Kevin Costner Spotted At Court Hearing To Address Ex-Christine’s Plea For Child Support

Kevin Costner attended a court hearing on Thursday to address his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner’s request for increased child support.

On Thursday, the Yellowstone star was papped along with his team of lawyers, including Laura Wasser, outside Santa Barbara court on the lunch break.

For his opening statement, John Rydell, Christine’s attorney, said they were reducing their child support request amount to $161,592 per month. Costner’s legal counsel has proposed $60,000 per month as per a forensic accountant’s latest assessment.

Christine is presently receiving $129,000 in monthly child support for their three children- sons Cayden, 16, and Hayes, 14, and a daughter Grace, 13. They filed for divorce in May. They were married for 18 years.

According to the court documents obtained by People on August 26, Christine was seeking $175,057 per month from Costner.

Christine’s court filings reveal that “forensics has determined that [Kevin’s] average cash flow available for support for the two-year period of 2021 and 2022 was $19,248,467 per year ($1,604,039 per month).”

The document continued, “Based on this cash flow, and a 50/50 parenting time share, the guideline child support, which is presumptively correct under California law, is $175,057 per month.” The amount could help their children stay true to the lifestyle they have grown accustomed to.

The documents stress that Christine wants to ensure that the couple’s “three minor children will continue to have the benefit of the lifestyle that has been made possible by Kevin’s substantial earnings and wealth.”

“It’s so much more than this — it’s an experience. We’ve created quite a community,” while repeatedly referring to the Santa Barbara compound she recently vacated as “ours.”

Sources also added, “Christine is trying to keep everything as normal as possible.”

When the split took place, a rep for the actor said in a statement, “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.”
