Look away, Demi ...Kutcher snapped with mystery blonde

WHO'S that girl? New photos have emerged of Ashton Kutcher driving away with a blonde who looks identical to his alleged lover Sara Leal.

Demi Moore's husband (33) was snapped in the company of the stunning young woman three months before a reported nightclub 'fling'.

It's understood the woman at the centre of the alleged affair, Sara Leal (23), is now looking for $250,000 for her silence.

The Two and a Half Men star was caught on camera leaving the Roosevelt Hotel with the woman and the company of bodyguards back in June after watching the Beacher's Madhouse show with friends.

In the photographs which have just emerged, Ashton is seen driving off with her in the back seat of his car.

His wife, Demi Moore (48), was not in attendance.

Neither party has confirmed the split but friends say that their six-year marriage has been on the rocks for some time.

In the past few days, Demi's online posts have become increasingly dark and cryptic.

She uploaded an image of herself lying on a bed with her eyes closed with the caption: "I see through you."

Last week she quoted a Greek philosopher, saying: "When we are offended at any man's fault, turn to yourself and study your own failings. Then you will forget your anger."

And yesterday Ashton appeared to address the rumours for the first time.

He provided a link to a song entitled Don't Believe the Hype before writing: "When you ASSUME to know that which you know nothing of you make an ASS out of U and ME."

It's understood that Leal is hoping the That 70s show star will stump up the cash or she could turn to a media outlet to sell her story.

It's reported that she is prepared to keep intimate details of their alleged fling private and help the actor save his marriage -- for a named amount.

Sources said that the actor and Leal hooked up last weekend after partying in San Diego.

The latest alleged encounter happened on the 12th floor of the Hard Rock Hotel in San Diego, California, in the early hours of Saturday -- the Hollywood A-lister couple's sixth wedding anniversary.

The news came as Ashton took over from troubled Charlie Sheen in comedy show Two and a Half Men.

And it's not the first time that the young actor has been accused of cheating -- Brittney Jones (21) said she slipped Kutcher her number after seeing him out on a bowling trip.

She claims they had sex on a sofa in his LA mansion three days later while Demi was away shooting a movie.

But Kutcher's lawyer called her story "lies".
