Tom Sandoval is sparking romance rumors with someone new following his “Scandoval” drama. The “Vanderpump Rules” star was recently spotted while out with singer Tii at The Fleur Room Lounge in West Hollywood, causing fans to speculate the two were on a date, Entertainment Tonight reported on Aug. 10. However, Sandoval denied those rumors that same day while he was out with costar Tom Schwartz in Los Angeles.
The reality-TV star and musician told paparazzi of Tii, per ET, “That is a friend of mine, dude. Yeah, that’s just a friend of mine, man.” When asked if the two were in a “new relationship,” Sandoval reportedly scoffed and said, “You see me with somebody one time and all of a sudden we’re in a relationship? She’s just a friend of mine.” He also insisted on their platonic friendship, adding, “I just want more positive female energy in my life. It’s been lacking for a while.” Reps for Sandoval did not immediately respond to POPSUGAR’s request for further comment, and Tii’s reps could not be reached.
Despite Sandoval’s comments, he and Tii were photographed filming scenes for the upcoming season of “Vanderpump Rules” on Aug. 15 at West Hollywood’s Sur for a charity event, where they appeared to be sitting close at a table together in photos obtained by Page Six. It’s not yet clear how their relationship will play out on the show. Sandoval’s costar and ex Ariana Madix was also present at the fundraiser.
Sandoval’s rumored romance with Tii comes nearly six months after his breakup with Madix, whom he was with for nine years. The fallout of their split made headlines for weeks when Sandoval’s months-long affair with their costar Raquel Leviss was brought to light. Following his breakup with Madix, Sandoval issued a public apology on Instagram on March 8, writing, “I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
The aftermath of the drama between Sandoval, Madix, and Leviss largely played out in the media, but especially during their show’s explosive season 10 reunion. The trio came face to face to address the affair, during which Sandoval and Leviss both apologized for how their actions affected the rest of their castmates and, most of all, Madix.
Since then, Madix has been linked to fitness coach Daniel Wai. Meanwhile, Sandoval was last said to be seeing influencer Karlee Hale after photos emerged of the two hanging out back in May, though his rep denied the rumors to E! News. Exes Sandoval and Madix are expected to return for “Vanderpump Rules” season 11, though Leviss recently hinted that she may be exiting the show following last season’s drama.
