Jeff Lewis reveals he is a ‘functioning alcoholic’

Jeff Lewis admits his breakup and battle with ex Gage Edward for the custody of their 3-year-old daughter, Monroe, has led him to drink excessively.

“I’m leaning a little bit on alcohol as a result of it numbs the ache,” he mentioned on his SiriusXM radio present on Wednesday. “It helps me with my stress. It helps me loosen up, and it’s turn out to be a routine, frankly.”

The “Flipping Out” star mentioned he thought-about eradicating all of the booze from his home as a result of “that may reduce out alcohol consumption by like 60 %.”

“As a result of I drink dwelling alone,” he added.

Lewis, 49, and Edward, 35, break up in January after 10 years collectively. The radio host revealed on the time that the pair had been dwelling like roommates and lacked intimacy.

4 months later, Lewis mentioned, he and his ex had been struggling to determine a correct co-parenting schedule after their breakup.

“I don’t essentially need to be there when he’s there on a regular basis,” he mentioned in Could.

Lewis now admits he made some errors within the relationship.

“If I might flip again the clock two years, I might do issues very in another way than I did,” he mentioned on Wednesday. “I disrespected my ex, and I disrespected my relationship, and he disrespected me within the relationship, and we did irreparable harm.”

He added, “I want to have a friendship with Gage.”

When his co-hosts Kelly Wagner and Eden Sasson requested him what a friendship with Edward would appear to be, Lewis responded, “This is too deep for me, I imply, I simply admitted I’m a functioning alcoholic.”
