In an interview with Elle, Jewel seemingly confirmed that she is dating Costner while discussing her life and career.

The singer described the "Yellowstone" star as "a great person," a sure sign that their bond has grown in bounds since they first met. However, for Jewel, the public attention on them has not gone unnoticed, as she described fans' "fascination" with them as "intense."

Rumors of the duo being an item first swirled after they were captured being cozy around guests during a private charity event on a mutual friend's island.

At the time, Jewel also took to social media to share highlights from the event, further confirming the duo's closeness.

One of the photos captured Jewel holding a microphone and speaking to the guests while seemingly seated on Costner's lap. In the cute shot, Costner affectionately wrapped his arms around the singer's waist.

Costner's rumored relationship with Jewel is his first since divorcing ex-wife Christine Baumgartner.

The duo were married for nearly two decades and welcomed three children: Cayden Wyatt, Hayes Logan, and Grace Avery. Costner also has four children from other relationships.

According to reports, Baumgartner did not see it coming but thinks their being an item "makes sense" due to their similar interests.

"She never could have imagined he and Jewel dating, but in retrospect, it makes sense," a close friend of the handbag designer told the Daily Mail.

They added, "They're both into music, into that cowboy thing. What's not to like about her [?] At least Jewel is a down-to-earth person and has her own thing going on."

The source also mentioned that Baumgartner was somewhat relieved that Costner chose Jewel because she was concerned about him being with someone who was only interested in his wealth.

Costner and Jewel allegedly met through their mutual friend Richard Branson, who invited the singer to hold her charity event on his island.

"Richard is 100 percent responsible for Kevin and Jewel hooking up. She has been a friend of Branson's for years, and he has been a close friend of Kevin's since the 1990s," an insider told Fox News at the time the duo were linked.

The source continued, "Richard invited Jewel to hold her charity fundraiser on Necker and, honestly, the hookup happened organically. They hit it off well, and Jewel seems to be happy about it."

Amid the speculations, Costner has continued to keep mute about his alleged romance with Jewel. However, reports have it that they spent the New Year together in Colorado based on individual sightings at the location.

While Costner seems to have moved on with Jewel, Baumgartner is allegedly in a relationship with financier Josh Connor.

According to reports, Connor was a neighbor and friend to the former couple, and it is unclear if he started dating the handbag designer prior to the finalization of her divorce from Costner.

The duo reportedly share similar interest in "ocean and beach life", and the financier was there for Baumgartner during her divorce. They even allegedly vacationed together in Hawaill while Baumgartner battled in court with Costner.

Meanwhile, Costner has refused to address Connor and Baumgartner's alleged romance, even denying that the financier is a next-door neighbor when questioned by a paparazzo.

He and Baumgartner settled their divorce in September based on an amicable and mutually agreed-upon resolution of all issues tabled during the divorce proceedings.

During his Tuesday attendance at CinemaCon to promote his upcoming film "Horizon: An American Saga," Costner got candid about his potential return to "Yellowstone" following his exit.

Costner quit filming following the release of the first half of season five as tensions rose between him and co-creator Taylor Sheridan, forcing the show to go on a hiatus.

The "Draft Day" actor has now disclosed that he'd "love" to reprise his role as John Dutton for the show's second half and final season, which is expected to drop in November.

"I'd like to be able to do it, but we haven't been able to," Costner told Entertainment Tonight"I thought I was going to make seven [seasons] but right now we're at five. So how it works out -- I hope it does -- but they've got a lot of different shows going on. Maybe it will. Maybe this will circle back to me. If it does and I feel really comfortable with [it], I'd love to do it."
