Tom Sandoval is breaking his silence after having a six-month affair with Raquel Leviss.
Over the weekend, the Vanderpump Rules The star has released a statement following his split from girlfriend Ariana Madix after nearly a decade of dating.
“Hey, I fully understand and deserve your anger and disappointment with me, but please go away [Tom] Schwartz, my friends and family are coming out of this…” he wrote on Instagram on Saturday.
Tom insisted that Schwartz only found out about his affair with Raquel “very recently” And “did not tolerate it.”
“It was something very personal. Also, Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but there are also 3 other partners and 20 employees who are particularly dependent on the restaurant for their income. [themselves] and their families. Just like TomTom, I’m a small part of a much bigger thing. Please direct [your] anger towards me and not towards them. They did nothing wrong. I’m so sorry that my partners, Greg, Brett and Schwartz, and our employees have to suffer for my actions. I will step back and pause out of respect for my employees and partners. I need time to sort out everything else. Sorry for everything.”
The statement comes just two days after news broke that Tom and Raquel were having an affair, which
Ariana broke up with Tom on Wednesday night after finding out about his affair with Raquel at a concert for his band, Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras, in Los Angeles.
According Page 6‘s source, Tom and Raquel were “communicating inappropriately for months” And “want to be together”.
The source adds that Ariana was “Blinded by cheating.”
Meanwhile, it turns out Raquel wasn’t the only woman Tom was cheating on Ariana with over the past year.
Patrick Somrs, yes this Patrick Somrs, of all the Lisa Rinna and Kathy Hilton from season 12 of RHOBHalleges that Tom was cheating on Raquel/Ariana with her best friend, Julia.
To make matters worse, Patrick claims that Tom got Julia pregnant, paid for her abortion and then ghosted her for weeks. He shared private DMs between himself and Tom, where the Bravoleb doesn’t deny the claims but says he will “text Julia with an apology.”
“Tom, Tom, Tom… so let me understand. You were cheating on Ariana with Raquel but you were cheating on Raquel with my best friend Julia. Got it, @tomsandoval1″ Patrick wrote on his Instagram story.
He then messaged Tom on Instagram, writing, “I find it funny that after everything I did with Julia at the same time…it’s scary how good a liar you are.” It would be a shame if I said something.
tom replied “Patrick, I don’t want any trouble and I’ll privately text Julia apologizing. I’m sorry,” to which Patrick said, “Properly [be]. It’s embarrassing for you and your “reputation”.
After Patrick got his tea out on Tom, the Pump Rules star begged him to “take your stories” because he doesn’t “need to deal with more shit” as “It’s getting dangerous [for] my family and my business partners.
“I’m doing well,” patrick replied “It’s all the lies you told him for me” [aka the] ‘I want to marry you.’ But [you] I wouldn’t even date her, and then after the abortion, you ghosted her for weeks. BUT THEN, TO KNOW MORE OF ALL THAT, you were cheating. You’re a fuckin’ loser, and I’m gonna strut around for a “press tour.”
At this point, Tom stopped responding to Patrick, saying only: “[My] the legal team will be in touch shortly.
Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
