Liberty Ross

Files For Divorce

From Rupert Sanders

1/26/2013 10:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0125-getty-liberty-ross-rupert-sandersLiberty Ross has filed for divorce from her cheating hubby Rupert Sanders ... TMZ has learned.

Ross just filed her paperwork in L.A. County Superior Court.  She's asking for joint custody of their 2 children -- ages 5 and 7. 

Ross, who is repped by disso-queen Laura Wasser, is also asking for spousal support, as well as attorney's fees.

Sanders, who is repped by Lance Spiegel, also filed his response to the divorce petition.  He's also requesting joint custody.  He is not asking for spousal support.  As for attorney's fees, he wants to share the costs with Liberty.

Sanders famously cheated on Ross ... with Kristen Stewart, whom he was directing in "Snow White and the Huntsman."

As we first reported ... Ross and Sanders went to a shrink a number of times trying to work out their problems, but it was not meant to be.

BB not bb    

A psychiatrist can't cure you from being a jackass. She sees that she married a low-life and wants to escape. She would have to accept him for what he is,and he would have to control his urge to take advantage of younger women under his authority.

Obviously she deserves better but she already married and started a family with Mr. Slease. He said he is sorry and I suppose that means he wouldn't do it again. She could just keep him in the doghouse.

Men like this don't recognize a good thing when they have it, or if they do, they don't cherish it. I think Rupert took Liberty for granted and now she is mad. I guess he sees that she is worth keeping, but she can't trust him because he doesn't have enough affection for her to have been loyal to her.

That is probably what he has to work on, having a heart. Men in this culture treat women like a good time instead of someone to be devoted to. Adultery is a major sin in the Bible, but to some, it is just fun and games.

I must be the only person who thinks this whoooooole thing is sham. As private of a person as Kstew is...she just gets caught with this guy which makes her for the first time publicly acknowledge her dating there's so much of this story that is untold.

Kristin is not the problem.. It's the married man. He should understand his vows. She is just a squirl getting her nut.

Really should have done so a long time ago, what with his sudden realization he shouldn't have done it in the first place AFTER he was caught? PA leez. Pee eye gee.

I guess the only reason why this makes a story is because Kristen Stewart is the only well known star.

I never knew who Liberty Ross or her husband were until the "cheating scandal". Thanks to this scandal we finally know who they are!

I am sick and tired of people blaming Kristen for this mess. Even though she is NOT the one who is married and made vows to remain faithful, she wad the FIRST one to apologize for her mistake. Only THEN did Sanders follow with an apology.

She then suffered public bashing and embarrassment ever since. What else do you want her to do? Kill herself? I guess all of you who are bashing Kristen never made a mistake in your entire life. It's easy to hide behind a computer and bash people anonymously for mistakes that they have apologized for already.

I bet that if Liberty Ross's children start to do drugs one day, it will all be Kristen's fault too right? When will the harrassment end?

If it wasn't for Kristen, Mrs Ross would have never been able to make money posing nude for magazines now.

STOP using Kristen's name in order to make money!

At least she did try to work out the problems. But I also know that once your cheated on, the trust is never going to be the same. Honestly they both want joint cust of the kids, which is good.
I am also glad that he is feeling some heat that was flamed on K Stew the first time. it was BOTH that cheated. He deserves some heat.

Good for her. Glad to see she's gotten her self esteem in order. Alot of folks thought the whole thing was made up & she just went along with it. ?? How many women do you know that would want others thinking her spouse steps out & she doesn't care enough about herself or her kids to leave? Glad to see she's got it together now.
