Tarek El Moussa Files for Divorce from Christina El Moussa

Flip or Flop’s Tarek El Moussa has officially filed for divorce from Christina El Moussa.

Tarek’s lawyer confirmed the filing of his court documents in an exclusive statement to People on Monday (Jan. 9, 2017). This news arrives one month after the Flip or Flop couple announced their separation. They had been married for seven years.

In May 2016, police became involved in an incident at their California home in response to a “call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun.” Tarek alleged that he never intended to harm himself with his firearm, but only wanted to “blow off some steam.”

The couple confirmed that they “dated other people following the separation” in a prior statement. Specifically, Christina is reportedly dating home contractor Gary Anderson, who was present during the aforementioned scenario in May.

Flip or Flop will only continue to film in 2017 until all of the couple’s contractual obligations have been fulfilled. “The show will end after that,” a source told People.
