Kevin Costner Speaks on Relationship With 'Special' Jewel Amid Romance Rumors

The 'Yellowstone' actor and the 'Foolish Games' singer have addressed speculation about their relationship after sparking dating rumors with their frequent public appearances together.

AceShowbiz - Kevin Costner and Jewel Kilcher have been the subject of romance rumors for months, with fans and media speculating about a potential love connection between the two stars. However, the pair have now addressed these rumors, bringing some clarity to their relationship status.

On Tuesday, June 18, during an episode of SiriusXM's "The Howard Stern Show", Costner cleared the air about his relationship with the "Foolish Games" singer, stating, "Jewel and I are friends. We've never gone out." He emphasized the importance of their friendship, adding, "She's special, and I don't want these rumors to ruin our friendship because that's what we have." This supports the consistent narrative that while they share mutual respect and camaraderie, there's no romantic connection between them.

Costner, known for his roles in iconic films and the TV series "Yellowstone", further elaborated on how they met. "I got on a plane with nine people-Jewel was one of them," he recounted, referring to a trip to Richard Branson's private island in the British Virgin Islands. Despite the lack of romantic involvement, he acknowledged that Jewel is "somebody I just had some tremendous conversations with."

Jewel, for her part, has also addressed the speculation but in a more reserved manner. In an interview with Elle published on April 10, the singer described Costner as "a great person" and commented on the public's fascination with their bond, noting, "The public fascination is intense for sure." While she praised him, she did not set the record straight, which left fans guessing.

The intrigue deepened when Jewel was asked about her relationship status in a profile with PEOPLE. Jewel conveyed that she has found love but specified that it was self-love, not linked to any man. "I found love and I'm not talking about Kevin's. I'm so happy, irrelevant of a man," she expressed, effectively shutting down the rumors while highlighting her journey towards self-fulfillment.

The rumors gained traction after the duo were seen together at several events, including a gala where they appeared quite close, with Costner wrapping his arms around Jewel. Photos from these events fueled speculation, but both have remained firm on their stance of just being friends.

Kevin Costner is emerging from a challenging period following a contentious divorce battle with Christine Baumgartner, finalized in February. Jewel, similarly, is years past her divorce from her ex, rodeo champion Ty Murray, which concluded in 2014. Both appear focused on their personal growth and professional endeavors rather than new romantic entanglements.

In conclusion, while their camaraderie may lend itself to speculation, Kevin Costner and Jewel maintain they are simply friends. Their mutual respect and shared experiences seem to form the foundation of their bond-one rooted in friendship and not romance.
