Kevin Costner divorce comes amid ‘Yellowstone’ success, blockbuster second act

Kevin Costner, the Academy Award-winning actor best known for his appearances in legendary films such as "Field of Dreams" and "Dances with Wolves,

 has recently found himself navigating personal issues at the height of his professional renaissance with the TV series "Yellowstone."

In an unexpected turn of events, Costner's 18-year marriage to his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, has ended, 

According to documents obtained by Fox News Digital, Baumgartner filed for divorce on May 1, 2023, citing irreconcilable differences, 

 with their separation dating back to April 11 of that year. A day later, Costner responded, indicating that the former couple had a prenuptial agreement.

The breakdown of their marriage has been tough for both Costner and Baumgartner

who have three children: Cayden, Hayes, and Grace. Despite the challenges, Costner's counsel asked privacy and respect during this difficult time.

As Costner deals with personal issues, fans eagerly await information on the status of "Yellowstone,"

the acclaimed country drama in which Costner plays patriarch John Dutton. Despite expectations of a summer launch

Paramount Network has been tight-lipped about Costner's role in subsequent episodes.
