Tom Sandoval is clapping back at Ariana Madix‘s lawsuit against him regarding the potentially impending sale of their $2 million home.

In a filing of his own last Friday, the Vanderpump Rules star, 41, slammed Ariana, 38, over what he claims was a lack of facts as he requested he be compensated for the money he’s spent on repairs and improvements and Kristen Doute, 41, spoke out about the communication Ariana had with Sandoval amid the mental health struggles he faced following their highly-publicized split.

According to court documents obtained by Page Six on February 26, Sandoval is accusing Ariana of failing to disclose “sufficient facts to state a cause of action against” him in the lawsuit she filed against him in January.

He also said she “failed to mitigate whatever damages” she’s “suffered” in her paperwork and didn’t act “reasonably and in good faith.”

If Ariana is granted her request for a partition of sale, which would require the two of them to sell their property and split the proceeds, Sandoval wants to “receive accounting and compensatory adjustments” for the repairs and improvements he’s made to increase the value of their home, which they purchased back in 2019.

In other Pump Rules news, Kristen revealed on her podcast last week that amid Sandoval’s post-affair mental health struggles, Ariana, along with other cast members, reached out to him.

While looking back at a recently-aired episode of the Bravo reality show on the February 16 episode of Sex, Love and What Else Matters, via Us Weekly, Kristen described Sandoval’s comments about his suicidal thoughts as “terrifying.”

“I don’t want to hear that from anyone. And I remember hearing about this back in the Scandoval time in the spring of last year,” she recalled. “Not only did [Scheana Shay] reach out to him as she said she did — heartfelt, 100 percent — I too reached out to him. Ariana reached out to him.”

“A lot of us texted Ariana and said, ‘You realize we need to reach out to him, we’ve heard some rumors.’ This wasn’t a secret. We heard some scary things that he was thinking about. He’s also not the only one,” she continued.

On the February 13 episode of Pump Rules, Sandoval opened up about the hardships he faced after the reveal of his affair with Rachel “Raquel” Leviss, 29, in March 2023.

“If I f*cking say I am sorry and I cry then it is [called] crocodile tears. I battled with suicide [thoughts]. Don’t tell me what I felt,” he stated. “I was hanging on by a thread. The walls start closing and you can’t see past the hurt and the pain. You can’t dream about better days. I was getting to the point where I was like, ‘What is the f*cking point?”
