The Wedding Gave Christina’s Ex Closure

Tarek told People he was shocked by the news and that he found out about it on Christina’s wedding night. He revealed, “It was actually the night they got married. I was sitting on the couch and then I started getting texts from people showing me a photo online of her wedding. That’s how I found out … I would say it was kind of out of the blue.” Ultimately, Tarek said he was happy for his ex and said he sent her and her new beau a congratulatory text that night.
Tarek went on to say, “I think finding that out made me realize 100% closure. It was a moment of clarity, actually. I was at peace, it was weird.”
Christina and Ant started dating in October 2017.
