HGTV stars Tarek and El Moussa have made the headlines a lot over the past few months, and now the drama has spiralled into their professional lives.
According to reports, the recently split Flip or Flop hosts have now been sued for nearly $40,000 in alleged unpaid wages by a realtor who claims that the pair hired him in North Carolina to help them find homes to expand their house-flipping business.
In the lawsuit, the plaintiff is suing the El Moussa’s for $37,800 for his unpaid services when he worked for their company, Next Level Property Investments, from March 2016 to October 2016. The legal documents were filed in January and claim that the Flip or Flop hosts were “going to be filming the show Flip or Flop in North Carolina,” and hired the realtor to “find homes for them in the major cities such as Raleigh, NC.” He added that he was promised a commission of $5,000 per home and worked a total of 1,280 hours and is also entitled to “back wages in the amount of $12, 800,” as well as a total “commission amount of $25,000.”
Meanwhile a rep for both Tarek and Christina has refused to comment on the man’s lawsuit.
Despite their split, the exes have continued to work together and are celebrating the beginning of Flip or Flop‘s seventh season and are signed on for an eighth season.
