AceShowbiz - Meghan King Edmonds' estranged husband Jim Edmonds has broken his silence, a day after he filed for divorce from the reality TV star. The former Major League Baseball player appears to shade his estranged wife for spreading the affair rumors.
In a statement to Us Weekly, the Fox Sports broadcaster denies the cheating allegations, calling them "irresponsible and hurtful." He says, "It's dangerous, irresponsible and hurtful to all to allow a rumor to be spread to the world because of insecurities."
Earlier on Saturday, October 26, Jim posted a cryptic post that seemed to be also aimed at Meghan. "No one can throw a bigger tantrum than a narcissist whose [sic] losing control of someone else's mind," he wrote on Instagram Stories.
He also shared an illustration of a woman angrily pointing a finger at a man with the words False Accusations Allegations at the bottom, before setting his account to private.
Jim filed for divorce from Meghan on Friday, October 25, a day after their fifth wedding anniversary. The couple reportedly had been fighting a lot before the divorce filing, with the latest argument reportedly happening after "he went to a recent hockey game and she began interrogating him about who he went with."
Meghan accused her husband of cheating on her with Carly Wilson, one of their four nannies. "The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family," a source told Us Weekly. "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."
Carly has denied she had an affair with Jim, responding to a question asked by a commenter on Instagram as saying, "the allegations are completely false."
On Saturday, the former "The Real Housewives of Orange County" star's mom called cops after Jim went to their house to pick up some clothes while Meghan was not home. "The cops showed up and asked them what was going on. Jim said it was his house and he was getting his clothes as they told him to, when Meghan wasn't there," a source told the site. "The police made Meghan's mom leave."
The couple's split came months after Jim was caught sexting another woman. The 49-year-old former athlete, however, denied that he had any physical contact with his alleged mistress.
