Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner have agreed to terms of a divorce settlement after a four-month court battle, multiple sources confirmed to Fox News Digital.
Terms of the settlement were not immediately disclosed. The settlement comes as the estranged couple were heading back to court to establish who would be responsible for paying nearly $1 million in her attorneys’ fees.
Baumgartner filed for divorce on May 1 citing irreconcilable differences. In documents obtained by Fox News Digital, Christine cited April 11 as the date of separation.
She initially requested $248,000 in monthly child support for their three children, and a judge set a temporary monthly sum of $129,755 in July, only to rule in September that Costner would actually be responsible for $63,209 in monthly child support payments.
“Support greater than $63,209 per month is disguised spousal support,” Judge Thomas Anderle wrote in his filed decision. “Christine will have her opportunity to convince the Court that she is entitled to spousal support.”
Costner and Baumgartner both filed for joint custody of their three children: Cayden, 16, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 13.
Anderle also ruled on Sept. 1 that the “Yellowstone” star would be solely responsible for the children’s health care, private school tuition, extracurricular activities and the couple’s oldest son’s car expenses.
In documents obtained by Fox News Digital last week, Baumgartner claimed she was “willing” to accept a previous divorce settlement with Costner before the terms were switched and she backed out.
Christine’s revelation came to light after his legal team labeled Baumgartner’s $855,000 request for attorneys’ fees “nothing short of outrageous.”
Baumgartner’s team, in court documents obtained by Fox News Digital, set out to show the former purse designer attempted to settle matters outside court but claimed the “Field of Dreams” actor insisted on using litigation instead, and racked up court costs.
