There have been multiple sightings of Sandoval and Hale together, despite The Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman going through two breakups in recent months. Last Wednesday, The Sun published a TikTok video showing the two seated at a table in a hotel restaurant. Sandoval attempted to remain inconspicuous by wearing a baseball cap that partially concealed his face.
Ariana Madix Doesn’t Believe Tom Sandoval And Raquel Leviss Are Over
Amid media reports surrounding Sandoval’s alleged involvement with Hale, it was revealed that his “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Raquel Leviss ended their seven-month affair. An insider quoted by Page Six stated that “Raquel dipped out. Sandoval is not for her.”
Despite the speculation of their affair ending, Sandoval’s ex, Madix, expressed doubts about the cover band singer and Leviss being over. In a recent “Watch What Happens Live” episode, Madix stated, “I don’t buy that at all. She was sending letters to my house like four days ago.”
Ariana Madix ‘Ready To Dip Out’ On Tom Sandoval
Following the much-publicized affair and breakup, Madix announced she was bidding farewell to the home she once shared with her ex-boyfriend Sandoval.
In an Instagram Story shared on Monday, the model posted a video outside their Los Angeles residence, displaying packed cardboard boxes in the background. In the caption, she wrote, “Ready to dip out,” along with a smirking emoji.
The couple, who had been together for nine years, broke up in March following revelations of Sandoval’s affair with Leviss. However, Madix and Sandoval continued residing in the same property for several months after ending their romantic relationship.
During an appearance on “Today” with Hoda & Jenna on May 18, Madix expressed her desire to sell the five-bedroom, five-and-a-half-bathroom home they had purchased and remodeled together, saying, “I’ve been on the phone with a real estate agent. And I would like to sell that house and move somewhere, own my place, and start my new life.”
Madix discussed her plans to move out on “Watch What Happens Live.” She said, “I plan to sell the house. I want my money out of that house as quickly as possible and to move on.”
Ariana Madix’s Moving Out News Was A PR Stunt
In an unexpected turn of events, Madix’s moving out announcement has been revealed as an elaborate publicity stunt. The reality TV star, dressed in a blue ‘SoFi’ sweater, black leather leggings, and white sneakers, was seen loading boxes labeled “finances” into a truck, giving the impression of a genuine relocation.
However, Madix later clarified that it was all part of an influencer marketing campaign to promote SoFi, a financial services company. In a cryptic snippet shared on her Instagram Story, she proclaimed, “I’m moving UP, not out,” hinting at a different meaning behind the moving facade. She teased, “It’s time to get my financial house order. I will have more to share with you very, very soon.”
True to her word, later that day, Madix posted a full-fledged advertisement for SoFi on Instagram. The ad featured her mingling with ‘Dr. Money and endorsing “bank that’s got my back.” The stunt generated mixed reactions on social media, with some expressing surprise and feeling duped by Ariana’s elaborate ploy.
