Meghan King Edmonds And Jim Edmonds’ Custody Battle Gets Messier Due To COVID-19 Pandemic, Jim And Meghan Release Statements!

The coronavirus pandemic is making Jim Edmonds and Meghan King Edmonds’ custody battle even more complicated. According to Us Weekly, both of them aren’t pleased with how much the other has been traveling.

According to sources, Meghan had three-year-old daughter Aspen and 23-month-old twin boys Hayes and Hart in her care in Los Angeles until recently. The former couple’s three kids are now in St. Louis with Jim as the Real Housewives of Orange County alum spends time in Utah with her new boyfriend Christian Schauf.

“Jim is happy and relieved to have Aspen, Hayes and Hart back with him in St. Louis. Meghan’s social media and blog posts the past few weeks have been somewhat distressing and Jim was a bit concerned about her state of mind,” a rep for the former MLB star told Us Weekly. “Just to be clear, Jim has not traveled at all during the pandemic; he was in Nashville right before the situation escalated and has stayed home ever since. As happy as Jim is to have the kids home, he did not require Meghan to travel during this shutdown and bring them back. He would never do anything to put any of his children at risk.”

Sources reveal that the former St. Louis Cardinals star — who tested positive for COVID-19 in April — worries about his estranged wife’s travel, while a friend of Meghan told the publication that she is just as concerned about his recent choices over his relationship with new girlfriend Kortnie O’Connor.

“Meghan took every precaution to spend time with someone who makes her happy, after taking care of her kids for nine weeks in a row, and after being cheated on, left, and finding out via the media that Jim filed for divorce, then immediately moved on with a former friend and moved her into the home Meghan built,” the friend claimed Meghan tried to work with Jim on the flying arrangements. “She offered to fly [with the kids] back to St. Louis on a private plane and pay for half of it and he declined. She offered to keep them in California longer but Jim said no. Meghan also offered to get their kids tested for antibodies but Jim declined that too.”

Jim’s rep, meanwhile, told Us Weekly that he “didn’t think it would serve any purpose” to have the kids tested: “He felt there was no reason to put the kids at risk by bringing them to a hospital or testing facility considering they had absolutely no symptoms and were fine.” The athlete’s rep added that Meghan “took the kids to Los Angeles without Jim’s knowledge or consent,” so for “her to demand that Jim send a private jet to pick them up is a bit much.”

Meghan’s rep told Us Weekly: “Meghan was within her rights to take the kids to California and to St. Louis and Jim asked that she bring them to St. Louis.”

Meghan's friend adds that the former RHOC star's new boyfriend Christian has tested negative for coronavirus. “Christian has been tested twice for coronavirus and is negative,” Meghan’s friend told the publication. “He could not be better prepared for this pandemic. He is an expert in this exact catastrophic event.”

In October 2019, the former professional baseball player and the former Bravo reality star called it quits after five years of marriage. The former RHOC star accused her then-husband of being unfaithful with their nanny, which both Jim and the caretaker denied.

Earlier this month, Jim confirmed he was in a relationship with Kortnie O’Connor. The pair have been quarantined together while the former St. Louis Cardinals player continued to recover from his battle with COVID-19. Before Jim went public with his new relationship, his estranged wife claimed that O’Connor had a threesome with them during their marriage.

Earlier this week, it was confirmed that Meghan is in a new relationship as she's dating Christian Schauf, who is a podcaster and CEO of an emergency survival kit company in Park City, Utah.
