Cuffe Owens and Meghan King have split up after only two months of marriage, according to the former Real Housewives of Orange County star, confirming that the shocking split was true after days of speculation.
The two were wed in whirlwind romance back on Oct. 11, going public with their relationship just two weeks prior. Meghan King wasn’t even rumored to be romantically linked to anyone when she announced her relationship with Joe Biden’s nephew, Cuffe Owens.
Now, just two months after the wedding attended by the President and the First Lady, the couple has broken up without revealing what happened or a reason as to what went wrong.
“I am rattled. This situation is profoundly devastating,” the 37-year-old continued. “This is obviously not what I imagined when I made my vows — and I’m shocked and saddened by the way things turned out. I am moving forward with my children as we privately process our pain and begin to let go of shattered dreams.”
The former RHOC star had three children, Aspen, 5, and twin sons Hart and Hayes, 3, with her previous husband Jim Edmonds, a retired baseball player.
“I thought it was a joke. They’d been dating for about four weeks!” Edmonds told The Daily Mail back when she announced her engagement to Cuffe. “Is she pregnant? But is it even possible to know that just four weeks after the first date?”
Meghan King and Jim Edmonds split in 2019 following allegations that he was unfaithful in their marriage. She was linked to Will Roos, a former friend she started dating back in January, before announcing her relationship with Cuffe.
“At the time I ask for your grave and gentle kindness as I navigate this labyrinth of grief with my family,” Meghan concluded her statement on Instagram.
Cuffe Owens has yet to comment on the end of their speedy romance.
“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,” Meghan told Brides magazine back before the wedding. “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.”
“Our wedding was about two things for us,” she continued. “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.”
The wedding was at the home of Biden’s sister, Valerie Biden Owens and her husband, Jack Owens, in Kennett Square, Pa. Valerie also served as a campaign advisor to the President, and it was her wedding anniversary the weekend of her son Cuffe and Meghan’s wedding.
“We toyed around with an L.A. wedding—at an estate or venue or something—but the truth is it never felt right to either one of us,” Meghan King told Brides. “When we realized that Cuffe’s parents’ wedding anniversary—Oct. 11—was a holiday Monday, we both knew exactly what we were going to do, where we were going to do it, and how we were going to do it. It’s a beautiful thing to see eye-to-eye with each other as we do.”
Meghan King’s marriage to Cuffe Owens was her third, though Cuffe has yet to speak on what went wrong.
