Reality star Tarek El Moussa dated his children’s nanny after his split from his wife Christina, FOX411 has confirmed.
TMZ reports that the “Flip or Flop” star connected with the 23-year-old Alyssa Logan, who was looking for the former couple with two children.
Sources tell the website that she went out in September, four months after the El Moussas secretly split.
A source told People magazine: “Yes, he dated a nanny… To be clear, this was someone he hired to help as he had the children after the divorce. This was not the nanny that they’ve had for a year.”
TMZ reports Tarek fired Logan as soon as he realized that he had feelings for her and started dating her shortly afterwards. Logan and El Moussa are no longer together, FOX411 has learned.
