Kevin Costner took the stand in his divorce hearing on Friday, wearing black-framed sunglasses as he was put in the hot seat by estranged wife Christine Baumgartner's legal team while the exes feud in court over child support payments.

Costner got a kick out of one question made by attorney John Rydell, who asked if the film star would swap homes with his ex after a judge ordered the handbag designer to vacate the $145 million California compound they once shared by the end of July.

The Yellowstone actor reportedly chuckled and quipped: "This is tricky!" RadarOnline.com has learned.

"No, I would not but not because I don't think that home is comparable," Costner continued. "I have raised three children in my home, their hands are in the stone. I think most people would understand that."

"There are some features [of her new house] I'd like to have in mine," he stated, Daily Mail reported.

Baumgartner is currently renting a luxury home for $40,000 monthly but has her sights set on a $150,000-a-month home close to her old one, a place that she has expressed would be more suitable for their kids if she can get her child support payments increased.

Costner has been ordered to temporarily pay his ex $129k per month for child support, which she argued isn't enough, instead requesting an estimated $175,057 monthly for their three kids: sons Cayden, 16, and Hayes, 14, and daughter Grace, 13.

That figure is what she said is needed to maintain the life they used to live pre-divorce, while Costner wants to pay only a fraction of that amount amid their bitter battle over his $400 million fortune.

On Thursday, Baumgartner scoffed at claims she has been deceptive about the money she has and that she got $20k from "boyfriend" Josh Connor, saying they are not dating while revealing she gave half the money to her mom and returned the other half to Connor.
