We’re just gonna start off by saying we are very sorry to all the Jim Edmonds and Meghan King Edmonds true believers.
We hate to break this to all the folks out there who thought these two would fight through their issues and find eternal happiness together.
Because, SPOILER ALERT, they will not.
In case this wasn’t obvious based on the recent statements made by the former Major League Baseball player and former Real Housewife of Orange County, consider the following:
Jim has now moved out.
On his Instagram page this weekend, Jim showed off his children playing around in his new residence – and gave a mini-tour of the home – amid his split from Meghan.
Meghan and Jim are the parents of two-year-old daughter Aspen and 17-month-old twins, Hayes and Hart.
The latter is also dad to Sutton and Landon Edmonds, his two older kids who he shares with his ex-wife Allison Edmonds.
In one clip from his father’s social media page, Hayes looks around his new playroom in awe while big sister, Aspen, runs over to grab some toys.
“Hayes doesn’t know what to do,” Jim captioned the footage.
He also filmed the entire family as they gather around to look at a Jack-in-the-box toy.
And in another clip, Aspen throws baseballs just like her dad in what appears to be an in-house baseball training facility.
Jim, of course, filed for divorce from Meghan on October 25.
This wasn’t wholly unexpected, consideirng Jim admitted to (at minimum) sexting with another woman during the couple’s five-year marriage.
But the Internet then exploded with chatter that Jim had been sleeping with the family’s nanny, a 22-year old woman named Carly Wilson.
The ex-outfielder strongly denied this rumor, trashing Meghan for playing any role at all in spreading it around in public.
In an exclusive statement to Us weekly, Jim called the claims, “dangerous, irresponsible and hurtful.”
He also addressed the controversy in an Instagram post on October 28, writing:
“It’s one thing to be accused of something. It’s another thing to be so negligent and so careless, and ruin the lives of innocent young people."
In her own blog entry later on, however, Meghan admitted that Jim and Carly probably never had sex… but did state that she thought the two had an inappropriate relationship.
"I am broken," she added at the time.
“I have endured prolific controlling by Jim and it isn’t slowing down,” the ex-Bravo star said on November 4. “
She added back then:
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.”
Just when everything appeared to have calmed down between the pair, however, Jim called the cops on Meghan just this week and accused her of being a neglient parent.
