Kevin Costner’s Friends Fear He’s Headed For Breakdown Amid Divorce Drama: …

Those closest to Kevin Costner fear that the star might be headed for a breakdown as he continues to push himself to the limit.

As we’ve previously reported, it’s been a difficult year for the Hollywood legend.

In addition to his messy divorce from Christine Baumgartner, Costner is in the midst of some major career upheaval.

Costner stepped away from his hit series Yellowstone in order to focus on writing, directing and starring in a multi-part Western epic.

The first installment of Horizon: An American Saga hits theaters next month. And for Costner, the stakes couldn’t be higher.

The ambitious star sold his home in Santa Barbara in order to partially self-finance the project. That means, of course, that he really needs a hit.

Now, a source close to the star tells Life & Style that all that stress has taken a significant toll.

“You could see how ‘shell-shocked’ Kevin has been after the last year and a half where he got divorced, fought publicly with the Yellowstone bosses and had to make these two Horizon movies with his own money before he could convince anybody to release them,” says the insider, who recently spent time with Costner at CinemaCon.

“The whole ordeal aged him. And you see that in his body language, his spaced-out, glassy stare, and the slow, raspy way he speaks.”

Costner’s very public divorce and the news that his ex-wife is dating his friend Josh Connor couldn’t have been easy.

But according to the insider, it’s the career stress that’s really gotten to the Oscar-winning filmmaker.

“There’s such a thing as giving too much of yourself to a movie project. And that’s what’s happened to Kevin here,” the source adds.

“Friends worry about Kevin because of the wars he’s been through in the last year and a half: his marriage ending, his fight with the Yellowstone bosses, and the monumental battle to get Horizon: An American Saga made,” says the insider.

According to the insider, Costner has a gift for handling tremendous amounts of stress. But he might have finally bitten off more than he can chew.

“Everybody has their limits, even somebody as self-reliant as Kevin. And you can see how hard he’s pushed himself when you spend a little time with him in person,” says the source.

“His plans for this summer are extremely ambitious, but does he really have the energy to execute them? That’s an open question right now.”

Fortunately, the 69-year-old has plenty of support to help him navigate this challenging period in his life.

Costner’s relationship with Jewel is reportedly getting quite serious, and he remains a beloved figure in the industry.

And if his Horizon gamble pays off, Costner could find himself more in demand than ever!
