Kevin Costner’s estranged wife Christine demands more alimony

The former designer wants $175,057 a month in alimony from the Hollywood actor. She is currently paid $129,000 a month. Costner originally argued he only wanted to pay $60,000 to his children’s mother. But why are the previous 129,000 not enough?

The luxurious lifestyle is “in the DNA” of the three children together, argued lawyer John Rydell in the interest of his client. According to “People”, in the courtroom, Christine Baumgartner leafed through evidence photos, impressions of the family’s daily life, and sobbed. “It’s so much more than this — it’s an experience,” she said. Her three children are “very connected to the sea – it’s their home,” she said.

“Christine is making this application to uphold these principles of family law and to ensure that the parties’ three minor children continue to enjoy the lifestyle made possible by Kevin’s substantial income and wealth,” the statement said court documents. The fact that Costner is solvent is clear to the other side. His’ various accounts and facilities as of June 30, 2023 [verfügen] totaling $17,293,117 in cash equivalents, providing him with ample funds to pay his alimony and also to pay attorneys’ fees and costs for both parties.”

The requested $175,057 per month “won’t be enough to replicate Kevin’s lifestyle,” it argues, but could allow for “relatively comparable lifestyles” for children Cayden, Hayes and Grace.

If Christine Costner is right, her estranged husband will have to adjust the payments retrospectively as of July 1st.
