When asked about how she felt about Sandoval’s treatment of Madix and how he blamed her for his infidelity, she said it was “confused.”

“I don’t approve of it at all,” she said. ‘I think Tom is using Ariana’s mental health against her. And it’s very manipulative and messed up.

“I think he could have gone about it in a much more mature way,” she added of the former couple’s split, which she said Sandoval wanted to initiate but didn’t for months. “But who knows if he’s even capable of that.”

She recalled going through trauma therapy and telling her therapist she was struggling with her feelings about betraying Sandoval by sharing more of her side of the story about their relationship in her one-on-one interview.

She said she realized how Sandoval had manipulated her when her therapist asked her the question: ‘But didn’t Tom betray you first?’

After ‘thinking about it,’ Leviss said she realized he hurt her when ‘he asked me to lie when he knew I wasn’t a good liar and I expressed to him that I didn’t like it. don’t like to lie’.

She also said ‘the biggest way’ he betrayed her was when he filmed her without her knowledge and consent in the infamous FaceTime recording that Madix would later discover and unearth their months-long affair behind her back.

Leviss added that she blamed Sandoval for putting her in “a very bad situation with my friendships and this placement of this international reality TV show that my reputation was on the line.”

‘He knew I was going through this grief and I heard him say in his interviews, “Oh, Rachel really came into her own,” and that’s what attracted him to me. And (now) I’m like, “You a**hole, you could just let me be (and) let me live. Why can’t you encourage me as a friend?”

As for why she believes Sandoval has power and influence over her, she said at the time it felt like “he was the only person” who supported her.
