This honestly doesn’t seem real!!!
According to US Weekly, the couple — Tarek and Christina El Moussa — behind HGTV’s hit show Flip or Flop have separated after 7-years of marriage. They always seemed like the perfect match on TV together.
“TMZ reported that police were called to the HGTV stars’ home in California’s famed Orange County in May in response to a ‘possibly suicidal male with a gun.’ Eyewitnesses told the site that Tarek grabbed a gun from his safe before running out of the couple’s house toward a nearby hiking trail…Shortly after, Tarek told authorities ‘he had no intention of hurting himself,’ and was merely trying to ‘blow off some steam.’ Orange County deputies then reportedly entered the couple’s home and seized five guns, including an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.”
The duo have starred on HGTV since 2013 and their show has been a big hit — it always re-runs on the station. In their statement to TMZ, Tarek claimed, “[We] will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together.”
Tarek and Christina have two children together who they will continue to co-parent together:
