Soon-to-be exes Tarek and Christina El Moussa put on a happy face Friday when they made their first public appearance together since the HGTV “Flip or Flop” stars announced their divorce.
“Me and #christina on the #big #stage having #fun and teaching folks how to #flip #houses!! #goodtimes #lovespeakingtogether,” Tarek captioned the photo, which shows him and his estranged wife smiling and holding microphones on a stage.
Their appearance at the 2017 Investor Summit in Las Vegas could be a sign of hope for the home improvement show that they host together, which HGTV says will continue to film as scheduled despite the couple’s breakup.
Tarek El Moussa filed for divorce from Christina in January, after the couple announced their split in December.
According to the El Moussas, they broke up following a May incident during which law enforcement responded to a call of a “possibly suicidal male with a gun.” The call was made after Tarek retrieved a gun from the couple’s Orange County, California, home and wandered into nearby Chino Hills State Park.
Tarek told deputies that he headed to the park to “blow off some steam,” and that he brought the gun with him as protection against mountain lions and rattlesnakes.
According to paperwork obtained by TheWrap from the Orange County Sheriff’s Department, Christina El Moussa “was crying and shaking” during the incident.
The couple has acknowledged that they have been dating other people since the split, with Christina reportedly taking up with Gary Anderson, a contractor who worked on flipping houses with the couple, according to TMZ. Anderson was reportedly a witness to the gun incident.
The El Moussas, who wed in 2009, have two children, daughter Taylor and son Brayden.
“Flip or Flop,” which premiered in 2013, revolves around the El Moussas, real estate agents who buy distressed properties and renovate them.
In a statement to TheWrap, HGTV, which airs the series, said that the show “will continue production as scheduled.”
