In an Instagram post and corresponding Instagram story the Flip or Flop star called out "fake media" outlets for reporting that he's "devastated" by the news of his ex wife's recent wedding, and opened up to fans about how he really feels now that Christina is remarried.
"I am actually happy for her. I think it's a great thing, I think they get along well. And most importantly it's good for my children," he says after explaining that he was advised by publicists not to comment on the subject. Tarek goes on to say that he is very happy with his own life, and continues to reiterate the positive effect Christina's new marriage will have on their children, saying, "I'm that glad she found someone. It's a good thing, it's a positive thing. I'm not the type that wants to fight with her for the rest of my life, and make my kids miserable. The truth is, everything we do is about the kids and at the end of the day my kids are going to have a stable household and she's going to have help and that's exactly what they need. So I want to let everybody know I'm not devastated, I'm not heart-broken, I'm not upset. I'm actually really happy for her and I'm happy for Ant and most importantly I'm happy for my kids, because guess what? They're going to have a nice stable household and really at the end of the day it's about them and I'm just very, very happy."
Tarek's response comes just a few weeks after Christina and Ant tied the knot in a surprise ceremony at their home in Newport Beach, California. Christina and Tarek were married for seven years and filed for divorce in January of 2016.
