Rupert Sanders, Liberty Ross Divorcing in Wake of Kristen Stewart Scandal
Looks like Bella really did wreck this home.
British actress-model Liberty Ross has filed for divorce from lensman Rupert Sanders, her husband of nearly a decade, after she reportedly realized she could never forget his high-profile affair with actress Kristen Stewart. Sanders hit headlines last July, when a roving paparazzo caught the Snow White and the Huntsman director on a deserted Los Angeles street making out in a parked car with 22-year-old Stewart, who he’d met on the set of the hit movie.
Ross has petitioned Los Angeles County Superior Court requesting spousal support and joint custody of the former couple’s two children Sykla, seven, and Tennyson, five. Rupert has also requested joint custody and has asked that he and Liberty split the court costs between them.
Sanders worked to repair the marriage in the aftermath of his affair and even convinced Liberty to join him in couple’s therapy. But tipsters tell Us magazine that Liberty, 34, was more than a little ticked off over Rupert’s dalliances with Kristen — which both parties insist never became physical
“They gave it a shot for the kids, [but] she was just so angry…She’s the kind of person who wouldn’t really ever get over it.”
The summer fling may have killed Roop’s wedded bliss, but Kristen’s moving along just swimmingly. After a brief split from Twilight co-star/real-life squeeze Robert Pattinson, the young lovers reunited and are recently spent the holidays with Robert’s family in Europe.
