‘Manipulative’ Raquel Leviss used me as ‘scapegoat’

Peter Madrigal is furious with Raquel Leviss for using him as a “pawn” and a “scapegoat” in her affair with Tom Sandoval.

The 38-year-old “Vanderpump Rules” star blasted his “manipulative” co-star in a clip from Hollywood Life’s upcoming “Pay Attention Puh-Lease!” podcast episode.

Madrigal claimed in the interview that by making out with him in 2022, Leviss “dragged” him into Scandoval.

Although the former Sur busser was not present at the Seasion 10 reunion, filmed on March 23, he believes he “should’ve been.”

He has “cut” Leviss and Tom Sandoval out of his life since their affair.

He alleged, “I was [the one] used to cover up this illicit affair.”

Madrigal noted that he unfollowed both of his embattled “Vanderpump Rules” co-stars on Instagram after news broke that Sandoval cheated on longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix with Leviss.

“I cut people off,” he said. “I don’t know what kind of person would do something like this. That’s not someone I want to be associated with.”

Madrigal called Leviss’ specific betrayal “terrifying.”

He explained that she turned “out to be something completely different” from the “nice person” she presented herself as.

“Why would [she] sit around at [her] apartment chilling with Ariana, who is [her] friend, and be banging her man behind her back?” Madrigal asked.

The reality star has slammed Leviss on multiple occasions since Sandoval’s infidelity made headlines earlier this month.

On March 11, Madrigal told “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend” listeners that he wants Leviss to “go f–k [her]self.”

He called the Bravolebrity out for referring to him as a “starting pony to get back into the dating world” after her and James’ Kennedy’s breakup on “Watch What Happens Live.”

Madrigal said, “I always keep an even keel, but, my God, who the hell do you think you are?”

While Leviss has yet to comment on Madrigal’s disses, she has said sorry to Madix, 37, via Instagram.

However, Leviss told a paparazzo last week that the former bartender didn’t receive her apology “very well.”

As for her relationship with Sandoval, Leviss claimed they are “taking a break for now” — only to dine at Musso & Frank Grill with the singer after filming the reunion.

Notably, Leviss was seen leaving Sandoval’s home Wednesday afternoon after seemingly spending the night with him while Madix was out of town.
