Kevin Costner’s first wife Cindy Silva spotted amid actor’s second divorce
In the midst of his second divorce, Kevin Costner’s first wife, Cindy Silva, was recently seen out and about.
A photo of Silva in the parking lot of a Gelson’s grocery store in California shows her standing near her car.
Wearing black leggings, a long denim shirt, and Birkenstock sandals, the 66-year-old looked casual.
Costner was married to Silva from 1978 until 1994, and they have three children together: Annie, Lily, and Joe. A statement at the time of their divorce said Costner, then 39, and Silva, then 38, were saying, “After 16 years together, we are ending our marriage.” They also have a son with Bridget Rooney, and three children with Christine Baumgartner, his soon-to-be ex-wife. All issues pertaining to our children and financial affairs have been amicably resolved, and a full marital settlement has been reached.”
According to reports, Silva received $80 million in the settlement.
Costner worked as a stage manager at Delta and Silva worked in marketing. With his Hollywood career taking off, his schedule became more demanding.
During their marriage, Costner’s Hollywood star rose with box office hits like “The Untouchables,” “Bull Durham” and “Field of Dreams.” In 1990, he directed, produced and starred in “Dances with Wolves,” which won him two Oscars: best picture and best director and best actor nomination.
After his Oscar success with “Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves,” “JFK” and “The Bodyguard,” both starring Whitney Houston, Costner entered his film career peak at that point.
Costner spoke of his divorce in a 2012 interview with The Hollywood Reporter, saying, “My faith was shaken. No one wants their marriage to end, and it did. You are going to see your children half as much now.”
Baumgartner, Costner’s second wife, is now divorcing him.
Last week, a judge ruled in favor of Costner in one of the couple’s initial court hearings, ordering Baumgartner to vacate the property by April 30.
A pre-marital agreement apparently stipulated that she would move out of the house within 30 days, and she would also no longer live in any of his properties if they divorced.
“Waterworld” star didn’t have a prenuptial agreement in his first marriage, and the reported $80 million settlement represented a large chunk of his net worth.
