As cities and states across America shut down amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, employers have been struggling to keep their businesses afloat. Jeff Lewis is just one of those small business owners facing challenges in these difficult times.
The Flipping Out designer opened up about his latest lawsuit with his ex Gage Edward during his Sirius XM radio show Jeff Lewis Live earlier this week and remarked how the former partners are spending so much money in litigation at a time when many are facing unemployment.
"The amount of money that we are spending fighting each other could be going to people that need the money, like my employees, by the way, half of which are laid off. Half are laid off, half are working from home," Jeff shared. "What I don't understand is where is he getting the money to wage this war?"
Jeff went on to say that his design firm has been hit hard by the global crisis. "I'll tell you, I'll be honest with you, my design business is tanking right now," he said. "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."
Gage had been working for Jeff Lewis Design before departing the company in May 2019 after he and Jeff broke up at the beginning of that year. Gage later shared on his Instagram that he had begun working on his own design projects in June.
Gage recently filed a lawsuit against Jeff, suing his ex over a $125,000 loan given to help him finance "real estate projects and his business" in 2016 that was allegedly never paid back.
