Jim Edmonds and Meghan King Edmonds‘ divorce may get ugly, but their child custody arrangement has been put to bed – for now.
The former Real Housewives of Orange County couple have come to an agreement in their custody battle.
According to sources, Jim and Meghan have agreed to share 50/50 joint custody of their three kids. Meghan and Jim are parents to daughter Aspen, 3, and twin boys Hart and Hayes, 17 months.
The deal was worked out by the estranged couple’s lawyers, and while Jim is “thrilled” about the arrangement, Megahn is “not happy.”
“Meghan didn’t want Jim to get equal/joint custody, but that’s exactly what happened,” the insider told In Touch. “She expected him to get less because she’s been saying he can’t handle it, but he’s doing just fine.”
According to the source, Meghan and Jim “have not been in front of a judge yet, but attorneys agreed upon a ‘parenting plan’” that covers some of the upcoming holidays. “She has them this Thanksgiving, and he gets them next year.”
On October 25, Jim shockingly filed for divorce after 5 years of marriage. The news blindsided Meghan as she found out about it from the media.
Things quickly turned ugly between the two. Meghan accused Jim of cheating with their children’s 20-something nanny, Carly Wilson, after he took her to a hockey game. Both Wilson and Jim have denied the allegation.
Two weeks later, Jim called the cops on his wife after a night out with friends. The police questioned the former RHOC star’s ability to care for her three children. The police later left without incident after concluding that Meghan was OK.
Since then, Jim has moved into the dream home he and Meghan have spent the last several years building.
I have a feeling this divorce will get ugly, especially when it comes to money and support.
The Real Housewives of Orange County airs Tuesdays at 9 pm EST on Bravo.
