Jeff Lewis recently had to announce he was no longer working with his Flipping Out co-star Jenni Pulos. Now the reality star is making another shocking announcement that he and his partner, Gage Edward are splitting up. But is there a chance they are open to reuniting? Here is everything to know.

The reality star revealed on his radio show, Jeff Lewis Live that the couple has broken up on Jan. 31. He said that Edward moved out the day before and gave some insight to what led to the breakup.

Jeff Lewis said “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,” according to People. He said their daughter, Monroe will be living with him.

He went on to say why the two were trying to work on their relationship. Lewis said, “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.”

Lewis said they were more like friends with benefits

According to the Flipping Out star, the two really grew apart and weren’t acting like a couple in love. “We were like friends with benefits,” said Lewis. “We would still hook up, inconsistently. I was still encouraged, like, ‘There’s still something here … he’s still interested in me …’ but there was a real lack of intimacy because he wasn’t in my room. So, I actually felt very lonely and sad and disappointed.”

Lewis also claimed that he was the one that put an end to things. “That arrangement doesn’t work for me. I already feel tortured by this — for months, and months, and months,” he explained according to People. “I said to him, ‘I want to be very clear, I’m not throwing you out. I’m not breaking up with you. I’m here. You need time and space to get perspective.’”

Lewis said they could reunite if they leave the past behind

The break also seems to be in order to break the cycle of how their conversations were going. Lewis talked about the tone of their recent discussions.

“There’s so much anger that he has lost sight of the good things,” said Lewis. “Every time we have one of these discussions, it’s so overwhelmingly negative. I have a very different perspective. Last year was hell, but I remember nine pretty solid years. We had some fun. So I said to him, ‘I encourage you to work through that resentment and focus on the positive things because there could be more to come.’”

It seems like Lewis is leaving the possibility of them reuniting. He said his therapist recommended that if they do try again they would have to leave their past behind. “If this happens, I’m kind of excited about this courting process,” said Lewis.

Edward has yet to make a statement about moving out and the split. But it seems like Lewis is leaving room for different possibilities in the future.
