Christine Baumgartner, Kevin Costner’s wife, has filed for divorce after 18 years of marriage.
The Yellowstone actor married the designer in 2004, and the pair have three children: Cayden, 15, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 12 years old.
It is with profound sorrow that circumstances beyond Mr. Costner’s control led to Mr. Costner taking part in a dissolution of marriage action, Costner’s reps stated. They ask that his, Christine’s, and their children’s privacy be respected while they handle this challenging time.
While the reason for the divorce remains unknown, Baumgartner is said to have cited ‘irreconcilable differences.’
They are also seeking shared custody of their kids, and Baumgartner is not seeking spousal support, which will be payable to the petitioner according to the provisions of the couple’s premarital agreement, according to a document by Costner’s lawyer.
The couple had a short divorce in 2003 when Baumgartner desired more kids and Costner was unsure about having more kids, but reunited before their marriage the following year.
The 68-year-old told in 2020 that the epidemic had strengthened their marriage.
Their relationship has really come into perspective about what they do for each other and how they cope with their family, the Man of Steel actor said, before adding that their home is like a river: one just has to get into the flow of it, and whatever one expected it to be, it may still be, but it will have to fit with what the day delivers.
This comes following rumors that the actor’s successful series may be cancelled after five seasons.
It comes amid reports that Costner had little time for filming due to his commitment to Horizon, a film he co-wrote and will direct.
This supposedly led to the Bodyguard actor seeking a week to shoot his sequences for the second half of Yellowstone’s fifth season in order to make time for his forthcoming movie, but this was purportedly denied.
And since then, Paramount has spoken out against these claims.
There is no news to report, stated a spokeswoman. Kevin Costner is a significant part of Yellowstone, and they hope he will be for a long time. Thanks to Taylor Sheridan’s brilliant mind, they are constantly working on franchise expansions of this amazing world he has built.
Bosses also discussed the prospect of another Yellowstone spin-off featuring Matthew McConaughey, describing the actor as a phenomenal talent with whom they’d love to partner.
