The dissolution of Flip Or Flop stars Tarek and Christina El Moussa‘s marriage has been both dramatic and messy.
And it seems as though one person had a front row seat to all of the drama — specifically, the twosome’s professional acquaintance Gary Anderson. According to TMZ, the contractor was there when the El Moussas had an explosive fight which resulted in Tarek heading down a hiking trail with a gun.
When 11 police officers showed up over a call about a “possibly suicidal male with a gun,” it was reportedly Gary who informed the cops where the HGTV star ran off to with his weapon. Anderson also dished to the police that it was Christina who told him about Tarek having taken the gun with him. Huh.
What’s inneresting about this factoid is Mr. Anderson then started DATING the reality TV personality months after the incident! Anyone else find this fishy?
While Gary has done work for the El Moussas in the past, the cops claim Anderson was at the former flames’ neighbor’s house when everything went down. Well that would explain why there was a misunderstanding over why Tarek was carrying a weapon on the hiking trail.
As we previously reported, the estranged couple have since clarified that Tarek brought the gun with him as “protection from mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and rattlesnakes.” Right, sure.
Not to mention, we doubt Christina’s romance with Gary was very serious as she and her estranged husband both said they’ve dated since separating but there’s nothing worth mentioning. Ouch!
Life is clearly moving forward for the home improvement stars, as on Wednesday, Tarek returned to Instagram (below) for the first time since his split made headlines.

We’re glad to see they’re putting their kids first. For their little ones’ sake, we hope Tarek and Christina can maintain a cordial relationship.
