AceShowbiz - Jim Edmonds has broken his silence on his ex Meghan King's marriage to Cuffe Biden Owens. In a new interview, the former MLB player revealed that he didn't see it coming and thought that the reality TV star couldn't be serious about it when she informed him.
"She called me to tell me she was getting married," Jim told the Daily Mail in an interview which was published on Monday, October 18. "It was the first I heard anything about it. I thought it was a joke-they'd been dating for about four weeks!"
The former athlete admitted that he wondered if "The Real Housewives of Orange County" alum decided to get married the son of Valerie Biden because she's pregnant. "But is it even possible to know that just four weeks after the first date?" he went on to question his own speculation.
In the interview, he was also asked about their public split. Of the matter, Jim said, "I have no interest in getting dragged back into the negative narrative she's pushed and all the false information she's put out there. It's why we've really kept our opinions to ourselves on this."
He also further distanced himself from Meghan, with whom he shares three children together, by calling her a "stranger." He said, "Really I have no emotion on her wedding one way or another. It's like a stranger getting married. I have no connection to her."
Meghan and Cuffe went Instagram official on September 25. The couple got married in an intimate ceremony in Pennsylvania on October 11. She then gushed over the nephew of President Joe Biden in an interview with Brides. "We connected on a dating app, texted for a day or two, then spent five straight hours on the phone the first time we spoke," the Bravo alum explained.
"By the time that call ended, Cuffe was booked and packed for a flight [from Los Angeles] to St. Louis that took off in about eight hours. Within a week, we were back on the East Coast, meeting his family, and starting to plan our future together. We didn't leave each other's side for weeks," she added.
