OMG! Some YUGE Vanderpump Rules news dropped overnight and it’s a shocker

Not one, but two Jax-sized bombshells

While we Aussies were sleeping, there were some meteoric developments in the Vanderpump Rules world, involving Racquel Leviss, Tom Sandoval, and Ariana Maddix.

However, it’s not just the Scandoval trio that has been involved in the latest ~*drama*~, former VPR cast members Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor have a bombshell of their own.

So let’s get stuck into both, shall we?

Racquel Leviss is suing Tom Sandoval and Ariana Maddix

As if having an affair with her boyfriend of nine years wasn’t enough, Racquel is now suing her former friend Ariana (and Tom Sandoval).

ICYMI, Sandoval and Ariana dated for nine years. They own a house together and Ariana froze her eggs because Sandoval wanted a family. Ariana and Racquel were close friends.

THEN, in March last year, Ariana found an explicit video from Racquel on Sandoval’s phone and discovered that the pair had been having an affair, and all hell broke loose.

Racquel quit the show and went to a health facility to work on herself, however, she’s since dropped a podcast. Now, legal documents obtained by Deadline show that she is suing Tom and Ariana for severe personal damage, citing image-based sexual abuse, eavesdropping, and invasion of privacy.

The documents allege that “Leviss was a victim of the predatory and dishonest behavior of an older man, who recorded sexually explicit videos of her without her knowledge or consent,” the lawsuit explains. It goes on to state the videos Tom had “were then distributed, disseminated, and discussed publicly by a scorned woman seeking vengeance, catalyzing the scandal.”r of an older man, who recorded sexually explicit videos of her without her knowledge or consent”

They continue: “Fomented by Bravo and Evolution in conjunction with the cast, Leviss was subjected to public skewering with little precedent and became, without exaggeration, one of the most hated women in America.” 

She’s seeking damages because, “due to a narrative deliberately fomented by Bravo, Evolution, and the cast, Leviss became an object of public scorn and ridicule.”

Jax and Brittany announce separation

Former Vanderpump Rules stars –and married couple –  Jax and Brittany are set to star in the VPR spin-off The Valley, which premieres later this month.

However, there have been whispers that their four-year marriage is in trouble, and Brittany’s now confirmed just that.

“Many of you guys have been asking me about Jax and I and our relationship,” she said on her podcast. “I just think it’s important to be real and honest with you guys because our life is definitely — we’ve shared so much of our life with you guys. So, I feel like … I don’t want to seem like I’m lying or anything like that so I think it’s important for me to say this.”

“I know on my last podcast, I alluded to many marriages go through rocky times,” she continued. “Yes, marriages in general are very hard and I’ve had a particularly rough year this past year. Jax and I are taking time apart and I made the decision to move into another home to take some space for the sake of my mental health.”

“I’m taking one day at a time,” she added. “I don’t know what the future holds, but right now my focus is on being the best mom to Cruz and I love you guys. Pray for us and everything will be just fine. We’re good.”
