Tom Sandoval & Ariana Madix’s Split After Alleged Cheating Drama With Raquel Leviss Rocks Vanderpump Rules Fans
It's been a shocking week for ‘Vanderpump Rules' fans after news broke that stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix had split following rumors that he cheated on her with costar Raquel Leviss. Sources close to the couple told TMZ that Madix, 37, found out about the alleged cheating in the last couple of days and immediately ended things with Sandoval, whom she had been dating since 2013.
Following the news, Leviss' ex-fiancé James Kennedy responded to the drama on Instagram, writing, “Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.” On Friday, Sandoval seemingly addressed the split at his Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras concert when an audience member yelled “Ariana!” to which he responded, “We love her.”
People reported that Sandoval and Madix, 37, had split after 9 years together. According to sources, on Wednesday evening, Madix's relationship with Leviss reached its breaking point. While attending Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras' show in Los Angeles, she noticed inappropriate messages exchanged between Leviss and Sandoval on her boyfriend's phone.
A fourth source told People earlier on Friday that Madix and Sandoval had been having problems “for a while” but that learning of this “was the final straw for Ariana” after nine years together. Later, Lala Kent also entered the narrative, writing, “Everyone said I was a ‘bully'. It's called YOU TRIGGER ME AND I SEE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE! I've known these two are disgusting from the jump.”
On Friday morning, producers invited Tom and Ariana to their home to talk about their break-up in front of the cameras. According to TMZ, the atmosphere was highly emotional. Viewers can expect to witness the unfolding drama as season 10 of the Bravo series is currently being broadcast. The cameras of Bravo are currently recording, aiming to feature the recent events in the remaining episodes of Season 10, airing on Wednesdays.
Leviss, 28, made an appearance with Scheana Shay on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen where she defended her decision to kiss Schwartz on the show despite his divorce from her friend, Katie Maloney.
