Less than a week after shocking photos of Kristen Stewart kissing her “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders were published in Us Weekly, the married man has stepped out in public for the first time. On Monday, Sanders, 41, was spotted walking in Los Angeles by himself – but still wearing his wedding band. Over the weekend, his wife, model-actress Liberty Ross, reportedly attended a family party with their two children: daughter Skyla, 7, and son Tennyson, 5. Ross, casually clad in a white long-sleeved shirt, was photographed hugging an unidentified man and laughing as she talked to a woman. (X17 Online has since taken down the photos from its site.) However, Sanders was not seen in any of the pictures. It’s unclear if he and Ross are trying to work things out.
Over the weekend, British newspaper The People published an interview it claimed was with Ross’ brother Leopold, who disclosed that the affair between Sanders and Stewart, 22, was not a one-time thing as they claim. “It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week,” said Leopold, a rock guitarist based in Los Angeles. “Snow White,” which is in talks to get a sequel, was shot from September 19 to December 10 of last year. “Doubt it was worth it, but it’s life,” added Leopold. “It might actually make things better in the long run. She wasn’t that happy for a while, but our family is close. She’ll be all right.”
Sanders and Ross may not be the only ones who split as a result of the affair. On Friday, Robert Pattinson reportedly moved out of the Los Feliz, California, home he had been sharing with Stewart. But on Monday, People clarified that the “Twilight” actor instead asked her to move out (a U-Haul was indeed pictured parked on their driveway over the weekend). “The entire thing has been such a blow to Rob,” a source told the magazine. “Talk about having his heart ripped out. Rob just isn't going to be able to get past the cheating – one time or not."
Although a puffy-eyed Stewart did emerge in Los Angeles on Wednesday, a day after news of the scandal broke, Pattinson has remained out of sight.
