Tom Sandoval Was CUT OFF By A Family Member Over Raquel Leviss Scandal
Tom Sandoval’s brother, Brian Sandoval, tried to distance himself from the Vanderpump Rules star after the fallout from his secret affair with co-star, Raquel Leviss.
Tom spilled the information on Thursday’s episode of his podcast, Everybody Loves Tom.
“My brother, like, told me, he’s like, ‘Tom, you need to delete photos of us Instagram,’” the 41-year-old revealed.
Tom’s guest, Jerry O’Connell asked—“Your actual blood?”
“My actual blood brother said that to me,” the cover band frontman confirmed.
There appear to be no photos of the siblings on Tom’s Instagram profile, seemingly suggesting that the “Pump Rules” star granted his brother’s request.
The brothers appeared to share a closer relationship in the years prior to Tom being outed for cheating on his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, in March 2023.
Tom posted a photo of the pair on Facebook in May 2021, captioning the shot of the brothers wearing suits—“Happy National Brother’s Day! Love You Brian! …excuse me, Dr. Brian Sandoval”
O’Connell, 49, explained that he understood Brian for likely feeling “anxious” over his connection to Tom. He revealed that he had his own hesitations about appearing on Tom’s podcast.
“My anxieties in coming on as a guest is that I am somehow approving, Tom, of some of your behavior in the past,” he said.“It’s scary.”
Tom told the “Talk” co-host—“I don’t think you’re condoning my behavior by showing up here.”
Brian isn’t the only one in Tom’s family who made their feelings known regarding his scandalous affair with the former pageant queen.
In late December 2022, Tom took his 29-year-old paramour to his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, but the lovers only received a collective cold shoulder from Tom’s family members. TMZ reported that his relatives had “no interest” in meeting Leviss. The outlet’s source said that even Tom’s close pals deemed it “inappropriate” to parade has secret girlfriend around town.
However, Tom’s mother, Terri Green, was aware of what was going on and even hosted the couple in her St. Louis home during a storm warning.
A source told TMZ that Leviss first crossed paths with Green at her home after the secret lovers were forced to leave a bar because of the incoming storm. Tom and Leviss took cover inside Green’s nearby residence after the bar was forced to close. Green had reportedly rejected the opportunity to meet Leviss the previous month.
Green was reportedly “cordial” to Leviss but “wasn’t cool with their situation.” The outlet clarified that Tom did not introduce Leviss as his girlfriend.
The covert couple spent the night at Green’s house that night and even shared a bedroom, according to the report.
