Rupert Sanders probably regrets his fling with Kristen Stewart because it’s costing him a fortune in his divorce from Liberty Ross. Their divorce has now been finalized and according to The Stir on July 27, ,Rupert’s divorce from Liberty Ross has left him with a beach house in Malibu and a 1970 VW van. Meanwhile Liberty, who gets practically everything else has made out like a champ.
According to People magazine and other news outlets on July 26, Liberty’s divorce settlement from Rupert Sanders consists of the following: She will get three of the four family homes, the house in Los Angeles, as well as an apartment and a house in London. Liberty, who was represented by celebrity divorce attorney Laura Wasser will also get $25,000 a month in spousal support ($300,000 a year) until June 30, 2018 or until she remarries and half of all their bank accounts.
This only seems fair since Liberty gave up a successful modeling career in London and relocated to Hollywood to support her husband’s directing career. In addition, Liberty will get 15% of any profits from Rupert’s movies, and half of their bank accounts. Rupert and Liberty will share joint legal custody of their two children, daughter Skyla, 9, and son Tennyson, 8. Rupert has also agreed to pay 75 % of the children’s school and medical fees. Liberty will also get $14,000 per month in child support.
Rupert and Liberty Ross were married for 10 years. In the summer of 2012, Liberty was utterly humiliated when pictures surfaced of Rupert Sanders kissing Kristen Stewart. Rupert was directing Snow White and the Huntsman at the time, in which Kristen was a star. Liberty filed for divorce in January 2013. Liberty Ross played the role of Kristen’s mother in Snow White and she will collect one-half of Rupert’s residuals from that film.
In addition to costing Rupert Sanders his marriage and mega-bucks, the Kristen Stewart-Rupert Sanders infidelity scandal also cost Kristen Stewart her relationship with Robert Pattinson, her Twilight co-star and her boyfriend of four years. Although Kristen issued a public apology, referring to her affair with Rupert Sanders as a “momentary indiscretion” her relationship with Rob was never the same. Despite countless rumors of reconciliation in the months that followed, Rob and Kristen were never able to get their relationship back on track, must to the dismay of their millions of fans.
The lesson here is that infidelity doesn’t pay, unless like Liberty Ross, you happen to be the betrayed wife. No doubt Kristen Stewart and Rupert Sanders dearly regret their ill-advised decision to become romantically involved.
