Jim Edmonds Slammed his Ex-Wife While Praising his New Girlfriend

Real Housewives Of Orange County stars Meghan King and Jim Edmonds went through a brutal split in October 2019 following a sexting scandal that rocked their relationship.

Now, as they share custody of their three young children, the retired professional baseball player, has taken to Instagram and slammed his ex-wife, while praising his new girlfriend Kortnie O'Connor for helping him realize his better self again.

'If it wasn't for this girl, I don't think I would be here right now,' he began in the caption of a series of photos of the couple.

'I was in such a dark place; one that I didn't think could happen to me,' the former acclaimed outfielder confessed.

It's at this point that Edmonds shared some deep feelings about King.

'I was going through hell ending a loveless and abusive relationship. The lies and accusations that followed the breakup only put me deeper into a funk,' he wrote with obvious emotion.

Edmonds, who played most of his stellar baseball career with the Anaheim Angels and St. Louis Cardinals, went on to shared that O'Connor showed up in his life 'just at the right time.'

Edmonds filed for divorce last October, one day after their fifth wedding anniversary.

It came about four months after a sexting scandal, where King discovered her husband had shared inappropriate messages with another woman.

Edmonds admitted her had a 'lapse in judgement' but denied he had any kind of physical contact or affair with the woman.

The former couple are co-parenting daughter Aspen, three, and twins boys Hart and Hayes, two.
