The messy breakup of Jim Edmonds and “Real Housewives of Orange County” star Megan King has been well documented as the two have traded barbs publicly and via lawyers and spokespersons. This week, Edmonds seemed to use his Instagram Story to further insult his ex. While he never mentioned King by name, he said his string of messages were about “past relationships.”
One meme he shared read, “A narcissist will hurt you and hurt you again and again, waiting for the moment that you retaliate. Just so they can play the victim.”
Another said, “Those who are the greatest threat to the narcissist will be made out to be the most vilest of monsters.”
Another message said that a narcissist will make “nasty, cruel and insensitive” remarks that are not factual.
Edmonds later said, “Just something that I found this morning searching the Internet. Thought that I would share with you some of you who have been asking me about past relationships.”
The former baseball star has done his best to portray himself as the victim after King alleged he had an affair with their nanny, which led to their separation.
“I was going through hell ending a loveless and abusive relationship,” Edmonds wrote on Instagram a month ago while praising his new girlfriend Kortnie O’Connor. “The lies and accusations that followed the breakup only put me deeper into a funk. Along came this beautiful woman by chance, who lit up my world and brought me back to life. I’m very grateful for my amazing friends, children and this amazing woman for making me a better person and father.”
For her part, King has moved on from Edmonds and is now dating Christian Schauf, who is the CEO of Uncharted Supply Company and is based in Park City, Utah. He recently revealed that they two met on a dating app, and he had no clue that she was a famous Bravo star. Schauf said he was attracted to her from the start for both her appearance and her admirable parenting.
“This is a 35-year-old woman with three kids under the age of 3 with an ex who is not that easy to deal with — and that is putting it in the nicest way possible — and then having every move you make played out at the scale she does, for her to continue to be positive and push ahead and have goals, and not let it overwhelm her … it’s really impressive to me. Like, it’s really admirable. I really like that about her,” Schauf said.
