'You will never work with Kristen Stewart again': Liberty Ross BANS Rupert Sanders from directing the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman

In happier times: Liberty Ross has reportedly banned her husband Rupert Sanders from working on the sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman after news of his affair with Kristen Stewart broke
Her world was ripped apart when she discovered her husband had been cheating on her with Kristen Stewart.
And now Liberty Ross has banned Rupert Sanders from ever working with the 23-year-old actress again.
Although the father-of-two was originally lined up to direct the sequel to box office smash Snow White and the Huntsman – in which Kristen played the lead role – his model wife has told him in no uncertain terms that if he wants to save their marriage, he won't sign the contract.
A source told RadarOnline.com:
'They are trying to work things out after he was caught having an
affair, and that is one of the sticking points.
'She just doesn’t want
him to ever work with Kristen again.
'Rupert is obviously disappointed
because Snow White and the Huntsman was his directorial debut, and he
had hoped on building on that with a follow-up after some decent
'But he knows his actions were inexcusable, and he’s going to have to bite the bullet and listen to his wife on this one.'
While the 41-year-old filmmaker had a
verbal agreement with Universal to direct the sequel to Snow White and
the Huntsman, he is yet to sign a contract.
And with Kristen playing the movie's lead character, sources have claimed studio bosses will just 'find another director'.
Details of Kristen and Rupert's affair came to light when they were pictured cuddling and kissing late last month.
