What was the reason behind their split?

According to TMZ, back in May of 2016, a scary incident took place in the house of Tarek and Christina involving gunshots.

Their neighbors reported, "a suicidal male with a gun running in the block" which resulted the entire California Police Department, including Deputy to show up at the couple's house in the middle a night.

Details of the report revealed that the witness saw Tarek leaving his home with a gun in a hand, shouting and Christina who was crying was following Tarek in the middle of the night.

When police arrived, the duo hid the matters calling it only a "big misunderstanding" but the truth is yet to be revealed.

This incident became the sole reason for couple split up and eventually after that the couple stopped living together and got on with their lives separately.

When their divorced was confirmed, the pair made a statement with People Magazine, saying:

"Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage. We had an unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to our house in an abundance of caution. There was no violence and no charges were filed."

What about their kids?

Married in 2009, the El Moussas have two wonderful kids together: a 6-year-old daughter named Taylor and 1-year-old son Brayden.


Though the couple faced horrible divorce, they told TMZ, that they're committed to co-parenting and will continue to work through this civilly and co-operatively and also has planned to continue their professional life together.
