Los Angeles: Actress Kristen Stewart`s mother Jules has filed for divorce from John Stewart, her husband of 27-years.

Jules filed a divorce petition against the brunette actress` father at Los Angeles County Superior Court on August 17, citing irreconcilable differences, reported TMZ online.

Jules, who is a writer-director filed the documents herself without using a lawyer and said that she has been estranged from John, a TV producer and stage manager, since June 15, 2010.

Kristen and Robert are not thought to have met face-to-face since the news of her infidelity broke, but she is said to be keen to get back with the 26-year-old actor.
