Tarek El Moussa, the host of Flip or Flop, broke the silence about his blowout fight with ex-wife and co-star, Christina Haack. Tarek said the fight, which happened back in July, was a mistake and he never wants to get in a fight like that again. According to a source, both Tarek and Christina shared choice words with each other.
According to witnesses, the fight broke out during filming for an episode of Flip or Flop. Tarek did not like how Christina told him that it was time to get ready for filming and he exploded at his ex-wife.
He allegedly compared her to his current fiancée, Heather Rae Young, and called his ex-wife a “washed-up loser.” Near the end of the fight, Tarek told his ex-wife, “Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning,” he said before adding, “The world knows you’re crazy!”
Christina fought back by mentioning how supported she was with her current boyfriend, Joshua Hall. The reality TV star posted on her Instagram and said, “Some people are lucky enough to get forever the first time but no one should be shamed for things not working out and no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.”
Apparently, the fight wasn’t that bad because the next day Christina posted on Instagram that she had had a nice time on set.
Tarek El Moussa recently said that he wished he could take the fight back and hopes that the former couple can move forward for the sake of their children. The former couple shares two children together, Taylor, 10, and Brayden, 5.
He said that he wanted his kids to look back at their parents and know that despite the divorce, the two of them still loved and supported each other.
The couple divorced in 2016 after 8 years of marriage. The divorce allegedly involved the police coming to their home. Officers seized five guns from the property. The couple went into marriage counseling and decided to split up and focus more on their children. While they continued to work together on Flip or Flop, Tarek admitted that it’s not always smooth sailing when working with his ex.
“As you can imagine, it can be stressful working with an ex and we did have an incident where some choice words were said on both sides and I’m sure we both wish the whole thing never happened. I mean, I certainly do, but I mean, honestly, since we got into that little disagreement a few months back, I’ve just decided that moving forward, never again,” Tarek said.
After their divorce, Christina Haack went on to marry Ant Anstead and they welcomed a son together. They then divorced in 2021 and Christina moved on to dating Joshua Hall. Tarek El Moussa is currently engaged to Heather Rae Young, who is the host of Selling Sunset, and the two just celebrated their bachelor and bachelorette parties ahead of their upcoming wedding.
