It looks like former Hollywood heartthrob Richard Gere's divorce from model-turned-actress Carey Lowell will drag on longer than expected. Yes, you heard that right. The actor who has made lots of ladies all over the world swoon is in the thick of divorce proceedings. The settlement between the two parties, which has been kept under wraps, has been bogged down by assets & money matters.
Richard Gere and Carey Lowell's split is one of the costly celebrity divorce settlements. Carey Lowell reportedly wants a fair share of the marital assets. Her legal counsel had pointed out that she had put her career in the back burner to raise a son.

Lowell is remembered as a Bond girl in the flick "License to Kill" and for her role in "Law & Order." Gere, as many people all over the world know, is the star of a string of memorable and entertaining films, including "Pretty Woman," "Chicago," "Runaway Bride." "Shall We Dance" plus poignant ones like "Unfaithful" and "Nights in Rodanthe," to name some.

News that Richard Gere and wife of 12 years Carey Lowell are divorcing first broke out in September 2013. Lifestyle differences that led to growing apart made the couple opt for divorce. At 65, Richard has cultivated philanthropic interests and has shown a strong preference for a life of privacy.
Nonetheless, he continues to appear in films, like the upcoming "Oppenheimer Strategies."

Gere has been involved with ecological work while Lowell is the type who likes being in the social circuit. They have a teenage son named Homer James Jigme Gere, but custody matters have been agreed on. It's the financial settlement that has lagged for over a year now. Gere recently had a face-off in court with his estranged wife, but they were civil to each other and even had a friendly chat.

For now, there are other important things on the mind of the actor, who also convincingly plays a homeless man in the film "Time Out of Mind."
