The problems between former The Real Housewives of Orange County star Meghan King and her ex-husband Jim Edmonds have taken a new turn. This comes following reports that Meghan obtained a restraining order against Jim after he allegedly abused her. The restraining order could even become permanent if the court grants it.

Find out what drama is happening between the former lovebirds below.

Why The Restraining Order?

Meghan claims in the legal document that Jim verbally abused her repeatedly and consistently via text and the co-parenting app, Family Wizard.

The ex-couple shares a 5-year-old daughter Aspen and 4-year-old twin sons, Hart and Hayes. While it is still unclear what Jim said to his ex-wife, sources believe it may have to do with the fact that they have shared custody of their children. And more specifically, it may be related to their pick-up and drop-off schedule, which Meghan believes Jim hasn't followed.

Most recently, Jim also accused the mom of three of endangering their kids after learning she was partying in Miami. Consequently, there is a considerable possibility that Meghan filed a restraining order against him because of their kids.

Jim Maintains His Innocence

The former baseball star's representative addressed the accusations against his client in a statement to TMZ.

"This request for an order of protection is completely baseless and furthermore makes an absolute mockery of the pain suffered by the millions of women in this country who are legitimate victims of abuse," Steve Honig said about the filing.

Nevertheless, a hearing to decide whether or not to make the restraining order permanent has been scheduled for later this month.

Meghan Exited 'RHOC' Because Of Family

It's pretty unfortunate that the reality TV star, who left The Real Housewives of Orange County to concentrate on her family, now has to deal with even more family problems.

"Today is a bittersweet day for me. After three seasons of the rollercoaster that is The Real Housewives of Orange County, I've decided to hang up my OC Housewife hat," she wrote on her blog in 2018.

It's Been A Long Time Coming

The RHOC alum, 37, had previously accused Jim, a former MLB player, of cheating on her multiple times throughout their marriage. However, he denied the accusations.

Meghan also admitted that since they had broken up, her relationship with him had only become worse and detrimental to their children. 

"It's horrible," the former reality star said on Caroline Stanbury's "Divorced Not Dead" podcast in July, weeks after the restraining order filing. "It's so detrimental for the kids and for us as individuals. It sucks."

One can only hope that the former couple works out their differences amicably for the benefit of their children, who should be kept in the dark about everything between their parents.
