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).
