Actor Kevin Coster is reportedly getting back on the dating scene after his messy divorce, with none other than the singer Jewel!
Kevin Coster shocked fans earlier this year when his wife of nearly 20 years, Christine Baumgartner, filed for divorce in May of this year. The divorce got complicated immediately due to having three children together, both making not-so-nice claims about each other in court, and especially over the issues of finances.
After much back and forth, the former couple finally settled their divorce in September, which is unusually fast for Hollywood, believe it or not!
Baumgartner originally asked for $162,000 in child support, but the court finally deemed Costner responsible for $63,00 a month.
Costner has reportedly started to move on.
After the divorce was finalized, Costner told the press he would be focusing on spending more time with his children, which he has. In a new turn of events, multiple outlets have reported that Costner is back on dating scene…with the singer Jewel.
They were spotted in the Virgin Islands getting very cozy. Every year, Jewel teams up with Richard Bransen, who owns Necker Island – where they were spotted, to put on a tennis event “to raise funds for kids.”
Jewel celebrated the time with a video post on Instagram, and even said the Coster was “kind enough to mentor our kids this year.”
The singer is the founder of the organization Inspiring Children Foundation.
The video included photos of Jewel and her son, Kase, exploring the beauty of the island, but also included a snap shot of her with Costner and a few other people.
TMZ obtained a photo of Costner and Jewel getting extra cozy.
According to TMZ, the two actually flew to the island together and spent lots of time together, “more than a week,” as TMZ puts it. TMZ says one source revealed, “There was definitely something going on. They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up.”
The photo TMZ published shows Jewel speaking into a microphone while leaning on Costner, who was sitting on a barstool. His hans can be seen wrapped around hedr stomach in a loving embrace.
According to TMZ, a source said, “You could tell they were trying to be discreet, but anybody who saw them could tell something was going on.”
Jewel is also a divorced parent.
Jewel was previously married to bull rider Ty Murray and they share a 12-year-old son, Kase. They split up in 2014.
We sure they both have lots in common, seeing as they are both musicians, parents, and have been through public break ups. We wish them nothing but the best!
