“The one-night stand was in August and then it became, from my point of view, it became an emotional affair. Which is still inappropriate but I didn’t think it was linear,” Schwartz stated. “[Then] in January, he came to me and told me that he was in love with Raquel."

“I was flabbergasted, but I’m not surprised because I think there’s a lot of people out there who knew it was an open secret,” Schwartz claimed.

“Tom kind of got flagrant. He was brazen after he told me he was in love. It was like a release for him,” Schwartz continued, claiming that he had to tell people Sandoval and his then-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, were on the rocks.

Schwartz noted that his bestie promised him he was "going to do the right thing" and he had a "game plan."

However, Schwartz got stuck in the middle, as rumors swirled he was the one hooking up with Leviss for a while until the truth came out.

“He’s like a shell of himself. He’s not realizing the negative impact this has had on his other ventures. Businesses, bars, the band,” he said. “He took advantage of my kindness and put a lot of people, not just myself, in very compromising situations where our integrity was at stake. I think — Tom has ADHD – and honestly, he became obsessed. He is notorious for having an obsession.”

“Raquel is Tom’s heroin,” Schwartz said, adding that he's "addicted" to Leviss. “It’s an infatuation of infatuations.”
