Ariana Madix is ”numbed” after discovering Tom Sandoval and Raquel Levis’ relationship, according to her friend Kristen Doute.
The “Vanderpump Rules” alum admitted Madix “doesn’t do well” on Wednesday episode of her “Sex, Love, and What Else Matters” podcast.
“She was sad,” said Dut, 40. “She didn’t want to hear about anything anymore.
“She was like, ‘How does that matter?’” she continues, noting that online scouting had made Madix, 37, feel “worse” when she was already “extremely hurt”.
Doute compares betrayal to “death”, calling Sandoval and Leviss’ love a “devastating loss” for Madix.
Notably, Doute was with Madix at a performance of Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras on March 1, when the singer’s relationship with Leviss, 28, became clear.
“During Tom’s performance His phone fell out of his pocket or something. And someone from my bandmates picked up the phone and handed it to Ariana,” Doute recalls.
She said Madix followed her “instinct” to look at her boyfriend’s phone at the time. Even if they “trust” the dynamic.
“She got into his picture,” claimed Dute, who dated Sandoval between 2006 and 2014. “He recorded FaceTime screens of him and Raquel masturbating together. That’s the truth.”
The former reality star accused Sandoval, 39, of “not apologizing” to Madix and “lighting” her instead.

Doute added that Sandoval’s best friend, Tom Schwartz, found out about the infidelity when “Last month” and wanted the pair to come clean before “humiliating hell” from Madix.
“Too little, too late,” she said.
Although Doute has “barely spoken” with Sandoval since the scandal surfaced, Together with the bartender, they crossed paths at Madix’s house.
“By law he was allowed to stay at that house,” she said, claiming that when Sandoval was asked to tell Madix “a few hours in advance” before coming, he said she “can leave if she is unwell”.
