Stars of HGTV’s Flip or Flop, Tarek and Christina El Moussa, have split after an incident involving a gun and a suicide attempt according to reports from TMZ.
According to the report, the incident took place in May when police responded to a call about a possible male suicide with a gun at the couple’s home.
Witnesses allege that they saw Tarek run out his back door carrying a gun and run down a hiking trail near the couples home. According to the report, Christina then ran from the house crying and shaking.
A police helicopter responded to the scene and found Tarek on the trail. They told him to put down the gun. He complied, telling police deputies he had no intention of hurting himself.
After a search of the couple’s home, police seized 5 guns.
Despite the separation, the couple is committed to raising their children. “[We] will continue to work through this process civilly and cooperatively, and plan to continue our professional life together,” Christina told TMZ.
No word from HGTV on what will happen to the couple appearing on the hit show.
