It hasn’t been a good summer for Kristen Stewart.
First, her dalliance with “Snow White and the Huntsman” director Rupert Sanders caused her relationship with “Twilight” co-star Robert Pattinson to implode, and now TMZ.com is reporting that her parents are breaking up as well.
Jules Stewart filed a divorce petition on August 17th in L.A. County Superior Court to dissolve her 27-year marriage to the actress’s father John Stewart without the assistance of an attorney.
The papers noted that she and her husband have been estranged since June 15, 2010.
Both of KStew’s parents work in film production behind the scenes. Jules, a native of Australia, is a script supervisor and writer/director, while her soon-to-be-ex husband has worked as a television producer and stage manager.
There has been no public comment yet from the press-shy starlet, but a source close to the actress told US Weekly that she’s “close to a total meltdown.”
“She isn’t sleeping and she stays up all night crying,” the source said.
