Meghan King is firing back at ex-husband Jim Edmonds amid their ongoing custody battle of their three children, Aspen, 5, and twins Hart and Hayes, 4.
The Real Housewives of Orange County alum accused Jim of “coercive control” after he publicly slammed her for leaving their three children with the nanny instead of him. At the same time, she attended a wellness retreat in Arizona, which the former MLB star dubbed a “narcissism retreat.”
“Sad when your ex tells the kids you don’t want to see them when you’re busy then doesn’t let you see them when you’re out of town. Unknown…” Jim wrote on his Instagram Story last week.
Jim’s rep then elaborated on his claims in a statement to Page Six: “Jim thinks it’s really sad the kids are being left with a nanny instead of their father, who changed his Super Bowl plans so he could be with them. Hopefully, Meghan enjoys her narcissism retreat.”
On Wednesday, Meghan took to her Instagram Story to vent about the current drama with her ex-husband after he accused her of keeping him from their children.
“Nobody really talks about coercive control and the after-effects of divorce,” Meghan said while crying. “People say, ‘It’ll get better in time. It’ll get better with time.’ It’s been three years.”
She continued, “When? What time do I have to wait for? The lawyers told me that. My parental coordinator, everyone told me that. It’s not better. It’s worse.”
Meghan noted that she is “sick of verbal and emotional abuse not being classified as ‘abuse.’”
“The courts don’t help protect me, my country club doesn’t protect me, the police don’t enforce, lawyers don’t want to deal with this, so I’m taking matters into my own hands,” she said in response to Jim’s comments on Instagram.
She added, “I want my children to be proud of their mother for not taking this sitting down. Well-behaved women rarely make history, and I plan to be on the right side of it.”
The former Bravo couple split in 2019 after five years of marriage. They finalized their divorce in 2021.RHOC is set to return for season 17 in early 2023.
