Gere heading for divorce?

Richard Gere and Carey Lowell

Richard Gere and his wife Carey Lowell are apparently headed for divorce.

The actor has been married to Carey for 11 years, but New York Post's Page Six claims the stars have now separated and are planning the legal details.

Apparently their split has been a long time coming.

"One source close to the couple said they've 'been spending time apart for quite some time,'" the website writes.

Richard and Carey haven't been spotted together since a screening of the actor's film Arbitrage last year.

It could be their very different lifestyles taking their toll; while Richard reportedly prefers the quiet, his wife likes to socialise with other movie stars.

"They have a place in Bedford [New York], and he likes it because it's quiet and he likes the solitude," an insider said.

"She likes being in North Haven in the limelight. They live next door to Jimmy Buffett and his family, and they're good friends."

It's allegedly unclear when exactly the pair, who have son Homer together, will file for divorce.

Should they really go through with it, it will be Richard's second divorce.

The 64-year-old actor was married to Cindy Crawford between 1991 and 1995.

Carey, 52, was previously married to Griffin Dunne and John Stember.
