Affair With Kristen Stewart Nets Rupert Sanders' Ex A Landslide Settlement

Dan Harkins

Though Twilight star Kristen Stewart is reportedly back with Twilight movie lead Robert Pattinson again, her brief affair in 2012 with a married man, Rupert Sanders, will cost the director a hefty price.

A divorce ruling just handed down by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge awards supermodel Liberty Ross, Sanders' now-ex-wife and mother of his two children, a hefty share of the cheating director's estate.

According to International Business Times, Ross will receive not only $23,000-a-month in alimony and child support, and the couple's $1.2 million Hollywood Hills home, but also ownership of the insurance policies owned by the couple (below), a 50-percent share of their shared bank accounts and a 15-percent share of any profits earned by the Snow White and the Huntsman director. For life.

Rupert Sanders Pays Big In Divorce

The affair between Sanders and Stewart, though brief, was much publicized and clear-cut.

Though Sanders, 43, and Ross, 35, had been married since 2003 and have an 7-year-old son, Tennyson, and a 9-year-old daughter, Skyla, Sanders was caught by paparazzi kissing Stewart, 24, last year. If anyone had any doubts after rumors started circulating about the affair, the pictures published in US Weekly cleared away any remaining skepticism.

Ross and Stewart weren't strangers, either. In the Snow White movie, which has raked in more than $230 million at the box office alone, Stewart starred and Ross played her mother, Queen Eleanor.

Sanders publicly apologized to his "beautiful wife and heavenly children" after the viral storm started raining on the affair. Here's the statement that Kristen released in the way of issuing her own public apology:

"I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry."

According to the Daily Mail, Ross was "devastated" after the photos revealing the affair were made public. Kristen Stewart and Sanders were caught kissing in a parking garage in Hollywood.

That's not to say Ross hasn't moved on in style. She's reportedly now dating Interscope record mogul Jimmy Iovine, who Forbes reports is worth about $1 billion.
