Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix End Nine-Year Relationship Amid Cheating Allegations

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix’s nine-year relationship has sadly come to an end after he allegedly cheated on her with his Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss.

TMZ reported on Friday, March 3 that the couple had broken up after Madix discovered the affair. According to a source who spoke to Page Six, Ariana was “blindsided by the cheating” which caused her to be heartbroken. They also said that Ariana had been there for Raquel during her breakup with James.[0]

The cheating scandal was teased in the trailer for the new season of the Bravo show and will be a major storyline.[1] Leviss recently made headlines for kissing costar Tom Schwartz after his separation from Katie Maloney, and Sandoval and Madix were last seen out together on Wednesday in support of his new single.[2]

Sources reveal that Madix found out about the alleged infidelity earlier this week and promptly ended things with Sandoval, whom she had been dating since 2013.[3]

Jeremy Madix, Ariana’s brother, slammed the couple on Instagram, writing, “Toms a try hard having a midlife crisis with his cringy band and Raquel has faked her way to the top trying to make something of her life willing to step on whoever to get there starting with James. Sell out type lame s—t. Let’s all remember that Raquel was a fan of the show before all of this. Does anyone pay attention?”[4]

Madix and Sandoval had previously denied getting together before he and Doute ended things, but rumors of an open relationship between the former couple circulated just before the premiere of the new season. Madix took to Twitter to shut down the rumors, writing, “We do not have an open relationship. I’m not that cool.”[2]

Madix, Sandoval and Leviss have yet to address the breakup rumors and cheating allegations.[5]
