Tom Sandoval was seen outside of the $2 million home he and Ariana Madix share on Friday afternoon, loading suitcases into the trunk of a vehicle.

Following news of his reported months-long affair with their mutual friend Raquel Leviss, the Vanderpump Rules star was photographed in all-black attire as he appeared to leave the property with his belongings in tow.

In photos shared by Page Six on March 3, Sandoval had a “very solemn look” on his face as he seemed to be moving out amid the news of his “full-on affair” with Raquel.

According to the outlet, a “disheveled” Sandoval was en route to his band Tom Sandoval and the Most Extras‘ show in Orange County, although he appeared to have enough suitcases for an extended getaway. And, on the way to Anaheim, he stopped at a gas station for snacks and drinks.

However, while many took the photos as confirmation that Sandoval was moving out, Kristen Doute, who was dating Sandoval during the first two seasons of Pump Rules, seemed to shoot down the idea as she re-tweeted a message from a Twitter user.

“FYI from someone who has been in the house for the last 24 hours: He wasn’t packing bags to leave, those are suitcases of merch that he expects to sell in Anaheim tonight,” the message, which came in response to the photos, read.

Another report from Page Six stated that when it came to Sandoval and Raquel’s relationship, their reported affair “began last summer,” prior to her and Tom Schwartz‘s hookup in Mexico.

The outlet also stated that Raquel “has slept over Tom and Ariana’s house when Ariana’s been out of town.”

According to James Kennedy, who spoke to Deux Moi, Sandoval, and Raquel began hooking up in July 2022 and often linked up while “Ariana [was] sleeping.”

Although Sandoval, Raquel, and Ariana have all remained silent in regard to the supposed affair, TMZ spoke to a source close to Tom, who insisted that things had been rocky between him and Ariana “for quite some time.”

Still, at Sandoval’s show in Los Angeles on Wednesday, he and Ariana appeared to be every bit of the loving couple as they kissed and spent time together before she discovered the inappropriate messages between him and Raquel.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
