It feels like just yesterday that Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner’s marriage appeared unshakeable, but now, after a bitter split and a public legal battle, they’ve both moved on.

Recent reports suggest that Costner may have found new love, but Baumgartner seems to be following suit.

Last May, Baumgartner blindsided Costner by filing for divorce, citing “irreconcilable differences” after 18 years of marriage.

A statement from Costner’s representative expressed his sadness over the situation, attributing the divorce to circumstances beyond his control.

Following Baumgartner’s filing, a contentious dispute erupted between her and Costner, resulting in her departure from the family residence as stipulated by their prenuptial agreement. Additionally, Costner was directed to pay $63,209 monthly in child support for their three children.

While 2023 may have been a year marked by challenges for both Kevin and Christine, there were whispers of potential romantic prospects amid the turmoil, according to various media reports.

According to TMZ, Costner and US singer Jewel sparked romance rumors late last year after reportedly flying to the Caribbean together. Witnesses described their interactions as flirtatious and characterized their time together as filled with mutual brightness.

Similarly, Costner’s ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner, has recently become the subject of speculation regarding her love life. The Daily Mail hinted at a possible new relationship between Baumgartner and financier Josh Connor, both residents of Santa Barbara.

Photographs published by the Daily Mail captured Baumgartner dropping off Connor at his home, suggesting a close connection between the two. This isn’t the first time they’ve been linked, as they were previously spotted together during a summer trip to Hawaii last July.

During her divorce proceedings, Baumgartner denied a romantic involvement with Connor, asserting that they slept in separate rooms during their vacation. However, the Mail reports that Baumgartner and Connor took another trip to Hawaii together in December.

Baumgartner’s attorney confirmed that Josh had lent her $20,000 last summer during her divorce from Costner. According to the Mail, Connor finalized his own divorce in January 2023 and shares three children with his ex-wife.
