Christine Baumgartner is doing everything she can to make her case but Kevin Costner’s lawyers are having none of it.

In the latest developments of the former couple’s divorce,  Christine Baumgartner has asked a judge to make him pay an eyewatering £708,000($885k) to argue a single issue in divorce court.

This “outrageous” request left the Yellowstone star’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, in disbelief as she filed her blistering response.

Christine’s lawyers say it will take a six-figure amount to make their case and expect Kevin to cough up the amount, but Laura fired back pointing out, that based on hourly rates, Christine’s legal team would have to put in 1,106 hours to justify the fee.

Laura, who has settled divorces for the likes of Kim Kardashian and Britney Spears, clapped back calling Christine’s plea “nothing short of outrageous,” also noting the judge has already indicated the prenup is enforceable.

This comes after a losing streak for Christine and her legal team in the settlement process. 

Christine has not only lost most of the legal battles throughout the divorce but she’s actually lost more than if she had just settled with Kevin.

For example, she originally asked for $198,541.36 ($248k) a month in child support, which Kevin rejected and claimed the reasonable amount was £50,435.91 ($63k).

As per Kevin’s lawyer, the John Dutton actor has already paid out £240,171.00 ($300k) in legal fees to Christine and has also allegedly taken a further £120,079.50 ($105k) from his accounts to feed her legal team.

To potentially make matters worse for Christine, if she were to challenge the prenup and lose, she would have to pay back over a million dollars Kevin once gave her, as well as his lawyer’s fees.

The estranged couple filed for a divorce in May 2023 after 18 years of marriage. 

They share three children together, Cayden Wyatt, 15, Hayes Logan, 14, and Grace Avery, 13.
