Liberty Ross had a rough time a few years ago when her ex-husband, director Rupert Sanders, was caught by the paparazzi cheating on her. Fortunately, the British model has found happiness and is engaged!
Liberty Ross and Jimmy Iovine are engaged! Representatives for the couple confirmed their happy news to a U.S. entertainment website on Saturday (5th September). They have been dating since for more than two years.

This will be Ross’ second marriage. Ross was married to Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders for more than 12 years. Their marriage was rocked in 2012 when images of Sanders kissing the film’s star, Kristen Stewart, were published online. Sanders and Stewart both issued public apologies for their actions.
Ross and Stewart’s then-boyfriend Robert Pattinson both gave their unfaithful partners a second chance but it wasn’t meant to be for either couple. Ross filed for divorce from Sanders in January 2013 and their divorce was finalised last July.
Ross was devastated by her husband’s actions and, in a 2014 interview with the Evening Standard, described the events as “extreme”, “extraordinary” and “very traumatic”. However, in the same interview, Ross first publically indicated she was putting the past behind her and she confirmed she was dating Iovine.
“I wasn’t expecting to be with someone ever again; it all came out of the blue,” Ross revealed. “We started off very much as friends. I’d never even heard of him [Iovine] and had no idea what he did. I think he loved that.”
Us Weekly first reported the news of Ross and Iovine's engagement.
