Looks like the house-flipping reality star is “moving on” instead of “moving out” for a change! Eight months after Jeff split from his long-time partner, Gage Edward, the Bravo-lebrity is going public with his new main squeeze.
Megan Weaver, Jeff’s business partner and co-host of his Jeff Lewis Live show, posted a picture of Jeff and his new boyfriend on her Instagram page.
“So much fun with these guys💙💙💙#80snight#thelinehotel #openaire,” Megan wrote alongside the photo.
And just a couple days later, the reality star posted his own photo of him and Scott out with friends on September 1.
He also included four wine glass emojis alongside the photo.
According to The Daily Dish, these are the first pictures Jeff has posted of his boyfriend since he first spoke of him on his SiriusXM radio show, Jeff Lewis Live! back in June, just three months into their relationship.
Jeff first referred to Scott on his radio show as “a quiet guy from Portland, Oregon” and even called him “sweet.” At the time, the Flipping Out star was still in the midst of an ugly custody battle with Gage, who he shares his two-year-old daughter Monroe with.
“I got a lot of personal problems right now,” the outspoken Bravo star explained on his radio show. “This is a young, young relationship. We’re talking about three months. The last thing I want to do is burden him with my problems. I don’t want to sabotage this. I’m stepping back. There’s just too much going on right now.”
And while he spoke positively of Scott at the time, Jeff admitted that the two may not be the best match.
“This is a guy who wants kids and a family and to get married,” Jeff dished. “I told [Scott] that I don’t want to get married… and I also told him that I would never have another child with someone else. That’s not what you want to hear. You want to get married and you believe in the fairytale and you want to have kids together, and the guy you’re with says, ‘I’m never going to get married and the kids I have won’t be with you?’ That could probably be a little bit of an issue.”
Since that episode of Jeff Lewis Live! aired, Jeff and his ex managed to come to a temporary custody agreement and are no longer at odds with each other.
“I was very much relieved because my biggest concern was Monroe, and I feel like this works best for her,” said Jeff regarding his custody agreement on a Jeff Lewis Live! episode in August. “I want to co-parent with Gage. I’m feeling very hopeful moving forward. He’s a good dad.”
