I’ve been wanting to use these Liberty Ross photos all week! I’m glad I finally have an excuse. Liberty was the InStyle And Warner Bros. Golden Globe After Party on Sunday night, and she oddly posed with Thandie Newton on the red carpet – are they friends? Weird. I think Liberty looks really good here, and it followed her appearance at the Alberta Ferretti party over the weekend too – so Liberty was going solo to two high-profile Golden Globes Weekend events? What does that mean?!!? Does it mean that Liberty and her Lip-Biter-humping husband Rupert Sanders are over, just like Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart are OVER?! OMG. Well, Page Six says Liberty is still exploring her (Dong) Options.
Liberty Ross seems to be distancing herself from her director husband, Rupert Sanders, following his cheating scandal with Kristen Stewart — and is spending time with music mogul Jimmy Iovine. Sources exclusively tell us the British-born model has become “close to Jimmy,” the head of Interscope-Geffen and co-owner of the phenomenally successful Beats by Dr. Dre franchise.
One source tells Page Six, “They were recently introduced by a mutual friend in Los Angeles. It’s early days, and there’s no indication anything has happened, but there is a lot of attraction between them.”
Iovine and Ross are believed to have shared a number of meetings in recent weeks, and were spotted hanging out together at the Golden Globes after-parties Sunday night.
Another source tells us, “She’s been through a lot with Rupert, but Liberty’s main concern has always been her children. She’ll do what is best for them.”
“Snow White and the Huntsman” director Sanders was caught in a steamy clinch with Stewart in LA last July. The scandal led to a brief split, followed by a reconciliation between Stewart and Robert Pattinson. Ross, who played Stewart’s mother in the movie, has largely remained silent about the affair.
Friends previously told us Ross and Sanders, who have a daughter, Skyla, 7, and a son, Tennyson, 5, have been having marriage counseling, and he has been asking for forgiveness.
In a recent video for fashion designer Alexander Wang, Liberty said: “We’re all on journeys, we’re all given lessons. Sometimes when things seem really bad, you have to be able to see the good and learn from it and move forward as graciously as possible. This year marked the end of some things and the beginning of something else. Beginnings and endings are always really exciting.”
Reps for Ross and Iovine, who split with his former model wife, Vicki Iovine, in 2009, didn’t get back to us last night.
For some reason, I had the idea that “Jimmy Iovine” was some old, Harvey-Weinstein-looking dude, but he’s not – I’ve included a photo of him below. He looks like… well, he looks like a middle-aged dude trying to look 33… wait, let me look it up. HOLY CRAP HE’S 59 YEARS OLD. Damn, he looks really good for his age. So… it could be WAY worse. And if he really is a “mogul” (he is), than it’s probably a good catch for Liberty. Chica has options. And it’s good that she’s reminding Rupert that she’s got options too.
