Kevin Costner’s ex-wife Christine Baumgartner moves into $40,000-a-month rent after losing child support offer

Christine Baumgartner has found herself in luxurious accommodations, even though she feels they are not up to par.

Kevin Costner’s ex-wife moved into a $40,000-a-month rental home in Montecito, California on Friday after losing her claim for increased child support, the Daily Mail reported on Monday.

The four-bedroom property sits on an acre of grounds and has a swimming pool, jacuzzi and manicured gardens, and leads to wooded walking trails.

However, during her court testimony, Baumgartner complained that the rental was not comparable to Costner’s waterfront estate, which she and their children have grown accustomed to.

The 49-year-old former model complained that although her rental includes a pool house and guest quarters, visitors “should enter [to the main house] to use the shower.

The new digs are located in Montecito, California, and include a swimming pool and hot tub.

When the ‘Yellowstone’ star, 68, and Baumgartner’s divorce proceedings began, she asked for more than $175,000 in child support, an increase of $46,000 from what he had poured.

However, the former handbag designer’s attorney, John Rydell, later said he and his client were reducing the requested amount to $161,592 per month following an updated valuation by a forensic accountant.

Despite Baumgartner’s decrease, the amount was still a far cry from Costner’s proposal of $60,000 per month, which she felt was insufficient to maintain the status quo.

“Because the children take private planes to go on luxury vacations when they are with their father, the Family Code requires Kevin to pay sufficient child support to Christine so that the children can enjoy comparable vacations when they are with her,” she said. the lawyers said in a brief.

Following the judge’s decision to ask the ‘Field of Dreams’ star to pay $63,000 a month in child support, Costner said he still has love for his estranged wife despite the twist acrimony that their separation had taken.

“It’s a horrible place, but that’s where we are,” he told ‘Access Hollywood’ after winning child support on Friday.

“It’s so distressing,” he said outside the courtroom. “We’re talking about someone I love on the other side. I just can’t.
