The ongoing custody battle between Jeff Lewis and Gage Edward seems to be hitting another rough patch.

It seems that an agreement reached between the pair, which they were due to sign off on this month, is no longer satisfactory to Lewis.
According to People, he now wants to turn everything over to a judge and pursue the matter in court.
Lewis, 49, told his radio listeners: ‘I’m going to fight this to the bitter f***ing end. If I felt like the motivation was pure and this was about our daughter, then I’d be very open to mediation or whatever. But because I really believe that this is serving his best interest, I will fight it. If we have to go to court, we go to court.’
In a statement provided to People, Edward, 34, responded: ‘I will continue to stay silent on the issues related to our private custody case. To address the derogatory and slanderous statements being made about me would be putting my interest above our daughter’s. The situation is being exploited for attention, which is sad because that ultimately only affects our daughter later. What I will say is that there are gross mistruths in the majority of what’s been said.’

Lewis and Edward broke up a year ago after a decade together.
They had agreed a temporary custody arrangement which they stuck to for months as they discussed a more formal agreement.
Edward currently has their little girl three days a week, but according to Lewis, wants to increase that in the permanent agreement to almost a 50-50 split.
Lewis claims that the only reason his former partner wants more time with Monroe is in order to obtain more child support.
‘We had talked about a cash upfront thing and it would be done and he was going to waive child support. But I kind of think now…there’s a whole plan in place,’ Lewis said Friday, per People.
‘I hate to think this but… normally when someone is caught up in the days and the hours and the percentages, it usually means there’s some sort of child support motivation,’ he went on. ‘I do believe this is money-motivated.’
