Kevin Costner’s tenant denies he ‘hooked up’ with Christine Baumgartner

Kevin Costner’s former tenant, Daniel Starr, has denied any romantic involvement with the actor’s estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner. In an interview with TMZ, Starr clarified that he was just a tenant who paid his rent and tried to be friendly with everyone. He further stated that he had a tenant-landlord relationship with them and nothing more. Starr wished the couple well and hoped that their divorce would end peacefully with minimal impact on their children.

Costner and Baumgartner had been married since 2004 and have three children together. However, their divorce has been contentious, with Baumgartner allegedly refusing to move out of their Santa Barbara home and requesting $248,000 a month in child support. Reports have also surfaced about her friendship with Starr, with an insider claiming that they hung out almost daily, which led to Costner confronting Starr after a fallout. The situation escalated, and Starr’s lease ended early after a legal dispute with Costner. Costner’s representative has not yet commented on the matter.

Kevin Costner’s former tenant Daniel Starr claims he “absolutely” did not “hook up” with the “Yellowstone” alum’s estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner.

When asked on Wednesday about the nature of his relationship with the duo, Starr told TMZ he was “just a guy who paid [his] rent” and tries “to be friendly to everybody.”

He noted, “I just had a tenant landlord relationship [with them], nothing else.

“There was nothing there,” the real estate developer continued. “They have kids and are going through a divorce.”

Starr went on to share his well-wishes for the exes amid their split.

“I just hope that it ends peacefully for them,” he told the outlet. “I hope his divorce resolves and his kids are minimally impacted.”

Costner, 68, and Baumgartner, 49, have been married since 2004, with the handbag designer filing for divorce from the actor in May.

Not only did Baumgartner make headlines this month for allegedly refusing to move out of their Santa Barbara, Calif., home and requesting $248,000 a month in child support, but a report surfaced Monday about her friendship with Starr.

“After he moved in, he became close friends with Chris and Kevin,” a source told The Sun. “They’d hang out together with their kids. But Kevin was always away filming, so Chris must have been lonely.”

The insider alleged that Baumgartner hung out “almost daily” with Starr, which led to Costner confronting the tech titan after a fallout.

The situation reportedly “escalated from there,” with Starr’s lease ending early after a legal dispute with the Oscar winner.

Costner’s rep has yet to reply to TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.
