Is there a hint of romance blossoming between Kevin Costner and Jewel? Speculation is swirling around the 68-year-old Oscar-winning actor and the 49-year-old Grammy-winning singer/songwriter following their cozy appearance at a tennis fundraiser for her Inspiring Children Foundation last month. TMZ obtained photographs capturing the moment when Costner had his arms wrapped around Jewel while she delivered a speech at the event on Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands. Both wore smiles as Costner’s hands rested on her waist, creating a buzz about a potential romantic connection.
Although Costner attended the fundraiser as a guest, reports suggest a deeper connection between him and Jewel. Sources at the event informed TMZ about a “rather new” romance between the Yellowstone star and the “Hands” singer. The duo reportedly made a round-trip flight to the Caribbean together and spent over a week hanging out on Necker Island.
On November 28, Jewel shared details about the event on her Instagram page, giving a nod to Costner in her caption. She expressed gratitude for Costner’s mentoring of their kids during the year and mentioned Sir Richard Branson’s involvement in the event. The caption also highlighted the annual tennis event on Necker Island, which aims to raise funds for Jewel’s foundation, Inspiring Children.
Costner and Jewel’s alleged romance follows his recent divorce settlement with Christine Baumgartner, his ex-wife of 18 years, with whom he shares three children. Costner is also a father to three other children from previous relationships. Meanwhile, Jewel has a son named Kase, aged 12, from her past marriage to Ty Murray.
As whispers of a romance between Costner and Jewel circulate, the two celebrities find themselves at the center of speculation, leaving fans and media outlets eager for any official statements or clarifications.
