Heartbreak is a personal matter, but “Vanderpump Rules” actor Tom Sandoval is attempting to mend fences following what appears to be a contentious split with co-star Ariana Madix.
After allegations that co-star Tom Schwartz had an affair with Madix surfaced on Friday, Sandoval took to Instagram on Saturday to beg fans to direct their “anger and disappointment” away from his co-star and business partner.
According to reports from People magazine, E! News, and TMZ, the pair split up as a result of Sandoval’s alleged liaison with Leviss. According to E! News, Sandoval and Madix had been together for nine years.
“Schwartz, my friends, and family should not be involved in this issue. Schwartz specifically only learned about this recently and categorically did not support my behaviour “Regarding the cheating issue, Sandoval wrote. This was a very private matter.
“My name may be on Schwartz & Sandy’s, but there are also 3 other partners and 20 staff who, in particular, depend on the restaurant for income for them and their families. Sandoval stated, “Like TomTom, I’m a small part of a much bigger thing. I apologise that our employees had to bear the consequences of my conduct.”
“Please vent your rage at me, not at them. They weren’t at fault, “Added he. “I’m going to stand back and take a break out of respect for my partners and employees. I’ll take care of anything else after some time. I apologise for everything.”
After Sandoval’s alleged infidelity scandal, the Schwartz & Sandy’s official Instagram page addressed “the outpouring of hatred that has been directed towards our business,” pleading with followers to think twice before posting “negative remarks” online.
The restaurant tweeted on Saturday, “Those of us who are not famous have sacrificed our time, souls, and money to make this restaurant a reality. “Because Ariana has always been a wonderful friend and a strong supporter of the restaurant, we are also disappointed by the current circumstances. We understand that you might feel a certain way, but we ask that you keep in mind that this company also supports the livelihoods of others.”
The restaurant said, “Our crew, from the servers and bartenders to the cooks and dishwashers, have all had nothing to do with this regrettable circumstance. “We aim to continue focusing on that endeavour,” the company said. “Our objective has always been to establish a location where our community can come and enjoy a pleasant atmosphere with delicious cuisine and courteous service.”
