Things are getting nasty between Meghan King Edmonds and her estranged husband Jim Edmonds. After the former MLB player filed for divorce following a fight at their home, the Bravo star accused him of cheating with their nanny.
Us Weekly confirmed on October 25 that the Real Housewives of Orange County alum, 35, and Jim, 49, split after five years of marriage. The pair allegedly got into an argument and the cops were called. However, no one was arrested and Jim then filed for divorce.
According to the outlet, Meghan accused the ex-baseball player for “having an affair” with their children’s nanny. The couple share three children, daughter Aspen, 2, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 16 months.
One source dished to Us Weekly, that Meghan confronted Jim and the nanny. Both the nanny and Jim denied the accusations and after a week of bickering, he filed for divorce on October 25. Meghan and Jim celebrated their anniversary just a day prior.
“The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family,” a source said. “During the argument, Meghan called the cops, but nothing came of it. Jim didn’t put his hands on her. The police chalked it up to a verbal dispute. No arrests were made.”
The reality personality and the Fox Sports Midwest broadcaster married in October 2014. Their relationship was also rocked with scandal this past June when Jim was caught sexting another woman.
He admitted to the infidelity at the time but he swore he never had a physical relationship with the woman. “Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person. But at no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none," he told Us Weekly on June 13.
Just several days before the divorce announcement, Meghan confessed to the Daily Dish that she and Jim were in couple's counseling. "We’re just still working it day by day. I think after such a breach of trust, it’s so hard to rebuild from there, especially with so many distractions, like our son’s health problems and two other little babies as well. And so to focus on the two of us as a couple, is really hard,” Meghan said.
