Richard Gere and Carey Lowell Finally Finalize Their Divorce
Hollywood actor Richard Gere recently finalized his divorce from Carey Lowell, slightly more than three years after the married couple initially separated.
In 2013, Gere and Lowell legally separated. Gere, perhaps still best known as one of the stars of Pretty Woman, married Lowell in 2002. Gere was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford, with Gere and Crawford divorcing in 1995.
It was Lowell who filed for divorce in 2013, citing “lifestyles differences” as a major reason for the divorce. Media reports indicated that Lowell preferred to go out and socialize while Gere wanted to maintain his privacy when not working as an actor.
Although the precise details of the couple’s divorce settlement have not been disclosed to the public, it is being reported that Gere and Lowell reached an amicable resolution to potentially thorny issues like child custody and child support. Gere and Lowell have one child together: their 16-year-old son Homer.
The long period of time between the couple’s legal separation and the finalization of their divorce is not uncommon for divorcing couples, particularly when child custody and high net worths are involved. The truth is that the divorce process is often contentious and exhausting, which is why it is vitally important that anyone even thinking about getting divorced in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or anywhere else speak with a qualified family law attorney before making any final decisions.
