Kevin Costner’s Suspicions Confirmed: Ex-Wife Christine Baumgartner Seen Dating Neighbor After Divorce

LOS ANGELES – Actor Kevin Costner reportedly suspected that his ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner, was involved romantically with their neighbor, Josh Connor. Costner and Baumgartner, who share three children, recently settled their divorce after a tumultuous battle. Since their separation, Baumgartner has moved on with Connor, who was once a close friend of Costner. Meanwhile, Costner has been linked to singer Jewel. A source revealed that Costner had strong suspicions about the relationship between Baumgartner and Connor, describing their close bond as a “real elephant in the room.” The insider also noted that the romance between Baumgartner and Connor had developed relatively recently. However, Baumgartner doesn’t think Costner has any reason to complain since Connor has been there for her during the divorce process. Costner’s representatives have not yet commented on the situation.

In addition to the rumors surrounding his ex-wife, Costner recently celebrated his 69th birthday by sharing a throwback photo on Instagram. The picture shows the actor wearing a cowboy hat with a smile on his face. Costner expressed gratitude for the support he’s received throughout his career and reflected on how far he’s come since his early days. Although the details of Costner and Baumgartner’s divorce settlement remain sealed, anonymous sources suggest that she will receive more money than initially stated in their prenuptial agreement.

It’s worth noting that Baumgartner and Connor sparked rumors of a romance when they were spotted together during a vacation in Hawaii. However, during court proceedings, Baumgartner and her attorney denied that she was dating Connor after Costner accused her of receiving $20,000 in cash from her new “boyfriend.” Despite the denial, sources close to the situation confirmed that Baumgartner and Connor have been good friends for years.

Overall, Costner and Baumgartner have reached an amicable and mutually agreed-upon resolution in their divorce proceedings. The couple released a joint statement expressing their satisfaction with the settlement. Costner continues to navigate his personal life as rumors swirl about his ex-wife’s new relationship.
