And it’s already over!
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa ended her relationship with her contractor boyfriend Gary Anderson.
While the relationship may have been short-lived, we’ve broken down everything you need to know about their relationship and subsequent breakup — check it out!
How Did They Meet?
The pair first met when he was hired back in 2015 to do work on the El Moussas pool. The two immediately took a liking to each other — and her estranged husband Tarek even suspected Christina was texting another man behind his back, but the two have denied that’s the case.
Both Tarek and Christina have since denied the possibility of either of them texting another person, telling In Touch in a statement, “Neither of us was involved in a romantic relationship with any third party prior to our separation, or believes the other was.”
What Was Their Relationship Like?
Even before Gary and Christina called it quits, the couple faced troubles in their relationship — mostly stemming from the fact that he didn’t like being around children (Christina has two small kids — six-year-old Taylor and 18-month-old Brayden).
“He doesn’t even like being around [young kids],” a friend of the contractor previously told In Touch.
What Did Tarek Think of the Couple?
Needless to say, Tarek wasn’t a fan of his wife’s new relationship. As one source noted, seeing Christina with Gary added insult to injury.
“It’s hard for Tarek to see Christina dating, but it’s even worse that Gary is the guy she’s with,” the source explained. “There’s nothing that could be more upsetting to Tarek than to see her with a guy who is like him but better — and that’s Gary. He’s in the same industry as Tarek, but he’s older and more established and has more money.”
Why’d They Breakup?
The two allegedly decided to end things because they succumbed to “too many outside pressures,” a source previously told Us Weekly. In a statement to the New York Daily News, her rep confirmed that she’s once again a single lady, explaining, “Christina is single and being in a relationship is the last thing on her mind. She is taking this time to focus on her children and herself.”
