Kevin Costner is apparently dating Jewel after a visit to Necker Island

Every year around this time, Richard Branson hosts a big party and “tennis tournament” at his private island, Necker Island. Some of my favorite tennis stars have ended up on Necker, playing tennis with celebrities and enjoying an all-expenses-paid vacation. Well, this year, Kevin Costner was invited to Necker and he stayed there for something like two full weeks. Page Six had some updates about how Costner – who only settled his bitter divorce in September – was really enjoying himself there. Now TMZ has given the reason why: Kevin Costner was loved up with JEWEL!!

Kevin Costner is apparently rebounding after his split from Christine Baumgartner because he and Jewel are now a thing … sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ.

These pics were shot on Richard Branson’s Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands … where the 2 of them were part of a tennis fundraiser for the Inspiring Children Foundation. Jewel is the founder of the org, and Kevin was a guest.

Here’s what we know. The 2 flew to the Caribbean together and hung out a lot for more than a week. As one source put it, “There was definitely something going on. They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up.”

One source added, “You could tell they were trying to be discreet, but anybody who saw them could tell something was going on.”

Jewel had mentioned Kevin on social media, talking about the event, writing … “it’s an incredible time, and one I use to relax, rest and play w my son! @kevincostnermodernwest was kind enough to mentor our kids this year.”

They played doubles with Sir Richard, who, as she says, “plays a mean game!”

We’re told the 2 also flew back together.

I’m consistently surprised by Jewel’s pop culture staying power. Like, she could have been a one-hit wonder in the ‘90s, never heard from again, but she’s stuck around and now she’s banging Kevin Costner?? She’s 49 years old – he’s 68. The age difference is significant, but she’s nearly 50 so I don’t think it’s that bad? They seem like an odd couple but maybe it works. Her son is 12 years old… yeah, I could see it.
