Police questioned Meghan’s ability to care for her three children, Aspen, 2, and 17-month-old twins Hayes and Hart, after arriving home from a night out with friends on Wednesday, November 6.
“Meghan came home from being out with friends, and she had a couple glasses of wine. It was the first time Jim stayed at her house and put the kids to sleep since he filed for divorce, so she met up with friends. She didn’t drive,” a source told Us Weekly.
The source continued, “She was washing her face when she heard someone knock around 10:30 p.m. An officer was there with Jim and told her Jim said he was worried she couldn’t care for [their] kids.”
According to an eyewitness, the police asked the former Real Housewives of Orange County star if she “comfortable and capable of taking care” of her three kids, which Jim had spent the night watching.
“Of course, yes!” Meghan replied. “In your personal opinion, do you think that I am in any way incapable of taking care of my three little baby children who are totally desperate for a parent?”
The police officer repeatedly told the former OC Housewife that he does not “know” her. He then concluded that she okay to care for her three children.
“Right now, my opinion is is that you are fit enough to take care of your children tonight, and that’s all that I’m concerned with,” the officer said.
As police questioned Meghan, Jim stood outside of the former couple’s home. That same night Jim also accused Meghan of cheating on him with the man who brought her home.
An additional source says Jim “offered to sleep on the couch for the night, and Meghan rejected that offer.”
“Meghan was appalled,” an insider revealed. “She has never been anything short of a fantastic mother.” She thinks her estranged husband was attempting to get back at her, the insider added, but ultimately realized he made a bad decision.
Jim confirmed to Us Weekly that he did call the police but says he only did it out of concern.
”I did not call the police on my wife,” he said. “I called the police to protect the situation and make sure there were no further issues.”
“Meghan had never been so humiliated in her life,” a source adds.
This latest drama comes after the media firestorm that erupted when following the news and Jim and Meghan’s split.
On October 25th, Jim filed for divorce from Meghan after 5-years of marriage. This move came after Meghan privately accused Jim and their nanny, Carly Wilson, of having an affair. Both Jim and Carly have denied this accusation.
The Real Housewives of Orange County air Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
Thoughts on this all? Do you think Jim is trying to make Meghan look like an unfit mother?
