Richard Gere can’t wait to finalize his divorce so he can marry a 33-year-old


True story: Richard Gere still hasn’t finalized his divorce from Carey Lowell. Gere and Lowell separated back in 2013, and as of December 2015, they were still bickering over money. The money seems to be the sticking point, and until they agree to a financial arrangement, the divorce is still pending. But Richard Gere has already moved on with a new young lady! Gere is currently dating Alejandra Silva, a 33-year-old Spanish “socialite” (sure). Gere is 66 years old. Literally twice Silva’s age. And he wants Silva to be his new wife, so he’s looking to speed up his still-pending divorce.

Richard Gere‘s $250 million divorce is exploding as he quits Hollywood to marry his much younger girlfriend! That’s the bombshell claim in a report from this week’s issue of The National ENQUIRER. Gere, 66, wants his split from estranged wife Carey Lowell, 55, finalized ASAP so he can get hitched to beautiful socialite Alejandra Silva, sources told The ENQUIRER.

“Richard wants to finally finish his divorce from Carey, which has dragged on for 33 months now, so that he can marry Alejandra and have a baby with her!” an insider said. According to the source, it was an emotional encounter with the Pope, during an event at the Vatican on May 29, 2016, that pushed Gere into action.

“Even though Richard’s a devout Buddhist, he was overwhelmed by meeting the Pope,” a source close to the Pretty Woman star told the magazine. “He realized that he needed to move on with his life.”

And that means moving forward with 33-year-old Spanish beauty Silva!

“They’ve been dating for quite some time, and he’s very much in love with her!” the source confirmed. “If he’d had his way, they would have been married by now!”

Meanwhile, Gere and Lowell landed in a Manhattan court in late April to continue hashing out their divorce settlement. The American Gigolo actor and his Law & Order star wife separated in 2013, after 11 years of marriage. Though they quickly worked out custody of Homer, they’re still battling it out over money!

“Richard’s divorce from Carey has dragged on and on,” complained the insider. “He’s worn out and desperately wants to move on with Alejandra. He’s even slashed the price on his Hamptons property in half!”

The Enquirer also says that Gere wants to marry Silva in Tibet an get a personal blessing from his friend the Dalai Lama. Which… sure. That sounds about as realistic as Silva being consistently described as a “socialite.” While I don’t doubt that Gere is eager to settle his divorce, maybe he should just give in to whatever Carey wants? They were together for a long time and being married to her was good for his career. Maybe she actually deserves whatever she’s asking for? As for Alejandra… will she stick around when Gere’s assets are slashed in half?

    There is something about her that reminds me of Cindy Crawford – what is it?

    • almondmilk says:

      I don’t see that at all, however, I am old enough to recall when he was deemed too old for Cindy Crawford…. And too old for Winona Ryder… Now he’s dating women a decade or two younger than them.

      He’s following in Alec Baldwin’s footsteps and having a bunch of kids in his dotage that he may not see graduate highschool.

    • Melody says:

      Reminds me of Chris Hemsworth’s wife

    • Grant says:

      To me, she looks like Rachel Zoe or Elsa Pataky.

  2. RedOnTheHead says:

    No fool like an old fool

  3. Bridget says:

    Really, if you should be inspired to do anything after meeting the Pope, it’s get a divorce.

  4. JenniferJustice says:

    Pfffft…she is not beautiful, just much younger. Irksome when older men say their newbies are gorgeous, beautiful, etc. when in actuality they are merely attractive but so much younger, that is the attraction.

    And what’s with the suspicious comment about her being questioning the described that she is a “socialite?” Is there something more about this lady that’s not being told?

    • Bonster says:

      No, she is actually a socialite, born to a successful family, well-educated, and connected with charities. She may not be beautiful, but she is very attractive, and she enjoys a privileged position in life. What she sees in old codger Gere is a mystery. She has a page in Wikipedia if you want to know a bit more about her.

  5. LM says:

    Strange, I never would have guessed she’s in her 30’s. She looks older to me. IMO, I don’t think age is so relative, it really is about how they get along. I’ve dated younger men, men my age, and a few older men. I’ve had a long term marriage end in divorce and I have a much different perspective on the whole dating thing now. I just want nice, thoughtful, and smart. I don’t care what age package that comes in.
    As for Richard, Carrie wasn’t the best mom to her first daughter, she wasn’t a part of her daughter’s youth, walking away and primarily letting her dad raise her so I don’t have a great deal of sympathy for her. She also cheated on Richard and I think you can be kind and end things before it gets to that level.

  6. Joanie says:

    I think his current soon to be ex wife is much more attractive. The girlfriend being half his age makes him appear so much older.

    • Kitten says:

      Yes Carey Lowell is STUNNING. No offense to his new gf but she’s forgettable by comparison.

      But she’s dating Tom Freston, who is no Richard Gere either.

      • StumpyCorgi says:

        I met Richard Gere and Carey Lowell several years ago in NYC. He was a drunken mess, and really short BTW. She was so cool, smart, and easy to talk to, not to mention gorgeous! She was way out of his league!

    • shannon says:

      I’m with you. I think she’s a step down from Carey. Carey was a BOND girl for crying out loud.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      Agreed! I always loved Carey on Law and Order. She was a convincing beautiful smart woman character.

      • Ally8 says:

        OMG, she was amazing on L&O. That character was so subtle, complex and powerful. (I had no feeling for Taylor Swift until she mentioned on Graham Norton geeking out about meeting Carey Lowell because of that role. I would, too!)

  7. A Fan says:

    Well, he isn’t afraid of commitment.


  8. KHLBHL says:

    Why are there so many exclamation points? Are their “insiders” and “sources” yelling or what? I must have never read National Enquirer before.

  9. WTF says:

    This is so cliche it’s sad

  10. Lama Bean says:

    I think there are sprinkles of truth in this story. I doubt he’s dying to have babies with her, and the way Hollywood is about marriage and babies, waiting to get divorced to get pregnant is not a requirement. A lot about this seems made up, but I believe the underlying premise.

    Side note: I have always thought Richard gere was a silver fox so I don’t totally hate on her for tapping that.

  11. Spike says:

    As a Buddhist I say with all sincerity, in the words of the late great Whitney Houstin – hell to the no.

  12. Emily says:

    Richard Gere is sexy. Young, old. It doesn’t matter. He’s practically vibrating.

    • drea says:

      “practically vibrating”? I think that vibration is probably emulating from deep within his colon. and My Foot is that woman 33, I’m the same age and tbh she looks like she could’ve been my babysitter.

  13. holly hobby says:

    I dunno, he was famously anti marriage for years until Cindy Crawford laid out the ultimatum and he capitulated. Yes he married Carey and it was a surprise it lasted as long as it did. However, I don’t know why he’s all of a sudden in a rush to marry this new love.
