Jeff Lewis Says ‘I Have Failed My Child’ as He Takes Responsibility for Separation from Partner


Jeff Lewis is taking responsibility for his dramatic separation from partner of 10 years, Gage Edward.

During Monday’s episode of his SiriusXM radio show Jeff Lewis Live, the Flipping Out star said he called Edward, with whom he shares two-year-old daughter Monroe, to say he was at fault for their recent rift.

Lewis, 48, claims he told Edward, 33, “I just want you to know I have heard everything you’ve had to say to me in the last couple of weeks, and I take 100% responsibility for what has gone wrong in this relationship, and I truly feel like I have failed you, I have failed my child, and I have failed my family.”

The phone call came after the pair had a “terrible” dinner together, which Lewis stormed out of after he says Edward lectured and criticized him.

“I said, ‘I could not feel more like a failure. I could not feel any worse than how I feel today,’” Lewis continued. “‘I want you to know that you’ve already given me a thousand examples of why I’ve been an a—hole and I agree with you. I do not need another thousand examples.”

The Bravo star then claims he asked his estranged partner and Flipping Out co-star “as a friend and as a person who ” to acknowledge that he is attempting to alter his behavior.

“I’m working really hard to implement these changes in my life and what I would prefer to have from you is support and acknowledgement,” Lewis says he told Edward on the phone. “So if you see at any point that I’ve reacted differently to a situation or if you’ve noticed any changes, as little as they may be, I would love a little word of encouragement.”

He added, “I do not want you to beat the s—t out of me anymore because I am spilling into a very very deep, dark depression and I want to stop this now.”

On the show, Lewis acknowledged he has previously made several unflattering comments about Edward on the radio. (During prior episodes, Lewis called Edward out for allegedly going on a date with a “home wrecker” he met at the gym a week after their separation, and claimed that after Edward moved out he was “a single dad” because Monroe was still living with him.)

“I did not host the radio last week. My wounded inner child did,” Lewis said, referring to a part of his personality that he identified in therapy.

“Your inner child lives in all of us, it lives in our unconscious mind, and it basically makes choices on how we respond to situations,” Lewis explained. “So the point is, I have a very hurt, wounded inner child.”

He also acknowledged it may be responsible for his TV success.
