After announcing last month that they were separating, HGTV’s Flip or Flop stars are headed for divorce court.
Tarek El Moussa’s attorney revealed to People that his client has filed for divorce from his wife, Christina.
Although the pair did not announce their split until December, they had actually separated months before that after some type of altercation in which Tarek grabbed a gun and ran out of the couple’s property last May.
“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” they said in a joint statement. “We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed.”
Some scandalous headlines have followed them since that announcement including Tarek reportedly dating his children’s former nanny and Christina’s new beau reportedly having gone through multiple bitter divorces.
They two HGTV stars have previously stated that they would like to continue their professional realtionship working on their hit show.
