Six months after Rupert Sanders was caught having an affair with Kristen Stewart, his wife, Liberty Ross, has filed for divorce

In July, Kristen was publicly caught carrying on affair with Rupert, who directed her in Snow White and the Huntsman. The 41-year-old filmmaker then apologized to Liberty and his family for his actions. Kristen, 22, also issued a statement apologizing to her boyfriend Robert Pattinson, 26. The pair have since patched things up. 
 
 
Though Liberty, 34, was briefly spotted without her wedding ring in September, she and Rupert were reportedly working on their relationship to save their family. 
 
But now, according to TMZ, the model went ahead and sought legal action on Jan. 25. She's hired the famed Laura Wasser to represent her in her divorce, and has asked for joint custody of the pair's two kids; daughter Skyla, 5, and son Tennyson, 7, as well as spousal support and attorney's fees. 
 
 
Rupert has since reacted and is also requesting joint custody of their children, but is asking to split the legal costs with Liberty.
