People Editorial Guidelines Published on May 1, 2020 02:52 PM Share Tweet Pin Email There appears to be no love lost between exes Jim Edmonds and Meghan King Edmonds. After the Real Housewives of Orange County alum, 35, reportedly alleged that the former MLB star's child support "barely pays for groceries for my tribe," Jim fired back in a statement via his rep. “We’re not going to give numbers because it’s no one’s business, but if what Jim is giving to Meghan each month for child support doesn’t cover her groceries, she must be getting her eggs from Fabergé," Jim's publicist Steve Honig tells PEOPLE in a statement. “Jim also pays every single bill for both of her homes, all the medical bills and practically every other expense related to the kids and the houses. Jim continually goes above and beyond what he is required to do. Meghan’s comments are an insult to all the single mothers who are genuinely struggling financially and working multiple jobs to make ends meet," Hong continues. “Someone also needs to tell Meghan that child support is not for gold and baubles."
