Ariana Madix responded to Rachel “Raquel” Leviss‘ revenge porn lawsuit with a declaration on Friday that included screenshots of text messages she sent to Rachel after learning of her affair with Tom Sandoval.

As she requested that the case against her be thrown out, describing it as frivolous, the Vanderpump Rules star, 38, fired back at Rachel’s claims of revenge porn, eavesdropping, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress, and showcased their post-affair exchange.

“You are DEAD TO ME,” Ariana texted Raquel, 29, after discovering a FaceTime video of her former castmate and friend masturbating on then-boyfriend Sandoval’s phone, as seen in a report shared by Deadline on April 30.

“Ariana, I don’t know what to say right now besides I really f*cked up and I am so so so sorry,” Rachel replied.

But Ariana was understandably uninterested, telling her, “Shut the f*ck up you f*cking RAT.”

Ariana also included text messages sent to someone under the name “Daddy.”

“I called her after finding out and texting her the videos of herself from Tom’s phone that I took,” she shared, adding, “Tom took my phone and deleted them … [I] chased him all the way down San Vicente.”

As Ariana signaled to California’s anti-SLAPP law, which prohibits the filing of frivolous lawsuits, she insisted that she never shared the video of Rachel with anyone else, nor did she give it to her production team on Pump Rules. Instead, Sandoval deleted it before she had a chance to do anything.

“I did not send the videos to anyone else. Nor did I share, display, or show the videos to anyone else,” Ariana said in the declaration. “To be clear, I only saw the video of plaintiff masturbating in places secluded from others.”

As Pump Rules fans may have seen, Sandoval also addressed the NSFW videos in his own response to Rachel’s lawsuit, denying that he obtained them without her consent.

“These videos were created by Leviss and published by Leviss to Sandoval via a consensual exchange on Facetime, i.e., ‘their video calls,’” his declaration stated. “Based on Leviss’ own allegations, Sandoval merely saved private copies of the videos that Leviss had filmed and shared with him.”

“Leviss’ lawsuit is a thinly veiled attempt to extend her fame and to rebrand herself as the victim instead of the other woman while denigrating her former friend Madix as a ‘scorned woman’ and her former paramour Sandoval as ‘predatory,’” he continued.

Rachel said in her initial filing that “Scandoval” had “caused mayhem in [her] life, culminating in months-long in-patient treatment at a mental health facility and her departure from the show.”
