The Biggest HGTV Scandals Of All Time
Years before her current relationship drama, Christina Anstead (then El Moussa) was involved in a very dramatic separation and eventual divorce. In December 2016, the famous HGTV couple from Flip Or Flop announced via People that they were splitting after seven years of marriage. As if that news alone wasn’t enough to rock fans of the seemingly perfect pair, months earlier, police were called to the El Moussa home in Orange County, California in response to a “possibly suicidal male with a gun," TMZ reported.
According to the news, “Witnesses told cops they saw Tarek grab a gun from his safe, run out the back door, and flee down a hiking trail.” The couple addressed this incident in their statement to People, and cited it as the reason for the split. “Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage. We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed," they stated.
