Raquel Levis has been hiding out with Tom Sandoval in LA following news of the couple’s bomb relationship, Page Six can reveal EXCLUSIVELY.
In our EXCLUSIVE pics, the 28-year-old “Vanderpump Rules” star was spotted out and about for the first time around Wednesday afternoon, wearing an all-black ensemble consisting of a hoodie, baggy jeans, a baseball cap, and a handbag.
“She looked sad,” an eyewitness told us.
Levi’s black eye — allegedly caused by fellow actress and now ex-girlfriend Shayna Shay — was visible as she strolled through a Los Angeles shopping mall staring at her cell phone.
Levis alleged Shay, 37, punched her in the face during the “heated confrontation” in New York City over her affair with Sandoval, 39.
Levis posted shocking photos of her injuries in court documents obtained by Page Six Wednesday.
Levi’s alleged that Shay, 37, bruised her eye after admitting she had a “month-long affair” with Sandoval, while he was dating Shay’s best friend Ariana Madix.
Representatives for Shay and Levi’s have not commented on the alleged physical dispute.
Sources tell us that Levis has been spending time with his loved ones — and ignoring texts and phone calls from Sandoval, 39 — because the infidelity scandal, dubbed “The Scandal,” continues to reverberate in the news circuit.
“Tom couldn’t track down Raquel for days,” says an insider. “He’s been asking mutual acquaintances if they’ve ever heard of her, but no luck. He can’t contact her.”
Another source adds, “She’s been completely ignoring Tom.”
Representatives for Leviss and Sandoval did not respond to Page Six’s request for comment about the couple’s lack of communication.
Sandoval and Levis saw each other on Saturday when they kissed on camera for a “VPR” scene filmed at the latter’s apartment in North Hollywood, Page Six exclusively reported this week.

Despite the acrimony, the couple’s relationship status is “complicated,” one insider noted.
Sandoval was spotted paying a late-night visit to Levis’ place – just one day after his longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix arrested him for cheating with the former pageant queen.
The Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras singer previously told us he exited the building through a private entrance once filming was over.
A day earlier, Sandoval and Madix, 37, sat down to discuss his infidelity over a scene filmed last Friday at the exes’ shared home in Los Angeles’ Valley Village neighborhood. (Both parties are still living there while they deal with their split.)
Sources told us Madix left the conversation feeling “gas-lit” by Sandoval, who became romantically involved with Levis last summer.
“He gave her many excuses as to why he wouldn’t stop cheating,” said an insider, adding that he “didn’t tell her about his affair with Leavis because he was concerned about the impact on her mental health.”
Madix was “heartbroken” and “blind” when she found out after a sexually explicit video that Levis sent on Sandoval’s phone surfaced, a source previously told Page Six.
The unfortunate discovery came the same night Madix backed Sandoval at a TomTom cover band concert in West Hollywood on March 1.
Leviss issued a public apology to Madix on Wednesday, blaming her indiscretions on her apparent “love” addiction. Meanwhile, Sandoval — who dated Madix for nearly a decade — took five days to issue a meaningful apology that fans felt was too little, too late.
Madix, for her part, has not yet addressed the issue publicly.
However, her Something About Her co-star and co-star Katie Maloney recently told fans that the blonde beauty was “overwhelmed by the public’s support.”
“Vanderpump Rules” airs every Wednesday at 9 PM ET on Bravo.
