It’s been six months since Twilight star Kristen Stewart was photographed in a lip-lock with her married Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

And although everyone involved has said their apologies, the woman caught in the middle, Sanders’ wife Liberty Ross, has decided to move on from the scandal without her husband by filing for divorce in Los Angeles today, TMZ is reporting.

According to the website, the model, 34, is asking for joint custody of their five and seven year old children, Tennyson and Skyla, as well as spousal support.

Sanders, 41, also filed his response to her petition, requesting joint custody and no spousal support.

Ross, who had been mum for months, shared a revealing interview last October in designer Alexander Wang’s “Confessionals” video series for his Spring 2013 line where she opened up to about growing up in Los Angeles and the importance of family.

“I’m very happy with my life. I have good people. I have two amazing children,” Ross said, but did not mention her husband.

Regarding the drama she’s faced in the latest few months, Ross explained, “I believe we’re all on journeys, and we’re all given lessons at certain times in our life. 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.”

Ross acknowledged that 2012 was a roller-coaster year, but added that the turmoil gave her great strength to look to the future.

“I don’t like being trapped or feeling that I’m not able to move forward," she said. "This year is kind of the end of some things and the beginnings of something else. Change is really important in life but I’m still the same girl when I go home.”

Giving fans a glimmer of hope the couple could work things out, Ross and Sanders were spotted hugging after a counseling session in Beverly Hills just three months ago, although neither were seen wearing their wedding rings.

In happier news, in the wake of the photo bombshell that hit the news last summer, Stewart and her longtime love and co-star Robert Pattinson seem to have patched things up after being spotted over the holidays in London, but the beloved twosome have remained coy about their relationship status.

    like it or not, kristen is a participant to the ruined family.. she knew the man is married, she knew the wife, she knew the kids, she has a live in relationship.... if she is not a party to it then, what can you call her action... just a plain stupidity?

    Are you serious? If she k-stew knew that he had a family with two kids, that makes her responsible for the circumstances (read divorce) as well. And what a D-bag! After cheating on his wife and betraying his family he's requesting no spousal support! WTF?!

    I agree with Missy, too. I am sure he must of done this to others besides Kristen. That is what I have been saying all along.

    This is not Kristens fault. Could it be that the guy is just a Dbag? Sounds like a man having a mid-life crisis and wanted to see if he still had it. It is sad for the kids but don't blame Kristen for all their problems. Two to make and two to break it. They both need to own it!
