American actor, Kevin Costner’s estranged wife Christine Baumgartner has been awarded six-digit monthly payments in child support after a judge ruled on a tentative child support arrangement.
The 68-year-old Yellowstone will pay his estranged wife Christine Baumgartner, 49, a whopping $129,755 per month in child support payments.
The figure is more than double what Costner had originally offered his ex, and also only a little over half of what she had been asking for.
The decision is only tentative and will be reassessed at a later hearing, according to court documents obtained by Fox News.
The decision comes after Baumgartner was ordered to vacate Costner’s mansion by July 31.
The details of the couple’s prenuptial agreement reportedly required her to move out within 30 days of either party filing for a divorce, a deadline she had missed after she was the first to file.
She previously said in court filings that she would leave the estate on August 31, following the results of a court date originally scheduled for July 12, though it is unclear if that hearing is still on the books.
In the documents, Baumgartner agreed to vacate the premises at the end of August as long as Costner complied ‘with whatever support and fee orders that the court makes on July 12,’ according to TMZ.
The latest decision stipulates that both Costner and his ex split their children’s healthcare costs 50–50.
The former couple share three children: sons Cayden, 16; and Hayes, 14; along with their younger daughter Grace, 13.
