Kevin Costner might have a new love interest after his tough divorce from Christine Baumgartner a few months back. Rumors say he’s dating singer Jewel. They were seen at a tennis event on Richard Branson’s Necker Island for the Inspiring Children Foundation.
The couple apparently flew to the Caribbean together and spent over a week there, according to TMZ. This comes after Costner’s messy divorce with Baumgartner, who filed for divorce in May, surprising Costner.
Costner’s representative released a statement, saying it’s sad circumstances led to the divorce and asked for privacy for Costner, Christine, and their kids. Costner and Baumgartner were married for eighteen years and have three kids.
After the divorce filing, there was a heated argument, resulting in Baumgartner leaving the family home due to a prenuptial agreement. Costner was ordered to pay $63,209 in child support each month.
Despite the difficult time, there seems to be hope. TMZ reports that Costner and singer Jewel are romantically involved. They traveled together to the Caribbean and were seen being flirty. Jewel mentioned Costner on social media, saying he guided their children at a tennis fundraiser.
Sources say Jewel is picky and wants a good man, and Kevin fits the bill.
