Liberty Ross Finally Tells All About Her Husband’s Affair
The Liberty Ross, Rupert Sanders, and Kristen Stewart love triangle already seems like ages ago — and yet, as soon as we heard that Ross was starring in her own Vanity Fair spread with a tell-all interview, we couldn’t wait to sink our teeth into the revelations.
First off, we learned that Ross learned of her husbands affair with Stewart just 20 hours before the paparazzi images hit the web.
Ross’s brother Atticus told Vanity Fair:
“It was fucking crazy. To some extent at that moment, Rupert was in denial, and Liberty didn’t know what was going to happen…. I’m texting people because I know this is going to be huge. I knew this had all the makings of what our world has become. This is going to be fucking big, and Liberty needs to be protected. It was about it not destroying [Liberty]. I don’t think people understand what being in the eye of that storm is like.”
As soon as Atticus received news of the affair, he arranged for his sister and her two children to stay at a friend’s. He also called Interscope Records co-founder Jimmy Iovine (Ross’ now-rumored boyfriend), who provided Ross with a PR woman to handle the media circus (Ooh, a real life Olivia Pope!).
Additionally, even though Sanders wanted to keep their marriage alive, Ross knew she couldn’t let it go on any longer. She explained:
“I’m not a quitter. I’ve done everything I could to be the perfect wife and mother and really support my husband. But I just didn’t have any more to give, you know?”
She also admits that even prior to the affair, there were clues that their relationship was on the brink of reaching its shelf life:
“I knew that I wasn’t feeling 100 percent right. I found myself on a roller coaster, like, I’m going to keep things moving, keep things going. I’m going to keep up this amazing [façade], everyone looking at me and Rupert, thinking, Oh, wow, you guys have it all…. Really, I had times when I felt very lonely, very disconnected from Rupert. We’d lost our real connection.”
Despite all the pain, Ross still looks for a silver lining. “We were together for 16 years, and that in itself is really beautiful,” she said. “And we’ve created two exceptional lives together.”
We’re certain Ross will be just fine, because after getting a preview of the spread, we’re certain that Sanders is doomed to spend the rest of his life kicking himself.
