Madix's ex-partner of 9 years recently appeared on the "Howie Mandel Does Stuff" podcast, where he revealed that he and Madix were no longer together when he started dating Raquel Leviss.

The "Vanderpump Rules" star, 39, noted that he ended their relationship on Valentine's Day, two weeks before she learned of his relationship with Leviss.

"I had already broken up with her two weeks earlier, and I told her, I said, 'Listen, we don't have to post anything on social media, like, let's talk through this,'" Sandoval alleged.

He continued, "A couple of days later, I sit down to talk with her again, and she's like, 'I'm not letting you leave me; you're gonna have to force me out of this relationship,' and I was like, 'Ariana, I don't think I can be faithful in a relationship with you right now."

Sandoval noted that Madix was in "denial" and wasn't ready to accept his decision to end their relationship because he'll be "effectively ending her life" even after telling her he couldn't be faithful in their relationship at the time.

The "Playing With Fire" actor also narrated how Madix got to discover his relationship with Leviss.

"My phone falls out of the pocket, she sees it, and obviously, was the most upset and angry I've ever seen her, but I think she went through the phone just to see if anything happened with somebody in Miami," he said. "But we were broken up, she knew we were broken up."
