Kevin Costner’s estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, is reportedly demanding $248,000 per month to share custody of their children, People reported Wednesday.

Costner and his wife have been in the thick of a divorce since early May when Baumgartner allegedly surprised the “Yellowstone” star with papers. Less than a year prior, rumors started swirling Baumgartner was allegedly demanding Costner leave his hit show, where he reportedly earns more than $1 million per episode.

The former couple shares three children together, Cayden, 16, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 13, according to the outlet. There is no formal request for spousal support in the documents, which were said to be filed Friday in the Superior Court of California.

Costner’s income for 2022 was listed on the documents as $19,517,064, and their familial expenses (before taxes) were roughly $6,645,285, People noted. (RELATED: ‘Yellowstone’ Creator Reportedly ‘Furious’ With Kevin Costner)
