Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner settle their divorce

Actor Kevin Costner and his estranged wife, Christine Baumgartner, settled their divorce Tuesday after months of headlines surrounding the seemingly messy split.

“Kevin and Christine Costner have reached an amicable and mutually agreed resolution to all issues relating to their divorce proceedings,” the two said in a joint statement.

Baumgartner cited “irreconcilable differences” in his May 1 divorce filing to end their nearly 18-year marriage. The couple had three children together, all minors.

The separation gained more attention after a Costner court filing said Baumgartner refused to leave their home in Carpinteria, Calif., near Santa Barbara, despite his repeated requests to leave. The filing said she would not move until he agreed to “various financial demands.”

The ‘Yellowstone’ actor has a prenuptial agreement with Baumgartner that includes an agreement to pay $30,000 a month for child support, and he has reportedly offered to pay an additional amount to help cover the costs of moving.

Baumgartner said in separate documents that Costner publicly attacked her in an attempt to force her out of the house.

A judge ruled that Baumgartner would have to move out by the end of July, rejecting his claims that Costner was unfairly trying to evict him.

Details of the divorce settlement were not immediately available.
