Kristen Stewart apologized last week for a "momentary indiscretion" that was a slap in the face to beau Robert Pattinson, but according to her paramour's brother-in-law, the actress might be stretching the definition of "momentary."
Far from the day-long dalliance caught on camera, Stewart's fling with director Rupert Sanders may have gone on for months, Leopold Ross told Britain's the People publication on Saturday. Leopold, younger brother to Sanders' wife, Liberty Ross, lives in L.A., where his sister and her husband had also relocated so he could give it a go in Hollywood.
"It was from the last half of filming and all through post-production, clear into last week," he told the People.
[Updated, 5:45 p.m. July 30: Or did Leopold Ross say that at all? A source reportedly close to Sanders told Gossip Cop on Monday afternoon that the quotes and information attributed to Leopold Ross actually came from "an imposter or were fabricated" and that the British musician, now L.A.-based, never spoke to the tabloid site. According to People magazine (which also cited a Sanders-camp source Monday afternoon as saying the info was untrue), the editors of the People were standing by their story.]
Liberty Ross, 33, and Sanders, 41, met when she was a teenager, the website said. "Snow White and the Huntsman" was Sanders' feature-film directing debut.
