While Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa could be looking at a complicated divorce with husband Tarek El Moussa, her new beau, Gary Anderson, could give her some pointers as he’s been through two messy and expensive divorces himself.
In legal divorce filings, obtained byIn Touch Weekly, Anderson’s first split from wife Jo Ann in 1999 was the most bitter. After 13 years of marriage, they spent nearly a decade battling in court, fighting over money and custody of their daughters.
According to the documents, Anderson understated how much he made and when it was revealed that his income was much higher than he said it was, he was ordered to pay Jo Ann $4,000 a month in spousal support until 2003, $7,082 a month in child support and $100,000 in back child support. He also agreed to put an additional $50,000 in a bank account for his daughters.
Anderson divorced his second wife in 2005 after just four years of marriage and was forced to give up a bunch of money and property as well.
Now Anderson, the contractor who most recently worked with El Moussa and husband on their backyard renovation project, is reportedly dating Christina. Anderson was the one who comforted her during Tarek’s incident with the police last May.
