Kevin Costner must pay more than $129,000 a month for child support

American actor Kevin Costner must pay $129,755 a month to his ex-wife, model and designer Christine Baumgartner, to support their three children together, a California judge ordered Tuesday.

Costner will also have to pay $200,000 in attorneys’ fees and another $100,000 in expert costs, Fox reported.

Initially, Baumgartner requested $248,000 a month as alimony and for the actor to take care of 100% of his children’s health, sports and extracurricular activities expenses.

However, the judge determined that each one must pay 50% of said payments.

For his part, Costner saw fit to pay $51,940 a month in child support.

The star of “Dancing with Wolves” married Baumgartner, born in the state of Colorado, in September 2004, and they had three children in their 18 years of marriage: Cayden, Hayes and Grace.

Last week a judge ordered Baumgartner to vacate their shared family property in the Santa Barbara, California area by July 31, upholding the terms of the existing prenuptial agreement.

For the actor, his marriage to the model was the second, after the one he had for 16 years with Cindy Silva, which ended in divorce in 1994.

Costner, 68, has four other grown children from previous relationships, three of them with Silva and one with Bridget Rooney.

The “Bodyguard” star starred in Paramount’s hit series “Yellowstone” in recent years.
