Kevin Costner Reportedly ‘Stunned’ By Wife Divorcing Him, Source Says There Was No Cheating

Kevin Costner has been in the news quite a bit lately for professional reasons, as along with continuing to shoot his Western epic Horizon, there’s been chatter about behind-the-scenes conflicts interfering with his work on Yellowstone, and today even brought word that he’s allegedly leaving the Paramount Network series after Season 5. However, on the personal side of things, it was reported yesterday that Costner and his wife Christine Baumgartner are divorcing after 18 years of marriage. This turn of events reportedly “stunned” the actor, and a source is saying that he did not cheat on her.

As already shared, Baumgartner filed for divorce on Monday, but no specific reasoning has been made public for why she’s done so, only the standard “irreconcilable differences.” According to individuals who spoke with Page Six, Costner was surprised by his wife wanting to end the marriage, and one of them states that “there was no issue of cheating at all.” Costner and Baumgartner were publicly seen together being photographed at the 95th Academy Awards, and there wasn’t any indication that things were amiss between them. This unnamed friend added:

Kevin was very surprised by Christine’s actions, he obviously doesn’t want the divorce and he would take her back. It’s disappointing, he loves her and he loves his children.
