Adriana Madix rushes out of her house and into her car as cheating ex Tom Sandoval drives home.
‘Vanderpump Rules’ stars Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval had an awkward moment on Saturday as the bare-bones actress desperately tried to avoid her cheater beau at their Los Angeles home.
The abandoned girlfriend, 37, was seen rushing out of the residence hall in such apparent haste that she neglected to put on any shoes after the bewildered bandleader returned from a night of performance wearing make-up by scene still stuck on his face.
Dressed in a mismatched gray tracksuit with her pants tucked into her fuzzy socks, Madix hastily threw her Ugg slippers and luggage bag into the backseat of her white sedan before coming face to face with Sandoval.
Reality star turned singer Sandoval, 39, seemed to be in a much better mood than her ex of nine years – he smiled before dragging his packed bags into the Los Angeles home.
The awkward moment comes just after the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman was caught cheating on her with his reality show co-star Raquel Leviss.
The two-stroke pair reportedly planned “for weeks” to talk to Madix about their months-long affair. Instead, the heartbroken star discovered it on her own while rummaging through Sandoval’s phone.
The couple split after the news broke, with Sandoval allegedly wanting to move on with his former mistress, 28.
“Ariana was blindsided by cheating,” an insider told Page Six, adding that Madix had “no idea there were issues” in her relationship.
Sandoval was spotted shipping huge suitcases from the house he shared with Madix despite not having officially moved out.
While Madix has remained largely silent, Sandoval addressed the drama during his concert at the City National Grove in Anaheim, Calif., on Friday.
“Have you ever been one of the most hated people in America?” the 39-year-old asked the audience.
In a TikTok video taken during the concert, an audience member could be heard shouting “Ariana!” prompting Sandoval to respond, “We love it.”
