Tarek El Moussa took a break from all the drama surrounding his split from wife Christina to spend some time with his 6-year-old daughter, Taylor.
The Flip or Flop star joined his friend, Robert Drenk, and his two daughters for a play date on Thursday night and posted a photo to Instagram from the excursion. "Two #dads, three #daughters and a pink jeep!! Hashtag#dadlife!!" Tarek captioned the photo of himself with the girls. "Me and @robertdrenk have so much #fun with our #girls! It's nice to find another #amazing #dad to share our fun with!"
The father-daughter outing comes after Tarek slammed the media for spreading lies about his separation from Christina in a prior Instagram post. The 35-year-old reality star bashed "innuendo" and "salacious gossip" from "irresponsible media outlets" in a post on Wednesday, after In Touch alleged in a report that he had exhibited "inappropriate, vulgar behavior" toward his wife -- including referring to her as a "whore" -- on the set of their HGTV show.
"No matter the lies, innuendo, salacious gossip and 'fake news' that is thrown at me from irresponsible media outlets via anonymous sources, I will keep my focus on what matters most which is co-parenting our children and working hard on our business," Tarek wrote.
Court documents obtained by ET earlier this month show that Tarek is requesting joint legal and physical custody of Taylor and 1-year-old son Brayden in his divorce petition, but is requesting spousal support from Christina. Tarek is also asking that Christina pay his attorney's fees, and that the court terminate its ability to award alimony to her.
