Meghan King Granted Restraining Order Against Ex Jim Edmonds Amid Abuse Allegations

Meghan King’s marriage to Jim Edmonds may be over, but their family drama continues.

The Real Housewives of Orange County alum was granted a restraining order against her ex-husband after she accused him of alleged abuse against her.

Per Page Six, Missouri court records show the case is labeled as “adult abuse [without] stalking.”

On Thursday, a spokesperson for the St. Louis County Court told the gossip outlet that documents about the case are confidential due to the  “high-security level” of the parties involved.

TMZ reports that Meghan alleges that her ex-husband showed “frequent and consistent verbal abuse” against her via text message and the co-parenting app Family Wizard.

According to sources, the arguments revolved around co-parenting issues over their three children. The former couple shares 5-year-old daughter Aspen and 4-year-old twin boys Hart and Hayes.

Jim’s rep Steve Honig tells TMZ: “This request for an order of protection is completely baseless and furthermore makes an absolute mockery of the pain suffered by the millions of women in this country who are legitimate victims of abuse.”

A hearing is scheduled for September 19, which is when a judge will decide if the restraining order will be made permanent.

Meghan and Jim married in October 2014. They split in October 2019 after five years of marriage. The former reality TV couple’s divorce was finalized in May 2021.

RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
