Kevin Costner and his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, have been involved in a divorce drama. Recently, a judge ordered Christine to leave Kevin’s mansion by the end of July. Kevin, who is 68 years old, claimed that Christine was refusing to move out of their home. On July 5, the judge ruled in Kevin’s favor and enforced a clause in their prenuptial agreement. According to the agreement, Christine had 30 days to vacate the property after filing for divorce. She filed for divorce on May 1, and now she has until the end of July to find a new place to live.
Christine’s legal team requested an extension, asking for more time until August to move out, citing insufficient time and funds. However, the judge denied the request and maintained the original deadline. The validity of their prenuptial agreement will be further examined in a hearing scheduled for November. Christine is expected to argue that the prenup is invalid.
If the judge upholds the prenup’s validity, Christine will be required to return the $1.5 million that Kevin gave her, as well as cover his legal fees related to the prenuptial agreement. Last month, it was reported that Kevin had already given Christine $1.45 million to help her find a new home. He was also open to providing additional financial support for child support and moving costs.
Kevin and Christine tied the knot in 2004 and have three kids. However, they have chosen to part ways because they cannot resolve their differences. In addition to their shared children, Kevin has four other children from previous relationships. He has been described as stunned by Christine’s decision to file for divorce, as there were no issues of cheating involved.
As the legal proceedings continue, Kevin and Christine will navigate the complexities of their divorce and the division of assets. It remains to be seen how their case will unfold and what the final outcome will be.
