'Flip or Flop' stars Tarek, Christina El Moussa dish on split

'Flip or Flop' stars Tarek, Christina El Moussa dish on split

The El Moussas first addressed their split last December, telling ABC News in a statement at the time that they had experienced "challenges in their marriage".

However, as Christina told GMA, that's simply not true.

"It's honestly going really good", said Christina. But we went through a lot in a short amount of time ...

"We weren't able to properly communicate anymore", she continued. "I didn't understand. It got really blown out of proportion", Tarek said. They chose to call it quits but remained committed to co-parenting their kids. Christina said that things are going well, and that both of the children are happy. "I was overwhelmed. The tension between me and Tarek was high..."

Both Christina and Tarek have been dating other people since their breakup.

On Monday, a federal judge opened the door for a government lawsuit to peddle its way to trial. US District Judge Christopher Cooper ruled on Monday, that the case must be decided by a jury .

Watch Tarek's interview on Today below and watch Christina's interview at the top of the page. The 35-year-old joined the TODAY show on Tuesday morning to reveal that he was diagnosed with testicular cancer only weeks after his thyroid cancer diagnosis back in 2013. The HGTV personality wrote in the caption that filming the show's new season "has been a breeze".

But Tarek spent much of the interview talking about his split. "They're working together on set". Tarek claims that he and Christina live in an area where there is a lot of wildlife - including mountain lions - and when he was going out for a walk, he needed the protection that a gun would have provided. We tried counseling; it just really wasn't working.

"The number one goal is to coparent our children and we have to make sure we remain friendly", said Tarek, "because we know how it important it is for them to have good parents". Together they overcame infertility and Tarek's battle with thyroid cancer during their marriage. Tarek has been linked to several women since the split, including the family nanny, Alyssa Logan.

Flip or Flop star Tarek El Moussa has spoken out about his battle with having testicular and thyroid cancer at the same time. And Taylor and Brayden are their first priority. While the stars of the HGTV series "Flip or Flop" have insisted that their impending divorce will not affect the show it seems that is not the case. Christina has since been linked to contractor Gary Anderson. Rumors hinted that Tarek found inappropriate texts on Christina's cell phone which lead him to leaving the home visibly upset with a gun.
