'I Regret It'

HGTV Star Tarek El Moussa Blames Fame For Why His Marriage Failed

The couple announced the split in December.

Tarek El Moussa sat down with the panel of physicians on The Doctors and spoke openly about his not only his battle with two different types of cancers but his failed marriage.

The Flip Or Flop star admitted, “I feel like if we had better communication, we would have had a better relationship. I think as time went on, as you get busier and busier. It was like overnight: businesses, TV, all these things happened overnight, then the cancer, then the cancer, and the back surgery. It just kind of started pushing us apart from each other.”

The couple was married for seven years and have two children.

Tarek added that having the cameras around wasn’t ideal. “I would be lying if I said it was easy. But like anything, there’s ups and downs and you have challenges, but at the end of the day, we’re just normal people. What’s most important is the family and the kids. It’s really important that we stayed positive,” he said.
