Kevin Costner’s Wife Files for Divorce as Yellowstone Appears to Come to an End

Kevin Costner may star in the most popular show on TV; but his wife has filed for divorce.

Christine Costner filed the papers on Monday, to end their 18-year marriage.

There’s no specific word about why she wants a divorce from the lead actor of Yellowstone, on Peacock.  Court papers cite “irreconcilable differences.”

The 68-year-old TV and movie superstar married (then) Christine Baumgartner in 2004.  He had been married to Cindy Silva, from 1978 to 1994.

A spokesperson for Costner said, “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.”  The rep continued, “We ask that his, Christine’s and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time.”

Costner is a father of seven.  There is rumor of an affair/pregnancy among the people who work on Yellowstone.

He’s well known for such cinematic successes as Robin Hood: Prince of ThievesDances With Wolves, and The Untouchables.


Kevin Costner is not expected to return to Yellowstone once Season 5 concludes.

Sources close to production told Entertainment Tonight that the star will not return, amid reports of alleged drama with co-creator Taylor Sheridan, over the actor’s filming commitments.

Additional sources told ET that there is also no date set for the rest of the cast to return to the set of the Paramount network series.
