Tom Sandoval is SUR-ving a statement after partitioning with Ariana Madix.
On March 4, the Vanderpump Rules star addressed the breakup, which rocked fans and castmates alike.
“Hey, I understand and totally deserve your anger and disappointment towards me, but please go [Tom] blackmy friends and family from this situation,” he wrote on Instagram. “It was a very personal thing.”
He also offered employees at his new restaurant, Schwartz and Sandy’s, an apology for how his actions may have impacted business.
“You did nothing wrong,” he said. “I am so sorry that my partners, Greg, board, Schwartz and our employees must suffer for my actions. I will step back and take a break out of respect for my employees and partners. I need some time to address everything else. Sorry for everything.”
Shortly after his statement was released, some of Tom’s co-stars reacted to the news on their own social media accounts.
