Since it seems the two did not have a prenuptial agreement and California is a no-fault, community property state, the two split the earnings they acquired while married. That means, according to Celebrity Net Worth, that the couple split $290 million dollars. However, TMZ sources said Kutcher was “a little more generous than he had to be.”

Real Estate

Real estate, especially in California, tends to be a more solid and stable investment than IPOs and other stocks. Therefore, it’s not surprising that Kutcher also holds some property in the state. He owns a beachfront estate in Carpinteria, California, which he purchased with wife Mila Kunis, according to Celebrity Net Worth. His other real estate holdings are “private,” according to the site.
