The Vanderpump Rules star, 37, and Wai made headlines all throughout the first weekend of Coachella, beginning on Friday, April 14. Madix shared an Instagram Story holding hands with the fitness guru on day 1, while he uploaded a photo cozying up to the Florida native to his Instagram Story on Saturday, April 15. On day three of the Indio, California, music festival, per footage obtained by TMZ, the pair made out and danced during one of the first sets of the evening on Sunday, April 16.
“We just kissed. It was magnetic,” the TomTom co-owner, 40, admitted on the “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast on Tuesday, April 11, of his August 2022 hookup with Leviss, 28. “I felt something that I hadn’t felt in so long emotionally.” He added: “The feelings were something very, very strong. Those feelings that I had started to take over in a sense. Logic went out the window. Because I wasn’t experiencing that [with Ariana] — I hadn’t experienced that [before].”
According to Sandoval’s business partner, Tom Schwartz — who also made out with Leviss in August 2022 — “The one-night stand was in August and then it became, from my point of view, it became an emotional affair,” the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-founder, 40, revealed on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen earlier this month. “Which is still inappropriate, but I didn’t think it was linear. [Then] in January, he came to me and told me that he was in love with Raquel.”
After the fallout, Sandoval and Leviss — who is currently seeking mental health treatment amid the scandal — publicly apologized to Madix for their affair. On Howie Mandel‘s podcast, Sandoval revealed that he and Leviss are “taking a break” for now and are “not putting any label on [their relationship].”
The vast majority of Sandoval and Leviss’ Pump Rules costars, meanwhile, have publicly — and repeatedly — slammed their actions. Madix, for her part, broke her silence on the drama two weeks after her split from Sandoval, thanking her friends for sticking by her side.
“When I have felt like I couldn’t even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours,” Madix wrote via Instagram in March. “To say I have been devastated and broken is an understatement. However, I know that I am not in this alone. So many of my closest friends are also grieving this loss right now and reeling from this betrayal on so many levels. … What doesn’t kill me better run.”
