Why did Christina Haack call Tarek El Moussa an 'absolute pig'? Inside 'Flip or Flop' hosts' rocky relationship
Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack might be able to successfully host a show together and are able to co-parent their two children without any hitch, but that wasn't always the case. When the HGTV hosts split up in 2016, things were very rocky between them.
According to reports, Christina used to reportedly avoid Tarek while they weren't filming for their hit show 'Flip or Flop'. To Christina's credit, her ex-husband would reportedly go out of his way to annoy her. He would allegedly brag about hooking up with young girls while his ex-wife was within hearing range. Needless to say, Christina was very frustrated with her ex-husband at one point. So, during an interview, a source close to the 'Christina on the Coast' hostess revealed that she considered her ex-husband to be an 'absolute pig'. Read on to know why the 37-year-old called Tarek an 'absolute pig'.
Why did Christina Haack call Tarek El Moussa an 'absolute pig'?
These days Tarek might be head over heels in love with his fiancee Heather Rae Young, but back in the day following his divorce from Christina, the HGTV host allegedly had a string of flings with young girls. A source close to the couple revealed to Us Weekly how Tarek would brag about his hookups while Christina was around. The source said, "The mood differs day to day, but Christina avoids Tarek, he does things to piss her off, like bragging loudly about sleeping with girls."
Following their split, Tarek reportedly immediately began seeing one of his children's former nannies named Alyssa Logan. Alyssa, who was at that time just 23, reportedly caught Tarek's eye while they were partying on his yacht. He then hired her as his children's nanny just to get close to her. He later fired her, so that they could begin dating. The publication also revealed that the HGTV host showered Alyssa with extravagant gifts like a Jeep, and taking her on trips aboard his private jet. "Tarek blows money in order to impress people," claimed the source.
Unfortunately, his fling with Alyssa was very short-lived, as he soon moved on to dating her friend. When Christina heard about Tarek's dating stories she reportedly felt that her husband was an 'absolute pig'. Christina reportedly learned about his flings through another nanny working for them but decided to not make a huge deal about it as she felt that the children should be the focus. The source told the publication, "The kids are all she (Christina) cares about, and Alyssa was good with them." Christina was also reportedly very sure that the fling wouldn't last for too long, a hunch that proved to be right since he began dating Alyssa's friend shortly.
But all that seems to be in past, for Tarek has turned a new chapter in his life and is in a happy and healthy relationship with 'Selling Sunset' star Heather Rae Young, while also maintaining an excellent co-parenting and working relationship with Christina.
Part 2 of 'Flip Flop' featuring Episodes 11 to 15 will premiere on Thursday, April 29, 2021, at 9 pm ET only on HGTV.
