Most divorces are messy, but Kevin Costner and wife Christine Baumgartner's divorce is on a whole other level.
Christine filed for divorce in May 2023 citing irreconcilable differences after almost a decade of marriage, with the couple getting hitched back in September 2004. Kevin and Christine share sons Cayden Wyatt and Hayes Logan, and a daughter Grace Avery. Costner is also the father to four older children from previous relationships.
In court documents obtained by People, the couple said they had been separated since April. Since filing for divorce, the exes have been in the news after it was reported in June that Kevin complained that Christine hadn't moved out yet. Costner said that there was a clause in their prenuptial agreement that stipulated she had 30 days to leave the house after filing for divorce.
And now things keep getting even messier for the warring exes. In court documents obtained by Daily Mail, the divorce has become pettier than ever. In an email, Christine had to request permission to remove pots and pans, a dog bed, a beach umbrella, two swivel chairs, a juicer and an exercise bike from the Santa Barbara home.
In the email, Christine offered to photograph the items she wanted to take.
The email prompted Costner’s lawyer Jacqueline Misho to respond to Christine's requests with "It is not a good idea to bite the hand that feeds," the email read.
Christine was apparently told that if she wished to remove any items from the house, she would need to apply in writing first. However, the Yellowstone actor did permit her to remove her toiletries, handbags, clothing, jewellery and "some Christmas decorations" without his permission.
A source told the news website that "You have a star worth many millions arguing with his wife about whether she can take a salad spinner from the kitchen without agreement in writing," they said. "It’s petty beyond belief."
