The tension between the duo has always been apparent on the show, so it is no surprise when the actress came for the musician after he addressed his infidelity with their fellow co-star Raquel Leviss.

The 39-year-old's post was met with a lot of criticism from the "Trauma Center" star, and she addressed it via her Instagram story, writing, "S*ndoval. Shut up. Employees, abort mission," across his statement, adding, "Where's Ariana's apology in this? It's called narcissism … & and it's terrifying." 

Sandoval's affair affected his business and ended his relationship with Ariana Madix after almost a decade together. Earlier this month, PEOPLE confirmed that sources close to them said:

"They had been having problems for a while, but this was the final straw for Ariana. She put up with a lot over the years, but she won't sit back and be disrespected this way."

Although the "TomTom" co-founder and Leviss have not responded to the allegations, someone familiar with the show's production noted that cameras are currently capturing footage of the stars, and this means that the split might be included in season 10 on Bravo.

The co-authors' relationship has been rocky since they met in 2013 when Madix joined the cast and was the subject of cheating rumors with Sandoval, who was in a relationship with series alum Kristen Doute at the time.

They later admitted to kissing. Madix and Sandoval later confirmed their relationship at the season 2 reunion in 2014 after admitting to kissing. However, things got heated between them in 2019 when he revealed to friends that she and Kent had a sexual experience in his car.

The "Working It Out" guest star, who is openly bisexual, felt that Sandoval had broken her trust by revealing this information, saying, "I'm not ashamed of what happened between Lala and me, but I do believe that Tom betrayed my trust by telling his guy friends about it. My sexuality is not something that is meant to be a cool story for a bunch of guys."

It is no surprise that Kent is pissed about Sandoval's cheating scandal, given that she has had her fair of infidelity in her former relationship with her ex, Randall Emmett. The pair ended their three-year engagement in October 2021, less than a year after they welcomed their daughter, Ocean. 

The "Out of Death" star has never shied away from speaking up about the struggles she endured during her time with the "Silence" producer while exposing the many shenanigans he dabbled in.

Per The Blast, in March 2022, the entrepreneur took to social media to share some revealing details about Emmett's alleged affair which she claimed began the same month their daughter was born.

She responded to an Instagram post from "OneMomsBattle," where the producer was awarded the title "narcissist of the week" after sharing a photo of his daughters Ocean and Rylee. She wrote:

"Let's talk about it. I was alone during most of my pregnancy and for the first 7 months of her life until the mask fell and I saw who he really was. He started a relationship with a 23 year old in March of 2021- the month I gave birth."

The social media influencer claimed that while she was home with their child, he was traveling with the younger woman under the pretext that he was working. She noted that he threatened to call the police after she left their home when pictures of him and the other woman resurfaced.

The "Pitching Love and Catching Faith" actress mentioned that his girlfriend moved in just two days after she left. She stated, "Narcs thrive when they are under a microscope. I am not blind to what is going on, tho. It makes me sick that my sweet daughter's face (a picture I took and sent to him, by the way) is what pops up when he does his dirty work."
