Liberty Ross Trashes Her Ex-Husband, Rupert Sanders, Over His Affair with Twilight Star Kristen Stewart

Sugar Daddy Rupert Sanders Trashes By Liberty RossIt doesn’t come as too much of a sur­prise that a lot of sugar dad­dies are married—a sugar baby is just their way of hav­ing a lit­tle some­thing extra on the side. But what hap­pens when their affair is sud­denly revealed? What hap­pens to the wife that gets left behind?

It’s hard to for­get the scan­dal that rocked one of the most pop­u­lar celebrity cou­ples last sum­mer, Kris­ten Stew­art and Robert Pat­tin­son. Stew­art, 23, was caught hav­ing an illicit affair with her much older Snow White and the Hunts­man direc­tor, 42-year-old Rupert Sanders, who was mar­ried to model Lib­erty Ross at the time.

When Sanders’ wife found out about the celebrity couple’s affair, she tried to stand by her fam­ily, but found that her husband’s infi­delity with the younger woman was too much to bear. A cou­ple months later, she moved for­ward with end­ing their 10-year marriage.

Ross, who found out about the affair mere hours before pic­tures of her hus­band with Stew­art were pub­lished, is now open­ing up about the scan­dal and how it changed her life. “It was hor­ri­ble. I have no words to describe what we went through,” she said in an inter­view for Van­ity Fair. “But I think for me, some­thing always has to com­pletely die for there to be a rebirth. And, for me, I feel like I’m going through a rebirth.”

Ross report­edly left behind her life in the U.K. to sup­port her husband’s film­mak­ing dreams. “We were dri­ving around town and see­ing these bill­boards of [Snow White and the Hunts­man]. We were so excited, like, ‘Wow, how did we do that?’ I was so proud of him, what he’d done—what we’d done. We were a team, and the movie was made out of love.” The film cer­tainly was made out of love, just not his wife’s love.

Ross also admit­ted that she had a feel­ing some­thing was wrong with their mar­riage before the pho­tos of his affair sur­faced. “I knew that I wasn’t feel­ing 100 per­cent right, I found myself on a roller coaster,” said Ross. “I had times when I was very lonely, very dis­con­nected from Rupert.”

Since her mar­riage ended, Ross, now 35, has found a new older man to take care of her. She’s now dat­ing 60-year-old music pro­ducer Jimmy Iovine, who co-founded Inter­scope Records. While her ex-husband had a net worth of about $10 mil­lion, Ross’ new older man is esti­mated to be worth a whop­ping $700 million.

What do you think: Would you ever be able to stay with your older man after he was caught hav­ing an affair?

    wow, she was hop­ing he cheated, because she was also cheat­ing It was an easy way out for her, she prob­a­bly was cheat­ing first and he found out..Amazing how quickly she found a man after her hus­band and father of her chil­dren had an affair. That hap­pened to my fam­ily and we were dev­as­tated, couldn’t think of dating.

    Regard­less of what Rupert was doing, if she can be dat­ing a wealthy (why is that not empha­sized?) older man as soon as this hap­pened, it is likely NOT spon­ta­neous. Hell, if *I* had an older wealthy woman take care of me, I’d leave my wife too!

  • yeah

    Good for her, she is get­ting smart! Of course we know older man do it for thrill with younger woman so where Kris­tenS stands why she wants Rupert? So if not for secu­rity, Kris­ten cheats for love and lust?
