Tarek El Moussa is requesting spousal support from his estranged wife, Christina, ET confirms.
In court documents obtained by ET, the Flip or Flop star has asked that Christina pay him spousal support, and that the court's ability to award alimony to her be terminated. Tarek is also requesting that Christina pay for his attorney's fees.
In the divorce petition he filed on Monday at the Orange County Superior Court, Tarek also asks for joint legal and physical custody of his and Christina's two children, 6-year-old daughter Taylor and 1-year-old son Brayden.
ET has reached out to Tarek's attorney and rep for comment.
Tarek and Christina announced their separation one month ago, in December, where they revealed that they had broken up after a heated fight that led to the police being called to their Orange County, California, home in May.
"Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage," they said in a joint statement to ET at the time. "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."
