Tom Sandoval & Raquel Leviss’ Affair Is Seven Months Old
Sandoval and Madix’s relationship, which began in 2014, ended after she found out about his affair with Leviss on Wednesday. She reportedly saw a steamy clip of her friend on her now-former boyfriend’s phone while he was at a concert with his band, Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras.
The reality star later discovered that the two had been having an affair for several months. Following this, a source for Page Six revealed that the band leader had been secretly seeing Leviss since the summer of 2022. It also divulged that the duo would sleep “over Tom and Ariana’s house” while the actress and model was “out of town.”
James Kennedy, who also stars in “Vanderpump Rules,” confirmed the affair and even noted that it started in July 2022. The DJ, who was once engaged to Leviss, added that Sandoval and the 28-year-old’s hookups would sometimes happen while Madix was “sleeping” in her LA home. However, the duo reportedly “want to be together” and even have matching neckpieces.
Ariana Madix Is Heartbroken
Following news of the affair, Madix has deactivated her accounts on all social media platforms and has also been silent on the issue. However, the Page Six source revealed that the 37-year-old is heartbroken and is still processing things.
Despite comments that Sandoval and Leviss had some escapades in her house, the source emphasized that “Ariana was blindsided by the cheating.” She also didn’t think that “there were any issues” between her and Sandoval; therefore, the affair came as a surprise to her.
While she is upset at her ex-boyfriend, Madix feels even more “betrayed by her friend,” Leviss, who is also yet to speak about the situation.
Tom Sandoval Speaks Out
Amid Madix and Leviss’ silence on the issue, Sandoval released a statement talking about the affair. The 39-year-old first owned up to the allegations and begged the public to leave his family and business alone. His Instagram post read, “I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave Schwartz my friends and family out of this situation.”
He added, “Please direct ur anger towards me and not them. They did nothing wrong.” The star then noted that he would be “taking a step back” and “taking a hiatus” to protect his private life. However, the drama will be included in season 10 of his Bravo show.
According to Page Six, the cast members will gather on Saturday to react to the scandal. Although, most of them are on Madix’s side and believe she was the victim.
