While it’s not widely discussed on the show, Geoffrey tragically lost one of his children in 2018. The incident is mentioned briefly in his TLC bio, though it’s not talked about much on the show.
“The last few years have been rough for Geoffrey,” his bio reads. “Shortly after his second marriage ended in divorce, he suffered the tragic loss of his son. But life started to look up when he met Varya on an international dating site.”
In 2018, Geoffrey’s youngest son, Kazhem, suffered a seizure when he was only 13 months old.
“I’ve had a lot of heartbreak in my life, but by far the absolute worst is what happened to Kazhem,” Geoffrey said on the show. “He was at the house and he had a seizure. While in the hospital, they put him in a coma. Several days later, they had him on life support and I held him as they pulled the plug. Losing a child is the absolute worst thing that could ever happen to you. There’s going to be a hole in my heart for the rest of my life, but I know that Kazhem’s all around me, and that gives me peace in my heart to know that.”
Kazhem was Geoffrey’s second son from his second wife, and he’s still fighting for custody of their first child. He currently has custody of two of his sons, Dakota and Paxton.
There have been rumors that Geoffrey and Varya will be absent from the Tell-All special, so instead, Geoffrey has decided to host his own on his YouTube channel. In his own video series, Geoffrey plans to answer a lot of the hard-hitting questions viewers have about his past and his children, including Kazhem.
