Jeff Lewis revealed he has been forced to lay off half of his employees amid the coronavirus pandemic during a recent episode of his SiriusXM show. He also blamed his expensive lawsuit against his ex, Gage Edward on a recent episode of his SiriusXM show.
“What I don’t understand is: Where is he getting the money to wage this war?” continued Lewis. “Because… my design business is tanking right now. So if my design business is tanking, his has got to be tanking. Where are you getting the money? What are you doing? This is financial suicide.”
The former Flipping Out star explained that Gage Edward’s lawsuit was filed the day before his birthday, so he expected at the time to be served on his birthday.
“Forget my birthday. During this time right now, to be doing this is sick,” Lewis said, noting that he now has to hire another attorney. “The amount of money that we are spending fighting each other could be going to people that need my money, like my employees by the way.”
Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward broke up in February 2019 after 10 years together. They share a 2½-year-old daughter, Monroe, who was expelled from preschool over comments Jeff had made on his radio show. She’s now attending a new school, after Jeff said he made “a donation” to the institution.
