Kevin Costner’s Wife Files for Divorce Over “Irreconcilable Differences”

“Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner and wife of 18 years, Christine, are divorcing. News on the marital split comes from Costner’s representative, who told Fox News Digital that the couple will be getting divorced after nearly two decades of marriage.

Speaking on that, Costner’s representative said, “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.” Continuing, the rep asked for privacy for the couple, saying, “We ask that his, Christine’s and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time.”

TMZ reported must the same thing in its report on the couple’s divorce, saying that it is, as of now, unclear what led to the split, though Christine Clostner cited “irreconcilable difference” as the vague reason. The couple have three children together, aged 12, 14, and 15. Further, there’s a prenup between Christine and Kevin Costner, so she is not asking for spousal support.

The news about Costner’s split with his wife comes hot on the heels of news of his split with the show “Yellowstone,” on which he will have starred for five seasons. News on that came from Deadline, which reported that Costner’s divided attention became “a source of frustration for [creator Taylor] Sheridan.” Further, Deadline added that reported limitations imposed by Costner about how many days he would be available for filming both season 4 and the first half of season 5 was a major source of friction for the Yellowstone cast, staff, and Costner.

As a result, Deadline claimed, Costner and Paramount are parting ways after season 5 of the show and Paramount is now in talks to extend the Dutton saga with a new spinoff led by Matthew McConaughey. MSN, reporting on Yellowstone’s shift away from Costner and toward McConaughey after

After months of speculation, Matthew McConaughey has finally been confirmed for his own Yellowstone spinoff series. According to Paramount Media Networks head Chris McCarthy, the McConaughey-led extension will move forward regardless of whether Yellowstone star Kevin Costner returns to the main series. McCarthy shared the news in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, where he also dropped that he’s currently working on close to a dozen (!) projects with creator Taylor Sheridan.

The drama all started when Yellowstone Season Five took a hiatus before the new year, setting up conflict for a potential Dutton family showdown. Little did we know, a Dutton family standoff was happening in the real world. Costner and Sheridan were allegedly feuding behind the scenes about demanding shooting schedules, and rumors began circulating that it was possible Costner would not return. Yellowstone Season Five still remains unfinished, and there’s been no word about filming anytime soon. “Kevin Costner is a big part of Yellowstone and we hope that’s the case for a long time to come,” Paramount originally announced in a statement back in February. “Thanks to the brilliant mind of Taylor Sheridan, we are always working on franchise expansions of this incredible world he has built.”
