“Flip or Flop” stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa finalized their divorce after over a year of separation. A rep for the couple confirmed the news to Entertainment Tonight on Monday.
The reality stars announced their split in December 2016, months after they got into a heated fight at their California home, as Dearly previously reported.
Authorities were called to the home after they got “a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun,” who turned out to be Tarek.
Once news of the marriage’s end broke on Monday, the former couple shared their reactions on social media. And they seemed to subtly take aim at each other…Tarek El Moussa/Instagram
Mother of two Christina took to Instagram to share a message of support and positivity with her fans. But the focus was moving on from “negativity” in life.
The 34-year-old posted an image of a sunset, along with an inspirational quote:Christina El Moussa/Instagram
She captioned the post:
I want to thank my family, friends, and supporters for all the love and kind words the past few years. Officially ready for the next chapter. Life’s too short to tolerate negativity…
Tarek also posted a message about moving on to his own Instagram.
The dad posted an image of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson along with some harsh words about distancing yourself from people that “lie” and “disrespect” you:Tarek El Moussa/Instagram
The “Flip or Flop” star wrote:
I saw this on my feed and thought “Wow, what a true statement”..So I thought I would share the Rock’s thoughts with hundreds of thousands of people. Question- who out there has dealt or is dealing with points 1 through 4? The best way to take care of others is to first take care of yourself!! Happy Monday.
The former married couple never addressed each other by name in their post-divorce messages, but the timing seemed to be enough to convince fans.
Despite the fact that they just finalized their divorce, Christina has long moved on from her ex-husband. She’s now dating British TV’s “Wheelers and Dealers” star Ant Anstead, according to earlier reports.
It’s unclear if Tarek has a new romantic interest since the split. But based on his recent post, he seems ready to move on.
