Kevin Costner's Divorce Becomes Contentious
Kevin Costner's divorce from his estranged wife, Christine, is becoming increasingly contentious. Christine has accused the actor of not providing necessary financial information prior to a court hearing regarding child support. The couple, who were married for 18 years, announced their divorce in May and have three children together.
Christine Files Court Documents
Christine has filed court documents to compel her ex-partner, Kevin, to produce documents related to his business dealings, including upcoming entertainment projects. The documents reveal that Kevin has requested a multi-day evidentiary hearing on Christine's request for child support, during which the court will assess his gross cash flow and anticipated future income. Kevin has also requested a trial to determine the validity of their premarital agreement, which will depend on an analysis of how the agreement's terms compare to their current financial situations.
Accusations of Withholding Evidence
In a legal case involving Christine and Kevin, Christine's attorney has stated that Kevin may be withholding evidence. The attorney argues that the court will need to receive evidence to make a determination, but Christine will not be able to present any evidence that Kevin has chosen to withhold from discovery.
Dispute Over Child Support
In June, Christine requested $248,000 per month in child support. However, Costner disputed the request, claiming that he could not afford that amount. Despite his reported income of $20 million, the actor argued against the requested child support. Costner has been busy promoting his new Western series, "Horizon," which was mentioned in the legal documents.
Attorneys Request Details
Attorneys are requesting details about an upcoming project from an actor, as they believe it will provide evidence of his future endeavors and expected income. They accuse the actor of withholding this paperwork. The actor's attorney responded, calling the request burdensome, oppressive, and harassing.
Documents Deemed Irrelevant
In a recent development, documents related to Kevin Costner's finances have been deemed irrelevant to his ex-wife Christine's request for child support. According to Costner's attorney, these documents have no impact on Christine's ability to calculate the gross cash flow available for child support. It is worth noting that Christine is entitled to a $1.5 million payout as per their premarital agreement and was granted temporary child support of $129,755 per month in July.
