The year 2023 has been filled with many celebrity breakups and divorces! One of the most saddening stories was that of Reese Witherspoon and her husband of 11 years, Jim Toth. The ex-couple filed for divorce in March 2023 due to “irreconcilable differences.” Reese and Jim settled their divorce in August 2023.
Another shocking divorce was that of Kevin Costner, who got separated from Christine Baumgartner after 18 years of companionship. The couple met in the late 1990s and dated for four years; however, the actor’s fear kept him from marrying Christine. The ex-couple tied the knot in 2014, but nine years later, they have decided to part ways. The two divorces gave rise to speculation that Reese Witherspoon and Kevin Costner might be dating.
