Kevin Costner is “very happy yesterday with a prejudgment in his favor,” about a Wednesday ruling that his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, must vacate the family home before July 31st, even though he originally requested for her to move out by the 13th.
Baumgartner previously stated that she would be willing to move out by the end of August, if specific child support requests were complied with. Costner claims that their prenuptial agreement only entitles her to $1.4 million, which he says he has already paid.
All of this comes after the scathing revelation that Costner had no intention of divorcing Baumgartner. He stated in a statement declaring their divorce, that he was blind-sided by the filing and had hoped for reconciliation.
“Please be advised and advise your client that the separation she initiated and has indicated must move to a divorce is not something Mr. Costner desires,” Costner’s team wrote in a letter to Baumgartner’s. “For your client to now be in breach of the (PMA) upon which Mr. Costner relied in entering into the marriage is disheartening.”
