The Vanderpump Rules star admitted she thought her former boyfriend of nine years felt "entitled" to her body, adding he used their lack of intimacy to justify his seven month affair with her best friend Raquel Leviss.
“I feel like I’m someone who craves intimacy outside of just penetrative s**,” Madix said in an interview published on Thursday, June 8. “And that was something that I was deprived of for so long."
"As women, we might bring something up a bunch of times and then we just stop. That’s where I was at. I was like, ‘I cannot keep nagging this man to want to come home and spend time with me,'" she continued.
Madix expressed that although she told the musician she wanted to restore their connection, he failed to meet her emotional needs. “The way that so many men act like they are entitled to your body and entitled to s** because you’re in a relationship with them,” the 37-year-old stated. “I am not your Fleshlight. I spelled out what I needed, but hello. It’s a two-person situation."

"When he would not come or be home super late, I would ask him, ‘Where were you? What we were you doing?’ He would say he was at Tom Schwartz's. I would say, ‘Really?’ I would look at his texts and his phone. He was very good at concealing his double life and hiding the evidence. I wasn’t suspicious about an affair or about Rachel, but something was clearly going on with him mentally, and that is what I was picking up on," she revealed.
