'Snow White and the Huntsman' director Rupert Sanders and his wife Liberty Ross have initiated a divorce action.

If his names sounds familiar it is because he carried on an extra-marital fling with actress Kristen Stewart that went viral after she admitted to the affair and apologized publicly.

Liberty and Rupert, the parents of two children, tried to work it out with counseling but determined that the union was "irretrievably broken."

Liberty filed divorce papers Friday in L.A. County Superior Court.  She is seeking joint custody of the kids, spousal support, and attorney's fees.  Her legal eagle is high-profile attorney Laura Wasser.

Rupert filed his own papers and is seeking joint custody and shared legal fees.  His lawyer is Lance Spiegel.
