Former model and handbag designer Christine Baumgartner, 49, has filed for divorce from A Perfect World actor Kevin Costner, who is also known for appearing in a number of baseball films. The star of Draft Day and Highwaymen is upset by Baumgartner’s decision, according to a statement released by his rep.
“It is with great sadness that circumstances beyond his control have transpired which have resulted in Mr. Costner having to participate in a dissolution of marriage action. We ask that his, Christine’s and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time.”
Baumgartner and her future ex-husband have both requested joint custody of their three children — Cayden, 15, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 12 — and the terms of their divorce are otherwise specified in the prenuptial agreement. The 3 Days to Kill actor learned his lesson after the $80 million he paid to his first wife in their divorce settlement.
