wake of speculation that Kutcher had an alleged affair during a trip to San Diego a month before.

    By most accounts, the split appeared amicable, with Moore, 50, announcing the breakup with "great sadness" and Kutcher later tweeting, "I will forever cherish the time I spent with Demi."

    Kutcher, 35, has since rebounded with his former "That '70s Show" costar Mila Kunis. Moore, meanwhile, has been linked to New Zealand actor Martin Henderson as well as art dealer Vito Schnabel.
