Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix have decided to call off their relationship after nine years of companionship. Their nine-year-long relationship came to an end after Madix found out that his ex-boyfriend was sleeping with co-star Raquel Leviss.
Following the breakup, Tom confessed to making mistakes as he was being selfish and made decisions that eventually hurt Ariana. He went on to assure that no one deserves to feel so much pain because of him.
Tom Sandoval Apologise For Cheating Ariana Madix
Tom Sandoval publicly apologized to Ariana for putting her through this traumatic experience. He added that he can imagine how painful everything would have been for Aariana. He admitted that he made one of the biggest regretful decisions by dishonoring Ariana.
He continued that his love for Ariana was stronger than their chemistry on screen. He concludes the statement by wishing he could have done things differently as she deserves better than what he already did.
A few hours after Tom Sandoval issued the apology, Racquel also released a statement owing an apology to Ariana. In the statement, she said that she wishes to apologize for her actions towards Ariana and his friends and fans who were so keen and looking up to the relationship.
She wrote that she is not trying to become the victim or justifying her actions as she felt deeply regretted the decision she made that hurt Ariana.
She continued, “I am reflecting on my own choices, speaking to a counselor and I am learning things about myself such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved.
I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships. I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.”
Both of the apologies seemed to be genuine as they were directly pouring their heart out after realizing what they had lost. Raquel and Tom appear to have learned a lot about the value of friendships and relationships by stabbing Ariana behind the back.
Ariana Madix Response On The Incident
After a week of their confession, Ariana Madix broke out of her silence and wrote a long statement on her official Instagram handle along with a photo of her dressed up in a pink-to-green faded outfit.
She started her statement by stating that she doesn’t know where to begin and she thanked all of their friends and family for the love and support they have shown to the actress. She expressed her gratitude to them for standing with her even when she was in the darkest hours of her time.
She continued that she was devastated to learn about her ex-boyfriend’s infidelity with their co-star. Although she believes that she is not alone in this as many of the victims are still facing betrayal at different levels. She eluded her statement again thanking people who outpour support and love for her. She ended it with what seems to be an idiom or a phrase “What doesn’t kill me better run.”
The estranged couple initially met after Madix was introduced to Vanderpump Rules. At the time Tom’s then ex-girlfriend Kristen Doute accused Tom of cheating on her with Madix. At the time they both denied it only later to confirm that they once made out in a pool in Las Vegas.
The pair began dating and made their relationship official on Instagram. Over nine years, they attended multiple events including dressing up for Halloweens, attending Coachella, celebrating birthdays, and buying a home together, not to mention they even launched a book together.
The couple supported each other through hard times such as when she removed cancer as well as when they defended each other from Lisa during season 7 and other occasions. It is unclear what went wrong in their relationship despite sharing a strong bond.
