Kevin Costner Spotted Getting Cozy With Jewel After Messy Divorce

In a last-minute 2023 plot twist none of Us saw coming, Kevin Costner was spotted spending time with Jewel on vacation following his divorce from ex-wife Christine Baumgartner.

Costner, 68, and Jewel, 49, were seen getting cozy on Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands while attending a tennis fundraiser for Jewel’s Inspiring Children Foundation. In photos published by TMZ on Friday, December 8, Costner had his arms wrapped around Jewel’s waist as she held a microphone while seemingly addressing a crowd. The pair also posed for a group photo, matching in all-white ensembles.

Costner was a guest at the event, and TMZ reported that he flew to the Caribbean with Jewel. The twosome were “flirty” throughout the visit and later left the island together, per the outlet.

Jewel gave Costner a shout-out last month in an Instagram post recapping her organization’s “incredible” accomplishment. “A little late posting,” she captioned the November 28 upload. “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. … @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!”
