Kevin Costner's marriage to his wife, Christine Baumgartner, is over, but what does this mean for the couple's future finances and the fortune he has amassed during his lengthy career?

The 69-year-old Yellowstone star is worth a staggering $250 million according to CelebrityNetworth.com while the former model's is significantly less. 

TMZ were the first to report the couple had split and Kevin's statement via his representative later confirmed he did not want their marriage to end.

"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,” the statement read. "We ask that his, Christine’s and their children’s privacy be respected as they navigate this difficult time."

Kevin and Christine, 49, share three children, Cayden, 15, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 12, and she is seeking joint custody of them.

Kevin was previously married to Cindy Silva from 1978 to 1994, with whom he shares three children - Annie, 39, Lily, 36, and Joe, 35. He also has a son, Liam, with Bridget Rooney, whom he dated after his split from Cindy. His first divorce settlement saw Cindy walk away with $50 million

News of his divorce from Christine comes after fresh details about Kevin's rift with Yellowstone creator Taylor Sheridan came to light. 

Sources claimed that Taylor's alleged "God complex" has left Costner frustrated with the development of the hit Paramount Network series.

There are also reports that Costner's character, John Dutton, may be killed off in the second half of Yellowstone's current fifth season.

The first half of the season ended on New Year's Day, with the second half initially scheduled to premiere this summer, though that timeline now seems uncertain. 

Kevin, who is directing his Western saga Horizon, reportedly wanted to film the second half of the season for only one week.

It remains unclear when production on the new episodes of Yellowstone Season 5 will begin, or if they will indeed feature the death of John Dutton.
