Kevin Costner and ex-wife Christine Baumgartner settle messy divorce as prenup enforced

KEVIN Costner’s bitter divorce to Christine Baumgartner has ended with the judge ruling a prenup must be enforced and a payout of more than $1 million if challenged.

The 68-year-old Prince of Thieves actor’s ex-wife, 49, had wanted $248k a month (£200,000).

But instead, the prenup said she should only receive $63k a month (£50,000).

A joint statement given to the Daily Mail said: “Kevin and Christine Costner have come to an amicable and mutually agreed upon resolution of all issues pertaining to their divorce proceedings.”

According to TMZ, if Christine challenges the judgment ‘she would have to repay Kevin more than $1 million and pay his attorney’s fees for the prenup fight.’

Much of her testimony during the hearing hinged on her being able to provide a lavish lifestyle for her three children Cayden 16, Hayes, 14 and Grace, 13.

She said her rented $40,000 (£32,000) a month property in Montecito was inadequate as their sons would have to share a bathroom and hit out at the lack of beach access to which her children are accustomed.

She also bemoaned the pool house guest accommodation – saying visitors would need to come into the main house to shower.

In May 2023, Baumgartner filed for divorce from the Yellowstone star after 18 years of marriage and three children together due to ‘irreconcilable differences.’
