SPOTLIGHT couple: Richard Gere, who separated from Carey Lowell last fall after 11 years, is dating celebrity chef Padma Lakshmi, says the N.Y. Post.
“They have been quietly spending some time together,” Don’t Usemyname is quoted as saying. “It is all very new and recent.”
Gere, you’ll recall, used to be married to Cindy Crawford. Lakshmi spent a long time with celebrity fugitive Salman Rushdie, then with various rich guys.
Gere is 64. Lakshmi is 43.
