Kevin Costner claims his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, is refusing to move out of their shared house after filing for divorce. According to legal documents obtained by TMZ, Costner, known for his role in Yellowstone, stated that their prenuptial agreement requires Christine to vacate the house within 30 days of filing for divorce.
Costner, who is 68 years old, informed the court that he believes Christine is purposely staying in the house to pressure him into meeting her financial demands. The actor mentioned that he has already fulfilled his obligations under the prenuptial agreement by providing Christine with over $1.2 million (£900,000). Since their separation, he claims to have given her a total of approximately $1.45 million (£1.14 million).
In an effort to resolve the situation, Costner expressed his willingness to contribute $30,000 (£24,000) per month for a rental house. He also offered an additional $10,000 (£8,000) to cover Christine’s moving costs. Costner emphasized that he is the sole owner of all three of their properties, and according to the prenuptial agreement signed in 2004, Christine is required to vacate them upon filing for divorce.
Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner tied the knot in 2004, but their marital journey took a different turn when Christine filed for divorce on May 1st. The couple has three children together: Cayden Wyatt (16), Hayes Logan (14), and Grace Avery (13).
This is not Costner’s first marriage. Kevin Costner was previously married to Cindy Costner for a span of 16 years, from 1978 to 1994.
The legal dispute over the house continues as Kevin Costner seeks to enforce the terms of their prenuptial agreement and have Christine move out. The outcome of their divorce proceedings will determine the division of assets and financial settlements between the former couple.
It remains to be seen how the situation will unfold and whether Christine will comply with the court’s decision regarding the house. Until then, Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner’s divorce remains an ongoing legal matter.
