‘Real Housewives’ Star Meghan King Divorcing Biden Nephew Cuffe Owens After 2 Months
Reality TV star Meghan King has confirmed that she and her husband Cuffe Owens are divorcing. The two have been married for two and a half months.
“I am rattled. This situation is profoundly devastating,” wrote King on her Instagram story. “This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows—and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out.”
King, 34, rose to fame when she appeared on the reality show, Resale Royalty. She later appeared on an episode of Say Yes to the Dress, and became a regular on seasons 10 and 11 of The Real Housewives of Orange County as a housewife.
King married Owens, Los Angeles-based attorney and nephew of President Joe Biden, on Oct. 11. They reportedly had a “small, family wedding” at Owens’ family’s home in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania. Biden and his wife, Dr. Jill Biden, attended the wedding.
“Our wedding was about two things for us,” King said in an interview at the time. “Our love for and commitment to each other, and our family—each of our families, and the new very large and very tight family that we were bonding together by getting married. That’s it.”
In the same interview, King described the timeline of the relationship. She explained, “We connected on a dating app, texted for a day or two, then spent five straight hours on the phone the first time we spoke. By the time that call ended, Cuffe was booked and packed for a flight to St. Louis that took off in about eight hours. Within a week, we were back on the East Coast, meeting his family, and starting to plan our future together. We didn’t leave each other’s side for weeks.”
The couple first announced their relationship two weeks before the wedding. King posted a photograph of her and Owens, calling Owens “my man” in the caption.
This was King’s third marriage. Before Owens, King had been married to lawyer Brad McDill from 2007 to 2011. She was married to former baseball player Jim Edmonds from 2014 to 2019. With Edmunds, she had three children, five-year-old daughter Aspen and three-and-a-half-year-old sons Hart and Hayes.
In the Instagram post about her divorce from Owens, King added, “I am moving forward with my children as we privately process our pain and begin to let go of shattered dreams. At the time I ask for your grave and gentle kindness as I navigate this labyrinth of grief with my family.”
