A source reveals that Raquel's lawyers have sent letters to all of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars, which state "the recording was done illegally without Raquel's knowledge or consent."

Citing The Law

The letter sent by the lawyers of the reality star also cited California law regarding the spread of "non-consensual pornography."

The letter does not point fingers at anyone, nor does it hold Sandoval as the prime suspect for recording the FaceTime video.

Only Two Were Part Of The Call

This news comes as a surprise since various sources have clarified that only Sandoval, 39, and Raquel, 28, were engaged in the call.

Immediate Action Required

The letter also said that anyone currently possessing the video must delete it immediately concluding with the statement that "this matter should be taken very seriously."

No One Has Seen It

However, an insider has revealed that the video hasn't been passed around between cast members and no one has seen its contents apart from Sandoval, Leviss, and Madix.

Sandoval's infidelity deeply affected Madix who was "completely blindsided by this; devastated doesn't even scratch the surface of how she feels."

Long Term Plans

The source also revealed that Sandoval was someone who Madix had planned a future with, "This is someone she thought she knew; someone she planned to spend the rest of her life with. You can't even put into words that betrayal."

Unaware Of The Dirt

Madix, who had "no idea there were any issues" in the relationship was completely "heartbroken" when she read their chats.

It seems like Madix didn't just lose a boyfriend but also a friend. Madix always considered Leviss her "friend" and was "betrayed" by her actions.

The rest of the cast members have been vocal about their opinions on social media and started picking sides in the messy breakup that will be revealed in the upcoming episodes.

A Look Behind The Scenes

The network recently shared a behind-the-scenes clip of one of the new episodes featuring a confessional of James Kennedy, and with the clapperboard positioned before his face, it has been revealed the episode is going to be titled Sandoval.

The Filming Resumes

The caption of the picture read "We have resumed filming on #PumpRules and this story will be unfolding on camera."
