Adriana Madix rushes out of her house and into her car when cheating ex Tom Sandoval returns home.
“Vanderpump Rules” stars Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval had an awkward moment Saturday as the shoeless actress desperately tried to avoid her cheating beau at their West Hollywood home.
The 37-year-old girl friend was seen storming out of the residence in such an apparent hurry that she neglected to put on shoes after the roving bandleader returned from a night of performing with stage make-up still plastered on his face.
Dressed in a mismatched gray sweatsuit with the pants tucked into the fuzzy socks, Madix hastily tossed her Ugg slippers and duffel bag into the backseat of her white sedan before coming face to face with Sandoval.
Reality star-turned-singer Sandoval, 39, appeared to be in much better spirits than his ex of nine years – smiling before lugging his packed bags into the Los Angeles home.
The awkward moment comes just after the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman was caught cheating on her with reality show co-star Raquel Leviss, 28.
The two-hour couple had reportedly planned “for weeks” to tell Madix about their months-long affair during a taped episode of the long-running Bravo show.
Instead, the heartbroken star found out on her own by rifling through Sandoval’s phone.
The couple split after the news broke, and Sandoval reportedly wanted to move on with his former mistress.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” an insider told Page Six, adding that Madix had “no idea there were any problems” in her relationship.
Sandoval was seen shipping massive suitcases from the home he shared with Madix, even though he hadn’t officially moved.
While Madix has remained largely silent, Sandoval addressed the drama during his concert at City National Grove in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday.
“Have you ever been one of the most hated people in America?” the 39-year-old asked the audience.
In a TikTok video taken at the concert, an audience member could be heard screaming, “Ariana!” prompting Sandoval to reply, “We love her.”
