HGTV star Tarek El Moussa allegedly went on an angry rant about his ex-wife Christina Haack while the pair were on the set of their hit show, Flip or Flop.
As first reported by TMZ, the 39-year-old went on a verbal tirade against his former partner after learning she ‘smoked toad venom’ following her recent divorce to lessen her stress.
People also confirmed reports that the incident, which reportedly took place on July 14, allegedly began when El Moussa took issue with the way Haack, 38, signaled to him that she and the crew were ready to begin filming.
An insider told TMZ that El Moussa allegedly called Christina a ‘washed up loser’ and bragged that he ‘made’ her.
The Flipping 101 star allegedly stated: ‘Look at me, look at me, look at me. It’s called winning… The world knows you’re crazy!’
El Moussa also allegedly compared Haack to his Selling Sunset star fiancée Heather Rae Young as he bragged about her being ‘richer and hotter’ than his ex.

Following the incident, TMZ claims production shot the former couple’s scenes separately.
The hosts share daughter Taylor, 10, and five-year-old son Braydon, and Haack also has a one-year-old son with her most recent ex-husband, Ant Anstead.

Insiders told TMZ that Moussa’s alleged outburst stemmed from Haack talking on Instagram about smoking toad venom following her latest split before she met her new boyfriend Josh Hall.
El Moussa and Haack were married from 2009 to 2017 before she went on to marry TV host Ant Anstead in 2018, after her divorce was finalized.
