Flipping Out star Jeff Lewis is updating fans about his young daughter after she was asked to leave her previous preschool due to his actions.
The outspoken reality star took to his Sirius XM show to let the world know that his nearly 3-year-old daughter Monroe is no longer without a school. But according to Jeff, it didn’t come without a price.
“I did get her into a new school but I did have to pull a Lori Loughlin and make a donation,” Jeff dished on Tuesday while taping Jeff Lewis Live, his SiriusXM show as reported by Yahoo. “I mean, I didn’t have anyone take a test for her, you know. I didn’t do anything like that.”
Jeff is, of course, referring to Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin’s involvement in Operation Varsity Blues, a now-infamous college admission scandal. The TV star was accused of paying up to $500,000 to get her daughters admitted to the University of Southern California on false terms. She has since pleaded “not guilty” to the charges.
“Everyone is like, ‘How did you get her in school so quickly?’” Jeff explained further on his show. “And I’m like ‘I don’t know, I guess they just had a space!’ Well I sponsored the carnival, that’s how it happened.”
Jeff was left scrambling to find his young daughter a new preschool to attend after she was expelled from the highly-regarded Montessori preschool back in September. The reality star was ultimately the reason for the expulsion as he was accused of “bullying other moms and giving the school a bad reputation,” according to a previous report.
Jeff shares Monroe with his ex of 10 years, Gage Edward, who was reportedly upset after hearing the details of the expulsion. The estranged couple currently shares custody over Monroe.
