The devastating news of the separation of HGTV's "Flip or Flop" hosts, Tarek and Christina El Moussa, comes seven months after an altercation in which Christina El Moussa says her husband, Tarek, flipped out and police were called to their California home.
Witnesses said Tarek fled the house wielding a semi-automatic rifle. When he surrendered, he told police he just wanted to blow off steam. It took 11 deputies and a police helicopter to restore calm to the couple's home.
Following the incident in May, the pair announced they are calling it quits.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the couple and their children as they navigate through this difficult season.
