Jeff Lewis has blasted his former boyfriend Gage Edward during their bitter custody battle over daughter Monroe.
According to Lewis, “I literally put my face in my hands and I thought this guy’s going to torture me for the rest of my life. I’m a prisoner.”
As he interviewed Brooke Burke during his SiriusXM show Jeff Lewis Live this week, the Flipping Out star, 49, told fans about his struggle with his ex.
