Jim Edmonds Fires Back at Ex Meghan's Threesome Story: ‘Tired of the Lies’

His side of the story. Jim Edmonds is firing back at his estranged wife, Meghan King Edmonds, after she detailed their alleged threesome with her friend.

“I’m tired of the lies for publicity,” the 49-year-old former St. Louis Cardinals star told Us Weekly exclusively on Monday, January 20, noting he filed for divorce more than 90 days ago to end his allegedly “abusive” and “loveless” marriage. “She has also filed, which pretty much means the marriage is over.”

Meghan, 35, claimed that Jim initiated their plans to have a threesome with a woman that she described as a “friend” during the Monday episode of her “Intimate Knowledge” podcast. The Bravo alum then alleged that Jim is currently in Cabo with the same woman.

“I got invited to a surprise birthday party this weekend for one of my best friends and decided I wanted to bring a date. It has been on the calendar for six months but we are now bringing it up? Convenient,” Jim told Us. “I ran into somebody from my past and thought, ‘Why would I want to spend a weekend with a stranger when I can enjoy myself with somebody that I knew?’ There’s no affair going on here. Strictly a plus-one for the weekend.”

The athlete added that he hasn’t “spoken to this girl in years” until recently.

“The accusations of having an affair are completely false and ridiculous. As far as the threesome goes, there was a few more than one, but initiated by her and only her,” Jim claimed to Us. “In fact, she begged me for more, but they made me uncomfortable. What good could actually come from that in a relationship?”

The former baseball player then alleged that Meghan was the one who “carried on with a couple of these threesome women without me being present.”

He concluded: “Funny that a person would be on a podcast about relationships and intimacy that couldn’t hold one down and was never intimate.”

During Monday’s episode, Meghan broke down in tears over the situation with her ex, with whom she shares Aspen, 3, and twins Hayes and Hart, 19 months.

“We were newlyweds and trying to have fun and he wanted to have a threesome. … I’m shaking right now. I never even told anyone that I had a threesome because it just felt like … something I wasn’t proud of,” Meghan said. “And now this is the woman she’s with? … It’s just so hurtful in so many ways. And I want to share it because I don’t want to feel shame in the decisions that I made.”

The reality TV personalty also alleged that Jim opted to stay in a hotel far away from their family during a recent visit to California, accusing him of not spending enough time with their son Hart, who was diagnosed with “irreversible brain damage” in July 2019.

“It makes me sick that she is using our child as a crutch for the whole world to see and he is responding well and thriving more every day,” Jim told Us. “She even addressed my choice of hotels to stay in. I picked it because it was smack dab in the middle of my whole family in the Newport area. Lastly, she has all three kids in California against my will, but if I was to complain she said she would bash me on the air, which she did anyways.”
