Tom Schwartz opened up about his kiss with Raquel Leviss.

"We just don’t have any chemistry,” Schwartz spilled when Hirsch asked if their kiss was "bad."

While the TomTom cofounder claimed he "certainly wouldn't have made out with her" if he had known the extent of her secret relationship with Sandoval, he wasn't entirely in the dark.

"I knew that they had had an encounter, but I didn’t know that they were still going," Schwartz noted.

As OK! previously reported, the former model was stunned when Leviss and the rocker's romance did not end up going the distance after putting so much on the line to be together.

"Shocked, the shock of a lifetime. And I don't even say that lightly because I really thought they risked it all. They burned their lives down for love or lust, whatever you want to call it. It makes people do stupid things," Schwartz explained during a recent interview.

"I think it was lust under the cloak," he claimed of their short-lived love. "I think they really did at one point love each other. I mean, listen, from what I saw, they deeply cared about each other and were in love. That's from my perspective. You know, I don't know how they feel about it in hindsight."

Despite Leviss and Sandoval betraying Ariana Madix, who the former SUR bartender dated for nearly nine years, by sleeping together, Schwartz still felt their attraction was real.

"Retroactively, I think they have a much different take on it, and I think they're both kind of referring to it more as an addiction, a lust, or a mistake of epic proportions," he noted. "But you know, at one point, yeah, man, they were ... It feels twisted to say this, but they were really deeply in love. I think, yeah, yeah, deeply."
