Jewel Had 'Love' on the Brain Hours Before Kevin Costner Romance Rumor Made Headlines


Jewel has had love on the brain lately, if new reports are to be believed.

On Dec. 7, not too long before news broke that she was reportedly dating Kevin Costner, 68, the "Foolish Games" songstress, 49, hinted toward the power of love on social media, when she shared a video of a bride surprising her groom by walking down the aisle on their wedding day.

Carrie Redhead began using a wheelchair two years ago, when a rare disease affecting her digestion, called intestinal lymphangiectasia, or Waldmann’s disease, began to affect her mobility too severely to walk. With a bit of assistance, she walked all the way to her fiancé, before they both took a seat for their ceremony.

Jewel reposted the video from the BBC on her Instagram Stories, writing, “I’m done. Geez. Love is powerful.”

Hours later, photos of her and the Horizon actor cozying up together in the Caribbean surfaced.

The snaps, first posted by TMZ, were reportedly taken on British entrepreneurial mogul and astronaut Richard Branson's Necker Island in the British Virgin Islands—where Jewel's organization, Inspiring Children Foundation, hosted a fundraiser, inviting Costner as a guest.

However, sources reported that the pair flew out together, spending over a week in the tropics.

"There was definitely something going on [between the two]," one source observed. "They were flirty, and when they were together, it was like they both just lit up."

"You could tell they were trying to be discreet," another said. "But anybody who saw them could tell something was going on."

Costner, of course, recently separated from Christine Baumgartner, settling their contentious and very public divorce just three months ago.
