Reportedly, Richard Gere and Carey Lowell’s 11 year marriage is on the rocks! Both have decided to go separate ways and is all set to file for divorce with the aid of their respective divorce attorneys soon! The couple has been happily married for over 11 years and has a 13 year old son, Homer. Both are reportedly spending some time in separation before deciding on the future course of action. Richard and Carey

Good by Lowell

Lifestyle preferences have been considered responsible for the rift. While the 64 year old suave actor is known to prefer a quiet living without being much in the public eye, his 52 year old wife is very much a socialite in essence and spirit. She loves being photographed and enjoys spending time with bigwigs (this is also why Brad left Jennifer). This has in-fact caused conflict of interests between the couple and has now led to a probable divorce.

Skipped a Pre-Marriage Class

Before being married to Carey, Richard was married to Cindy Crawford, the then supermodel and this alliance lasted from 1991 to 1995. They divorced in 1995, which was when he also met Carey. The relationship, that was kept under wraps for a while was finally brought out in public and both Richard and Carry took the vows in 2002. Lowell was married twice before meeting Richard. She also had a daughter from her last marriage. The Law & Order star was very positive about the relationship. Commenting on the relationship, he had said, “She’s changed my life. And marriage does have meaning, if you do it from your heart. It is a milestone for us both.”

Richard should have determined something was wrong here after realizing how many times she has been married already. Of course how or why he divorced Crawford amazes so many people too.

Big Money

According to divorce lawyers, ever since the couple has been together, they have purchased a 12,000 square feet property that is worth around $65 million. Richard’s net-worth is supposed to be around $45 million.

Which one of the two calls on a divorce lawyer first, is yet to be seen. As of now, a separation seems inevitable although reconciliations could well be on the cards too.
