Yellowstone actor Kevin Costner has reportedly told his estranged wife Christine Baumgartner she has just days to vacate their family home in California.

US media reported the bitter divorce battle between the pair has taken a nastier turn with Costner filing papers in court to ensure Baumgartner is out of the house by July 13.

In court documents obtained by People this week which were filed on June 30, Costner said he "respectfully requests" the former handbag designer "vacate his separate property residence forthwith and no later than July 13, 2023." 

Costner cited part of a premarital agreement they both signed in 2004 which stated she would leave their marital home within 30 days if a separation were ever to occur.

However, TMZ reported Baumgartner had pushed back on the request, calling it "unfair."

Her lawyers argued the date doesn't give her enough time or money to find an adequate place to live and have reportedly sought an extension to August 15. TMZ also reported she had been ordered by a court to vacate the home by July 31.

Earlier this week, details emerged of how Costner was pushing back on Baumgartner's child support requests for US$248,000 per month.

Calling the request "highly inflated and unsubstantiated", the legal papers suggested the "guideline monthly child support based on Kevin's gross cash flow available for support is [US]$123,620".

"Providing the minor children with more than bare necessities does not require providing ludicrous extravagance designed to primarily benefit the supported parent."

The pair share three children together: 16-year-old Cayden, 14-year-old Hayes, and 13-year-old Grace. They married in 2004.
