Kevin Costner steps out with son after winning child support battle

Kevin Costner was spotted out with one of his sons following his triumph in the child support battle against his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner. The “Yellowstone” star took his 14-year-old son, Hayes, out for breakfast at a local spot in Santa Barbara, Calif., on Saturday. The duo arrived in Costner’s exclusive BMW Z8 Alpina Roadster, valued at around $300,000, before enjoying a leisurely one-hour meal together. Costner, 68, opted for a relaxed look in a long-sleeved blue pullover paired with jeans and sneakers, while his teenage son sported a white graphic T-shirt with denim jeans and sneakers. Costner also shares two other children, Cayden, 15, and Grace, 13, with Baumgartner.

Following Friday’s court ruling, which ordered Costner to pay $63,209 per month in child support to Baumgartner, the actor was seen spending quality time with Hayes. Prior to this decision, Costner had been provisionally instructed to make monthly payments of $129,755 for their three children. Baumgartner had initially requested an increase to $175,057 per month, arguing that their children should maintain the same standard of living with both parents. However, the final amount was reduced to $161,592, after she initially asked for $248,000 per month in June.

During the outing, Costner drove his limited-edition BMW Z8 Alpina Roadster, while he and his son enjoyed an hour-long meal together. Both father and son opted for casual attire for the occasion.

After the court proceedings, Costner publicly addressed his split from Baumgartner for the first time since she filed for divorce in May, following their 18-year-long marriage. He described the situation as “horrible” and expressed his love for his estranged wife. The former couple had a prenuptial agreement in place, which detailed the amount of spousal support Baumgartner would receive and required her to move out of their shared family home after the split.

In addition to Hayes, Costner and Baumgartner are also parents to Cayden and Grace. The legal battle between the former couple has been contentious and lasted for several months. Costner’s $145 million Santa Barbara estate became a point of contention, with a judge ordering Baumgartner to vacate the property by the end of July. She eventually moved into a smaller home on the estate, while also renting a separate property for $35,000 per month.

On Friday, a judge ordered the Oscar winner to pay the former handbag designer $63,209 per month in child support, according to TMZ.

The ruling marked a win for Costner, who in July had been tentatively ordered to make monthly payments of $129,755 to Baumgartner, 49, for their three kids.

Prior to the decision, she had filed to increase that amount to $175,057 in monthly installments, arguing that their children should “enjoy the same lifestyle” with both parents. However, that figure was later reduced to $161,592.

She initially requested $248,000 a month back in June.

After Friday’s court proceedings, the “Bodyguard” star publicly addressed their split for the first time since his estranged wife filed for divorce in May after 18 years of marriage.

“This is a horrible place to be, but this is where we’re at,” Costner told “Access Hollywood.”

“It feels so bad. We’re talking about somebody I love on the other side. I just can’t.”

Additionally, when asked by the outlet whether he “still has love” for Baumgartner, he replied, “Of course.”

The A-lister’s remarks followed a contentious, months-long legal battle for the former couple, who tied the knot in September 2004.

In July, a judge ordered the former model to vacate Costner’s $145 million Santa Barbara compound by the end of the month after he claimed she was refusing to leave.

TheFantasyTimes later obtained photos of U-Haul trucks moving Baumgartner into a “smaller home” on the property used for staff.

She relocated to a $35,000 per month rental house in early August, per the Daily Mail.
