Kevin Costner & Wife Christine Divorcing

After 18 years of marriage, Kevin Costner's wife, handbag designer Christine Baumgartner, has asked for a divorce from the "Yellowstone" star.
It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action. We ask that his, Christine's and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time.- Kevin Costner representative
Documents show that Christine filed paperwork on Monday to end the marriage, citing "irreconcilable differences." She is not asking for spousal support because they have a prenuptial agreement.
The couple has three children: 15-year-old Cayden Wyatt, 14-year-old Hayes Logan, and 12-year-old Grace Avery. Baumgartner, who is 49 years old, wants to share care of the children. Costner is said to have made his response on Tuesday, in which he also asked for joint custody. Baumgartner is not asking for spousal support, but Costner's answer, which was filed by divorce lawyer Laura Wasser, says there was a prenuptial agreement.
He is getting married for the second time. From 1978 until 1994, he was married to Cindy Costner. The ex-couple has three children: Annie, 39, Lily, 36, and Joe, 35. He is also the father of Liam, who is 27 years old. He had Liam with his ex-girlfriend Bridget Rooney. Even though Costner is getting divorced, there are still talks about him coming back to "Yellowstone." The actor, who is 68 years old, plays John Dutton on the 2018 show.
Before they broke up, Costner and Baumgartner celebrated the Dances With Wolves star's big Golden Globe win for his part in Yellowstone, which earned him the award for Best Actor in a Drama Series. Because of the flooding in Southern California, the couple couldn't go to the awards show in January. Instead, Baumgartner threw her husband a special party at home.
The actor from "Hidden Figures" said that Baumgartner threw a party at their home in Santa Barbara while they watched the event with their kids in the family room. In a February Instagram video, he said that when he was named the winner, his family "stood up and cheered" for him.
Christine and Kevin first met on a golf course when Kevin was practicing for the 1996 movie Tin Cup. He was still legally married to Cindy Silva, with whom he has three grown children from his first marriage. When they broke up in 1994, it was said that the star paid as much as $80 million in a settlement. This made their divorce one of the most expensive in history. Kevin and Christine got back together in 1998, and they've been together ever since.
Costner's role as John Dutton on the Western series has been praised by critics, but there have been reports that he might be leaving the show. In February, Paramount Network was thinking about ending the show after the fifth season, supposedly because Costner had scheduling problems. The network, on the other hand, denied the reports that Costner was leaving and said they hoped he would stay "for a long time to come."

Conclusion

Kevin Costner wife files for divorce. A representative for the "Yellowstone" star revealed that the couple, who have been married for 18 years, are breaking up. The breakup happened after The Post said that Costner and "Yellowstone" creator Taylor Sheridan had a fight, which led to the show's cancellation after five seasons. Costner won a Golden Globe for his part as John Dutton on "Yellowstone," which "reinvigorated" his career and won him a Golden Globe.
