And it’s already over!
According to a new report by Us Weekly, Flip or Flop star Christina El Moussa has split from her new boyfriend, Gary Anderson. The made their relationship official just days after Christina’s estranged husband, Tarek, filed for divorce.
An insider tells the magazine that the two called it quits because of “too many outside pressures.”
The now-former couple met when Gary was hired as a contractor to work on the El Moussas' pool back in 2015 — at the time, Tarek had suspicions that his wife was texting another man behind his back, but didn’t have solid proof. Eventually, he caught the inappropriate texts between his wife and Gary and exploded, with a fight that ended with a gun being drawn and 911 being called.
As In Touch previously reported, seeing Christina in a new relationship when their split was so fresh was devastating— especially because of who she was dating.
“It’s hard for Tarek to see Christina dating, but it’s even worse that Gary is the guy she’s with,” an insider told In Touch, exclusively. “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.”
While it’s unclear what this means for the future of Tarek and Christina’s relationship, yesterday she appeared on Good Morning America to confirm that the exes are still working together on their reality show.
“We have so much fun on set and we look forward to continuing the show,” the mother-of-two explained. “We met at work, so we worked together before we ever started dating… It’s our normal.”
