Meghan King Edmonds Was Married Once Before To Ex-Husband Brad McDill

Meghan King Edmonds has always been vocal about her now-estranged husband Jim Edmonds' failed marriages. He was married twice before Meghan. Now, it's been revealed that Meghan has one (soon-to-be two) failed marriages of her own. According to insiders, Meghan hates talking about her early failed marriage — but she may have no choice now in the war of words between her and Jim. The news is officially out. A source told Radar: “[Meghan] has no problem talking on camera or to anyone for that matter about her current husband Jim’s failed marriages but she shies away from talking about her own." So ... who is Meghan King Edmonds' first husband?

1. It was in her 20s

Meghan, who is originally from St. Louis, married a lawyer named Brad McDill in 2007 when she was 22. She had just graduated from the University of Mississippi when they tied the knot in July 2007. They separated on October 14, 2011, according to court documents obtained by Radar. The reason cited was the typical irreconcilable differences. Meghan described their split after four years as “very amicable and easy.” Their divorce was final on November 30, 2011.

2. Moving on

After her divorce, she changed her name back to her maiden name of Meghan O'Toole King. Divorce papers reveal she walked away with her personal belongings, money from a joint checking account and a 2004 Nissan Murano. McDill left the marriage with his belongings, his bank accounts, his work bonus for 2011 and a 2005 Ford F-150. The former couple also split the proceeds from the sale of their $225,000 house.

3. So, who is he?

According to a LinkedIn profile that appears to belong to Meghan King Edmonds' ex-husband, Brad McDill lives in Jackson, Mississippi and is a partner in the law firm Hubbard Mitchell Williams & Strain, PLLC. Beforethat, from March 2009 to December 2011, he was a partner at the law firm King Krehbiel and Hellmich, LLC. There's no word on whether the King in that firm name is a relative of Meghan's. The exit date, however, matches up with their divorce being final. McDill went to Mississippi State University for his Bachelor's degree and the University of Mississippi for his JD.

4. Meghan's second husband, Jim Edmonds, filed for divorce

Jim Edmonds filed for divorce from Meghan King Edmonds, 35, on Friday, October 25, according to Us. Friday was the day after their fifth wedding anniversary. Meghan took to social media Friday evening and posted a makeup-free selfie and captioned it, "So raw." She then went on to accuse her estranged husband of having an affair with their 22-year-old nanny.

5. The nanny

Right now, Jim Edmonds is fighting off allegations that he cheated on Meghan with their nanny, Carly Wilson. For what it's worth, Jim, 49, denied the claims and called them "disgusting and irresponsible."  He took to Instagram to post, in part: "It’s one thing to be accused of something. It’s another thing to be so negligent and so careless, and ruin the lives of innocent young people,” the former MLB player wrote. “I did not sleep with our nanny. She’s not just a nanny, she is someone that we brought into our house and promised to protect and look after while she was in our home. We have been treating and raising this young girl like she is our own child!” Sometime on Monday, October 28th, after this article was written Jim Edmonds made his Instagram account private.
