Liberty Ross files for divorce from director Rupert Sanders

British model and actress Liberty Ross has reportedly filed for divorce from Rupert Sanders, the “Snow White and the Huntsman” director who infamously cheated on her last summer with actress Kristen Stewart.

She’s asking for joint custody of their 5- and 7-year-old children, spousal support and attorney’s fees, in papers filed Friday in L.A. Superior Court, according to TMZ. Sanders, who filed his response Friday as well, also is seeking joint custody but wants to share the legal fees.

What Stewart called a “momentary indiscretion” with Sanders — pictures of which appeared more than momentarily all over the Internet — happened back in July.


Both parties publicly apologized, with Sanders, now 42, saying in a statement to People, “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family. My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”

Since then, the 22-year-old actress has gotten back together with her “Twilight” costar Robert Pattinson, while Ross reportedly told Sanders in August that she didn’t want him working with Stewart on a “Huntsman” sequel.

Stewart confirmed last month to Indiewire that she’ll indeed be starring in a sequel to “Huntsman,” saying, “I’m so excited about it, it’s crazy,” before noting that she wasn’t allowed to talk about it at all.

For that, she did not apologize.
