Following Rupert's brief affair with actress Kristen Stewart, 34-year-old Liberty has filed for divorce from her film director husband at Los Angeles Superior County Court.According to reports from TMZ, Liberty has asked for spousal support from Rupert, as well as joint custody of their children Sykla, 7 and five-year-old Tennyson.

The website also reported that in his response to the divorce petition, Rupert also seeks joint custody of Skyla and Tennyson, and wants himself and Liberty to share the legal fees. The couple's relationship has been under immense strain since news broke in July that Rupert had conducted a brief affair with Kristen, who was also in a relationship with Robert Pattinson at the time. The Twilight actress swiftly issued a heartfelt apology for the "momentary indiscretion" that occurred when she was working on Rupert's film Snow White And The Huntsman, which also starred his wife Liberty.Her statement was quickly followed by a similar apology from 42-year-old Rupert to Vogue model Liberty, saying he was "utterly distraught about the pain" he had caused his family.

"My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world" he added. "I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.' Kristen's statement read: "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected. This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry." Her apology helped the couple rekindle their romance and the two stepped out together at the world premiere of Twilight's final installment Breaking Dawn Part 2.
