Legal documents obtained by TMZ state that El Moussa cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for ending the marriage. He's seeking joint custody of their two children as well as spousal support, with a clause that will allow him to block any attempt from Christina to collect spousal support from him.
Despite all this, a source close to the couple told TMZ that they're being as civil as possible, which they have to be "if they want to continue monetizing what they do."
The HGTV renovation show is still in production, but it's set to end once the El Moussas' contractual obligations are fulfilled.
The El Moussas separated last year after an incident in which police were called to their home, when Tarek left the house with his gun after a fight.
