Christina El Moussa recently opened up about how necessary it was for her to move on from her ex-husband and “Flip or Flop” co-star Tarek El Moussa.
The mother of two has found love in the arms of businessman Doug Spedding, whom she believes came into her life because of fate. She told People:
“I’m very spiritual, and I believe in things happening for a reason. It just felt right.”
Though it seems that fate may have been keeping some secrets from the newly divorced mother.
According to InTouch, while El Moussa gears up for the next season of her HGTV program, Spedding is spending his evenings with the company of another lover. This mysterious, alleged other girlfriend — Tracy Diaz — came forward to give the gossip mag the real scoop into this bizarre love triangle.
Diaz confessed to InTouch that she and Spedding have been in a relationship for several years now:
“I’ve been seeing Doug for almost four years. He hasn’t officially ended our relationship. He was just with me three days ago!”
InTouch reported that Diaz and Spedding coupled up sometime in 2012 after he left the mother of his children. It’s unclear whenever the pair agreed to a monogamous relationship, or if Spedding stepped out on Diaz when he began his public relationship with El Moussa.
Curiously enough, Spedding and El Moussa were last seen together vacationing on a boat trip with both of their families. A source told People that the pair was attempting to combine its motley crew of families together:
“Their children are only a few years apart, so they’ve been doing a lot of activities with the kids: ice skating, swimming, BBQs, just low-key stuff at home.
Diaz suggested Spedding would like to have his cake and eat it too, adding “[Doug] really likes Christina, but obviously he’s not being loyal.”
Hopefully, this mess is something El Moussa can rebuild from going forward.
