In a confessional the Flip Or Flop alum said: ‘I wasn’t really expecting that news and it’s just gonna be a really big change for me.’

However insiders revealed to TMZ that he had repeatedly tested negative since, leading to conjecture he may have gotten a false positive.

Tarek’s representative confirmed that he had no symptoms but noted he would be taking time off Flipping 101 as a precaution.

Heather, who lives with him and stars on the Netflix show Selling Sunset, has not been diagnosed but is still quarantining with Tarek, who like her is vaccinated.

In order to be scrupulous about safety, Selling Sunset paused its production last Friday, TMZ reported citing insiders on the Netflix series.

Just one night earlier – last Thursday – Tarek had been seen taking Heather to a bash for her birthday at the Hollywood nightspot Beauty And Essex.

Tarek’s representative announced his diagnosis just hours after his ex-wife Christina Haack revealed she has gotten engaged to her beau Josh Hall.

When Tarek was informed of the engagement he diplomatically told People: ‘We ​​just heard [about the engagement,] but congratulations!’ 

Heather similarly said: ‘Wow, awesome! We just want nothing but happiness for [Christina and Josh] and nothing but happiness for the kids.’

A couple of months ago reports swirled that Tarek had launched a diatribe at Christina during the shoot of their own show.

While on the set of Flip Or Flop this July, which made them stars when they were married to each other, he reportedly called her a ‘washed-up loser.’

In a subsequent interview with E! News he described the incident as a ‘disagreement’ and maintained that there were ‘choice words said on both sides.’

He added that he would ‘never again’ have such a fight: ‘I never want to go through that ever again, I never want her to go through that again, and I know one day our kids are going to be older and I want them to know that we still care about each other and we still support each other, and it’s really important to me.’

Since her split from Tarek, Christina has married and divorced the smoldering British TV presenter Ant Anstead with whom she shares a son called Hudson, two.

Christina and Tarek were married from 2009 until 2018 and share two children of their own – Taylor, 11, and Brayden, six.

Amid Christina and Tarek’s engagements Ant is currently carrying on a relationship with Oscar-winning actress Renee Zellweger.
