Tarek and Christina announced their split on December 12 following Tarek's near suicide attempt. Radar obtained the scary Orange County Sheriff Department's incident report, and can exclusively reveal that he ran into a local park with a gun to "blow off some steam" in late May. The couple revealed that they attended therapy together after, but felt it was best to split.

HGTV revealed to Radar that they intend to keep airing Flip or Flop despite the split. "When it comes to matters related to their own family, we respect their privacy and honor any decision that works best for them and their children," they added in a statement.

The couple married in 2009, but didn't have any newlywed bliss! Their joint business immediately flopped, and they told a local news outlet that they were forced to share Subway sandwiches and rent an apartment while Christina was pregnant with their daughter Taylor, now 6.

Then, Tarek, 35, was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2013 after a fan spotted a lump on his throat. His doctors originally thought his heavy smoking caused the lump.

Christina, 33, then underwent two rounds of IVF treatment to conceive their son Brayden, 1. The couple even suffered a miscarriage before welcoming their baby boy.

Their family car was stolen from a Flip or Flop home as well. "The episode where it was stolen was filmed over a year ago. The person who stole it took it for a week joy ride and dumped it at a Walgreens. The alignment was super off and it never rode the same after," Christina explained.
