Kevin Costner and Jewel get handsy after ‘Yellowstone’ star’s bitter divorce

Kevin Costner is moving on.

The “Yellowstone” star, 68, has been in the spotlight, lately, for his bitter divorce from ex-wife Christine Baumgartner, and for his alleged feud with “Yellowstone” showrunner Taylor Sheridan, which has left his future on the series uncertain. 

Now, he’s sparking romance rumors with singer Jewel, 49. 

On Friday, TMZ obtained photos of Jewel (whose real name is Jewel Kilcher), speaking into a microphone as Costner, 68, wrapped his arms around her.

Sources told the outlet their relationship is “rather new.”

They were both on the British Virgin Islands for a week last month as part of a tennis fundraiser for the Grammy winner’s Inspiring Children Foundation. Reportedly, they were spending time on Necker Island, owned by Richard Branson.

According to the Daily Mail, he rubbed elbows with fellow celebs such as “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson, 33, and singer Michael Bolton, 70, who were also at the exotic locale.

“There was definitely something going on,” a source told the outlet. “They were flirty. And when they were together, it was like they both just lit up.”

Another insider added, “You could tell they were trying to be discreet, but anybody who saw them could tell something was going on.”

On Nov. 28, Jewel posted about the getaway — and gave a shout-out to Costner — via Instagram.

“A little late posting. Every year, my foundation @inspiringchildren and I go to Necker Island to help host a tennis event w @richardbranson to raise funds for our kids. Amazing players like @geniebouchard come and support us in playing doubles with the folks who come,” she wrote. “I’s an incredible time, and one I use to relax, rest and play w my son!”

She gushed: “@kevincostnermodernwest was kind enough to mentor our kids this year, and Sir Richard was his usual inspiring self- who also plays a mean game of doubles!”

Jewel was linked to Sean Penn in 1995, and from 2008 to 2014 she was married to rodeo cowboy Ty Murray, with whom she has son Kace, 12. 

Costner, meanwhile, has seven children: Annie, 39, Lily, 36, and Joe, 35, from his first marriage to Cindy Silva (from 1978-1994), son Liam, 27, with his ex-girlfriend, Bridget Rooney, and three kids with handbag designer Christine Baumgartner, 49, who he married in 2004. She filed for divorce in May after 18 years of marriage.

After a tumultuous legal battle, including fights over child support, the exes — who share Cayden, 16, Hayes, 14, and Grace, 13settled their divorce in September.

“Kevin and Christine Costner have come to an amicable and mutually agreed upon resolution of all issues pertaining to their divorce proceedings,” they told Page Six in a joint statement at the time.

A judge ordered Costner to pay about $63,000 per month for their three children. Per People, Baumgartner had initially sought about $175,000 per month.

And now, after playing a rancher on TV, Costner appears to be linked to Jewel, who is used to real-life cowboys.
