Reese Witherspoon has responded to rumors that she is dating Kevin Costner. Despite rumors of a new romance spreading online, a representative for Reese, 47, quashed recent reports that she’s dating Kevin, 68, on Thursday. According to People, her representative called the rumor “completely fabricated.”
“This story is completely fabricated and not true,” a representative for Reese Witherspoon told People. The dating rumors emerged shortly after the two stars finalized their respective divorces.
In March of this year, Reese and ex-husband Jim Toth announced their separation in a statement and she filed for divorce a week later. By August, they had struck an agreement. Meanwhile, Kevin Costner and Christine Baumgartner, his now ex-wife, separated in May. They had three children during their 18-year marriage. Reese has three children from her two marriages as well.
Reese Witherspoon broke her silence on her divorce in July, stating that she was grateful to be able to share the news of the breakup herself. In an interaction with Harper’s Bazaar, she said, “To be able to talk to people directly about what’s going on in my life and just share it in the way that I share great professional experiences or personal experiences, it feels much more authentic to be able to say things in my own voice and not let somebody else control what’s happening.”
