"Besides the indefensible circumstances surrounding our relationship, my feelings for Tom have always been sincere and born out of a loving friendship," Leviss said in a Wednesday, March 9, statement about her secret affair with Sandoval. "Knowing how many people we hurt, I need to understand my choices and learn to make better ones."

"I need to take care of my health, work on self growth and take time to be ok with being alone," the disgraced reality star noted. "I care for Tom and I don't want to label anything or predict what lies ahead. Right now I need to heal."

The update comes almost a week after news broke that Madix discovered footage on the TomTom co-owner's phone of he and the 28-year-old partaking in sexual activities, in turn revealing their secret affair, which was reportedly going on since April 2022.

“Tom and Raquel are the real deal,” an insider explained of Leviss and Sandoval. “They have confided to pals that it’s love and they have fallen hard for each other."
