Tom Sandoval has seemingly broken his silence after it emerged that he and his longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix have decided to call it quits.
The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star made a conscious effort to remain silent after news broke that he and co-star Raquel Leviss had a ‘complete affair’ – but finally decided to speak out on Friday night.
During his concert at City National Grove in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday, the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman made a comment that raised some eyebrows.
“Have you ever been one of the most hated people in America?” the 39-year-old asked the audience, according to Us Weekly.
In a tiktok videos taken at the concert, an audience member could be heard shouting “Ariana!” prompting Sandoval to respond, “We love it.”
Other onlookers were heard chanting “Cheater!” after Madix’s girlfriend Lala Kent urged those who were going to make a fuss at the event on her Instagram Story on Friday.
The concert took place just hours after it emerged that Sandoval and Leviss had “communicated inappropriately” for months.
Madix, who is said to be “heartbroken” and “blindsided” by the news, has since kicked Sandoval out of his LA pad.
He was caught on camera packing his suitcases into a friend’s car and leaving on Friday hours before his gig.
“Ariana was blindsided by cheating,” an insider told Page Six on Friday, adding that she had “no idea there were issues” in her relationship.
The news hit Madix very hard after she developed a friendship with Leviss following her messy split from ex-fiancé James Kennedy in December 2021.
Madix, 37, came face to face with harsh reality as he sat front row at the Sandoval concert on Wednesday.
She found out about the “several months” affair after Sandoval’s phone rang with an explicit video sent from Leviss, People reported Friday.
Madix then scrolled down the text thread where she read their inappropriate message history. Immediately afterwards, she and Sandoval left the room.
Their affair reportedly began in the summer of 2022 with Leviss sleeping “above Tom and Ariana’s house when Ariana was out of town.”
The news comes as an added shock as Sandoval had gushed about her relationship with Madix moments before she found the texts.
“We definitely have our ups and downs, but I think we respect each other really well,” he told Page Six.
