"I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through the process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana," the TomTom cofounder wrote after participating in a months-long romance with Leviss behind his girlfriend's back.

"My love for Ariana was stronger than any camera could have ever captured. Some of our best times together were never filmed. The same goes for some of our biggest struggles. I wish things happened in a different order and our relationship was not severely tarnished, and that it ended with the same respect with for her that it began with. I owed Ariana better," Sandoval's message continued to read in part.
