Meghan King claims relationship with Jim Edmonds is ‘harmful’ for children

Meghan King claims her relationship with ex-husband Jim Edmonds has not improved since their divorce in May 2021.

“We have [a worse] relationship than we did when we broke up,” the former Bravo star, 37, said Wednesday on Caroline Stanbury’s “Divorced Not Dead” podcast.

“It’s terrible. It’s so harmful to the children [and] for us as individuals. It sucks.”

King shares three children with Edmonds: Aspen, 4, and twins Hayes and Hart, 2. After five years of marriage, the “Real Housewives of Orange County” alum claims she learned online that the former professional athlete, 52, was planning to file a divorce.

“Can you believe it? I also found out that he was cheating on me through a tabloid magazine,” King claimed.

“He left me on a Friday and on Saturday it was in the tabloids that he was divorcing me.”

King says she “preferred her children over money” when settling for the divorce.

The dramatic split came after Edmonds was accused multiple times of cheating with King, including their nanny, Carly Wilson. While Edmonds denies the rumours, the Bravo star claims the nanny is “back” and “is currently sleeping at his house”.

Given their tumultuous relationship, the former couple now only communicates through a court-ordered app called Our Family Wizard.

King and Edmonds were engaged in an intense custody battle over their three children.

“It makes me feel more secure because I feel like the verbal abuse is going to be toned down a bit more,” explains King. “Unfortunately, and shockingly, that’s not always the case, but it does give me a little more comfort to know that I have eyes that can be on it.”

Although Edmonds is 14 years older than King, she believes she was always the more “adult” in that relationship.

“I think maybe he’s damaged, or individuals who act the way he does may be so damaged at some point in their lives that they can’t grow to see outside of themselves,” she said.

Aside from the issues the two are currently facing, the Bravolebrity says she has hopes that the couple can one day salvage their relationship for the sake of their children.

King says she is “outnumbered all day every day” by her three children.

“Maybe there is still hope. I will never stop hoping,” she concluded. “Baby steps. I’d love to be able to communicate friendly. I’d love to be at a parent-teacher conference and sit with him and talk about our kids.”

As Vidak For Congress reported earlier this month, King has been dating businessman Trevor Colhoun following her divorce from her third husband, Cuffe Biden Owens, last year.

“Meghan and Trevor keep things private,” a source told us. “But they are very happy in their new relationship.”
