The Hollywood actor, 64, ans his wife of 11 years, Carey Lowell, 52, have split and intend to file for divorce, Page Six can exclusively report.
Gere and Lowell haven’t been spotted together since a Hamptons screening of his Wall Street thriller “Arbitrage” wich was released last year, and one source close to the celebrities told reporters that they’ve “been spending time apart for quite some time.”
Another source confirmed that the Hollywood actor and his wife walked different paths as the Pretty Woman star craves privacy and Lowell likes socializing with other bigwigs.
“They have a place in Bedford [NY], and he likes it because it’s quiet and he likes the solitude,” said the insider. “She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they’re good friends.”
Either way, the couple will have plenty of expensive property and estate to divide during the alleged divorce.
Their 12,000-square-foot, 12- bedroom North Haven home was put on the market a few months ago for a whopping $65 million. It features an “outdoor fireplace pavilion,” 300 feet of waterfront and a teahouse. Gere’s also an owner of the luxuriously restored Bedford Post Inn.
A source familiar with the matter revealed that it’s still unknown when exactly the two will file divorce papers.
Gere and Lowell have a son, Homer. They were together for seven years before they tied the knot.
Let us remind that Richard Gere was previously married to world-famous model Cindy Crawford, while Lowell’s been married twice before — to photographer John Stember and actor Griffin Dunne.
Last March, Gere’s beautiful ex-wife went on “Oprah’s Master Class” and explained their split, citing age difference (she was 22 when they married, he was 37) and the changes she underwent while still growing up.
“I think a lot of what happened with Richard and I was, I was still 22 and at 22 – as a young woman – I was kind of still figuring out who I was and what I wanted to be and he was already 37,” Crawford said.
“I just think your twenties for women is such a time when you’re starting to come into your own and feel your own power and connect to your inner strength and it’s hard to do that – it’s hard to change – in a relationship, because what one person might have signed up for, all of a sudden, you’re not that anymore,” she told Oprah.
Crawford wen on, adding: “I think I was more willing at 22 to be, like, ‘Okay, I’ll follow,’ but then you start going, ‘Well, I don’t want to just follow – I want to lead sometimes and I want to walk side by side sometimes.'”
After her divorce from the famous actor, the beauty tied the knot with restaurateur Rande Gerber in 1998.
The Hollywood star is scheduled to start production next month in Philadelphia on the indie movie “Franny,” in which he’ll play “a hedonistic philanthropist who ingratiates himself into the lives of a newlywed couple in order to re-create the life he once had.”
