It’s back to work for Tarek El Moussa!
The Flip or Flop star is in the midst of a drama-filled divorce from his wife Christina El Moussa — who also co-stars alongside him on the popular HGTV series. But even though his personal life is in turmoil, the father-of-two is still working on set and he even brought his kids along with him!
“On #set today with my #loves! I love creating #memories on camera together,” the 35-year-old wrote in the caption on Instagram. “Many years from now we will sit with our #grandkids and binge watch #FliporFlop!! So #lucky to do what we do! Just LOVE them.”
Fans left comments of support for Tarek, and many of them gushed over him and his kids and pointed out that he’s a great father to one-year-old son Brayden and six-year-old daughter Taylor.
Tarek and Christina shocked fans when they announced their split last December — and the details of their impending divorce have gotten more and more scandalous. Tarek officially filed for divorce last month, and there have been multiple reasons for their split — from Christina’s relationship with the family’s contractor Gary Anderson to the verbal abuse that Christina suffered from Tarek.
Even though their split is getting nasty, the former couple is being forced to work together. In Touch previously revealed that HGTV threatened to sue them for breach of contract if they didn’t fulfill their end of the deal — and Tarek and Christina even made their first joint work-related appearance last week.
“This is getting really ugly,” a network source exclusively told In Touch. “HGTV is livid with Tarek and Christina. Flip or Flop just won’t be the same if they’re not together, so execs desperately want them to reunite to save the show. If they can’t do that, the network wants them to make it seem like they’re getting along at least until their contract is over. They were given an ultimatum: Either finish out your contracts or we’ll take you to court [for breach of contract].”
