He may have emerged with his wedding ring firmly on hand last week, but new reports suggest director Rupert Sanders has not seen his wife since his affair with star Kristen Stewart was sensationally exposed.

The Snow White and the Huntsman filmmaker is said to have ‘devastated’ Liberty Ross when photos of her philandering husband, locked in a series of intimate embraces with her co-star, surfaced late last month.


Ross, who played Kristen’s mother in the film, famously disabled her Twitter account as the scandal broke – writing one simple yet poignant word as news of her husband’s alleged infidelity made headlines: ‘Wow’.

People.com reports the couple’s seven-year union has been rocked ever since.


A source told the website the pair, who share two children, ‘seemed like a perfectly happy family,’ but clearly all was not as it seemed behind closed doors.


‘This was devastating for her,’ the source said.

‘She’s been focused just on her kids through this,’ another source told People. ‘It’s what she cares about the most.’


According to the source, Ross has not yet decided on whether or not to reconcile with her philandering husband. 


‘Now she’s really feeling strong and looks forward to resuming her life,’ the source said.

The full set of astonishing photographs which captured on July 17 Kristen, 22, locked in a series of steamy encounters with Sanders, 41, were revealed two weeks later, first published by UsWeekly.


The pair were each forced into a remorseful public apology, the shamed father-of-two saying he was ‘utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.’


He told People magazine: ‘My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.’


Sanders would step out with his wedding band wrapped firmly around his left ring finger days later, on August 1 – emerging for the first time since the scandal unravelled.


Kristen has meanwhile not been seen since the pictures emerged of her tryst with Sanders, but has moved out of the home she shared with her Twilight co-star and boyfriend Robert Pattinson, and is reportedly staying with friend, producer Giovanni Agnelli, at his Sunset Plaza abode.

Kristen acknowledged her relationship with Pattinson for the first time after the photos hit newstands, referring to her relationship with Sanders as a ‘momentary indiscretion’.

Pattinson, who remains in hiding, is said to be taking the news hard – and drowning his sorrows.


People.com reported this week that Robert has been ‘drinking and relying on friends to deal with the pain’.


After moving out of his shared L.A. home with Kristen, the actor is said to have sought refuge at his Water For Elephants co-star Reese Witherspoon’s Ojai, California ranch.


Liberty, who played Kristen’s on-screen mother in the Huntsman, meanwhile, is said to have banned Rupert from ever working with the young actress again.


It’s cast doubt on whether he will get to helm the rumoured sequel to Snow White – his feature film debut.

Earlier this month, Liberty gave a candid interview to the Mail On Sunday’s You magazine in which she revealed her marriage had suffered due to Rupert’s catapulting career.


She said: ‘I think that having been a model and so self-sufficient for those years, I was very ready to get married and have babies. I romanticised domesticity for a while… But moving (from London to L.A.) and starting a life all over again was a lot harder than I had anticipated.


‘I just didn’t think it would be as isolating and daunting as it turned out to be. I can honestly say that it took me five years to feel happy here.


‘I would never say out loud that I am raising my children alone, but a lot of the time it has felt like that.


‘I went from the glamour of working with Karl Lagerfeld and John Galliano to living on an isolated hilltop, with my husband gone most of the time.’


The couple have seven-year-old daughter, Skyla, and a five-year-old-son Tennyson.
