Rachel Leviss says the intimate FaceTime session she had Tom Sandoval which ultimately led to Tom’s split with Ariana Madix was recorded without her permission, and she’s gotten her lawyers involved to warn everyone about sharing it.
Leviss’ lawyers on Monday fired off a letter to several “Vanderpump Rules” cast members and friends … warning that the taping “was done illegally without Raquel’s knowledge or consent.”
Her attorneys cited a revenge porn statute in the California Penal Code that prohibits “non-consensual pornography” … making it a crime to invade someone’s privacy and disseminate such material.
What’s more … the letter warns that any distribution of the recording — whether posted on social media or forwarded to another person — would be a violation.
The letter doesn’t specifically accuse Tom of illegally recording the conversation, but sources who have seen the video tell us it’s just the two of them on the call.
The lawyers are ordering anyone in possession of the recording to immediately delete it from their phones, the cloud or “any other way or method by which the recording may exist.”

The letter ended with stern words of warning … “This matter should be taken very seriously.”
Of course, the legal letter was just the latest drama in Raquel and Tom’s life. TMZ broke the story … the two carried on an affair that blew up Tom’s relationship with his longtime girlfriend Ariana, who also stars on “Vanderpump Rules.”
We’re told Ariana found out about the affair after she read sexual text messages and watched the video between Tom and Raquel.
This led to an ugly confrontation between Tom and Ariana, which ended the final chapter of their 10-year relationship. Our sources say that Tom and Ariana have no plans to unite.
