In Touch is exclusively reporting in its new issue this week that Christina El Moussa’s new man, Doug Spedding, whom she's been spotted out and about with, has faced a slew of legal woes including multiple arrests for domestic violence and a felony drug possession charge.
Court records exclusively obtained by In Touch show that in October 2010 the Flip or Flop star's new boyfriend, Doug, was arrested and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence, which was later upgraded to a felony charge. Protective orders were issued by the courts and are sealed, but he was charged with violating those orders on five different occasions between October 2010 and July 2011.

From 2010 through 2013, Doug was in constant trouble with the law. Some lowlights include: A protective order against him was signed and served on Oct. 12, 2010. The order was to keep him away from the mother of his two children. In 2011 she requested the order be modified to "allow peaceful contact ... for joint counseling." The court granted that request. Court minutes reflect that Spedding was in custody in July 2011. In August of that year, he had SEVEN cases pending against him at the same time.
In July 2011, Christina’s new man was also arrested and charged with felony drug possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He eventually pleaded guilty to the drug possession charge and completed an 18-month diversion program. Ultimately, all charges against him were dismissed.
There are more red flags for Christina. Tracy Diaz says that she is also dating Doug.
“I’ve been seeing Doug for almost four years. He hasn’t officially ended our relationship. He was just with me three days ago!” she says.
Tracy believes that Doug, who romantically reconnected with Christina at an Anaheim Ducks hockey game in May, “really likes Christina, but obviously, he’s not being loyal to her.”
