Days ago, after reactivating her Instagram account following a brief hiatus on the platform, Ariana seemingly blocked her ex-boyfriend, 39, and his mistress, 28, who are no longer under her following list or tagged in previous photos.
When someone blocks a user from their account on Instagram, their tag on a photo will disappear, leaving only the person’s face or likeness in the image.
While Sandoval and Leviss are no longer tagged in her posts, Madix has not deleted past birthday and anniversary tributes dedicated to Sandoval, who she dated for more than nine years.
The TV personality, who worked as costumed characters such as Ariel and Aurora at Disney World in college, also unfollowed Sandoval’s close friend, Tom Schwartz, who allegedly found out about his pal’s cheating ‘a month ago.’

On March 11, Sandoval apologized for cheating on Ariana Madix with Leviss on social media.
‘Hey, I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave [Tom] Schwartz, my friends, and family out of this situation…’ he wrote.
He continued: ‘This was a very personal thing. Also, Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but also there are 3 other partners and 20 employees, who especially rely on the restaurant for income for them and their families,’ Sandoval said, nodding to his new bar and TomTom, which opened back in 2018.
The actor went on to say he was a ‘small part of a much bigger thing’ and pleaded with his 961,000 followers to direct their ‘anger towards’ him and not his associates.
‘They did nothing wrong. I’m so sorry that my partners, Greg, Brett, and Schwartz and our employees have to suffer for my actions. I will be taking a step back & taking a hiatus out of respect for my employees and partners. I need some time to address everything else,’ he concluded. ‘Sorry for everything.’
A source has now informed Page Six that Sandoval and Leviss had been meaning to inform Madix about the affair ‘for weeks.’
They waited so long, though, that Madix wound up discovering their secret herself Wednesday night when she saw Leviss’ texts on Sandoval’s phone.
Sandoval’s apology post, which has received 21,881 likes in just two hours, comes less than 24 hours after he addressed his cheating scandal for the first time while performing with his band Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras.
‘Have you ever been one of the most hated people in America?’ the TV personality asked the audience, according to Us Weekly, alluding to the backlash over his affair.

‘This lifestyle and this group is beyond toxic and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone… Toms a try hard having a midlife crisis with his cringy band and Raquel has faked her way to the top trying to make something of her life willing to step on whoever to get there starting with James.
‘Sell out type lame s**t. Let’s all remember that Raquel was a fan of the show before all of this. Does anyone pay attention?
In Wednesday’s episode of Vanderpump Rules Leviss tried to get Schwartz to make out with her, but he politely turned her down.
‘Do you want to make out?’ Leviss propositioned Schwartz, 40, while Sandoval’s band played on stage.
‘I would love to,’ Schwartz said. ‘I can’t. It’s a trap. You’re too good for me anyway.’
Schwartz grabbed her hands and told her to not walk away.
‘Are we filming still?’ Schwartz said, looking back and seeing the cameras.
‘You are f***ing gorgeous,’ Schwartz told her.
Schwartz said his ex-wife Katie, 36, would be really upset and he couldn’t do that to her. Raquel responded that she wasn’t that close to Katie.
