Kristen Stewart's Parents Are Getting Divorced

It seems the entire Stewart family has been unlucky in love lately. Weeks after daughter Kristen was dumped following her affair with Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders, her parents have filed the necessary paperwork to end their marriage.

The first blow was reportedly struck by mother Jules who submitted her petition on August 17. She cited irreconcilable differences but oddly, didn’t use a lawyer. That likely means she’s not expecting the actual divorce to be overly contentious, but I suppose you never know until both parties have to sit down and actually divide up the assets.

The whole thing seems like strange timing giving all that’s happened with Kristen and Rob Pattinson, but according to TMZ, Jules cited the separation date as two summers ago. Thus, it’s unlikely K-Stew is floored or even in the least bit surprised by this sad news.

The Stewart’s were married for twenty-seven years. She works as a writer and director, and he’s a producer and stage manager. Clearly, their love of show business rubbed off on their daughter. It’s sad the couple couldn’t make it work, but I suppose after being separated for two years, it’s probably better if they officially move on.

Pop Blend’s thoughts go out to the entire Stewart family during this difficult time.
