Christina El Moussa Is Reportedly Dating Doug Spedding, But ‘Flip Or Flop’ Star’s Boyfriend Has An Ugly Past

Christina El Moussa is reportedly dating a new fella by the name of Doug Spedding. And while she may be thrilled with her new relationship, her new flame has some skeletons in his closet, to say the least.

As In Touch Weekly reported last week, Christina has taken up with businessman Doug Spedding. As it turns out, her latest beau, after brief flings with pool contractor Gary Anderson and NHL player Nate Thompson, is someone from Christina’s own past. The two had been in a relationship years ago before she and Tarek had even met.

It’s not clear, as of this writing, what sort of business Mr. Spedding is in. A LinkedIn account bearing his name, with a location of Santa Ana, California (which is where Tarek and Christina lived), indicates that he’s a “Managing Member” but offers no details on where he’s employed or what his job actually is. There’s no photo. He does not appear to have a Twitter or Instagram account.

A Google search for his name reveals that a man named Doug Spedding was a co-owner of a failed Denver football franchise back in the mid-1980s; however, that man would be considerably older than Christina, who was born in 1983, so it’s probably not him.

If information about who Doug Spedding is remains elusive, one thing that he can’t keep out of the public eye is his criminal history. And In Touch Weekly dug up some rather alarming facts about Doug’s past that Christina should probably be aware of.

For example, in October of 2010, Spedding was hit with a protective order following felony domestic violence charges. And although who requested the order and for what reason remains secret (these things are sealed and are not considered public information), court records reveal that he violated that order on at least five occasions.

In July of 2011, Spedding was charged with felony drug possession and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. He completed a diversion program and all charges against him were dropped.

If his past legal shenanigans aren’t enough to give Christina pause about her new guy, here’s something else: a woman named Tracy Diaz claims she’s also dating Mr. Spedding.

“I’ve been seeing Doug for almost four years. He hasn’t officially ended our relationship. He was just with me three days ago!”

Clearly, Christina’s new guy has some issues that need to be sorted out. She might want to start looking somewhere else.
