The British model, 36, and music executive, 62, were first linked in February 2013 after Ross filed for divorce from her husband of 10 years, director Rupert Sanders.
In July 2012, Sanders, 44 was photographed hugging and kissing actress Kristen Stewart, then 24, whom he directed in Snow White and the Huntsman.
"It was horrible," Ross told Vanity Fair of learning of the cheating scandal. "It was really the worst, really the worst."
In the aftermath of the scandal, Ross's brother, Oscar-winning composer Atticus Ross, reached out to record executive and American Idol mentor Jimmy Iovine who provided support to Ross.
Sanders issued an apology days after the scandal broke and wanted to reconcile. But Ross said she knew the marriage was over and filed for divorce.
"I have no words to describe what we went through," she says. "But I think, for me, something always has to completely die for there to be a rebirth. And, for me, I feel like I'm going through a rebirth."
The divorce was finalized in May 2014.
