Incident That Led to the Divorce Between The Two
On May 23, the couple had an altercation and the cops were reported of a “possibly suicidal male with a gun.” A friend of the couple said Tarek was grabbing a handgun for his safe before heading outside toward the trails. An eyewitness of the whole incident said that Tarek “run out of his back door, jump over his back fence and walk northbound into the hiking trails of the Chino Hills State Park”, reports US Weekly.
All throughout the incident, Christina was reported to be “crying and shaking”. With such shocking revelations out, one would wonder what the future of the Flip or Flop show would be. HGTV says that they want to respect the privacy of the couple. And stated that the series will continue production as scheduled.
