The star has been vocal about her support for Madix in the past, but the recent scandal has added a new layer of drama to the already controversial relationships on the show.
According to a source that spoke to PEOPLE, Doute would only consider addressing Sandoval’s alleged affair with Raquel Leviss on the series with the approval of his ex-girlfriend. Sandoval and Madix recently parted ways due to the scandalous accusations.
According to an insider, the producers have invited the “Behind Your Eyes” star to return to the show and address the unfortunate event. The source noted, “She’s had her fair share of ups and downs with Sandoval over the years, but right now, she’s completely supporting Ariana.”
Although it is believed that Doute has moved past the show, it was revealed that “she’s considering it.” The informant then added, “It’ll depend if Ariana wants her to do it and is comfortable as that’s the only way she would ever go back on the show. It’s a conversation she and Ariana are having right now. The girls have all been spending time with Ariana.”
The entrepreneur took to social media over the weekend to show her support for the “Working It Out” guest star via a video on her Instagram page. Madix wrapped her arms around Doute as the older woman declared her support saying, “I stan Ariana. This is in real-time.”
She expressed her love for the model as they shared a kiss on the lip and cheek, saying, “I love you more than anything in the whole wide world, and I’ll kill people for you.”
A Closer Look At The ‘TomTom’ Co-owner And Raquel Leviss’ Affair
The news of the singer and the “Waking Up With Strangers” guest actress’s breakup has stunned Vanderpump Rules fans, who have followed their love story since 2013. Added to that, the revelation that what caused the split was because he cheated with their fellow co-star was even more surprising.
To help ease the confusion of keeping track of what happened, ET Online broke down the timeline to enable a closer look at the unfolding scandal and how it has rocked the world of reality TV.
In the second season reunion episode of the show, which aired almost a decade ago, the former lovebirds went public with their relationship. They also shared photos of each other on Instagram, although she has since deleted her account.
Their relationship began after Sandoval discovered that his former best friend, Jax Taylor, was having an affair with his then-girlfriend, Kristen Doute. It is speculated that the artist and Madix may have hooked up while he was still in a relationship with the “Blood on Canvas” actress.
Their relationship hit a rough patch when he publicly revealed on air that she had an affair with co-star Lala Kent. He also divulged the details of the encounter to his male friends.
Meanwhile, James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss announced their engagement in 2021 via pictures of the proposal and her engagement ring. But by the end of that same year, they broke it off and went their separate ways.
In June 2022, multiple sources contacted various media outlets, alleging that Sandoval and Leviss’ affair had been ongoing for several months. An insider told PEOPLE, “This has been going on for upwards of 6 months. All the while, Tom was sleeping next to Ariana in bed.”
They revealed that Madix was caught off guard and felt incredibly hurt by the situation, stating, “devastated doesn’t even scratch the surface of how she feels.”
