Who Is Paul Carafotes? Meet The Man Demi Moore Had An Affair With The Night Before She Married Freddy Moore

Demi Moore’s new memoir, Inside Out, offers no shortage of juicy details — and the gossip just keeps coming! The biggest reveal involved intimate details from her relationship with Ashton Kutcher where she alleges that threesomes were a frequent occurrence in their relationship. She also alleges that Kutcher’s cheating led to the ultimate downfall of their relationship. As if this wasn’t bad enough, readers also learned that Demi’s mother solicited her daughter to a man for $500 in exchange for having sex with Demi. 

Another bit of juicy information Demi shared in her memoir was a bit tricky to uncover because she kept the person involved in her affair under wraps. In the book, Demi revealed on the night before her wedding to rocker Freddy Moore, she cheated on her soon-to-be husband with an unnamed actor. From the few detaisl she provided, Internet sleuths were able to piece together Demi’s timeline, leading them to speculate if the actor in question was Paul Carafotes. After rumors circulated, Paul came forward and confirmed the rumors were true.

It's unclear if Paul and Demi continued their affair or stayed in touch following the affair but we do know one thing is true: Demi went ahead with marrying Freddy. Over the years, it can be assumed Demi and Paul went their separate ways.

Here's what we know about Paul Carafotes:

1. Demi climbed into Paul's window to see him that night.

“Yes, I’m the actor she was referring to,” the 56-year-old told Radar exclusively. “We were having an affair. I was 21, starring in my second feature. She was 18, and this was her first.”

“I told her I was tired and going to bed, but she was persistent,” he recalled. “I told her if she wanted to come over, I’d leave my kitchen window open, but she’d have to climb the fire escape. Next thing I know, I’m being woken up — Demi is standing over me with a bottle of Dom Pérignon saying, ‘Let’s party!’ She was wild. We were all that time,” Paul detailed.
