Kristen Stewart's parents divorcing

Kristen Stewart's parents, who have been married for 27 years, are getting divorced.

Twilight star Kristen's mum, Jules, filed a divorce petition against her dad John Stewart. The couple married in 1985.

Jules filed the divorce without the help of a lawyer just one month after news of Kristen Stewart's affair with Snow White director Rupert Sanders despite dating her Twilight co-star Robert Pattinson.

Pattinson is now looking to sell the couple's LA home, while Kristen has reportedly been spending her time keeping her head low and reading self-help books.

'Kristen is trying to find some inner peace within herself,' an insider reportedly revealed. 'And she is reading a lot. She has always been interested in philosophy and spirituality and she has been reading a lot of different books.

'Strangely enough, the one author that has really been resonating with her is Gandhi, who she decided to find out more about after watching Eat, Pray Love.'
