Just a month after separating from his wife Christina, “Flip or Flop” star Tarek El Moussa has filed for divorce. The El Moussas were two real estate agents trying to survive after the 2008 real estate crash cost them nearly everything. The couple started a business buying foreclosed houses in California and flipping them for a profit utilizing Tarek’s investment savvy and Christina’s designing skills. “Flip or Flop” debuted in April of 2013 and focused on their exploits buying and selling homes. In four years, it has become the second-highest rated program on HGTV.
Tarek El Moussa, 36, cited irreconcilable differences in his divorce petition and requested joint custody of their two children, a son Brayden, 1, and a daughter Taylor, 6. Tarek not only requested spousal support from Christina, 33 but also requested that the court denies any her any request for spousal support. The El Moussas married in 2009.
Sources say that the two are trying to be civilized under the circumstances since their television show relies on their relationship. “They have to make it work if they want to continue monetizing what they do.” Christina is currently dating a contractor Gary Anderson, while Tarek briefly dated the couple’s former nanny. It is reported that neither of these extramarital affairs caused the couple’s separation.
An altercation which ended with law enforcement seizing guns from their residence caused the couple to separate in May 2016. Police were called to the El Moussa’s home after Tarek El Moussa was seen armed with a gun, running away from the property. The couple later stated that the incident was not violent and no charges were filed.
