AceShowbiz - Tom Sandoval's mom reportedly had known about his affair with Raquel Leviss months before it became public. According to new report, Raquel met Tom's mother Terri back in January, during another visit to his hometown of St. Louis following her first trip the month before.
Sources tell TMZ that back in January, Raquel and Tom were at a bar with his friends when the place abruptly had to close due to an ice storm warning in the area. The group decided to take shelter at Terri's house, which was nearby.
The sources note that Tom's mom had never met Raquel before their January encounter, but she knew all about their affair. Terri reportedly wasn't cool with the couple's situation, but she was cordial during the quick exchange. The group ended up spending the night at Terri's house, with Tom and Raquel sharing the same room.
Raquel made her first visit to St. Louis at the end of December 2022, during which Tom allegedly gave her a tour of the city. His family reportedly had no interest in meeting her, knowing what was going on behind the scenes.
Tom was recently spotted with "Vanderpump Rules" alum Billie Lee as Raquel checked herself into a mental health facility for long-term treatment. The former pageant beauty's rep confirmed earlier this month, "Raquel and her family decided months before the relationship was discovered that she needed mental health treatment and ultimately decided she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling."
Meanwhile, Tom's ex Ariana Madix has sparked romance rumors with personal trainer Daniel Wai after they were snapped getting cozy while attending Coachella over the weekend. Weighing on his ex's alleged new relationship, Tom told TMZ, "I love that."
The "Vanderpump Rules" star also noted that he wants to see Ariana moving on, saying, "Yes, I do. I really do." He additionally claimed that he's "really happy" for his former girlfriend.
