British model Liberty Ross has opened up about her recent divorce from Rupert Sanders, insisting she has nothing but "love, respect and compassion" for the Hollywood director. The couple's marriage crumbled after Sanders was photographed kissing his Snow White and the Huntsman star Kristen Stewart in July, 2012, and Ross filed for divorce in January, 2013.
The divorce was finalised in May (14), with Ross taking possession of their former home in Los Angeles, a 15 per cent share of the profits from his movies, and joint custody of their two young children.
However, the brunette beauty is adamant the process of dissolving the marriage was not bitter.
She tells Britain's Style magazine, "I have nothing but love, respect and compassion for him... My parents taught me that life is an adventure and I embraced it."
Robert Pattinson has no hard feelings about his ex-girlfriend Kristen Stewart after she torpedoed their romance by locking lips with a married moviemaker in 2012, insisting infidelity is "normal" among young lovers. The British actor's relationship with his Twilight co-star was rocked two years ago, when Stewart was photographed kissing her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders in a Los Angeles car park.
The illicit romance prompted Pattinson and Stewart to briefly split, before parting ways for good last year (13), while it also destroyed Sanders' marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross. Their divorce was finalised last week (ends25Jul14).
Pattinson has now opened up about the infamous fling in a candid new interview with Britain's Esquire magazine, admitting the worst part of the scandal was having to discuss it in public.
Brushing off the cheating controversy, he says, "S**t happens, you know? It's just young people... it's normal! And honestly, who gives a s**t?
"The hardest part was talking about it afterwards. Because when you talk about other people, it affects them in ways you can't predict."
The actor's dramatic personal life has also turned him into a paparazzi target, but Pattinson insists he "doesn't understand" the media's obsession with him.
Earlier this year (14), the actor sold off the Los Angeles property he once shared with Stewart, and he admits he won't miss having snappers camped outside his home.
He explains, "(The paparazzi) photographed anyone who came up to the gate, anyone who rang the bell, and they followed any car that came in and out. I used to dress up my assistant as me, and get him to drive off with like five cars following him around for hours..."
And he jokes, "Whenever I see a bunch of paparazzi hanging out, I always think, 'Oh God, what have they found out!' Oh, THAT love child! I totally forgot!'"
Model/actress Liberty Ross and her director ex Rupert Sanders have finalised their divorce. Ross split from the filmmaker after he was caught kissing his Snow White and the Huntsman leading lady Kristen Stewart in a Los Angeles car park. The illicit romance also torpedoed Stewart's romance with Robert Pattinson.
According to the settlement agreement, obtained by TMZ.com, Ross gets the family home and two other London residences, $25,000 (GBP14,700)-a-month in spousal support for the next four years and $14,000 (GBP8,300)-a-month in child support for the couple's two children.
The model, who is now reportedly dating music mogul Jimmy Iovine, also gets 15 per cent of her ex-husband's future movie profits.
She will share joint custody of the kids with Sanders.
British model Liberty Ross has reached a divorce settlement with her husband Rupert Sanders two years after the director's "indiscretion" with actress Kristen Stewart became headline news. The former couple's marriage was rocked after it emerged Sanders had been photographed kissing his Snow White and the Huntsman star in July, 2012, and Ross filed for divorce in January, 2013.
Editors at TMZ.com report the stars have been negotiating a divorce settlement and an agreement was reached last week (ends25May14).
Legal documents, obtained by the website, were filed in court in California on 22 May (14) and they state Sanders handed over the former couple's Los Angeles home to Ross, while their other assets were divided up.
The former couple is parents to two young children.
Stars including Kate Moss, Courtney Love and Bobby Gillespie have all donned Pussy Riot's signature masks to film a protest video in support of the gay community in Russia. The project in support of Amnesty International features a collection of short films in which a celebrity participant is shown wearing a black balaclava, in the style of the Russian punk stars. At the end of the footage, they pull the mask from their face to reveal their identity.
Moss, Love and Gillespie all filmed clips, along with actor Colton Haynes, models Liberty Ross and Erin O'Connor, and members of the fashion industry including milliner Philip Treacy and designer Gareth Pugh, who helped put the project together with celebrity snapper Nick Knight.
A statement about the project reads, "Pugh and Amnesty International (have joined the) fight against the prejudice and violence directed towards the LGBTI (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex) community in Russia. Pugh and longtime collaborator Nick Knight... asked respected figures from across the fashion community... to demonstrate their opposition to homophobia by participating in striking 20-second short videos."
Russian officials have come under fire in recent months over the country's stance on gay rights and members of all-female rock collective Pussy Riot have been vocal opponents of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
British model Liberty Ross and music mogul Jimmy Iovine went all out for their Christmas party by enlisting Mary J. Blige to sing carols to revellers. Blige serenaded Ross and the Interscope co-founder, along with guests including Tom Hanks, Dr. Dre, Sean Comb, Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale at the bash in Los Angeles.
Mary J. Blige, Grace Jones and Boy George rubbed shoulders with the fashion crowd in London on Tuesday (19Nov13) at the launch of an exhibition in honour of tragic style journalist Isabella Blow. The stars descended on the U.K. capital's Somerset House, where Blow's outlandish outfits are on display.
The collection was purchased by socialite Daphne Guinness after the style icon's suicide in 2007, and heavily features pieces by her protegee Alexander McQueen, who also took his own life in 2010.
Guinness says, "The decision to put Isabella's wardrobe on display was a natural progression; it felt like what she would have wanted. I bought the collection because I couldn't bear for it to be dispersed; it was her life's work - her legacy. What better way of celebrating that legacy than allowing the world to view it?"
British royal Princess Beatrice, designer Jasper Conran, model Liberty Ross and Bond girl Gemma Arterton also attended the glamorous launch event. The exhibition runs until March (14).
Disgraced filmmaker Rupert Sanders has signed on to direct a new biopic about French military leader Napoleon Bonaparte. The Snow White and the Huntsman director has been hired by Warner Bros. executives to take charge of the project, titled Napoleon.
Sanders, who began his career as a commercials director, made his big screen debut with last year's (12) adaptation of the fairytale classic, which grossed more than $396 million worldwide.
He made headlines when he was caught romancing his leading lady Kristen Stewart. The affair ended his marriage to model/actress Liberty Ross.
Model and actress Liberty Ross reminded her cheating ex what he's missing when she stepped out on the red carpet at the MOCA Awards in Beverly Hills on Wednesday (06Nov13) wearing a see-through dress and no bra. The sexy star wowed photographers as she rocked a sheer black dress that left her breasts and nipples exposed and flaunted her body for the cameras.
Ross is now estranged from moviemaker husband Rupert Sanders, who was caught in a clinch with his Snow White & The Huntsman leading lady Kristen Stewart in a car park last year (12).
The mother-of-two recently opened up to Vanity Fair magazine about her husband's cheating scandal, revealing, "It was horrible. It was really the worst."
Ross filed for divorce from Sanders in January (13) and is currently dating music mogul Jimmy Iovine. She told Vanity Fair she feels she's currently experiencing a rebirth.
Model and actress Liberty Ross has opened up about her husband Rupert Sanders' 2012 fling with Kristen Stewart, revealing it was the worst ordeal to go through. Sanders was photographed kissing his Snow White & the Huntsman leading lady in a car park, prompting both him and the actress to come forward and own up about their secret romance.
The truth subsequently caused the break-up of his marriage and Stewart's relationship with Robert Pattinson.
Ross reveals she found out about the affair hours before the photographs were made public, telling Vanity Fair magazine, "It was horrible. It was really the worst. I have no words to describe what we went through. But I think, for me, something always has to completely die for there to be a rebirth. And I feel like I'm going through a rebirth."
She reveals she called on a friend to help her avoid the media storm following the publication of the kissing photos and her husband's confession, adding, "I was able to be there (friend's home) completely secluded. I tried to keep as far away from it as I could and to understand that this is my family and it's the most precious thing to me."
Ross admits Sanders wanted to reconcile, but she was not keen on the idea.
She explains, "I'm not a quitter. I've done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn't have any more to give. We were together for 16 years, and that, in itself, is really beautiful. And we've created two exceptional lives (children) together."
Ross filed for divorce in January (13) and has been dating record executive Jimmy Iovine.
Stewart and Pattinson reconciled after the cheating scandal, but split for good earlier this year (13).
