Roughly one year after their dramatic split, former ‘Flipping Out’ stars Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward are still in the throes of a complicated legal battle. Here are five things you need to know about Gage.
Jeff Lewis, 49, revealed on a shocking episode of his SiriusXM show, Jeff Lewis Live, that his former partner, Gage Edward, 34, is suing him with a very odd request. “Yesterday, I was served by Gage,” Jeff shared on his show. “He did file a request for order which means that we now have a hearing date. They put in all of their requests, like I want 50% and I want child support.” The wild request, however, came when Jeff revealed that “Gage is requesting that we change [our three-year-old daughter] Monroe’s name.” As this drama continues to unfold, here is everything you need to know about Gage Edward.
