Kevin Costner, Jewel dating after Christine Baumgartner split, report says

Kevin Costner’s reportedly found a bright and shiny romance with Jewel on the heels of his acrimonious divorce from wife of 18 years, Christine Baumgartner.

The Oscar winner, 67, and the “You Were Meant for Me” singer, 49, are in a “rather new” relationship, sources with direct knowledge told TMZ.

The “Field of Dreams” star and musician traveled together to and from Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands to participate in a tennis fundraiser for Jewel’s Inspiring Children Foundation, per the outlet.

“There was definitely something going on. They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up,” one insider said of the pair.

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

Costner married second wife Baumgartner, 49, in September 2004 and together share three teenage children. She filed for divorce in early May, just before news broke that Costner would be departing the Paramount+ hit “Yellowstone.”

They finally settled the much-publicized divorce in September. Though the designer sought $248,000 a month in child support, a judge ultimately decided Costner would only have to pay $63,000 each month, TMZ reported at the time.

Though Baumgartner was reportedly denied her $850,000 fee request, the divorce was settled quicker thanks in part to Baumgartner having received more than the pair’s prenuptial agreement laid out, insiders told the outlet.
