‘Flip or Flop’ star Tarek El Moussa was awarded $55,000 in the lawsuit he brought against a former “realtor” he claimed ran off with his money.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, an Orange County judge granted El Moussa a default judgment in the case he brought against Mario Gonzalez and MCR Realty.
The reality star was awarded $35,000 in damages plus interest and attorney fees for a grand total of $55,523.89.
Back in 2018, El Moussa sued the realtor and his company after working out a deal to buy a home in Cypress, CA, only to have the guy go missing after he was wired $35,000. He later learned the man was a career criminal, and was actually under arrest for an unrelated manner, so Tarek sued over the ordeal.
Now he can take that cash and use it to buy houses in ANY condition … because Tarek Buys Houses.
