Moments ago, Jeff took to his Instagram page to throw some major shade at his former friend just days after he revealed she accused him of abuse.
Ahead of his show’s new season premiere tonight, Jeff, 48, shared a cast photo of himself, his partner Gage Edward, and Jenni — except he took the time to mark out an X on Jenni’s face! A screenshot of Jeff’s shady Instagram post is below.
Last week, Jeff revealed on his Sirius XM radio show, Jeff Lewis Live, that he is currently estranged from Jenni and hasn’t spoken to her in three months after she went to Bravo to accuse him of ‘abuse and a having hostile work environment.’
According to Jeff, the drama between the two began following a fight they had earlier this year during which Jenni told him she had been sacrificing her acting career to work for him. Following that fight, Jeff says the two met up for lunch and he told Jenni it was probably best for her to take a step back from her role on the show and appear simply as a friend rather than a regular cast member.
One of the reasons Jeff wanted this, he claims, is because Jenni had stopped working for him for the last couple of years and would simply come on the set to film during the few months out of the year when Bravo filmed their series. He added that she was employed and being paid by Bravo.
Jeff said he thought they were on good terms following that lunch, until he found out from his show’s production company that Jenni had reported him for “abuse and victimization.” He added that she then doubled down last week by also accusing him of ‘wrongful termination.’
Jeff added that he has been investigated by Bravo and cleared of any wrongdoing. He however feels that Jenni put his career in jeopardy with her actions.
“It put my entire career in jeopardy. My family, my livelihood, my everything,” said Jeff. “But I have been cleared of [everything]. I would never do that to her.”
When it comes to the future of Flipping Out, Jeff revealed he suspects this will likely be the final season of the show.
Flipping Out season 11 premieres tonight on Bravo at 10:15/9:15c.
