Richard Gere and his wife Carey Lowell have separated, and are headed for divorce.
The New York Post reports the couple, who have been married for 11 years and have a 13-year-old son together, have been “spending time apart for quite some time.”
Rumor has it the reason for the divorce is 64-year-old Gere likes a quiet life, while his former Bond girl wife, 52, still likes “socialising with other bigwigs.” A source told the paper: “They have a place in Bedford [NY], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude. She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.”
The couple got married in November, 2002, after dating for seven years. The last time they were photographed together was at the Golden Globes in January.
That’s really too bad. Together for 18 years, and they split? I think it’s so sad when you have that many years behind you and you STILL can’t make it work.
