Tarek El Moussa Allegedly Flips Out on Ex-Wife Christina Haack on the ‘Flip or Flop’ Set, Calling Her a “Washed-Up Loser” & Comparing Her to His Fiancé Heather Rae Young

It’s a shame the name Flipping Out was previously used…

Despite divorcing in 2018, Tarek El Moussa and Christina Haack continue to work side-by-side on their HGTV series Flip or Flop, though apparently the exes still struggle when it comes to playing nice off-camera. 

Sources close to the show told TMZ that Tarek flipped out on his ex-wife last Wednesday on-set after Christina let him know it was time to film. 

Tarek was reportedly bothered by the way in which Christina signaled to him that she and the crew were ready to begin shooting. In repose, Tarek reportedly launched a verbal rant at Christina, allegedly at one point comparing her to his fiancée, Heather Rae Young, telling his ex-wife that the Selling Sunset star is hotter and richer than her. 

The insults didn’t stop there… 

Sources told the outlet that Tarek boasted that he “made” Christina, called her a “washed-up loser,” and said he enjoys watching her fail. He also allegedly yelled “Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning” and screamed “The world knows you’re crazy!” – ya know… just for fun. 

” …and a really angry one at that.”

While this on-set screaming session sounds messier than all of the houses Tarek and Christina have remodeled throughout the years put together, sources claim this isn’t the first time Tarek has went on a tirade against his ex-wife on the ‘Flip or Flop’ set. Following the last incident, production reportedly stop filming the exes together for the rest of the day, forcing the two to shoot their scenes separately. 

TMZ reports that Tarek’s anger toward Christina stems from her recently admitting that she smoked toad venom before meeting her new boyfriend, Austin-based realtor Joshua Hall. The confession has left Tarek concerned for the safety of his and Christina’s two children. 

Christina and Tarek were married for nearly 10 years before splitting in 2018.

Christina went on to marry Ant Anstead, with whom she shares a son. The two divorced in September after less than two years of marriage. 

Tarek and Heather became engaged in July 2020 on their one-year anniversary. 

Tarek has yet to comment publicly on the story of his alleged screaming rant against his ex-wife.

  1. Looks like they are competing, posting those BS happy,love of my life, happiest day of my life pictures with their new partners. He is an asshole,if he talks to her on set ,i cant imagine how he treats her in private. She isnt perfect either,seens like the kind of person that cant be alone,that needs someone,and it doesnt matter if that person is good or bad. They have kids,both should know better. No more shows together


  2. Sounds like a huge mid life crisis. He’s dating a look alike and has an erratic past. She left her seemingly nice husband to smoke toad venom. Winners all around.


  3. I’m not a fan of either, but him telling her the world knows that’s she crazy sure is interesting given his whole gun incident and that it appears he was ranting wildly at her without mention of her responding.


  4. Heather, your better pack your bags and run for it. Tarek has shown time and time again that he is unstable.


  5. Oof. If this is what he does in front of other people AND cameras, imagine what goes on behind closed doors! Also, a GOOD father will treat the mother of his children with respect, no matter what. His kids are going to read all this someday.

    Now, Christina—Toad Venom, really?? That doesn’t seem like a wise choice for a mother of young children.


  6. Jeez what an abusive jerk. Also can she stop getting married after barely dating someone or does she just love getting divorced?


  7. He’s gross. His outburst shows how insecure he really is. I like her waaaayyyyy more than I could ever like him.


  8. He’s always seemed like a total douchebag but the way he’s holding onto his daughter in that IG pic above really pisses me off. She’s not five. He needs to be mindful of where his hand goes.


    1. You’re one of those people who think we should ask permission to change our kids dirty diapers like that insane Australian daycare where I’m assuming diaper rash is an actual epidemic aren’t you? Please, stay the hell away from children. The fact that you can look at that picture and see something dirty tells me a lot about you. Like I wouldn’t want my kids within a mile radius of your nasty ass because something is clearly wrong with you and you’re projecting. Aren’t the Duggars careful in their touching with sidehugs and no hand holding…and look at their oldest son. Predator, plain and simple.
