(Newser) – Richard Gere is splitting with his wife of 11 years, sources tell Page Six. Gere, 64, and Carey Lowell, 52, are reportedly separated and planning to divorce; they haven't been photographed together since last year, and Page Six last fall reported that Gere had been spotted flirting with another woman. One source says the couple drifted apart because Gere, a Buddhist, likes "quiet" and "solitude" while Lowell enjoys "being ... in the limelight." Another says they've "been spending time apart for quite some time."

They were together for seven years before marrying, and they have a son together (Homer is 13, according to the Huffington Post); sources aren't sure when they'll file for divorce. Their 12,000-square-foot North Haven home (that's in the Hamptons) was put on the market just two months ago for $65 million; they also have a home in Bedford, NY.
