Tom Sandoval claimed that he dumped Ariana Madix on Valentine’s Day — two weeks before she discovered his affair with Raquel 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,’” the “Vanderpump Rules” star, 40, alleged on Tuesday’s episode of the “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast.
Sandoval claimed that they kept the split between them, so they could “figure out a way to navigate this that helps us both out and makes it easier” — but asserted that Madix, 37, was in “denial.”
“A couple 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,’” he continued.
Sandoval explained that, at the time of the second alleged conversation, he had not told her about his months-long affair with her close friend Leviss, 28.
“She’s like, ‘If you break up with me, you will be effectively ending my life,’” Sandoval claimed Madix told him. “I didn’t know what to do. She was in complete denial and not accepting it.”
The wannabe rockstar shared that, after the alleged split, he and a group of his friends went to a food and wine festival in Miami the next weekend, and Madix “didn’t talk to me the entire time.”
Sandoval claimed that despite not speaking that weekend, she showed up to his cover band Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras’ concert at his bar, TomTom, on March 1.
“We’ve never been PDA unless it’s for a photo or for press or whatever, [but] she, like, in front of all these fans, she grabs me and knows that I’m not gonna push her away in front of people, and she kisses me,” he continued.
The Bravolebrity then detailed how Madix discovered his infidelity.
“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.”
A rep for Madix didn’t immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Page Six reported last month that Madix dumped her boyfriend of almost a decade after she found a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone. This led to the Something About Her co-founder learning that the two had been “communicating inappropriately” since at least July 2022.
