Flip or Flop stars Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa stunned fans with their split announcement on Monday — and now In Touch has exclusively obtained the court documents which detail the incident that led to the demise of their marriage.
It was reported earlier today that officials arrived to their home in May while responding to “a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun.”
“At the scene, Deputy Sandoval made contact with a witness, Gary Anderson, who relayed that he was working at the house next door when he saw Tarek El Moussa run out of his back door, jump over his back fence and walk northbound into the hiking tails of the Chino Hills State Park. Then the informant, Christina El Moussa, came running to the residence and she was crying and shaking. She told him Tarek took a handgun, put it in his back pack and ran outside. She said she already called 911,” they read.
The documents elsewhere state that “Deputies then spoke with the informant, Christina El Moussa, who related that she received a call from her friend at about 3:30 p.m. The friend was in Christina’s bedroom and saw Tarek take a handgun from the gun safe, place it in his backpack and leave the room. She asked him what he was doing but he did not answer. Christina stated that Tarek did not make any threatening statements to her and he did not make any comments about hurting himself or anyone else. She also denied that Tarek had ever been suicidal.”
Tarek then surrendered his firearms to safekeeping for 30 days.
“[We] will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together,” the former couple said in a statement.
They are also parents to two children, daughter Taylor and son Brayden.
