"A few months later, sadly, they split. Rumours flew that Crawford was seeing her ex, club owner Rande Gerber, and that, while filming First Knight, Gere had been involved with 22-year-old British actress Laura Bailey (and then model Elizabeth Nottoli). The British tabloids went crazy, but Gere took it bravely. Appearing at a gay/lesbian fundraiser in London in October, 1994, he said, 'You've all heard some rumours about me over the years. I guess this is the time to do it. My name is Richard Gere... and I am a lesbian.'"
[On December 12th, 1991, Cindy Crawford told long-term boyfriend Richard Gere that if he did not marry her she would leave. That very day, they flew to Las Vegas and were married.]
