Sandoval is not avoiding Leviss despite the recent controversy surrounding their relationship. The TomTom restaurant co-owner was seen as he arrived at the Sonoma State University graduate's L.A. apartment on Saturday night.
He Is On A Low
Sandoval kept a low profile in all-black ensembles as he moved through the night. Information from TMZ revealed that the duo was together earlier in the day filming their Bravo series.

Sandoval Faced Backlash
Sources later confirmed that the affair has been going on for months and the revelation left Madix blindsided and heartbroken.

A Look At Leviss' Love Life So Far
Leviss joined Vanderpump Rules in season 5 and her love life has caused plenty of waves since then. The California native was with James Kennedy when she joined the show. The DJ and the former pageant queen got engaged in May 2021.
She And Kennedy Were Engaged
This came after more than five years of dating. Following the engagement, Kennedy posted photos of himself kissing Leviss on social media, while he noted in the caption that the love of his life said yes.
She Was Elated
Leviss for her part gushed about the proposal on her social media. The TV star made it known to fans that Kennedy popped the question at the iconic Empire Polo Fields of RACHELLA.
It Did Not Last Long
However, less than a year later they called it quits. The former couple explained that they decided to go their separate ways because they had different goals. After calling it quits, Leviss went on to date other co-stars.
Leviss And Peter Madrigal
After Madix and Kennedy's 5 years relationship ended, the former kinesiology student went on several dates with SUR manager Pete Madrigal in 2022. She revealed to Us Weekly that Madrigal asked her out after her relationship with Kennedy ended and she said yes.
The Romance Was Short-lived
Leviss also said: "I think it was more so just saying yes to him asking me out and just trying that whole thing out." Meanwhile, the affair did not last as they were nobody together shortly after the announcement. Leviss then moved on with Tom Schwartz
Leviss and Schwartz connected at Shay's wedding in August 2022. The Schwartz & Sandy's cofounder explained in an interview that his attraction to Leviss was a thing of the moment, and he "kind of disappeared into that kiss." While Schwartz confessed to the passion they shared, he was not sure the chemistry could be enough for a long-term romance.
In September 2022, Samantha Saunders accused her husband Oliver of cheating on her with multiple women throughout their marriage. Leviss was one of the ladies whom Samantha claimed her husband hooked up with. She also claimed they had planned to go on a date.
Her Drama With Saunders
Oliver noted at the time that he and Samantha had split, but Leviss never publicly addressed the alleged affair. It is unclear who Leviss is currently dating as she is also yet to comment on the recent controversy surrounding her relationship with Sandoval.
