Kevin Costner, known for his portrayal of John Dutton in the TV series “Yellowstone,” is leaving the show due to a scheduling conflict.
This caused concern among fans, but it has been announced that Costner’s journey on the show will continue thanks to a new production timetable.
The rumors of his departure stemmed from his desire to focus on filming a Western movie called “Horizon,” but he will now reportedly be able to balance both projects.

Kevin Costner’s divorce from Christine Baumgartner was finalized in September 2023 after a four-month legal battle.
Baumgartner filed for divorce in May 2023, citing irreconcilable differences. Costner and Baumgartner met in the ’90s and got married in 2004, having three children together.
Costner expressed sadness and a desire to save the marriage, while Baumgartner felt that Costner prioritized work over their family.
The divorce was influenced by the delays in Costner’s TV series Yellowstone, which caused him to miss time with his family.
Baumgartner denied pressuring Costner to leave the show.
Delays in the filming of Yellowstone’s final season have caused tension between them, with Costner’s team considering moving the show to California to accommodate his schedule.

Money has also been a point of contention, with Costner accusing Baumgartner of withdrawing funds from his bank account without his knowledge.
Baumgartner requested $248,000 per month in child support, arguing that it is necessary to maintain their children’s lifestyle.
Costner claims he cannot afford this amount since his income will decrease after leaving Yellowstone.
The couple has also been disputing the division of their shared home and household items.
