This certainly coincides with everything we heard last week about a moving truck being spotted in front of Ashton and Demi's house.
During the event, Ashton maintained his professionalism, smiled to the crowd, and introduced a performance by Usher. He also spoke about "My DNA Foundation," which he formed with Demi to fight against child sex trafficking.
We're ALSO hearing that he was still wearing his wedding ring…so perhaps he hasn't given up hope yet.
What do U think? Is Ashton's solo appearance a sign that it's over between him and Demi?
