Kristen Stewart

There's no fairytale ending for Rupert Sanders and Liberty Ross.

The "Snow White and the Huntsman" actress has filed for divorce from her director husband following last summer's Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. While it seems that Stewart and her on-again boyfriend Robert Pattinson seem to have been able to put the highly publicized tryst behind them, it appears the same cannot be said for Sanders and his soon-to-be-ex-wife.

In her divorce filing, the actress is requesting custody of the couple's two children plus spousal support and payment of her attorney fees. For his part, Sanders wants to come up with a joint custody arrangement and wants to split the legal costs with his former spouse.

With the news that their marriage has caved to the latest cheating scandal to hit Hollywood, the couple joins an elite group of stars that called it quits after cheating allegations. Here are of the biggest scandals that rocked celebrity couples:

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger: They seemed like the perfect couple for more than twenty-five years of marriage. They weathered four children and wildly differing political viewpoints until they were rocked by the ultimate cheating scandal. It seems that the Governator somehow was able to keep the fact that he had a illegitimate child with a member of the household staff a secret for for than a decade. After Maria found out about his indiscretion, she showed him the door.

Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher: The cougar and her adorable cub seemed to be made in Hollywood heaven right up they were caught up in a cheating scandal in 2011. Rather celebrate his sixth wedding anniversary canoodling with his wife, the actor opted to spend the night with a hot young blonde at a San Diego Hotel. After photos of the night hit the weekly magazines, Moore decided to call it quits citing that certain "vows and values" were betrayed.

Elin Nordegren and Tiger Woods: They were the picture perfect couple of PGA golf until cheating rumors ended the marriage of the world's premier golfer and his beautiful wife. After winning just about every golf accolade in the books, the star athlete was turning into quite the ladies man behind the scenes with a bevy of beauties around the country. A late night blowup over Thanksgiving weekend in 2009 brought his secret double life into the spotlight and led a flurry of ladies to claim to be his various girlfriends much to his wife's dismay. The couple made a halfhearted attempt to work things out through a stint in rehab for sexual addiction, but ended up calling it quits in 2010. Woods is now reportedly dating skiing superstar Lindsey Vonn.
