Tom Sandoval has finally released a statement amid cheating allegations. The Vanderpump Rules star is in the middle of so much drama after he cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix. Additionally, he was doing so with their co-star and good friend, Raquel Leviss. So, what did Tom have to say for himself? Read on for more details.
Tom Sandoval Releases Statement Amid Cheating Allegations
Yesterday, it came out that Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval had been unfaithful to his girlfriend, Ariana Madix. The duo had been together since Season 3 of the series. However, he was not just unfaithful with a random stranger. Sandoval was having an affair with their co-star and good friend, Raquel Leviss. Fans and their cast mates were up in arms over this news, taking to social media to defend Ariana. More so, they wanted to pummel Tom.
Earlier this evening, Tom’s restaurant Schwartz and Sandy’s released a statement. They knew how mad fans were over the situation but asked them not to direct it at the business. Many employees depend on the work so it is prudent that personal feelings do not get in the way of operations at the restaurant. Now, Tom Sandoval is speaking out through his Instagram. The performer opened up about what was going on and seemingly confirmed that these allegations are true.
He made it clear that this is all on him and he does not want his two restaurants or employees to suffer. Most importantly, he addressed his best friend and business partner, Tom Schwartz. Schwartz is currently in the middle of a controversy in the series for kissing Raquel. Yet, in the clip for next week’s episode, she is seen kissing Garcelle Beauvais’ married son, Oliver in Las Vegas. Through this statement, it is quite clear that Tom and Raquel did have something. Now, he is stepping back from everything as there is so much attention on him and his businesses.
Tom Sandoval has a tour scheduled with his band, The MOST Extras. It is yet to be seen if he will have to cancel these dates due to the scandal. Furthermore, this situation will be addressed by his business partner and co-star Lisa Vanderpump. She will be a guest on Andy Cohen’s WWHL Wednesday night and is ready to speak out about what has transpired. Apparently, the cast all did their interviews regarding the affair earlier Saturday. However, Ariana appeared to discover the affair Wednesday evening after attending a VR showing at TomTom.
Do you think Tom Sandoval’s statement is an admission of guilt? More so, does this suffice as an apology or should he show more remorse? Let us know your thoughts and watch Vanderpump Rules Wednesdays on Bravo.
