Jim Edmonds is going through a PR nightmare and is certainly going through hell at home after he was exposed for having an extra marital affair with a woman known as the “baseball madame.” She had already text messages and nude pics he had sent, but Edmonds had categorically denied having sexual relations with that woman.
The FOX Sports Midwest announcer may have admitted to his dirty deeds, but he refused to state it went any further than text messages. Well, the woman has now been revealed as 34-year-old Jennifer Villegas and she has exposed to the website All About The Tea that the two had a consensual sexual relationship and she would take a lie detector test to prove herself.
“She’s 34 years-old, works in the hospitality industry, and tells AllAboutTheTEA.com that she’s willing to take a lie detector test to prove that she and the former STL Cardinals baseball player engaged in a consensual sexual relationship and she never extorted him.
“Recent allegations labeling me an extortionist are false. Throughout this ordeal, myself and my child have been threatened by his wife.” Jennifer Villegas tells AllAboutTheTEA.com exclusively.
“I want to make a few things very clear — I never set anyone up, blackmailed anyone nor have I attempted to ruin anyone’s family. All my relationships have involved two consenting adults. I made a poor decision to enter a relationship with a married man, and for that I am sorry.” Jennifer Villegas statement continued.”
This “baseball madam” has been around for quite sometime and has apparently been trying to destroy families since 2003, according to US Magazine.
“My husband was a minor league player at the time and was on the road in Tennessee and she was at a game and somehow the two of them connected and exchanged phone numbers and contact information,” she tells Us. “She said that she worked at Under Armor and said she’d give him and his teammates apparel, would send them gear. … I got a Facebook message from a friend of hers, asking if I was still with my ex-husband.”
While her then-husband initially denied knowing Villegas, the former MLB wife tells Us that she caught him via a three-way phone call. “They were having a conversation and I was the third caller, the third person, and ended up having to catch him red-handed,” she claims. “It’s one of those things where you wake up every day and it’s on your mind and it’s one of those things that I didn’t know if I could get over. We separated five years after this happened and then finally divorced. I’ve wondered, too, over the years if they’ve been back in touch.”
She adds: “This is not just a jersey chaser who is impressed by a potential big name athlete and wants to sleep with him. … It was a whole mastermind manipulation scheme.”
“She will find a way to get around players who like to go out and cling to the ones that converse with her,” the second source claims.
That wasn’t all…
Meanwhile, another former baseball player, Us Weekly‘s third source, claims Villegas reached out to him via an Instagram direct message in late 2016. “She’s known around the baseball world,” he tells Us. “I fell for it. Other people have fallen for it. There’s other people that have talked to her. She used to call me when she was talking to some dude from Cincinnati.”
The athlete also alleges to Us that Villegas contacted his current fiancée after he ended the relationship.
“I threatened her multiple times that I was going to get harassment charges on her if she keeps contacting me,” he explains. “If I didn’t answer the phone, she would keep calling until I did. … It’s an absolutely nightmare. To be honest with you, I wouldn’t force my worst enemy to have to deal with that.”
This is a very determined and scary woman.
