Meghan King's Ex Says He Found Out About Son's Diagnosis Through Her Social Media Post

Jim Edmonds is slamming his estranged wife Meghan King after she revealed in a social media post that their son, Hart, has cerebral palsy.

The former baseball player claims that Meghan chose to share the news on social media first before even telling him about Hart‘s diagnosis.

Jim‘s rep, Steve Honig, shared with The Blast that he was “unaware of any such diagnosis and, if it is even true, it is completely unconscionable and absolutely disgraceful that Meghan would announce this on social media without discussing it with him first.”

Meghan, who previously starred on The Real Housewives of Orange County, took to social media earlier this week and shared Hart‘s diagnosis on World Cerebral Palsy Day.

“All the doctors and therapists told me I was just being an overly cautious mother. I thought I was losing my mind, but I insisted upon an MRI,” she wrote on her official website. “That MRI confirmed a diagnosis of Periventricular Leukomalacia or PVL which is brain death caused by lack of oxygen. This is often a precursor diagnosis to Cerebral Palsy.”

Meghan added that Hart was “diagnosed with Hypotonic Cerebral Palsy” and she “was expecting this diagnosis. Even though he’s the same kid I expected it to hit me hard. But it didn’t. It didn’t hit me hard at all. In fact I felt relieved.”

Previously, Meghan opened up about Hart‘s “irreversible brain damage”.

Late late year, Jim and Meghan announced their split after five years of marriage.
