‘Flipping Out’ Star Jeff Lewis Splits with Longtime Partner Gage Edwards: Claims Gage Has “Broken Up Our Family”

“It’s over!”

Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis has booted yet another important person from his life.

The reality TV star announced during Thursday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show Jeff Lewis Live that he has split with his boyfriend of 10 years, Gage Edwards. The couple shares two-year-old daughter Monroe.

Jeff stated that Gage moved out of their home on Wednesday. Jeff said that, before the move, he and Gage had been sleeping in separate bedrooms. It appears that Jeff believes that most of the blame for the split lies with Gage.

“If you think about it metaphorically, Gage has burned down our house and broken up our family,” Jeff stated during the broadcast.

Jeff explained that the couple’s living situation was very different from what they were presenting to the public over the last year.

“This has been a long time coming,” Jeff told his listeners. “We were in separate rooms a significant portion of last year, so it was kind of like a roommate situation… We were like friends with benefits. We would still hook up, inconsistently. I was still encouraged, like, ‘There’s still something here… he’s still interested in me…’ But there was a real lack of intimacy because he wasn’t in my room. So I actually felt very lonely and sad and disappointed.”

He stated that he eventually asked Gage to leave the home they share.

“That arrangement doesn’t work for me. I already feel tortured by this — for months, and months, and months,” Jeff said. “I said to him, ‘I want to be very clear, I’m not throwing you out. I’m not breaking up with you. I’m here. You need time and space to get perspective.'”

Jeff revealed that Gage is currently living in a hotel, and has been “angrily” looking for apartments recently.

“I hope he gets the clarity and perspective he needs,” Jeff said. “There’s so much anger that he has lost sight of the good things. Every time we have one of these discussions, it’s so overwhelmingly negative.”

For now, Jeff says that their daughter Monroe will live with him. (Monroe is biologically Jeff’s daughter, but Gage has raised her since her birth in 2016.)

“I think the reason we hadn’t ripped the Band-Aid off and separated is because a) we had the baby and neither one of us want to leave the baby and then b) financially, it wasn’t the best time because I have four properties right now — three of which are in construction and one of which is sellable,” Jeff added.

‘Flipping Out’ viewers got a glimpse into the couple’s tumultuous relationship during an episode that aired in October 2018. During the episode, Jeff was seen yelling at Gage over household chores, among other things, causing Gage to eventually whisper to their co-star Jenny Pulos, “I don’t think I want to do this anymore, I think I’m done. I’m kind of just, I’m kind of just done.”

Gage is not the only person that Jeff has recently ended a relationship with. Last year Jeff broke off his long-time friendship with Jenny, resulting in her leaving the show.

The last new episode of ‘Flipping Out’ aired in November, and the show has yet to be renewed.

Anyway, Jeff appears to still be holding out hope that he can reunite with Gage at some point.

“I’m hoping that the guy wakes up. I’m hoping that he sits in his hotel room, misses his family, starts focusing on the positive, and stops focusing on the negative,” Jeff said. “That’s what I’m really hoping.”

Gage has not yet spoken publicly about the split.

  1. I love this show, but Jeff has no filter when it comes to hurting people. Such a shame because you could see that Gage really loves Monroe and now she is stuck with narcissist Jeff.

  2. Jeff ruins every relationship he has, partner or employee. Narcissist personality. Gage raised her the first year. I’m sure Jeff will use Monroe (genetically Jeff) against Gage & ruin his own relationship with his daughter. After he fired Jenni & treated her like garbage, I will no longer watch. I do like his radio show so far

  3. Having been a teacher for more years than I care to admit, I would like to add a new possibility. I really think that Jeff is on the autism spectrum. He is unaware of how his actions affect others. He is brilliant, driven, creative, and very sure that is is correct in business, and in relationships. He seems detached but really wants to be in the real world of people. He is not physically affectionate. It sounds a lot like Asberger’s to me.

  4. Very sad!!!! I love these 2 to be honest I think they complete each other yes Jeff can be a bit much but Gage accepted that & I think even him out. Jeff stayed he hopes they can work it out. I guess I really hope so to!!!! Monroe needs you both!!!!!

  5. I’ve watched the show for quite awhile and I’m not surprised.

    Of course Jeff is going to blame Gage because Jeff is always right! I’m kidding, I watch the show because I love the drama that Jeff causes. He’s such a bitch. I feel sorry for Munroe, though.

  6. I love them. I only started watching the show when the surrogate was pregnant. I don’t know why Jenny left? But I certainly hope that Jeff and Gage get back together! This little Monroe NEEDS her parents full time. Don’t be a Hollywood family 🙁
