Rachel “Raquel” Leviss’ birthday present to herself is boundaries. After her ex Tom Sandoval publicly wished her a happy birthday Tuesday, the “Vanderpump Rules” alum swiftly blocked her former co-star.
Leviss then shared a screenshot of Sandoval’s blocked account to her Instagram Story and added a GIF that read, “OK bye!”
Sandoval had commented on Leviss’ latest Instagram Reel, which showed her spending the day at a flower farm, “Happy Birthday Rachel, I really hope ur finding peace and happiness. Miss u friend.”
The Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman opted to refer to the former beauty pageant queen by her birth name, which she recently adopted as her preferred moniker.
The ex-Bravolebrity, who turned 29, was not the only one who didn’t receive the message well, as fans took to the replies to drag Sandoval, 41, for his bizarre PDA.
“R U OK. Hope you’re finding peace? LOL you’re a big proponent on why the girls [sic] doesn’t have peace. This coulda been a text or dm my dude,” one critic remarked, as another called him “so manipulative” and urged him to “go away.”
Leviss formally quit “Vanderpump Rules” last month, while Season 11 was in production, following her months-long affair with Sandoval.
The pair’s dalliance was exposed in March after his girlfriend of nine years, Ariana Madix, discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss, her then-friend, on his phone.
Though the illicit lovebirds remained romantically involved amid the fallout of Scandoval, they broke up in May while Leviss was seeking treatment at a mental health facility in her home state of Arizona.
Sandoval, for his part, has gone on to date several other women since his respective splits from both Madix, 38, and Leviss.
Most recently the bar owner has been linked to a Los Angeles-based musician named Tii.
