(NEW YORK) -- Are Richard Gere and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi dating?
According to the New York Post's Page Six, Gere, who is reportedly in the middle of a divorce from actress/model Carey Lowell after 11 years of marriage, has been seeing Lakshmi.
"They have been quietly spending some time together. It is all very new and recent, and happened while he has been filming in New York," a source told the paper.
Gere is producing and starring in Time Out of Mind in New York City, where he plays George, a homeless man trying to reconcile with his estranged daughter, Maggie, played by Jena Malone.
Gere and Lowell, who split last September, have a 14-year-old son, Homer. The actor was previously married to supermodel Cindy Crawford. Lakshmi has a 3-year-old daughter Krishna with Adam Dell, the brother of Dell Computer founder Michael Dell. She was also previously married to author Salman Rushdie.
The Post adds that reps for both Gere and Lakshmi had no comment.
