Kevin Costner’s Heartwarming Love Story: Finding Love Again at 67

Months after enduring a painful separation from his longtime wife, Christine Baumgartner, it seems that Kevin Costner may have found love once again.

Reports indicate that the Yellowstone star is now in a relationship with singer Jewel. The two were recently photographed together on Richard Branson’s Necker Island at a tennis fundraiser for the Inspiring Children Foundation.

According to TMZ, the pair flew to the Caribbean together and spent over a week in each other’s company. This development comes shortly after the tumultuous period Kevin Costner went through following his post-relationship court battle with Christine Baumgartner.

Reports suggest that Costner was taken by surprise when his wife initiated divorce proceedings in May of this year. The situation then continued to escalate from there.

In early May, Christine filed divorce papers, citing “irreconcilable differences,” ending their 18-year marriage.

A representative for Costner released a statement, expressing, “It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action. We ask that his, Christine’s and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time.”

Costner and Baumgartner tied the knot in 2004 and share three children together: sons Cayden, 15, and Hayes, 14, and daughter Grace, 12.

Following Baumgartner’s filing, a bitter feud unfolded between her and Costner. The dispute included Baumgartner being compelled to leave the family home, as per a prenuptial agreement, and Costner being ordered to pay $63,209 per month in child support.

Though the road has undoubtedly been a dark one for Costner, filled with heartbreak, uncertainty, and a lot of stress he could probably have done without, it would appear there is light at the end of the tunnel.

As per TMZ, Costner has embarked upon a romance with US singer Jewel. As mentioned above, the pair flew to the Caribbean together, with one source stating: “There was definitely something going on. They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up.”

Another source added: “You could tell they were trying to be discreet, but anybody who saw them could tell something was going on.”

Not only that, but Jewel mentioned Costner on social media. Referring to the tennis fundraiser held on Necker Island, located in the British Virgin Islands, she said: “It’s an incredible time, and one I use to relax, rest and play w my son! @kevincostnermodernwest was kind enough to mentor our kids this year.”

TMZ also reports that Costner and Jewel flew back together. A source told them that Jewel is “picky,” adding: “She wants a good man, and Kevin fits the bill.”
