NASCAR's Edwards takes issue with claims in ex-girlfriend's book

FORT WORTH, Texas — Carl Edwards disagrees with assertions by Olympic swimmer Amanda Beard that the NASCAR driver was controlling and jealous during their yearlong relationship.

Edwards said Friday he was puzzled by what his former girlfriend wrote about their time together. Beard’s 256-page memoir was released last week.

She writes that she was now finally at peace as a happily married and proud mom after years of struggling with depression, bulimia, drug abuse and toxic relationships. About a dozen pages are devoted to her time with Edwards from 2005 to 2006.

Asked if he’d dispute how Beard described him, Edwards responded, “Absolutely.”
