Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa are having a tough month, after announcing their plans to separate on Dec. 12 after seven years of marriage — and now a new report claims this is not the Flip or Flop stars' only source of legal drama.
According to court docs obtained by Radar Online, their Next Level Property Investments LLC business partner Pete de Best sued cabinet maker Dean R. Schaeffer in 2013 after allegedly wiring him $7,000 for products, though “the cabinets were never delivered to the home [they] hired him for.” They sued for $5,000 though the case was allegedly dismissed because of failure to fill out forms correctly.
In Touch previously reported the couple decided to end their relationship after an "unfortunate incident" that took place in May at their home, when police responded to "a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun."
"At the scene, Deputy Sandoval made contact with a witness, [Christina's alleged new boyfriend] 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," the court docs read.
They also read 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."
The HGTV stars have two children together — daughter Taylor and son Brayden.
