A kiss and embrace with Kristen Stewart cost a cheating director more than he had bargained for. His wife, the model Liberty Ross, got away with much of his property and money.
Liberty Ross was distraught when her husband, film director Rupert Sanders was caught with his pants down with the Twilight actress Kristen Stewart.
The two were philandering and when the news reached Liberty Ross she simply could not take the infidelity and took the aid of the court of law.
There the judge declared that Liberty Ross had been badly treated by her cheating hubby and hence she deserved a lot of compensation in the form of millions of pounds. Rupert was photographed by paparazzi in a car while he was passionately necking with Kristen Stewart.
When the divorce proceedings got underway it was found to everybody’s surprise and most of all Liberty Ross’s delight that she was awarded three fourth of the property and a 23,000 pounds monthly stipend to boot. Even part of the profits accruing from the poor director’s films would go to Liberty Ross.
The reason behind the divorce was irreconcilable differences. And the compensation plan was so extensive that it extended to the credit card points that Rupert Sanders scored.
He is left a virtual pauper after this divorce from Ross. And all for a stupid fling with Kristen Stewart. All that Sanders gets to keep are three things in total: his Malibu residence, an old Volkswagen van and a Nissan Pathfinder.
He has been reduced to penury thanks to the law and his dumb luck to have been caught so openly. Rupert is still trying to apologize and grovel before his by now ex-wife Liberty and their children.
But it is too late for things to go back to normal between the two. As for the children, the two will have mutual rights over them. Ross admits that it was a tough period when she saw that her relationship couldn’t go on any longer.
Yet she says that she stood her ground and was rewarded in the end. The laws in the West are often in favor of females in marital cases since the spirit of feminism and justice is still alive and well there.
