When Christina and Tarek El Moussa of HGTV's "Flip or Flop" decided to divorce in 2017, it wasn't much of a surprise; in 2016, the pair had a highly publicized dispute that led to the police getting called. Christina went on to marry British TV personality Ant Anstead, but their relationship, too, would collapse.
Christina’s official statement didn't give a concrete explanation for the split, but it did reveal that the decision wasn't an easy one. "Ant and I have made the difficult decision to separate. We are grateful for each other and as always, our children will remain our priority," Christina posted on Instagram.
News of the couple’s separation is surprising, since Christina and Ant seemed to have a happy relationship. With Christina and Tarek having multiple children together, as do Ant and his ex-wife Louise, blending families may have been too difficult, but a source claims "Christina and Ant just grew apart."
It's understandable that fans want to know what Tarek El Moussa thinks about the split. "Christina and Tarek only talk about work and the kids, they're not really friends," a source told Hollywood Life. "As the mother of his children, he wants her to be happy, but they don't discuss personal lives at all."
