El Moussa was previously involved with contractor Gary Anderson, TMZ reported.
Anderson, who according to TMZ sources has worked for the El Moussas, was reportedly present during the May 2016 incident when Christina’s now-estranged husband, Tarek El Moussa, bolted from their home with a gun in his possession.
On Wednesday, Us Weekly reported that Christina El Moussa and Anderson had split “because of too many outside pressures.”
The El Moussas announced their split after seven years of marriage in a statement to People in December, acknowledging, “Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage … 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.”
According to the couple, they broke up following a May incident during which law enforcement responded to a call of a “possibly suicidal male with a gun.” The call was made after Tarek retrieved a gun from a safe in the couple’s Orange County, California, home and wandered into nearby Chino Hills State Park.
