On two separate occasions in February, the reality star reached out to his estranged wife, Mackenzie Standifer, via text message, which violated a recent court-ordered protection agreement that prohibited any form of contact with the mother-of-three.
"My god I don’t haven’t [sic] to live my life without you! Sorry!" stated the first message, which Edwards sent on Sunday, February 19, at 1:45 a.m., according to legal documents obtained by a news publication.
"For what it’s worth, I’m sorry and I do miss you," expressed the second text, sent on Thursday, February 23, at 4:57 p.m.
"Mrs. Edwards didn’t respond to any messages from Mr. Edwards," the court papers confirmed of Standifer — who recently filed for divorce from her husband of nearly six years on Monday, February 27.
The order of protection was granted to Standifer at the time of Edwards' first arrest on Friday, February 10. Edwards had been taken into custody for harassment, possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance, as OK! previously reported.
