Kevin Costner, the renowned actor famous for movies like “Field Of Dreams” and “Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves,” is entangled in a divorce battle with his ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner. Legal documents have shed light on Costner’s substantial net worth, rumored to be around $400 million. His successful film career, including the Academy Award-winning “Dances with Wolves,” has undoubtedly contributed to his financial prosperity.
Aside from his film and TV earnings, Costner owns an impressive real estate portfolio valued at $100 million. This includes a ranch in Aspen, Colorado, which he reportedly rents out. Costner’s primary acting role in the hit show “Yellowstone” has been lucrative as well, with his income per episode increasing significantly over the years.
Furthermore, Costner has ventured into business investments, such as owning the now-closed Midnight Star casino and restaurant in Deadwood, South Dakota, for 26 years. However, with great wealth comes significant expenses. According to Baumgartner’s court filings, the family’s monthly overheads amount to a staggering $550,000, which includes expenses on a private jet, medical costs, credit card payments, gifts, spa services, and more.
In the ongoing legal battle, Baumgartner is seeking a monthly child support payment of $248,000, while Costner is proposing to pay $51,940. Currently, a temporary order has been issued, requiring Costner to pay $129,755 per month in child support. The couple shares three teenage children, and the dispute over child support continues to escalate. Costner argues that Baumgartner’s demands are excessive, while her legal team insists on providing the children with a lifestyle in line with Costner’s wealth.
The divorce case between Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner is yet to go to full trial, and both parties are fiercely contesting the child support arrangements. The outcome remains uncertain as they await the court’s decision later this year.
