Christine Baumgartner, Kevin Costner’s estranged wife, has fled Los Angeles with two of their three children while the exes continue to fight in court.

The 49-year-old handbag designer was pictured being dropped off at LAX airport on Thursday, just hours after Costner, 68, accused her of requesting nearly $250,000 in monthly child support payments to pay for her plastic surgery.

Meanwhile, Hayes Logan, 14, and Grace Avery, 13, arrived dressed in gray sweaters and sleeper trousers.

Despite their long-standing prenup agreement, Christine has refused to leave Costner’s $145 million mansion, even though she had 30 days to evacuate their property after filing for divorce on May 1.

She did, however, recently agree to leave the estate on one condition: more money.

Baumgartner stated in court documents obtained by Radar Online that she will quit the property by the end of August as long as the “Yellowstone” star pays his yet-to-be-determined court-ordered maintenance.

Costner, who also has a 16-year-old son with Baumgartner, is said to have already paid his ex over $1.2 million for his prenuptial obligations.

The mother of three said in her filing that the star wants her to leave without an agreed-upon “financial plan in place.” She expressed concern that having to move many times would be unfair to their children if she ended up in a rental she couldn’t afford.

“My goal has been and continues to be maintaining as much stability for our children as possible, which includes having the proper resources and plan in place so that [I] can establish [a] stable home for them, rather than making temporary and inconsistent housing arrangements,” she explained.

However, according to court filings obtained by Page Six on Thursday, Costner’s estranged wife wants the money for herself, not their children.

Costner, who is said to have a net worth of $250 million, claimed that his forensic accountant discovered she was surreptitiously spending more than $100,000 on cosmetic surgery treatments, in addition to thousands of dollars on boutique shopping, ATM withdrawals, and other expenses.

The “Bodyguard” star was reportedly “blindsided” when Baumgartner filed for divorce last month because he had expected to do it first.

The actor’s “lawyer was getting the paperwork drawn up” when his estranged wife “sneaked attack[ed] him and served[d] him with her own set of divorce papers,” a source told the US Sun over the weekend. “Kevin was so shocked,” the insider stated, claiming that his 18-year wife “has since made him look terrible and has continued to do so.”
