Liberty Ross files for divorce after husband’s publicized affair
Filing for divorce is probably one of the hardest decisions a Las Vegas resident can make. It is rarely a hasty choice and may be a result of one significant event or a consistent trend of smaller happenings within a marriage.
Just as the last week came to an end, we learned that British model Liberty Ross has filed for divorce from her director husband Rupert Sanders. Many readers were not too familiar with the couple until their personal lives became extreme public last year. That’s when Sanders was photographed having a fling with 22-year-old Twilight star Kristen Stewart. Stewart was acting as Snow White in Snow White and the Huntsman, a film that Sanders was directing. Ross was also in the film, playing the role of Stewart’s mother.
Sanders publically apologized for the incident and said, “I am praying that we can get through this together.” At that time, Stewart also publically apologized to her boyfriend and Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson. The two have reportedly been able to reconcile after the incident.
Ross and Sanders have been married for 10 years and have two children together — a 7-year-old daughter and a 5-year-old son. Ross, 34, is reportedly asking for joint custody of the children, as well as spousal support and attorney’s fees.
The couple reportedly tried to fix their relationship after the publicized affair, but sources say Ross, who picked up her life and career in London and moved to Hollywood with her husband a few years ago, was very angry over the public ordeal.
