Are you “over” the breathless coverage of Liberty Ross yet? I’m not. But I actually like her from what little I can make out of her personality. She seems surprisingly tough! Anyway, Hollywood Life has been running story after story about Liberty and Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart, all of it from anonymous sources. I mean… it’s highly likely that all of this is BS. But it’s still fun because Hollywood Life is so Twihard-heavy, so the coverage about Liberty’s divorce always comes back to “how is Kristen Stewart dealing with it?!?”
Liberty Ross filed for divorce from her philandering husband Rupert Sanders on Jan. 25, almost six months after it was revealed that he had cheated on her with his Snow White and the Huntsman leading lady, Kristen Stewart. While Liberty has maintained her distance from Kristen and spurned boyfriend Robert Pattinson, we’ve learned that she feels quite bad for Rob!
When HollywoodLife.com spoke exclusively with a source close to Liberty, we asked whether she had ever reached out to Rob or Kristen. Our insider said, “Absolutely not, why would she? That’s not something I’d expect her to do.”
The friend added, “Rupert brought them into this entire situation and unfortunately she and Robert, the poor little guy, were hurt the most. The entire situation is one she wants behind her and being away from everyone involved would be best for her.”
Meanwhile, a friend of Kristen’s tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “She hasn’t mentioned anything about Liberty and Rupert getting divorced. She never ever mentions his name, and her friends know not to bring up his name, especially out of respect for Rob. But I am sure she feels terrible.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, after the cheating scandal, Kristen made a vow to NEVER mention Rupert’s name in front of Rob ever again.
Another friend of Kristen’s revealed to us EXCLUSIVELY, “Kristen doesn’t talk to or talk about Rupert Sanders to anyone. Unless Rob brings up his name for some reason, Kristen would never, ever mention his name. She has moved on. She is really just focused on her number one priority right now, which is Rob.”
What’s interesting is that during the Golden Globes after-parties, there was some discussion about how Liberty and Sparkles might have passed by each other at one point, given that they might have been at the same after party at the same time. But no one knows for sure – and then less than two weeks later, Liberty files for divorce? *adjusts tin-foil Twihard hat*
Radar also has a story about Liberty’s state of mind pre-divorce-filing – you can read the whole thing here, but it’s mostly just a rehash of stuff we’ve already discussed. A source tells Radar, “For the sake of her own happiness, she had to finally go through with the divorce… No matter how hard she tried, she just couldn’t forgive Rupert for cheating on her with Kristen – especially since it was something that caused such public embarrassment. The images of Rupert and Kristen together making out were out there for everyone to see. Liberty just couldn’t get those pictures out of her head. She truly tried everything, even counseling, because she was desperate to make it work for the sake of Skyla and Tennyson. But after months and months of painful soul searching she decided it was in the best interests to end her misery and make a fresh start.”
You know what bugs me though? No one is going to ask Kristen about this! She really got the kid-glove treatment by the media in the wake of her affair with Rupert, and I don’t think her management team would ever put her in the position of actually doing an interview where she was asked specifically, “How does it feel to be Mini-Coopered by a married man and be one of the causes for the end of his marriage?”
