Meghan King does background checks on ‘every single person’ she dates as she tries to find love after failed marriages to Joe Biden’s nephew Cuffe Biden Owens and baseball vet Jim Edmonds
When it comes to romance, Meghan King is learning from her past.
The thrice-married former Real Housewives of Orange County star, 38, shared that before she says ‘I do’ to a date, she looks into the guy’s history.
Speaking on the True Crime Reality podcast, the reality star told host Caelynn Miller-Keyes, ‘I am not kidding, I do background checks on every single person I date.’
Her ex-husbands include baseball vet Jim Edmonds and President Joe Biden‘s nephew Cuffe Biden Owens.

Caelynn replied, ‘You do? Smart.’
The concern over safety began long before Meghan was a member of the Real Housewives Of Orange County cast.
Meghan was invited to the show to talk about a cat-fishing incident involving her brother, RJ, 30, who is now a model in New York.
According to Meghan, RJ was only about 16 when someone created a fake Facebook account for her brother, and the investigation found that fake accounts had also been created for her and other members in her family.

Avatar: The reality star said a young woman who had not come out as a lesbian used a picture of her brother RJ as an avatar to talk to other girls on the social media site when he was about 16. RJ has since gone on to become an in-demand model in New York
It turned out to be a teen who had not come out as a lesbian and was using RJ’s face as an avatar to chat with girls on the website.
The King family reached out to law enforcement for several years, but no laws were in place to prevent the perpetrator from running the accounts.
The story ended up being the first episode on the MTV reality show Catfish, but there was a condition – the woman who created the fake accounts had to stop stalking Meghan’s family.
‘It was strange for our family to even talk about because it left us very uneasy. We didn’t have a sense of safety when that happened and there wasn’t anything we could do.’
Privacy: Meghan’s third marriage to Cuffe Biden Owens, 43 lasted less than a year. The influencer says she’s ‘done putting people in the public eye, putting people on my Instagram. I’m done with that’
Meghan is mom to five-year-old Aspen and four-year-old twins Hayes and Hart with ex-husband Jim Edmonds, 52.
When it comes to people reaching out online, she wants them to verify it’s her.
‘I have a blue check mark next to my name, so if anybody believes they’re talking to Meghan King and there’s no blue check mark next to the name, then it’s not really Meghan King.’
The influencer has revealed on her own Intimate Knowledge podcast that she is currently dating a friend turned boyfriend, whom she refers to as Kenny for privacy reasons, and that all is going well.
Verify: Meghan shares three kids with ex Jim Edmonds, 52,; Aspen, five, and four-year-old twins Hayes and Hart. She says anyone who thinks they’re talking to her online should look for verification, ‘I have a blue check mark next to my name’
‘I’ve kept you all up to date on my relationship with Kenny, which is now shockingly, been an entire month. And that’s really long for me.’ she continued, ‘That’s like a year in Meg years as far as relationships go because it takes me no time at all to get into them and I’m very quick in getting out of them. So a month is like a long time.’
She also contended that after her brief marriage to third husband, Cuffe Biden Owens, 43 – whose uncle is President Joe Biden – she is going to keep her relationships private.
‘After my whirlwind marriage and annulment, I told myself, “I’m done putting people in the public eye, putting people on my Instagram. I’m done with that.”‘
