Liberty is being repped by famed lawyer Laura Wasser and has also asked for spousal support from Rupert, as well as attorney’s fees.

Last summer, Rupert issued a public apology after being involved in a cheating scandal with his Snow White and the Huntsman actress Kristen Stewart.

    @Linda Tuttle: 22 years old is an adult. She most certainly knows the difference between right and wrong, and what a marriage and family is. Whether or not she was/is engaged or married, it doesn’t give her the right to go around sleeping with married men, just like he knew damn well that he was married and had children. She is as equal to blame as he is.

  • Aditi

    I bet Kristen felt guilty about this for complete 15 mins & got over. She is surrounded by ‘yes’ people and enablers including her parents which is why she has never learned to act as a responsible adult. I’m sure all the people around her said “Its not your fault babygirl. Liberty is weak woman” when this report came out

  • agirl

    If they didn’t both feel guilty they wouldn’t have rushed to People magazine with the public apology. It’s only a matter of time before Rob calls it quits if he already hasn’t

  • Aditi

    I’m 98% sure that she has lied to Rob about the real nature of her affair so her main priority right now is to come up with a good explanation to convince him that it was indeed momentary thing. She is truly shameless!

  • Toni

    I’m sure Kristen’s PR team is working over time to disfuse this anyway they can and to make her out to be the victim. Just like her obsessd fans are coming to her defense. Liberty realized she couldn’t trust her man any longer and did the right thing. Rob, get you head out of Kristen’s A$$ and drop her like a bad habbit.

    Being 22, not married, not engaged doesn’t give you a free pass. She allowed herself to be in that situation however she got there. It was not just a ONE time meeting. The paparazzi had gotten word weeks prior that she was involved with this guy and was waiting for an opportunity to catch them.
    She knew his wife and had spent time with her and her kids. So, don’t get on a lofty bandwagon for Stewart. Unless she was the village idiot, she knew what she was doing and she knew it was wrong. Yet, she continued to sneak around, lie to her friends and lie to Pattinson.
    Yes, she’s 22 years old and for years her fans were talking about how smart, how mature she was. What happened to that? Now, they’re saying she was young, she didn’t know what she was doing, she was manipulated. She did what she wanted and got b.itch slapped by reality. She has to deal with the consequences like everyone else.
    Personally, I think she’s a dead bore and she knows it. She pretends to be cool and hip, but if you are those things you don’t have to pretend or try to convince other people. You just are. Films is her way of escaping because she can do things in them that she’d be afraid to do in life. The ONE bold thing she did in life, slapped the s.hit out of her and she’s going to hear about it for years to come. She’s a fraud imo.
    I doubt seriously that Pattinson is still her bf. They had to ‘make up’ to publicized their film. That’s done, now he’s on to do his own thing.
    Good luck to them both, but let’s not pretend that she’s anything other than what she is, a backstabbing, selfish, over-indulged brat. Even her mother didn’t make excuses for her.

  • Reality Bites

    Don’t blame the girl who cozied up to Rupert and Liberty, had dinner in their home, took their kids out for ice cream then didn’t think twice to screw Rupert in a car? Rupert made a mistake that is for sure and he paid the biggest price for it too. He lost his sequel, his budding career as a director, his wife, and whatever money he made from his short directing career and now fans are asking Kristen be considered blameless? Talk about getting the short end of the stick.. I feel sorry for Rupert at this point. I don’t blame Liberty for leaving.. but Kristen Stewart is NOT BLAMELESS. Be real!

  • Oh, Really

    @T: I’ve known men who loved their wives and their families but when faced with a flirtatious, aggressive young, pretty girl have succumbed to temptation and then horribly regretted it. It has been known to happen.

  • Oh, Really


    It took two to cheat but only one got punished. This decision basically ruined Rupert’s entire professional and personal life. People are waiting to see the other shoe drops on Stewart… as it should.

  • Oh, Really

    @Linda Tuttle:

    Really? Take a look at that again. Who has more clout in Hollywood? A first time director or one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood? Who had the most to lose? Rupert. Who took the most heat and had his life destroyed? Rupert. How exactly could he have manipulated her? Offered her a role in the sequel;? LOL! That was already guaranteed hers. No casting couch power play here. Stewart was obviously the initiator in this relationship and Rupert got duped.

  • niagirl

    He’ll come out of this just fine. Snow white got two oscars noms not bad for his first time out. Like most men who cheat, we’ll forget and move on. Kristen on the other hand is the one who will lose. Claire Danes was bumped from movies to television. Sienna Miller has made the move with HBO and they both got Globe noms. So Kristen can still have a career maybe not on the big screen. Especially if every married man is gonna back out of doing a movie with her. I get it she’ll be poison for a while but people will come around ala Elizabeth Taylor. Go to cable girl.

  • yesiam

    @lol: They are both to blame. The difference is that, unlike Kristen, There isn’t any delusion Rupert Saunder fans trying to defend his actions. He is too blame, and so is she, and that’s THAT.

  • Betsy

    I’m so Glad, now he can get back together with Kristen Stewart! K-Stew wants a real man, not a little boy. They had so much fun and passion together. Lib can get a new boyfriend quickly, she doesn’t need him. She gets all her pleasure from Athena-Toys-Dot-com

  • Jaszy13

    Wow, files for divorce the same week her naked self
    Is on the cover of “LOVE” magazine doesn’t seem to be to devastated, more like loves the attention

  • Julia

    So what?People get divorced everyday in the world.Everybody knows they were going to divorce anyway,so it’s not a surprise either,and looks like it was amicable,not that dramatic.But you should know that the only one that cheated was Rupert,because Robert and Kristen’s relationship is fake anyway.Their contract will be up soon.

  • JumpinJak

    @Oh, Really: think kristen is getting punished enough as well, people are placing all the blame on her and nobody says anything about rupert as if he had no part to play in the cheating scandal. ive seen comments on other sites wishing that kristen would die along with being called a S**t, a wh**re etc when nobody really knows f**k all about what happened that day but continue making speculations and judgements based on a few pictures.what kristen did was wrong as she is 50% to blame when it comes to the cheating but she should not be 100% blamed for liberty filing for divorce. they tried to work out their problems but looks like the marriage counselling was not successful

    although there is something about rupert that makes me think he has possibly cheated before

  • Jaszy13

    Wow, filing for divorce the same week your naked pictures appear on the cover of “LOVE” magazine….not to devastated more like loving the attention

  • yesiam

    @JumpinJak: Rupert doesn’t have fans left and right trying to defend his action. No one cared about him before and no one cares about him afterward. That’s why it LOOKS like Kristen takes the blame. She was, after all, the most famous and the public figure out of the two.

  • Wendy

    @aquarius64: What relationship?Robsten is only a PR stunt to promote their movies.Soon they’ll “break up”,but because the contract will be over in few months.She never cheated on Rob,because their “relationship” simply doesn’t exist,it’s staged.The only guilty of the end of the marriage is Rupert,who’s stupid.Kristen never dated Rob for real,but now with this divorce coming,their PR teams will have to make them pretend the last “break up” earlier,and you all will still think he dumped

  • JumpinJak

    @yesiam: there is no defending what they BOTH did although only thing people know is that they kissed and shared a few hugs while the rest is a mystery. exactly nobody cares about rupert which is the point I was making, all the blame just seems to be in one direction cos he will fade into obscurity as nobody really knew who he was before the scandal,same goes for liberty

  • yesiam

    @JumpinJak: I agree with you except for when you say all the blame is falling on one direction. Just because people don’t actively bring up his name when talking about this whole deal, it doesn’t mean that those people find him blameless. The fact is people talk about Kristen’s because she is the biggest celebrity. And, come on, the public details of what happen might be sparse, but one has to be very naive to not be able to connect the dots. I would call it a “mystery”, really. That seems to imply that the issue is a bigger enigma that it is.

    As for Liberty, I wouldn’t even bring her into the discussion because she was the wife and, in the end, a victim of the whole situation. She was known in her circle of work. The cheating scandal brought her name out of the realm, precisely because of Kristen’s celebrity status. Bottom line, this is cheating scandal was so publicized because of Kristen’s involvement. Ergo, of course she’s going to be the person that people will talk about the most. It has more to do with their previous celebrity status (pre-scandal) than to whom people are assigning blame.

  • yesiam

    @yesiam: I WOULDN’T call it a “mystery”, I meant.

  • Carrie

    Kristen should be ashamed of herself.

  • Suz

    Seriously who cares, who knew Liberty Ross 6months ago and also there were problems in their marriage before this, If Liberty cared about her kids she wouldn’t be dating a man aged 59 and pose nude.

  • Kstew’s lip biting

    Kstew hypnotized Rupert with her awesome lip biting “acting” skillz
    LOL :D

  • aquarius64

    @Wendy: If you’re claiming she and Rob never dated, that means they both conned the public for four years and allowed some to believe the relationship was real, all to make money and line their pockets. People will be more angry for being played for suckers. And never confirming the relationship will NOT get them out of the mess (only the Twihards will lap it up); they allowed the presumption to incubate. Right or wrong, outside the fandom many will see them as frauds who took their hard-earned money. And studios will notice – if they see they will not be supported, the studios will view them as box office poison and won’t hire them (so far Kristen is there). If the relationship is a lie as you claim, it’s a lie they are going to have to maintain to keep their careers. If any evidence of what you claim surfaces it will finish them both.

  • M

    Well done Kristen Stewart you are officially a HOMEWRECKER! Hope you and Rob never get back together! Especially when he could do 1 million times better and with someone who is not a HOMEWRECKER that didn’t care to think about the poor young children of the family you ruined!
    She doesn’t deserve to be happy let alone settle down with someone!

  • Debby

    Why is the woman always the one who is called a homewrecker? Considering liberty and rupert were already having problems before the scandal,liberty herself said she felt like she was a single parent raising two kids. The infidelity probable resulted in old problems resurfacing again that were never properly dealt. If it is true that she filed for divorce papers 2 years ago,what if she only stayed with rupert because he was the only steady income they had as it does not seem like she has worked in years.without him she probably does not have much money which is why she is asking for him to pay all the legal fees and provide spousal support

  • http://n/a nahnah

    So what if they were having problems. That doesn’t give someone the right to ingratiate themselves into a marriage thats none of their business. My grandparents are celebrating 67 years together, and as they told me, any marriage thats true and real WILL EXPERIENCE PROBLEMS, every marriage will be tested in one way or another. NO marriage that last a significant amount of time will be rainbows and sunshine forever and ever. It doesn’t give no man or woman a right to insert themselves in that marriage. Stop making excuses, for a selfish, self absorbed, entitled no talent. She helped wreck a home, and the aftermath will hurt a 5 and a 7 year old more than anyone else. She had a hand in that willingly. I can’t believe I use to like this chick, now she’s nothing but a phoney poser.

  • Hypocrisy

    I wonder if the same people defending Kristen Stewart also defend Angelina Jolie the same way.

  • aquarius64

    What’s the deal?

  • Tracy

    @T: YES she did cheat on Michael with Rob. That is all the more reason Rob should have known Kristen would cheat on him. You will loose them the same way you got them. That is why I don’t feel sorry for Rob. Karma is a bitch.

  • SammiPage

    The fans for kristian and Angie are crazy. Angie is all about her image since she hooked up with brad, and has a great pr team. Both are homereckers .

  • Blue

    I actually think it sad to throw it all away for a few make outs, it’s wrong , but too hasty, imo, unless it was a lot more. I don’t think so, and he is married, but they were probably on the r ocks anyway.

  • Suz

    @nahnah: jealous much, what Liberty Ross a friend of yours.

  • Suz

    @nahnah: so Liberty Ross dating a 59 year old is not going to hurt the kids, seriously.

  • Jay

    Am I only one who thinks Liberty and Rupert already broke up in last Nov?
    I mean, Summit Entertainment gave them BIG money to keep quiet. I doubt Breaking Dawn 2 was such a big hit if they were divorced at that time. Congrats Kristen, you got a sick money!

  • http://n/a nahnah


    Jealous of who? I liked kristen stewart, and I don’t really care about liberty ross. I do however feel sorry for two small kids who’s home is broken b/c of their dumbass father and the joke that is kristen stewart. Sick of the excuses, made for stewart just b/c she wasn’t the married one. It’s bullshit and completely unrealistic to expect for marriages to not go through some ups and downs, and its nothing but an excuse to stick your nose in a troubled marriage just b/c its troubled…… As if problems give’s someone the right to involve themselves with that persons’s spouse. Fact is, kristen didn’t give a crap, now deal with the consequences.



  • Cree

    KStew is loathsome. She isn’t sorry for anything except getting caught.

  • Debby

    @EllaBlue: that would make Rob a cheater too as he was dating nikki reed

    Kristen’s team must be working overtime now.

  • GoodforLib

    Anyone who cheats is a disgusting, selfish, greedy, inconsiderate, untrustworthy and disrespectful person who does not have dignity or integrity – and therefore they do not deserve to be trusted or respect, since they clearly have no honesty, loyalty or respect themselves. Both Kristen and Rupert are to blame and both should be ashamed of themselves. They are both adults… Even teenagers know better. They made their decision and choice their own actions, so both must take the responsibility. By cheating, not only did Rupert betray his wife, but he betrayed his whole family and his kids will never forget. I don’t understand how he thought he could get away with it. Cheaters ALWAYS get caught! Eventually all secrets come out, whether you realize it or not… Its gonna come back to bite you in the butt somehow one day. I have no intention of seeing any movie Rupert directs ever again. The guy is a perverted, creepy low-life. I feel bad for the children involved, but they will realize that their mother made the best decision. Forgiving someone and moving on does not mean that you have to let them back into your life and resume the same relationship , you can forgive and move on but still breakup and find someone better – because if someone cheats on you even once then they are not good enough for you. Once trust is broken, you’re gonna have a tough time trusting that person again and its not worth it to feel insecure in a relationship. Liberty can do better and I heard before that she was already moving, good for her… She deserves a better and faithful guy.

  • KMA

    @RupertPantsDown:Kristen wasn’t raped either. Both are a couple of low life scums.
