Richard Gere to divorce due to 'lifestyle differences'

Actor Richard Gere and his wife, former Bond girl Carey Lowell, are planning to divorce after 11 years of marriage.

The couple, who have a 13-year-old son, Homer, have split because they have different lifestyles. The 64-year-old Pretty Woman star likes to lead a quiet life at his secluded home in Bedford, New York, while his wife (52) is more a fan of “socialising with other bigwigs”, a source reveals to the New York Post.

The couple have been living apart for some time, Caret staying at a separate home in North Haven, next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family.

The pair, who met in 1995, after Richard's divorce from supermodel Cindy Crawford, have not been photographed together since January. Richard was married to Cindy from 1991 to 1995, while Carey has been married three times. Her first husband was fashion photographer John Stember, to whom she was married from 1984 to 1988 and she was married to actor Griffin Dunne from 1989 to 1995.
