There’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.
