In a recent turn of events, King faced alleged verbal abuse from her ex-husband. As a result, she requested a temporary restraining order against him in June. Edmonds and King interact and co-parent via the Our Family Wizard app in accordance with court instructions. When Edmonds allegedly verbally abused King via the app, Meghan took a stringent step.

The conflict between Edwards and King, who have a daughter named Aspen and twin boys named Hart and Hayes, reportedly revolved around co-parenting concerns.

Steve Honig, Edmonds' representative, has chosen to speak up about the restraining order filed by Meghan King.

Per TMZ, Honig called King's filing "baseless" and a "mockery of pain."

"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.”

The decision over the duration of the restraining order will be made public at a hearing on September 19.
