Fans of the HGTV series Flip or Flop were stunned when Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa decided to split — especially after Christina was accused of having an affair with contractor Gary Anderson during their marriage.

Despite rumors, Christina’s rep completely denies any disloyalty on her part. However, a source previously revealed to In Touch that she was caught texting her now ex-boyfriend while with Tarek.

“Christina grew close to Gary. Tarek was suspicious that she was getting involved with someone but had no concrete evidence,” said the insider. “Tarek saw Christina’s phone and [believed] there was some inappropriate texting going on between Christina and Gary.”

Gary was also present during what the former couple refers to as an “unfortunate misunderstanding” back in May — when Tarek allegedly left their home with a handgun and was believed to be suicidal.

“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,” read court docs exclusively obtained by In Touch.

Last month, it was alleged that “too many outside pressures” caused Christina and Gary’s relationship to crumble — however, the contractor claimed he found out about their split in a magazine.

“He was heartbroken and blindsided,” a source exclusively revealed to In Touch. “She just used him to get over Tarek. Then she cut off all communication with Gary.”
