Cheating Claims, Separation & IVF: Meghan & Jim Edmonds' Marriage Scandals Exposed
Meghan King Edmonds and husband Jim are finally headed to divorce court after a slew of trouble in their five-year marriage.
As RadarOnline.com reported, Jim, 49, filed for divorce from the former The Real Housewives of Orange County star, 35, on Friday, October 25, the day after the two marked their fifth wedding anniversary.
According to Us Weekly, the Edmonds' union is ending amid an explosive supposed last straw.
A source told the publication that Meghan has accused the ex-baseball player of being unfaithful to her with the family nanny.
Insiders said Meghan claimed Jim was "having an affair" with the woman.
Us has reported that an insider has claimed that Meghan confronted her ex-athlete spouse and the nanny, but they both denied the allegations.
According to Us Weekly, Jim filed for divorce after she called the police on him during an argument.
“Meghan and Jim have been fighting,” one source told the outlet. “He went to a hockey game and she accused him of being there with someone that he shouldn’t have been.”
The latest news comes after the reality TV wife exposed other trouble in her marriage, both on-screen and off.
Before nannygate, Jim allegedly also had conversations with a so-called "baseball madame," as All About Tea first reported.
The site claimed Jim had cheated on his second wife, Allison, with the woman, and then reconnected with her when Meghan was pregnant with their twins Hart and Hayes.
Jim denied he had a physical relationship with the woman, but the site published screenshots of their texts, that showed sexually explicit online exchanges with her.
On June 13, Jim admitted to Us Weekly, "Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person. At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none. This is someone trying to profit from my name. I am aware she has done this to others in the past."
Meghan and Jim's blended family caused issues, as she has feuded with her stepchildren.
Edmonds had two daughters with his first wife, Lee Ann Horton, whom he divorced (and who died in 2015). The former St. Louis Cardinal and second wife Allison Jayne Raski were married from 2008 to 2014 and had two children together.
Meghan had to undergo IVF to conceive her three children with Jim, and she claimed that he kept his distance from the painful process.
Jim even skipped Meghan's baby shower!
Their son Hart's brain damage diagnosis also affected the two during their shaky marriage.

Cheating Close To Home?
A shocking Us Weekly article claimed that Meghan has accused Jim of cheating on her with the family's nanny. Both her husband and the employee have reportedly denied it.
Hit By Infidelity?
Meghan has charged the former baseball hunk of being unfaithful and an Us Weekly source said, "The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family.”
Was Meghan and Jim's recent fight over the family nanny? Her identity has not yet been exposed and the Edmonds family reportedly employs four nannies and a live-in au pair. The cops were reportedly called amid the couple's argument.
This summer, Meghan disclosed the shocking news that one of her and Jim's twin sons, Hart, 16 months, has "irreversible brain damage." He was diagnosed during his parents' marriage implosion.
An ill child can put any marriage under extra pressure, and Meghan told fans son Hart had to undergo daily treatment in a hyperbaric chamber. She's said that Hart has “minor Periventricular Leukomalacia on both sides of his brain” and is “at risk for being diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy.”
Jim was first accused of cheating on his wife with a baseball madame. “I only blame my husband for his actions: he made the choice to betray my trust and jeopardize our marriage,” Meghan told Us at the time. “His recklessness also allowed this woman to profit from my heartbreak."
Jim admitted to Us on June 13 that he had a “lapse in judgment,” but the former St. Louis Cardinals star maintained that her "never touched" another woman during his marriage to Meghan. Later, the retired baseball player said that there was no "type of relationship or physical contact" between him and his wife anymore!
Although Jim denied having a physical relationship with the "baseball Annie," All About the Tea published screenshots of their texts, https://radaronline.com/photos/meghan-king-edmonds-admits-husband-cheated-jim-edmonds-rhoc/ some of which included photos of his penis. The site also claimed Jim sent the woman a video of him touching himself on the same day Meghan gave birth to their twins.

Meghan had to undergo IVF to have kids with Jim because he'd had a vasectomy after having children with his previous wives. According to Meghan in her Bravo blog at the time, “It is really frustrating to me that Jimmy doesn’t act more interested in the IVF process, especially considering that it has consumed my life.”
Struggle For Kids
Jim had to tend to his baseball duties at the time Meghan was having IVF, frustrating the blonde beauty. "I was on a lot of hormones and was very emotional," Meghan explained about bad marriage communication at the time. "Sometimes a lot of information is too much information for him!”
Meghan has accused Jim of being distant and in 2016, he skipped her baby shower.
Meghan has become notorious for publicly bashing Lauren, Hayley, Landon and Sutton--Jim's kids by his previous marriages.
During her marriage, Meghan even has had trouble with her own biological daughter by Jim named Aspen. The reality TV blonde whined about the girl when she was only nine months old, “My hormones did not do me any favors. I have the emotional burden of a newborn, so I don’t want or need the emotional burden of drama, but apparently there was no avoiding it.”
“My relationship with Hayley right now is, it’s not in a great spot,” Meghan revealed about her stepdaughter in 2016. “She’s 18, and she moved out of our house, and, she knows everything and wants everything.” Jim's daughters didn't appear to like Meghan when they were on RHOC's cameras.
Despite her complaints about daughter Aspen, Meghan previously said she employed an around-the-clock nanny.
Too Far Apart
While she was pregnant with their girl Aspen in 2016, Jim was usually nowhere to be found due to his work commitments.
When Meghan and Jim's divorce is final, it will make her a two-time marriage loser. RadarOnline.com previously reported that she had wed and then divorced a young attorney named Brad McDill. She'd kept that union a secret from fans.
Needy While Pregnant
Meghan is now fit, but she dissed Jim on camera for ignoring her medical problems involved with the IVF appointments.
