Meghan King Edmonds posted a cryptic message to her Instagram on Friday.
Days after the "Real Housewives of Orange County" star said she and husband Jim Edmonds were working on their marriage following his sexting scandal, she posed a picture of herself with the caption, "So raw."
And the posting comes amid rumors that the pair had split on Friday after Meghan confronted Jim about cheating on her with the family's nanny, according to a source at Us Weekly. Meghan even commented on a post about it with a thumbs up emoji.
On Wednesday, Meghan revealed the pair were attempting couple's therapy.
"We're just still working it day by day. I think after such a breach of trust, it's so hard to rebuild from there, especially [with] so many distractions, like our son's health problems and two other little babies, as well," Meghan told The Daily Dish a day before.
The couple share 2-year-old daughter Aspen and 16-month-old twin boys, Hayes and Hart.
'Today's actually our five-year [wedding] anniversary -- and so we, he's inside at Goodwill [and] we're like, looking for Halloween costumes. And then we're going to counseling. I think that's almost a date for us because we have to talk about us; we have to communicate about things that don't involve [other topics]," she explained to the outlet.
Four months ago, the former MLB player was accused of sending inappropriate texts to another woman when Meghan was pregnant with their twins back in March 2018.

RHOC: Jim Edmonds reportedly had an affair with the family's nanny 💔 According to a source from Us Weekly, Meghan confronted Jim and the nanny, but they both denied the allegations. After a week of fighting, Jim filed for divorce on Friday, October 25, the day after the pair celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary. "The nanny is someone who has worked for them for years and is like family," the source explained. "During the argument, Meghan called the cops, but nothing came of it. Jim didn't put his hands on her. The police chalked it up to a verbal dispute. No arrests were made." The statement made by the Us Weekly source was essentially confirmed by Meghan's recent comment on Instagram (shown above). #realhousewives #rhoc
"I engaged in an inappropriate conversation with this person," Jim told Us Weekly in June. "At no time was there any type of relationship or physical contact. Absolutely none."
At the time, Meghan revealed her side of the story in a post.
"Marriage is hard, we've been through our ups and downs, I've talked about it openly. A relationship takes two but it doesn't take two to cheat," She wrote. "I did nothing wrong, I don't deserve this. I did nothing except be pregnant with our twins and try to have a healthy pregnancy. So what is so broken in him to propel him to do this to me? To us?"
"Marriage is a choice on the bad days. And on the good days marriage is easy and beautiful," she wrote. "No one said it would be easy, I just didn't think it would be this hard," she added.
