First, Jeff spoke out on Monday’s episode of Jeff Lewis Live as the Flipping Out alum revealed that he and Gage had dinner on Friday night. Gage then confirmed the two of them have “started to heal” and noted that he is “optimistic” about his and Jeff’s future co-parenting relationship for their four-year-old daughter, Monroe Christine.
“There were fifteen minutes of the past, fifteen minutes of ‘I regret,’ ‘I’m sorry.’ . . . It was mostly focused on the present,” Jeff disclosed, via PEOPLE. “I know I’ve changed. I know he’s changed. Whatever this is, it’s a good thing.”
According to Jeff, he’s seen a positive change in both himself and his ex and believes they are headed to a better place in their relationship because of it.
“We’re co-parents, we’re becoming friends, we’re healing, we’re working through the past. I’m hoping for no more anger, no more resentment, no more striking out against each other,” he continued.
As fans of the former Bravolebrity may have seen, Jeff and Gage embarked on a messy custody battle over Monroe after their split in January 2019 and had been unable to agree on a permanent arrangement for her after an informal shared custody arrangement fell apart.
Amid their disputes, Gage demanded equal time with Monroe and requested her name be changed from Monroe Christine Lewis to Monroe Christine Edward Lewis.
Months later, Gage claims he and Jeff have started the process of healing as they remain focused on their common goal of raising their daughter in happy homes.
“I think Jeff and I have started to heal from what has happened in our past,” Gage told PEOPLE on February 23. “Our most important focus is raising our daughter in a loving environment and we are learning how to co-parent as effectively as we both can for her sake.”
“I am optimistic,” he added.
