Judge Smacks Down Kevin Costner's Wife Plea to Halt Eviction From Their $145 Million Mansion

Kevin Costner's estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, had her request to postpone a court hearing denied by a judge. The hearing was meant to determine whether Baumgartner would have to vacate Costner's luxurious estate as part of their ongoing high-profile divorce. She initially requested to reschedule the hearing from July 5 to July 12 but was unsuccessful in her attempt.

Costner had previously accused Baumgartner of violating the terms of their prenuptial agreement by refusing to leave the mansion within 30 days of filing for divorce on May 1. Despite the agreement, Baumgartner has continued to live at the property, disregarding "multiple requests" from Costner to move out. Allegedly, Costner even offered financial assistance to help her find a new residence.

In his legal filings, Costner's lawyers argued that he acted in good faith and made efforts to facilitate a smooth transition. They emphasized that Baumgartner had agreed in 2004, as a condition of their marriage, to vacate Costner's separate property residence in case of a divorce. Costner's previous divorce experience left him without a home base, and he wanted to avoid a similar situation in the future. Given his frequent work-related travel, having a home to return to when he's not on location is particularly important to him.

Costner also claimed that Baumgartner refused to move out unless he agreed to various financial demands. However, according to Costner, he had already paid her $1 million, as stipulated in their prenuptial agreement.The divorce proceedings between Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner remain acrimonious and are still ongoing.
