HGTV ‘Flip or Flop’ Stars Separate After ‘Explosive’ Fight
Tarek and Christina El Moussa, stars of HGTV’s megahit “Flip or Flop,” have separated after a fight that involved guns and a suicide attempt, according to a report from TMZ.
Their ordeal started, at least publicly, in May when deputies responded to “a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun” at the couple’s Orange County home. Witnesses told cops they saw Tarek grab a gun from his safe, run out the back door and flee down a hiking trail. Shortly after, Christina was seen running out of the house crying and shaking. Within minutes, the helicopter spotted Tarek on a trail and deputies told him to drop his weapon. Tarek complied and told deputies he had no intention of hurting himself. He said he wanted to “blow off some steam,” and only brought the gun for mountain lions and rattlesnakes. Deputies went back to the house and ended up seizing 5 guns, including an AR-15.
Tarek and Christina are currently separated to “reevaluate” their marriage, but are committed to co-parenting and working on their HGTV show together. (That’s going to be awkward!)
I hate it when stuff like this happens. Why can’t people in Hollywood be happy?
