Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix enjoyed a night out at Mother Wolf restaurant in Los Angeles on Thursday night, weeks after facing false rumors of a potential split.
After wrapping production on the upcoming 10th season of Vanderpump Rules last weekend, Tom and Ariana treated themselves to a visit to the Hollywood hotspot, where Tom shared a photo and video with his fans and followers.
“Date [with] Dumplin,” Tom wrote in the caption of his September 22 pic, which featured him and Ariana smiling at the camera with a fruity-looking cocktail in front of them.
Tom also shared a video from inside the venue, in which a bevy of plated dishes were seen between him and his longtime girlfriend.
“Love this place,” Tom wrote with the clip as he panned around the restaurant.
As Pump Rules fans may have seen, Ariana was met with breakup rumors earlier this month after she shared a couple of images, one of which featured Tom and one that did not, and spoke of “sad” life changes.
“I never posted anything for my birthday months ago and now it’s wild to look at these photos because so much has changed … Some good and some sad, but that’s life I suppose!” she had written in the caption of an Instagram post at that time.
Then, after Ariana was noticeably absent from one of Tom’s band’s shows, those rumors were reignited with the addition of a separate report.
“The rumors are true… These [two] bar stars have broken up. They are currently filming but faking it became too much,” read an alleged insider statement shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram. “She had tried to make things work and suggested therapy. Contrary to popular belief, he is not the domesticated partner who wanted a family, he’s been enjoying touring with his band and going out almost every night.”
“She has been traveling with him but he pays almost no attention to her while they are out, even leaving her at the venue to go out without her knowing it,” the source added.
But after the rumor began making its rounds on social media, Ariana set the record straight with a tweet.
“I just got back to LA from FL last night after a very devastating family emergency. [I] am taking it easy and practicing self care,” she confirmed. “We are very much together and in love.”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 is expected to begin airing on Bravo sometime later this year or early next year.
