Christina El Moussa has been going through a tough time.

As you may already know, the Flip or Flop star is in the midst of a divorce from Tarek El Moussa, he co-host and soon-to-be ex-husband.

To say the marriage didn’t end well would be putting it very mildly.

Sources close to the couple say Tarek caught Christina cheating and a brutal blowout fight ensued.

(It’s unclear how far Christina’s infidelity went, but she was reportedly caught exchanging explicit text messages with Gary Anderson, a contractor and friend of the El Moussas.)

In the altercation that ensued Tarek brandished a gun and threatened to commit suicide.

Now, despite going through some very rocky times Tarek and Christina are jointly playing damage control in hopes of saving their show from cancelation.

Like we said, not an easy time – which may be why fans are concerned by the dour selfie that Christina shared yesterday.

Christina captioned the pic simply, "Thursday vibes" and her use of the butterfly filter leads us to believe she’s not trying to send a message that she’s caught in the throes of a crippling depression, but an outpouring of concern quickly flooded her comments section nonetheless:

“You look a little down in this pic…. ???” wrote one fan.

"Hope your day gets a little brighter!!!” commented another.

“Just stay focused on those beautiful babies and you’ll be smiling in no time!” a third offered.

Some fans kept their observations simple and to the point.

("U look sad.")

While others went full marriage counselor:

"It’s not late to FIX your marriage! It wasn’t a flop, it just needs some rehab! Trust me, you two have 2 beautiful reasons to keep trying!!" wrote one fan.

Yes, some fans remain eternally optimistic about Christina’s marriage, with one writing:

“Sad eyes, @christinaelmoussa. I wish for you and family the very best. It will all work out."

We can’t help but wonder if these people know the whole story.

It’s always sad when a marriage ends, but this is one of those cases where it was definitely for the best.

Once things get bad enough that weapons are involved it’s time for two spouses to separate permanently, especially if they have kids.

Now there’s marriage advice you can take to the bank.
