If you and your partner feel like you’re having relationship difficulties, I urge you to gain perspective with a cursory examination of the relationship between former Major League Baseball star Jim Edmonds and his estranged wife Meghan King Edmonds.
Last month, just one day after the couple’s fifth wedding anniversary, Edmonds, 49, filed for a divorced from Meghan, 35, after she accused him of “having an affair” with 22-year-old Carly Wilson, one of the family’s four nannies. Meghan was blindsided by the divorce filing and reportedly found out about it by way of the internet.
Both Jim and Carly have denied any such romantic relationship, despite photos being publicized of the two together at a hockey game. Jim claims he was just “trying to do something nice for the girl who just had her boyfriend dumped [sic] her” and said Carly is like his “own child.”
Meghan King Edmonds, a former Real Housewives of Orange County cast member, spoke out Monday about her husband’s continued proclivity to manipulate and control the narrative.
“I have endured prolific controlling by Jim and it isn’t slowing down. Even when I make an unassuming post on Instagram, he hurls insults at me for a battery of made-up indiscretions. I’m sick of the abuse and I won’t engage anymore — and I don’t have to.”
Back in June, AllAboutTheTEA.com published explicit screenshots of text messages allegedly sent by Jim, including photos of his hog and a video of himself masturbating on the same day Meghan gave birth to the couple’s twins. Jim admitted to sending the text messages, but claims the relationship never once progressed physically.
Last week, Meghan claimed that during their marriage, Jim had been “drinking and partying with much younger women, including several of our babysitters.” She also claims that Jim and their nanny Carly once hung out together at a bar until 1:30 a.m. and then proceeded to delete their text message exchanges.
Moral of the story: Never, under any circumstances, hire a hot babysitter. Or marry a dude who’s going to send pictures of him whacking it to a total stranger.
