Christine Baumgartner, the estranged wife of Kevin Costner, has indicated that she is willing to leave the house that she and Kevin Costner formerly shared, but she will only do so if she is certain that her soon-to-be ex-husband would not abandon her and leave her penniless.
According to court documents obtained by RadarOnline, the 49-year-old handbag designer, who is said to have ‘blindsided’ Costner when she handed him divorce papers, has agreed to leave the $145 million mansion on the condition that Costner, 68, agrees to pay any support and fees that a judge orders at an upcoming hearing. The documents were obtained by RadarOnline. Costner is a well-known actor.
In the filings, Baumgartner indicates that she is willing to evacuate the property on August 31 of this year, provided that Costner complies “with whatever support and fee orders that the court makes on July 12.” This date corresponds to the next hearing in the couple’s divorce proceedings, which will take place on July 12.
This arrangement would give her 50 days to find a new place to live and to move into it, but the prenuptial agreement reportedly stipulated that she would leave the original home within 30 days of a divorce filing. The arrangement would give her 50 days to find a new place to live and to move into it.
She noted that she was afraid to leave her home without having a plan and financing in place, if only for the sake of her children, whom she does not want to have to move several times. She also mentioned that she was hesitant to leave her home for the sake of her husband.
