It was alleged in January by his ex-wife King, that she, Edmonds and O’Connor had a threesome together, and she chose former Playboy model O’Connor because she was a ‘friend’ and it felt ‘comfortable.’
‘This girl I thought was my friend,’ King claimed in a podcast in January, adding that it was ‘fun’ and she ‘wanted to do things for my husband.’
Edmonds, who played most of his stellar baseball career with the Anaheim Angels and St. Louis Cardinals, went on to shared that O’Connor showed up in his life ‘just at the right time.’
‘Amazing that her taking a chance on a plus one weekend to Mexico pulled me out of my hole and changed my life forever,’ he explained.
It turns out the father of five was not in a good place amid all the drama with his now ex-wife.

It’s at this point that Edmonds shared some deep feelings about King.
‘I was going through hell ending a loveless and abusive relationship. The lies and accusations that followed the breakup only put me deeper into a funk,’ he wrote with obvious emotion.
