9. Incident in May
After news broke of their split, Tarek and Christina El Moussa released a statement to People that cited an “unfortunate misunderstanding about six months ago and the police were called to [their] house in an abundance of caution.” They added that no charges were filed and there was no violence involved. According to officials, 11 police officers showed up in response to a possible “suicidal male with a gun.” Witnesses said they saw Christina run from the house “crying and shaking” and Tarek grab a handgun from the safe, put it in his back pocket and flee onto some trails behind their house. Christina was the one who placed the call to 911 and when officers learned Tarek was on public hiking trails with a gun, they called in for helicopter assistance. When he was located and brought back in, he said he was not suicidal and had no intent of hurting someone, but simply wanted to blow off some steam.
