What is it with celebrities and nannies? At least Tarek El Moussa reportedly waited until four months after he and his wife, Christina, separated before going for the couple's former child care employee.

TMZ reports that Tarek developed feelings for his family nanny, Alyssa Logan, but did not pursue a relationship with her during her time employed by the El Moussas.

Once Logan was reportedly fired, however, all bets were off. A source said the two briefly dated back in September, but it was short-lived. Tarek and Logan ended things in the same month.

This is just another piece of the strange puzzle that is the El Moussas' divorce. The couple have been separated since May and have been surprisingly candid about their split.

Right before the two separated, police were called to the El Moussa residence because Tarek had a handgun, which he was waving around outside his house.

Apparently, it was all just a misunderstanding, though, because Tarek later claimed he had only taken the handgun with him in the woods "for safety because of mountain lions and rattlesnakes in the area."

Meanwhile, Christina has also moved on and is dating. According to Us Weekly, she is now in a relationship with contractor Gary Anderson. Anderson was also reportedly there during the gun incident, which could explain why he and Christina were so quick to bond.

All in all, it's still pretty amazing that the El Moussas are keeping a united front. Following news of their split, the two released a joint statement and maintained that they are committed to raising and protecting their children through all of the hardships that come with separation.

The two have no plans, as of now, to formally file for divorce.

Do you think it's too soon for Tarek and Christina El Moussa to be dating other people, or is it good that they are building new lives separate from one another?
