The former MLB player, 48, told US Weekly that he never cheated on his wife, 34, but did admit to a mistake he made.
“Regrettably, I had a lapse in judgment. I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person,” Jim told US Weekly. “At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none. This is someone trying to profit from my name. I am aware she has done this to others in the past.”
He continued in the statement, “Clearly, I made a very poor decision to expose myself and my family to this type of person. For this, I am truly sorry and sought forgiveness from my wife. I’m outraged over the intent to ruin my family and intend to take legal action. We were never having any problems in our marriage. My attorney is in possession of documents wherein this person has admitted fabricating large portions of her ‘story.’”
On Thursday, a source alleged to AllAboutTheTea that Jim participated in infidelity twice, the first time during his marriage to second wife, Allison Raski, with a woman the source names as Jenn, a.k.a “baseball madame.”‘
The outlet also claimed that Jim rekindled his romance with Jenn during his marriage to Meghan, at the point when she was pregnant with their now 1-year-old twin sons, Hart and Hayes.
“Jim sent Jenn a DM on Instagram in March ,” the source told the outlet. “She had not heard from him in years. Their friendship sparked again and they started communicating on a regular basis. Their communications quickly turned from friendly to dirty texting.”
The source provided screenshots of text messages between Jim and his mistress, which allegedly includes d–– picks and a video of the former pro-baseball player masturbating on the same day Meghan gave birth to their twins.
AllAboutTheTea’s source also claimed that Meghan discovered the ongoing affair, and confronted her husband, followed by going “berserk” on the mistress. The outlet provided a voicemail, which features the Bravo star allegedly calling the mistress and leaving a “threatening” voicemail.
Meghan and Jim — who also share daughter Aspen, 2 — married in October 2014, and have “been through it,” as Meghan noted in a recent Instagram picture celebrating their four-year marriage.
“Happy fourth anniversary to my husband who supports me in everything I do (especially now with my insane schedule of all my new projects), loves me so deeply, and provides for our family and me,” she captioned three photos of the seemingly happy couple.
“We’ve been through more in four years of marriage than most do in 20 and it’s only made us stronger,” continued Meghan, who departed from RHOC ahead of the most recent season after three years on the series.
She concluded, “Here’s to my better half, I love you.”
