One of HGTV’s most popular couples are now a house divided.

Tarek and Christina El Moussa have reportedly split after seven years of marriage.

The couple are the stars of HGTV’s “Flip or Flop” and married in 2009.

“Like many couples, we have had challenges in our marriage,” the pair said in the statement to People magazine. “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.”

HGTV released a statement to CNN in which the network said they “admire and appreciate Tarek and Christina’s great work on ‘Flip or Flop.’”

“When it comes to matters related to their own family, we respect their privacy and honor any decision that works best for them and their children,” the HGTV statement said. “HGTV is currently airing episodes of ‘Flip or Flop’ and the series will continue production as scheduled.”

The couple are the parents of 6-year-old daughter Taylor and one-year-old son Brayden.

The pair said they are currently evaluating their marriage and plan to continue working together professionally and in the best interest of their children.
