Kevin Costner ‘had strong suspicions’ about ex-wife’s rumoured romance with neighbour


There were suspicions on the part of Yellowstone actor Kevin Costner that his now ex-wife, Christine Baumgartner, had entered into a romantic relationship with their neighbor, Josh Connor, according to a report.

Costner and the handbag designer, who share three children, finalized their contentious divorce in September. Since then, Baumgartner has moved on with Costner’s former friend, while Costner is reportedly dating US singer Jewel Kilcher.


“Kevin had strong suspicions that something was going on between Christine and Josh,” a source told Us Weekly. “Their close [bond] was a real elephant in the room.”

The insider noted that the romantic aspect of Baumgartner and Connor’s relationship developed relatively recently, especially considering that Costner seems to have moved on as well. Page Six has reached out to Costner’s representatives for comment.

“Christine doesn’t think Kevin has anything to complain about,” the source added. “Josh has been Christine’s rock throughout the divorce ordeal. If Kevin has a problem with that, that’s on him.”

Rumors about Baumgartner and Connor’s romance began during the summer when they vacationed together in Hawaii amid her divorce proceedings. However, Baumgartner and her lawyer denied in court that she was dating Connor after Costner alleged that her new “boyfriend” had given her $20,000 in cash.

“They have been good friends for years,” an insider shared at the time.

While the specifics of Costner and Baumgartner’s settlement remained confidential, insiders revealed that she would receive a larger sum than initially outlined in their prenuptial agreement.

“Kevin and Christine Costner have come to an amicable and mutually agreed upon resolution of all issues pertaining to their divorce proceedings,” the exes shared in a joint statement to Page Six.

This development coincided with Costner celebrating his 69th birthday, commemorated by a nostalgic throwback photo taken many years ago. The image featured the McFarland, USA actor donning a cowboy hat, showcasing a cheerful grin.

“Celebrating another year of life today and taking a moment to honour this kid who had big dreams. It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come,” he captioned the Instagram post.

“Thank you all for the birthday wishes. It’s because of your support that I’ve been able to chase my dreams all these years.”
