On Wednesday, Tarek el Moussa wanted to make sure everyone knew what’s up.
According to a report, Tarek has been acting out of line with his former wife Christina el Moussa going so far as to even call her a “whore.”
It furthermore claimed that the two have hired separate publicists – Howard Bragman represents Tarek, while Cassie Zebisch represents Christina. The statement was later confirmed by E! News.
But many of the claims in the magazine article were not received very well by Tarek.
For instance, according to a source, Tarek “found humor in insulting his wife in repeated verbal attacks. Some of his bad behavior was even caught on camera.” Flip or Flop crew members were not surprised by his alleged attacks. “He said things like that all the time and then laughed about it,” claimed an insider. “Tarek treated Christina like garbage.”
After some time, Tarek decided that it was time to comment on the allegations, posting on his Instagram account the following message, denying everything.
“No matter the lies, innuendo, salacious gossip and ‘fake news’ that is thrown at me from irresponsible media outlets via anonymous sources, I will keep my focus on what matters most, which is co-parenting our children and working hard on our business.”
On the other hand, Christina “is overwhelmed by life without her husband and is working hard to keep it all together after their split.” After Tarek moved out of their shared house, his ex “has been leaning on a small team of nannies who help her with their two small kids as she juggles business obligations and managing the household.”
The El Moussas announced their split on December 12 after 7 years of being married. The two have two children together.
The separation was generally blamed on an incident that happened a month earlier.
The exes claimed the domestic incident, in which the police got involved was in fact a “misunderstanding,” as Tarek went hiking “and took a gun for protection from mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and rattlesnakes.”
