“I wouldn’t say anyone was friendly at the time, no,” he said during the Zoom interview. Eklund went on to say that he got into it with just about everyone on the cast on the West Coast. “The only one I didn’t fight with was Flagg. And I love him, like how can you fight with Flagg? I mean, really.” Despite that dynamic on the show, Eklund said that they all really love each other and have great relationships. Other cast members tell a different story though.

After his chat with ET in September, Josh Flagg announced that he would be moving real estate firms. Evidently, Eklund had already spoiled the surprise. When Fredrik commented on Flagg’s Instagram post making the announcement, Flagg told him to “shut up” and made a second follow-up comment calling him a “phony.”After that, fans began to call for Eklund to be removed from the show and there were a lot of tensions continuing to rise on set. Now, Eklund has announced he’s leaving the program entirely.

Fans Seem Happy About Eklund’s Departure

He made the announcement that he would be leaving Million Dollar Listing on January 24 and fans took to Twitter to share their reactions. A few people chimed in saying it was good that he is leaving that show and called him “awful.” Most people weren’t surprised by his announcement either.

In his Instagram post announcing his departure from the show, Eklund said he let all of the producers on the show know how special the last decade has been for him. During that time, he shared some of the most intimate moments of his life with viewers and fans.
