According to documents obtained by ETonline, Jules Stewart filed a petition for divorce herself (without a lawyer) on August 17 in Los Angeles, stating that she and her husband of 27 years, John Stewart, have been estranged since June 15, 2010.

The news comes a little more than a month after daughter Kristen was caught, and later admitted to, cheating on boyfriend Robert Pattinson with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.
