Tarek El Moussa: I Still Love Christina!
The Flip or Flop star is seething that his ex has moved on.
THEY found love and fame flipping houses, but in the wake of Christina El Moussa’s surprise “winter wonderland” wedding to Ant Anstead on Dec. 22, sources spill that ex-hubby Tarek El Moussa is flipping out! “Tarek is more upset than he’s letting on,” Star’s insider sighs. “His friends are keeping a close watch on him lest he try something stupid. Tarek is a sensitive, often unstable guy, and he hasn’t had a steady girlfriend since the divorce.” Christina, 35, and Tarek, 37, were married for seven years and have two children together — Taylor, 8, and Brayden, 3 — and costarred in the hit HGTV show Flip or Flop. But in 2016, it all fell apart with a traumatic incident that involved Christina calling the police and Tarek running into the woods with a gun, seemingly suicidal. Their divorce was finalized in early 2018, after Christina began dating the hunky 39-year-old British TV host in fall of 2017. Insiders say that since then, Tarek — who has also battled cancer twice since 2013 — has been lamenting the loneliness of the single life, and now friends are extremely concerned about how he’ll take the news of his ex-wife’s new marriage. “Seeing Christina move on so swiftly and playing happy family with Ant and the kids is like a knife to the heart for Tarek,” a family friend confides. “Even worse, Christina has changed her last name to Anstead. He still loves her and always hoped they’d reconcile. That’s not going to happen now. Tarek’s had a string of bad health luck lately, now the fear is that this could push him over the edge. His friends are begging him to get back into therapy.”
Seeing Christina so in love with Ant is too much for Tarek to bear, pals say.
