While Jeff Lewis continues to share many intimate details of his relationship with Gage Edward, from their breakup back in January to the challenges of co-parenting daughter Monroe, Gage has stayed mostly mum on the matter — and that's exactly what he's going to keep on doing.
When asked for a comment by PEOPLE on Wednesday, October 9, on Jeff's latest claims about the former couple's legal fees as they try to reach a custody agreement for Monroe, who turns 3 later this month, Gage said, “In the interest of my daughter, I continue to have no comment on the matter."
This comes after Jeff shared the latest on his custody battle with Gage in the October 8 episode of his Radio Andy show Jeff Lewis Live. “I have begged him to try to work this out together, but what happens is, sometimes, in all honesty, I feel like I’m co-parenting my child with a child,” Jeff said. “On Sunday, I literally put my face in my hands and thought, ‘This guy is going to torture me for the rest of my life. I’m a prisoner.’”
After reaching a temporary custody agreement in August, the Flipping Out exes were supposed to meet again on October 3 to come to a permanent custody agreement for Monroe. However, a source close to the situation told PEOPLE that Jeff and Gage cancelled a private mediation before a judge in an effort to work things out privately with lawyers.
They had both been seeking joint legal and physical custody, but now, Jeff said that he is "fighting for the majority of the custody," which he feels is in Monroe's "best interest."
Jeff claims that Gage changes his mind after they agree upon something, which has caused him to rethink how he works with him in the future. “I have been very communicative and very open. That’s going to shift now,” Jeff shared. “I’m going to stonewall it. If this is the way he’s going to play it, there will be no more communication. … I want limited contact [with Gage]. I want a legal schedule. I’m done. I’m f--king done.”
