Vanderpump Rules” Stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix Split After Allegations of Cheating with Costar Raquel Leviss
It has been reported that nine years of being an item has come to an end for “Vanderpump Rules” stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, after Sandoval was accused of cheating on Madix with fellow costar, Raquel Leviss.
According to a source, Tom and Ariana's nine-year relationship ended on March 3, 2023, PEOPLE reported. An insider told the outlet that Ariana had been dealing with issues for some time, but that this event was what ultimately led to the breakup. No matter how much she endured throughout the years, she refused to tolerate any disrespect.
On Wednesday night, Madix reportedly stumbled upon evidence of Sandoval's infidelity when she picked up his phone after it had dropped out of his pocket while he was onstage playing with his band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras. Upon inspection, an inappropriate video of Leviss was discovered. On the same evening, Leviss and Shay made an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen to talk about the newest episode of VPR. After the conclusion of WWHL, it is said that Madix's long-time best friend Shay got to know about the betrayal and allegedly punched Leviss in the face.
According to information obtained by PEOPLE, Madix was made aware of the affair on March 1 when she was in attendance to support Sandoval and his band at a show in Los Angeles. Madix uncovered a sexually explicit video between Leviss and Sandoval, as well as a catalogue of indecent messages, on his telephone, as stated by the source.
Viewers of Bravo's show Vanderpump Rules were taken aback when it was revealed that Tom had an affair with Raquel, who initially appeared on the series in season five (2016) as James Kennedy's significant other. It is said that the affair had been occurring since the middle of 2022, yet Ariana only became aware of it on March 1, 2023, when she discovered an explicit selfie video from Raquel and a selection of inappropriate messages from Tom on his mobile phone.
An insider told People that for the last six months, Tom had been sleeping in the same bed as Ariana, despite the fact that something had been going on. “She was completely blindsided by this; devastated doesn't even scratch the surface of how she feels.
