Tarek & Christina El Moussa Explain Gun Incident That Led to Split

HGTV stars Christina and Tarek El Moussa are opening up about their May 23 split, and the scary gun incident that happened on that day.

Initial reports said police responded to “a call of a possibly suicidal male with a gun,” TMZ said.

The couple is now opening up to People, saying that Tarek‘s “intentions were misread.”

Christina, 33, called police after Tarek left their house with a gun in his bag, hopped a fence, and headed into the Chino Hills State Park. Police and helicopters went to search for him, and when he was found, he complied with their requests.

Tarek, 35, turned his gun collection over to police. “Tarek was going on a hike and took a gun for protection from mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes and rattlesnakes,” they explained.

“We have both dated other people following the separation, but neither of us is ready to announce anything in terms of another relationship,” they added about their split.
