Christina El Moussa’s new man left his wife while she was six months pregnant with their first child, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
The Flip or Flop star's boyfriend, Nate Thompson, filed for divorce from Cristin Moira Thompson (now Stuart) on February 27, 2015 — just three months before their son Teague was born on May 18.
The hockey star and the former barre instructor married on July 19, 2013, but separated on February 13, 2015.
He asked for joint legal and physical custody of “Unborn Baby Thompson” in the explosive filing obtained by Radar, and reported that he would pay his ex spousal support as well.
But, he requested that she pay her own attorney’s fees. Cristin fired back in her response that he should pay for both of their lawyers. Cristin, now 31, reported that she was unemployed at the time of their spilt, while Nate, now 32, submitted paperwork indicating that he made $133,333 per month (a base salary of $1.6 million) playing for the Anaheim Ducks.
A judge signed off on their divorce on May 24, 2016, while their custody agreement was made in another court.
Nate was ordered to pay Cristin $25,250 per month in spousal support from December 1, 2015 until September 1, 2016. Afterwards, her “right to ask for support payments is cut off forever, as is the power of any court to order support payments, and the right to receive support payments regardless of whether an extension of support is petitioned for.”
Instead, he was ordered to pay her $184,159.55 to "equalize the division of community property." He also paid her lawyer a lump sum of $20,000.
Cristin was awarded “all furniture, furnishings and household items” currently in her possession, and “all bank, savings, checking, credit union, money market or the like accounts” in her name — totaling a whopping $311,779.
Meanwhile, Nate got to keep all of his possessions, his bank accounts valued at $296,290, his life insurance policy valued at $171,365.29, and his NHL savings and retirement plans, valued at $45,804.23. He got to keep the profits from their Tampa home sale for himself, too.
Nate was awarded custody of their dog, Diesel, as well.
Shockingly, the couple had several embryos created through in vitro fertilization, kept safe in a storage unit. They were ordered to take the necessary steps to destroy those within two days of their judgment. It is unknown how many embryos they created and destroyed.
Less than a year later, Nate began dating Christina. She had been dating her rebound romance, Gary Anderson, after her husband, Tarek, filed for divorce in January.
Tarek was recently spotted at an Anaheim Ducks game, cheering on Nate!
