Oh My God! Kevin Costner’s Estranged Wife DEMANDS $575k Of Legal Fees Amidst Divorce Battle! (Details Inside)

In the midst of an ongoing court struggle with his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, Kevin Costner is caught in the middle of a legal storm as she asks for an extra $575,000 to pay for her legal bills and expert charges. Following a recent court order, Baumgartner will now get child support payments from Costner of $63,209 per month, which is a big decrease from her initial request of $161,592 for the same.

Baumgartner's attorneys contend that her legal expenditures are reasonable in a recent court document, claiming that "Christine's total fees and expert costs were about one-half of Kevin's – yet she is the "out spouse." There is no contest that Kevin can pay the fees and that they are reasonable.

Baumgartner's request for child support had already been reduced by more than half thanks to Costner's legal team. In November, the legal conflict is expected to heat up as attention turns to their prenuptial agreement.

According to court records, Costner has already been ordered by the judge to pay Baumgartner $100,000 in expert expenses and $200,000 in attorney fees by August 1. Despite this, it is determined that a sizeable further contribution is required to continue the legal battle and guarantee the matter goes to trial in November.

Costner has consistently been referred to by Baumgartner's attorneys as "a man of extraordinary wealth." This assertion is supported by Costner's substantial earnings, which include an astounding $11 million for his part in Season 4 of the hit television show Yellowstone, making him one of the highest-paid TV performers. He obtained $10 million for just eight episodes of Season 5, greatly enhancing his financial standing.

Costner is also producing the eagerly awaited Horizon quartet of movies. Despite deferring his payouts deliberately, Costner earned an astounding $12 million for each of the first two movies, which have already been shot. His annual cash flow for 2021 and 2022 was a startling $19,248,467, according to a forensic accounting.
