Reports of Ashton Kutcher's extramarital flings are nothing new, though he always denied them in the past. The 33-year-old actor's brief affair with Brittany Jones, 21, whom he allegedly met at a Los Angeles area bowling alley, emerged in 2010, although it didn't exactly rock his marriage with Demi Moore.

More recently, however, Kutcher reportedly cheated on his wife -- whether this is the first time is debated -- with a 23-year-old woman, identified as Sara Leal, last weekend, on the eve of the couple's sixth wedding anniversary. Leal is rumored to be preparing for a tell-all interview, provided she gets paid a fortune, and has already met with an attorney.

The alleged mistress in the story, Leal has gone into hiding and has almost entirely deleted her online existence. According to a friend quoted in some reports, Leal was freaked out when the affair was made public and sought a Hollywood lawyer's help to keep herself out of trouble.

I'm friends with Sara Leal, and basically sh*t has hit the fan, the unidentified friend said, She told a few too many of her 'close friends' about her evening, or should I say morning, with Ashton Kutcher and now she is in hiding. She went as far as blocking her Facebook account yesterday and if you know Sara, you know she is addicted to FB. Her phone is completely off too.

TheDirty.com reported that Leal was demanding $250,000 from various media outlets for details of her alleged affair, even though what she really wanted was a payoff from Kutcher, a parting bribe of sorts. In addition, The Dirty.com published an e-mail, sent to editor Nik Ritchie Monday,, from someone who said she was a friend of Sara Leal.

The e-mail reads: Nik, I'm going to be straight to the point. I'm a female who.. happens to be friends with Sara Leal, probably not after this. I'm sick to my stomach over what happen last Friday night. Like most people on earth I worshiped Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore until Ashton Kutcher f****d my friend Sara Leal at 4:30AM technically Saturday morning in his room on the 12 floor at the Hardrock Hotel in San Diego. Ashton Kutcher told Sara Leal that him and Demi Moore are separated and the public doesn't know yet. Smooth line Ashton, she was going to f**k you anyway. Nik if you want to verify any of this just call Sara Leal yourself or ask Deena Omari. Better yet subpoena Ashton's bodyguard who took her phone before she came into the room.

The Daily Mail has published a photograph, taken three months back, of Kutcher accompanied by a blonde woman - not definitely identified as Sara Leal - as they were leaving the Roosevelt Hotel. If the blonde in the picture was indeed Sara Leal, why did it take this long for her friend to tell on her?

Certain reports are speculating that Leal is trying to cash in after being dumped by Kutcher, by threatening to publicize his dirty secrets.

Meanwhile, Leal's attorney, Keith Davidson, has advised her to stay away from the media, which could be why she has shut down her social networking accounts.

While all this was happening, Kutcher has posted a cheeky tweet, evidently about the rumors of marital strife, which suggests that one ought not to assume things.
