“Vanderpump Rules” fans suspect Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ romance “is way deeper than we know” after noticing the duo have been rocking matching necklaces for months.
Shortly after news broke Friday that Sandoval’s longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, had left him after finding out about his “full-on affair” with Leviss, social media sleuths began to notice the lightning bolt pendants in several of the new twosome’s photos.
Sandoval, 39, continues to wear his almost daily, while Leviss, 28, switches hers out depending on her outfit.
She was even seen sporting the seemingly significant jewelry at BravoCon 2022 back in October, where Madix, 37, was also in attendance.
An insider told us Sandoval and Leviss’ dalliance “began last summer” and that the former beauty queen “has slept over Tom and Ariana’s house when Ariana’s been out of town.”
Their co-star James Kennedy corroborated the information in an Instagram direct message sent to Deuxmoi, saying the affair began “7 months” ago, which would have been July 2022.

The 31-year-old DJ, who was previously engaged to Leviss, claimed the pair’s escapades at Sandoval and Madix’s shared Los Angeles home sometimes took place while “Ariana [was] sleeping.”
We’re told Madix is “heartbroken” after learning that her boyfriend of almost 10 years and her close friend have been “communicating inappropriately for months” and that they now “want to be together.”
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” our source explained, adding that Madix had “no idea there were any issues” in her relationship and feels “betrayed by her friend.”
We’re told she “found out” about the pair’s relationship Wednesday at Sandoval’s band’s show after a sexually explicit video of Leviss popped up on his phone.
We’re also told that the illicit couple had planned “for weeks” to confess their relationship to Madix before she found out on her own.
Madix has since deactivated her social media accounts, while Leviss has not spoken on the matter.
Sandoval, for his part, issued a lengthy statement Saturday, writing in part, “I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave [Tom] Schwartz my friends and family out of this situation.”
Page Six has reached out to reps for Sandoval, Leviss and Madix for comment.
