The cast of “Vanderpump Rules” receives a legal letter from Raquel Leviss’ attorneys on Monday informing them that the recording “was done illegally without Raquel’s knowledge or consent.”
Raquel Leviss is pursuing legal action against her “Vanderpump Rules” co-stars in case they have a copy of the intimate FaceTime conversation she had with Tom Sandoval that caused him to break up with Ariana Madix.
Raquel Leviss claims that the intimate FaceTime conversation —which ultimately caused Tom to break up with Ariana Madix—was filmed without her consent. The 28-year-old had her attorneys send a legal letter requesting that cast members cease sharing it and remove it.
Leviss’ attorneys cited a California statute that prohibits the dissemination of “nonconsensual pornography,” which is considered an invasion of privacy. Despite explicitly requesting that the video not be distributed, the letter, according to reports, makes no mention of Sandoval, having taken the footage.
The attorneys reportedly demanded that everyone in possession of the tape immediately remove it from their phones, the cloud, or “any other means or technique in which the recording may exist.”
Last Friday, Madix saw the sexually explicit video on his phone and discovered Leviss and Sandoval had been having a “months-long” affair. Madix was left “heartbroken” because she had no idea there were any issues in her almost ten-year relationship with Sandoval.
According to the insider, Madix feels “betrayed” by Leviss, whom she thought of as a “friend,” adding, Tom and Ariana have no plans to reconcile.
