Title: Kevin Costner Remains Tight-lipped About Ex-Wife’s New Relationship
In a recent interview, Hollywood actor Kevin Costner tactfully dodged questions about his ex-wife Christine Baumgartner’s newfound romance with their former neighbor, Josh Connor. When asked directly about Connor, Costner simply stated, “I don’t have a next-door neighbor.”
Reports have surfaced suggesting that Costner had strong suspicions regarding Baumgartner’s relationship with Connor. The couple recently separated after almost 19 years of marriage, with Baumgartner citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.
Baumgartner, who is also divorced and a mother of three, filed for divorce from Costner last year. During the proceedings, Costner admitted that he was unsure if Baumgartner had engaged in extramarital affairs. Baumgartner’s legal team even requested documentation from Costner to support his financial claims, including expenses related to potential extramarital relationships. Costner’s team dismissed these requests as harassment and denied having any knowledge of Baumgartner’s alleged affairs.
After a protracted and bitter legal battle, Costner and Baumgartner finally reached a divorce settlement in September 2023. Since then, Baumgartner has wasted no time in moving on, finding solace in the company of Josh Connor, whom she was first seen with on a trip to Hawaii in July of that year. Sources report that the couple has been together for a while and have already celebrated Christmas and taken vacations together.
Meanwhile, rumors swirled last month when Costner was linked to singer Jewel. However, insiders claim that their relationship is not currently serious. Sources close to the actor indicate that he is enjoying his newfound freedom after the contentious divorce and is relieved that it is finally over.
Throughout their marriage, Costner and Baumgartner welcomed three children into their lives: Cayden, Hayes, and Grace. The impact of their parents’ divorce on the children remains unknown.
Kevin Costner’s discreet response regarding his ex-wife’s new love interest has left fans eagerly speculating about the truth behind the rumors. Nevertheless, the actor remains private about this aspect of his personal life, focusing instead on his continued success in the entertainment industry.
