TOR­MENTED BY JILTED EX

FLIP OR FLOP STAR

In Touch (USA) - - Truecrime -

Flip or Flop stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa seem to have a per­fect life. But in 2003, before the pair met and fell in love, Tarek was tor­mented, threat­ened and ha­rassed by a jilted ex-lover. And it got so bad that Tarek, now 35 and a TV star who flips houses with his wife, filed for a re­strain­ing or­der. The ex, whom Tarek had dated in high school, went bonkers af­ter he left her for an­other woman, ac­cord­ing to the court doc­u­ments ob­tained ex­clu­sively by In Touch. “For three years I get calls in the mid­dle of the night that wake me up. Some­times she doesn’t say any­thing. … Other times she will say I love you, I miss you, why do you hate me, can’t we be to­gether,” the HGTV star claimed in the pa­pers. “When I’m not get­ting these calls, she has guys call me say­ing they’re go­ing to f--- me up, key my car, jump me, shoot me etc.” Tarek also says she tried to de­stroy his life and ca­reer by telling “peo­ple aw­ful things about me that aren’t true that threat­ened my rep­u­ta­tion as a real es­tate agent.” Tarek asked the judge for his ex to “stay 100 % [sic] away from me” and to get “help from a coun­selor to get over her anger and is­sues.” The judge granted Tarek a tem­po­rary re­strain­ing or­der against the ex, but it was later dropped af­ter nei­ther party showed up in court for a fol­low-up hear­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to court pa­pers, Tarek (shown with wife Christina) ac­cused his ex of hav­ing “guys wait­ing out­side my house.”
