Wife Liberty Ross stopped wearing her own ring last month after news broke of the British director's affair with Kristen Stewart on the set of their movie Snow White.
According to reports, the British pair are in talks to save their marriage with Liberty laying out a five-point plan for Rupert during a "marriage showdown" at the weekend.
Rupert was photographed at an LA shopping centre yesterday with daughter Skyla, seven, and son Tennyson, five. As the paparazzi snapped away from a distance, Rupert helped his kids pick out their back-to-school supplies then treated them to smoothies.
A source told Us Magazine recently that Liberty is "talking to and seeing Rupert now for the kids, but as far as the marriage she's still processing everything that happened".
