Tom Sandoval Counterattacks Ariana Madix’s Lawsuit Claims

Fans of Vanderpump Rules will be familiar with the ongoing drama between Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval. Despite having broken up, the two stars still live together in their $2 million home in Valley Village, bought in 2019. However, Ariana has expressed her intent to cut ties with Tom, and this includes selling their shared property. Tom, on the other hand, is putting up resistance and things seem to be heating up.

Sandoval Claps Back

Tom Sandoval made his stance clear by filing legal paperwork last Friday, stating that Ariana lacked sufficient evidence for her claims. According to him, Ariana failed to fully account for her damages, and did not act in good faith when she filed the lawsuit against him. Furthermore, he brought up a point about enhancements and improvements he’s made to the home, for which he demands remuneration if the home is sold.

According to the documents, Tom argues that his modifications and additions have substantially increased the value of the property. He sees his unique touch, eclectic character, and larger-than-life personality as significant contributors to the house’s value. Although this might seem rather far-fetched to some, it’s clear that Tom sees things differently.

Ariana’s Request for Partition by Sale

Ariana has made explicit her wish for a “partition by sale” of the house. This implies that the revenue earned from the sale of the property would be divided equally between the two. However, Tom is not in agreement with this arrangement. He prefers a “division in kind”, allowing both parties to retain ownership. By doing this, either party could sell their portion of the property to a third party.

Some speculate, on the backdrop of these developments, that Tom might be facing financial difficulty and could desperately need the extra time this arrangement could grant him. For now, Vanderpump Rules fans will have to wait and see how this intriguing saga unfolds, with Season 11 continuing Tuesdays at 8 PM/ET on Bravo.

Wrapping Up

This drama is certainly ruffling feathers and notably, raising eyebrows among the Vanderpump Rules fanbase. Fans are left questioning why Tom is complicating the house sale process so much. Ultimately, only time will tell how this house drama unfolds and what the future holds for both Ariana and Tom.
