Madix, 37, is said to have discovered 39-year-old Sandoval’s alleged cheating with 28-year-old Leviss in recent days, ending their nine-year romance shortly afterwards.
A production source told DailyMail.com, “There is more to this story that will be revealed in the coming weeks, but not all is as it seems, but it is true that Tom and Raquel are dating.
“We should change the name of the show to Raquel Rules as she has definitely become the star of the show this season and has given it her all.
“The production has turned the cameras back on and they are catching all the fallout as the cast reacts to this news. This will be Vanderpump Rules’ best season yet.

Madix has since deleted her Instagram account, though neither she nor Sandoval nor Leviss have made any public comments.
DailyMail.com has reached out to representatives from Sandoval, Madix, Leviss and Bravo for comment.
Sandoval and Madix were last seen together on Wednesday, sources say TMZwho were the first to report the split – the pair’s nearly decade-long romance has been “going on for a while.”
Sandoval and Madix have been in a relationship since 2014 after Madix joined Vanderpump Rules in Season 2.
It was confirmed during the season 2 reunion special that they were dating, and they’ve been together ever since.
Leviss has been spotted trying to pursue a new romance with Tom Schwartz on the latest season of Vanderpump Rules — following his divorce from wife Katie Maloney after a 12-year romance and three-year marriage.
Leviss announced her own divorce from James Kennedy in January after five years together. In the wake of the hook-up revelations, he wrote on Instagram, “Hope you guys feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.’
LaLa Kent said, “I knew these two were disgusting from the jump!”

Madix’s brother Jeremy slammed Sandoval, writing, “It’s funny to see people climbing socially and acting sooooooooo fake they’re willing to shit on people who are supposed to be their ‘best friend’ (a term used very often). is used). often around here) all to get talked about or have some sort of storyline.
“This lifestyle and this group is beyond toxic and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone… Tom is trying his hardest to have a midlife crisis with his creepy band and Raquel has feigned his way to the top to make something of her life willing to step on anyone to get there, starting with James.
Sold out type of lame s**t. Let’s all remember that Raquel was a fan of the show before all this. Is anyone paying attention?
On Wednesday’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Leviss tried to get Schwartz to kiss her, but he politely turned her down.
‘Do you want to kiss me?’ Leviss introduced Schwartz, 40, as Sandoval’s band played onstage.
“I’d like to,” Schwartz said. ‘I can not do it. It’s a trap. You’re too good for me anyway.’
Schwartz grabbed her hands and told her not to run away.
“Are we still filming?” Schwartz said, looking back and seeing the cameras.
“You’re damn gorgeous,” Schwartz told her.
Schwartz said his ex-wife Katie, 36, would be very upset and he couldn’t do that to her. Raquel replied that she wasn’t that close to Katie.
Days later, Raquel confessed to Katie how she proposed to her ex-husband.
“He turned it down completely,” Raquel said. “He totally respects your boundaries.”
“Well, I know, but you don’t,” Katie said.

Raquel said she was sorry, but that Scheana Shay, 37, put the first thought in her mind.

In January, Sandoval and Madix – who began dating since 2014 – were forced to put a stop to the rumors that they had an ‘open relationship’.
The rumors were featured in a preview of Season 10 released in January in which co-star Scheana Shay tells Sandoval on the beach that “Katie (Maloney) said you and Ariana are in an open relationship,” to which Tom replies: ‘Oh my God .’
Madix took to Twitter after the trailer’s release and crushed the suggestion in a self-deprecating manner.
“We don’t have an open relationship. I’m really not that cool. Thought that was obvious,” Madix tweeted, adding the hashtag #pumprules.
While the alleged “open relationship” isn’t brought up again in the trailer, Sandoval was seen hugging Leviss while shirtless.
