Jeff Lewis Says Daughter Was Rejected From Private School Amid Backlash from 'Superspreader' Party

Jeff Lewis is sharing his concerns.

On a new episode of his SiriusXM show Jeff Lewis Live, the reality TV star shared that one his 5-year-old daughter Monroe‘s applications to a private school had been rejected recently.

According to People, the decision came after Jeff made headlines for throwing a “superspreader” holiday party for 30 of his employees and friends.

While he didn’t explicitly attribute the rejection to the backlash he’s received, the Flipping Out alum explained that his ex Gage Edwards, who he shares Monroe with, was fearful his comments would impact her “four or five” other applications.

Gage and I in the last week or two have been getting along famously and coparenting nicely until all those articles [about the party] came out,” he said. “And now Gage is concerned Monroe is not going to get into private school.”

“This is very bad timing for us,” he continued. “We’ve heard back from one school, and they got back to us right away. They said, ‘We know who you are. We know who Monroe is and… we are not interested in Monroe.’ That’s what they said.”

“She’s a f—ing angel,” Jeff added. “Why would you deny her? She has so much to offer to that school.”

Back in 2019, Monroe was expelled from a Montessori preschool after he made negative comments about the school on his radio show, where he criticized a “Back to School Night” held for parents and read two internal emails from parents.

“I take full responsibility,” he said at the time. “I am really, really sorry I feel terrible about what happened. I know how it has affected Monroe. I will never do this again.”

On Wednesday’s show, he explained that he’d learnt his lesson and was choosing to “take the high road” in order to protect Monroe‘s chances at other schools.

“Things can get real ugly where I can start naming the school, naming [the administrator] — but I wouldn’t do that because I’m taking the high road,” Jeff shared. “That’s not a threat.”

He also said on Tuesday’s show that he’s hopeful that the headlines he’s made over the past week would help determine which school would be the right fit for their family.

“More than likely there’s going to be some slip-ups with me, so we should weed it out now,” he admitted. “Who’s okay with this? Who’s not okay with this? If you’re not okay with this, I’d rather hear about it now that 6 months into kindergarten….”

In case you missed it, Jeff got into a feud with a famous rapper at the start of the pandemic.
