Watch out, tabloids; Tarek El Moussa has you covered.
“Flip or Flop” star El Moussa had some fun with the tabloid coverage that he and his co-star/estranged wife Christina El Moussa have been receiving lately, jokingly declaring himself “offended” and “heartbroken.”
But not like that.
The reality show host hit up Instagram on Monday to post a picture of a newsstand rack holding magazines such as People and In Touch that bore cover stories on the El Moussas.
One magazine, however, failed to give him the attention he apparently believes he deserves.
“I am so #OFFENDED!!!!!!!!!!” he wrote. “I can’t believe we didn’t make #Cosmo magazine!!! So heartbroken.”
El Moussa has previously tackled the press coverage that he and Christina have received since announcing their divorce in December, albeit with less humor.
In January, he took aim at the “irresponsible media,” accusing it of spreading “fake news” about the estranged couple.
“No matter the lies, innuendo, salacious gossip and ‘fake news’ that is thrown at me from irresponsible media outlets via anonymous sources, I will focus on what matters most which is co-parenting our children and working hard on our business,” El Moussa wrote at the time.
The couple first announced the split on Dec. 12, saying their decision to end their relationship largely stemmed from a domestic incident this past May that involved a gun and resulted in Orange County police getting involved.
The O.C. Sheriff’s Dept. told TheWrap that Christina El Moussa was “crying and shaking” during the incident, while her husband was seen by witnesses to “run out of his back door, jump over his fence and walk northbound into the hiking trails of the Chino Hills State Park.”
The couple told officials that Tarek El Moussa had not made any threats during the incident and was not suicidal, though he did agree to relinquish his firearms for 30 days.
“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” the couple’s statement to People read. “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.”
HGTV said in a statement at the time of their announced separation last month that they planned to continue to work with the El Moussas and that production of “Flip or Flop” would continue as scheduled.
