Tom Sandoval East always in the market, ladies. A week after Tom, 39, and Raquel Leviss called he’s leaving – a case that ended Tom’s relationship with his mate Vanderpump Rules star, Ariana Madix – Tom was spotted hanging out with an influencer Karlee Hale in Austin, Texas. Amid reports that Tom and Karlee were dating, his rep told TMZ on Tuesday (May 23) that they’re “just friends.” Tom was in Austin because he was playing with his band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras.
Speculation of a new romance began when The sun posted a TikTok video of Tom and Karlee sitting at a table in a hotel restaurant. However, the rep noted that “there were other people in their group at the time they were seen together,” which the video did not show. Denial also comes as Tom’s rep said We Weekly that he “did absolutely not have an affair” with Darcey Silva (of Darcey and Stacey And 90 day fiance fame.)
For once in recent memory, Tom is in the news for who he is not seeing. In March, Tom and Ariana, 37, broke up after his affair with Raquel, 28, became public knowledge. “Hey, I fully understand and deserve your anger and disappointment with me, but please go away (Tom) Schwartzmy friends and family out of this situation…” Tom wrote on Instagram after VRP fans were whipped into a frenzy. Tom said he “would be taking a break out of respect for my employees and partners. I need time to sort out everything else. Sorry for everything.”
However, Tom and Raquel weren’t meant to be – the couple split in mid-May. “Raquel dived. Sandoval is not for her,” a source said. page 6.
Shortly after Tom and Raquel split, Ariana appeared on the call her daddy podcast and confirmed the rumor that Tom slept with Raquel behind Ariana’s back — literally. “They had sex in my guest bedroom while I slept in my own bed that he and I went to bed together,” she said.
Ariana also shared how she learned from other times that Tom was unfaithful. “Years and years ago. I got a DM that said, ‘Tom met my friend in San Diego.’ I brought it up time and time again. And (he) was like, ‘No, absolutely. No, no, no,” Ariana said on the podcast. “It was really just a no. That no, I’m like, ‘No, I think that was a yes.'”
