Liberty Ross Collects “Guilt Money” in Divorce from Rupert Sanders, 43, After He Cheated with Kristen Stewart, 24

Rupert Sanders Get Divorce from Liberty RossThere’s never a short­age of drama in celebrity May-December rela­tion­ships, espe­cially when there’s an affair involved. Direc­tor Rupert Sanders, 43, will prob­a­bly never be able to live down his now infa­mous May-December romance with 24-year-old actress Kris­ten Stew­art, who was sup­posed to be in a com­mit­ted rela­tion­ship with her Twi­light co-star Robert Pat­tin­son at the time.

Although Rupert Sanders and Kris­ten Stewart’s illicit May-December romance cost them both a lot in terms of their careers, rep­u­ta­tions, and rela­tion­ships, there’s one per­son who cer­tainly came out a win­ner after the whole affair scan­dal surfaced—Sanders’ ex-wife, Lib­erty Ross.

Ross’ divorce from Rupert Sanders was recently set­tled and it’s safe to say he’s still pay­ing for his affair scan­dal with Kris­ten Stew­art. Sanders has report­edly given up more than half of the for­mer celebrity couple’s mar­i­tal assets, includ­ing his share of their $2 mil­lion home in Hol­ly­wood Hills. The dis­graced direc­tor is believed to have given in to the uneven divorce set­tle­ment because, accord­ing to a source, “He paid her guilt money.” Well, at least he’s tak­ing respon­si­bil­ity for their mar­riage crumbling.

To add even more salt to the wound, Lib­erty Ross has since moved on after fil­ing for divorce and found her­self a May-December romance of her own with an older, richer man. The 35-year-old model is now report­edly dat­ing Jimmy Iovine, the 61-year-old co-founder of Inter­scope Records and Beats By Dr. Dre, with an esti­mated net worth of $950 mil­lion. As far as celebrity May-December rela­tion­ships go, Lib­erty Ross obvi­ously traded up.
