Liberty Ross Has Filed For Divorce From Rupert Sanders

Liberty Ross Files For Divorce From Rupert Sanders After Kristen Stewart Tryst

Liberty Ross and Rupert Sanders have officially called time on their marriage.

The British model-actress has filed for divorce from the Snow White and The Huntsman director in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

According to TMZ, Ross, 34, has hired celebrity lawyer Laura Wasser, who has also handled cases for Kim Kardashian, Britney Spears, and Heidi Klum, and is asking for joint custody of their children — seven-year-old Skyla and five-year-old Tennyson — as well as spousal support.

Sanders, 41, who is represented by attorney Lance Spiegel, has reportedly filed a response to the petition and is also asking for joint custody. While Sanders is not seeking spousal support, he has requested that the cost of the proceedings are split with Ross.

Ross and Sander’s nine-year-marriage was subjected to worldwide scrutiny after explosive pictures of Sanders and actress Kristen Stewart were published last July by Us Weekly magazine.

During the resulting furor, both Ross and Sanders’ relationship and Stewart and Robert Pattinson’s came under intense speculation during promotion for both TheTwilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2, and Pattinson’s Cosmopolis.
