Liberty Ross‘ world was shaken this past July when her husband was caught cheating with Kristen Stewart. According to sources, she really tried very hard to save her marriage, but in the end couldn’t make it work (who could!?). They just couldn’t get past the infidelity, and could never learn to trust her husband again. After 10 years of marriage, Liberty finally decided to pull the plug.
After one of the most trying (and public) years of her life, Liberty Ross is ready to liberate herself from husband Rupert Sanders. As revealed on Friday Jan. 25, the British model, 34, filed for divorce from the director, 41, after ten years of marriage and two kids (Skyla, 7, and Tennyson, 5).
The move (Ross asks for joint custody of the kids, spousal support and attorney’s fees) isn’t exactly shocking: Despite several amicable meet ups with the kids, the twosome had appeared to be mostly estranged ever since Sanders was caught (in exclusive Us Weekly photos) having a midsummer fling with Kristen Stewart, the 22-year-old star of his Hollywood blockbuster Snow White and the Huntsman.
“This was a long time coming,” one source tells Us Weekly, explaining that, in the aftermath of the shocking tryst, Sanders “did want to try to repair the relationship and didn’t want a divorce.”
Ross, who picked up her life and career in London to move with her husband to Hollywood a couple years ago, “was more than a little upset,” adds a second insider. “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 stunning brunette, who walked in Alexander Wang’s NYC Fashion Show last fall, hinted at changes to come in a confessional video series for the designer. “[This year was] the end of some things and the beginning of something else,” she continued. “Beginnings and endings are always really exciting.”
By contrast, in the wake of her betrayal (and a very public apology) Stewart mended things with her longtime love Robert Pattinson; although the British hunk is now filming in Australia, the Twilight costars were most recently spotted together at a private Golden Globes afterparty in Hollywood Jan. 13.
In related news, (sort of), I found this random new photo of Liberty Ross posing completely nude. She shot the black and white photo for Love Magazine, and I’m not really sure what the point was. (Other than she has an insanely smoking hot body, and why the hell not.) The picture is NSFW – and you can see it after the jump!
