Richard Gere and Cindy Crawford were Hollywood’s “IT” couple in the 90’s. They married in Vegas, but it only lasted 3 years. The marriage was constantly plagued by breakup rumors, and the couple assured the public of their solidarity even 6 months before the split. Now, Gere is finally talking. He told The Daily Mail that the 17 year age gap was largely responsible for the split and that “he married her because [he] didn’t want to lose her.” He also said that he wasn’t sure he wanted children at the time. Gere is now remarried to Carey Lowell and has one son.
