Kristen Stewart’s mother, Jules Stewart, has filed for divorce from the her husband John Stewart after 27 years of marriage.
Jules filed for divorce on August 17 without the assistance of a lawyer, citing irreconcilable differences.
Kristen’s mother states she has been separated from John since June 15, 2010.
Sources are reporting Kristen may also be replaced by Ashley Greene in the promotional appearances of “The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn Part II”.
An inside source reveals, “The studio’s holding out to see if they get back together. But I don’t think anyone is banking on that happening. At this point, the press strategy would have been mapped out. It’s usually very organized, but at this time it’s undecided.”
The news of Kristen Stewart’s parent’s divorce doesn’t come as a surprise to those close to the star.
The insider said she is “not surprised with the news as [the two] were never seen together.”
The source feels John Stewart has been hit hard by the split because “he is a really nice and down to earth guy.”
But, the insider adds, “This has been a long time coming, and [John] is dealing with it smoothly and he wants to make sure that Kristen isn’t affected by it. That is what is important to him.”
