Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss were reportedly caught kissing at Scheana Shay and Brock Davies‘ wedding in Mexico last August — just one day after she was spotted making out with his best friend, Tom Schwartz.

As Sandoval ventured to Indio, California, to attend Coachella and Raquel remained in treatment for her mental health, reports claimed that not only were Sandoval and Raquel seen kissing at the wedding, but that they actually used code names for one another in their phones.

In photos shared by Us Weekly, Sandoval was seen heading to the music festival in Indio, California, on Friday, hours after it was revealed that Raquel had checked herself into a treatment facility.

“Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” Raquel’s rep said in a statement last week. “Raquel had planned to admit herself before the [Pump Rules reunion] was taped on March 23. She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment.”

“Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health,” the statement added.

As he headed south, Sandoval was photographed with a handful of snacks as he prepared for his road trip in a pair of aviators, a black t-shirt, and a long-sleeve black button-up with an embroidered message that read, “T Sandy.”

He was also wearing a colorful beaded necklace.

While Sandoval and Raquel’s affair was ultimately exposed in early March after months of being under wraps, a report from TMZ on April 17 said the couple attempted to keep their romance secret by using fake names for one another in their cell phones.

As the outlet explained, Sandoval, who came up with the idea, used the name “Jamie” to identify Raquel in his phone, and he actually referred to Raquel as “Jamie” in front of some of his friends.

As for Raquel, it is unknown what name she used for him.

As for the claims of a makeout on Scheana and Brock’s wedding day, Scheana’s wedding dress designers, Patrik Simpson and Pol’ Atteu, appeared on Jeff Lewis‘ SiriusXM Radio show on Thursday, where Patrick claimed Sandoval and Raquel locked lips when “nobody was around.”

“I get off the elevator and I see Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss kissing off to the side,” Patrik said on the April 13 episode of Jeff Lewis Live, via Page Six, noting that while producers were around, it was not clear whether or not they noticed.

And because he could “never tell [Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz] apart,” Patrik said it was hard for him to confirm who it was until the affair was discovered in March.

Pol’ then addressed Raquel’s kiss with Schwartz, saying it was “fake.”

“We knew it was fake because hello, we got kicked out of our seat,” he noted.

According to Pol’, he didn’t like Raquel because she never seemed “engaged” and she appeared “very removed.”

“Her motives were so skewed that when you’re in it, you’re not going to see it,” he explained.
