Did Gage Edward Quit His Job at Jeff Lewis Design? Jeff Lewis Gives an Update
Gage Edward and Jeff Lewis were seen as a couple and working together on Flipping Out. They have since broken up after the show but continued working together. Did that change? This is Lewis’ latest update on their working relationship.
Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward broke up earlier this year
It was revealed that the couple broke up through Lewis’ announcement on Jeff Lewis Live. He said they were having relationship problems for some time.
“This has been a long time coming. We were in separate rooms a significant portion of last year, so it was kind of like a roommate situation,” he said. The two were still holding on to make things work for several reasons.
“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,” explained Lewis.
Lewis and Edward were still working together after their breakup
Lewis might have a history of firing people he doesn’t get along with, but he shockingly still worked with Edward after their breakup. He talked a little about their working relationship after the big change.
He said Edward “goes to our houses and he manages the sites” on Jeff Lewis Live, according to Bravo. Lewis claimed that this was working for them.
“We’ve been very civil. It’s been civil,” said the designer. “I want to be happy, and I want him to be happy.”
Lewis said Edward quit his job at Jeff Lewis Design
The designer revealed on his radio show, Jeff Lewis Live that his working relationship with Edward is also coming to a close. The two were still working together after their breakup, which might have made things difficult.
“My partner left me three months ago. He’s leaving the business,” he said according to Reality Blurb. “I feel like he’s leaving me again. So, I haven’t had the best morning. But I’m going to chose to be happy. He’s leaving the business in a week.”
He went on to describe what it felt like to still work together. “By working with him, it was my version of still seeing him, still spending time with him. So, now that he’s leaving the business, it’s a second breakup.” The reality star admitted that working together was “not a healthy choice.”
This isn’t the only big change the former couple has made. Lewis previously revealed they were struggling with co-parenting and seeing each other so often. The designer claimed they will now be coming up with a schedule for their daughter, Monroe.
It sounds like the former couple is making big changes to move on. Edward’s last day at Jeff Lewis Design will in a week.
