“Flip or Flop” Star Tarek El Moussa Buys New Home After Split From Christina: “Things Are Meant To Be”


Exciting news for HGTV’s Tarek El Moussa! After divorcing from his wife and “Flip or Flop” co-host Christina El Moussa, Tarek has bought his own place.

“I’m am so excited for my “new beginnings”… sometimes things are meant to be,” he shared in an Instagram post. “I wasn’t looking for a house nor was I looking in Costa Mesa. I was randomly driving down a street and saw this place and I knew it was the one! Within hours I was writing an offer and negotiating the deal…the lesson…if you want something go get it, go after it and never quit! This relates to life in general..if there is something you want take action!!! My babies finally get a home with daddy!!!”

The day following his divorce from Christina, Tarek shared a series of hand-written notes on his Instagram about his experience. “Life is a series of ups and downs and there is nothing we can do about it,” the note read. “When you are on a ‘high’ you feel nothing but happiness and positivity, and on the flip side, no pun intended, when you are on a ‘low,’ you forget what that high feeling felt like. When you experience a ‘low,’ understand it is a feeling and not your reality.”

Tarek and Christina split up in December of 2016 after a dramatic incident involving a 911 call, and they’ve been separated since. They have two kids together– a daughter, Taylor, and a son, Brayden.
