Kevin Costner’s wife found his ‘absence very hard’ when away filming

Hollywood fans were in shock last week when news broke of Christine Baumgartner, 49, filing for divorce after 18 years of marriage to Kevin Costner, 68.

She cited “irreconcilable differences” with sources now coming forward claiming Costner’s busy work schedule put a strain on their marriage.

Christine reportedly found the Yellowstone actor’s absence “hard” and wished he spent more time at home with their family in Santa Barbara.

A source told People: “During filming, Kevin is not around very much. His absence has been very hard for her.”

Costner’s career began to pick up speed again due to Yellowstone, with Christine reportedly becoming concerned as the actor went straight onto a new project, Horizon.

The actor and filmmaker has been filming in Utah for his new film Horizon, which marks his first directorial project in 20 years, since 2003’s Open Range.

The source continued: “Christine doesn’t want him to throw himself into another project. He has been obsessed with filming Horizon since last year. She wasn’t happy about it.

“At times, his career has taken precedence over his home life.”

The source added due to his busy work life Kevin “took his attention away from his family home more than he realised”.

Costner filed his response to the divorce on Tuesday, and he is also seeking joint custody of their children.

The former couple have three children together: Cayden, 15, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 12.

Costner’s representatives released a statement confirming the news reading: “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.”

Costner was seen for the first time last Tuesday at a golfing range in St George, since the news hit, with the actor making a cool appearance.

He was previously married to Cindy Silva from 1978 to 1994 and they share three children – Annie, 39, Lily, 36, and Joe, 35.

He also shares a son Liam Costner with Bridget Rooney, who he dated after his split with Silva.

Last week, Paramount confirmed Yellowstone would be ending following the current season.
