Embattled “Vanderpump Rules” star Tom Sandoval is apparently seeking professional help amid the fallout of his affair scandal.
The Bravolebrity, 39, was seen Tuesday entering a building in Los Angeles that TMZ claims is home to many mental health offices.
A source told the outlet Sandoval met with a therapist for about two hours but noted that he’s been in therapy since before his dalliance with co-star Raquel Leviss made headlines last Friday.
Reps for the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.
Sandoval, 39, has been spotted a few times since news broke, including while making a late-night visit to Leviss’ apartment.
We’re told the secret lovers “want to be together” and even “kissed on camera” in their first post-“Scandoval” scene, which will be included in the later episodes of Season 10.
While Leviss, 28, has not yet spoken publicly on the matter, she did send her castmates a legal letter requesting that they delete a sexually explicit video of her that they may have obtained.
The video in question — which Sandoval is believed to have recorded during a raunchy FaceTime call — is how his girlfriend of almost 10 years, co-star Ariana Madix, discovered he was cheating on her last Wednesday.
After seeing the footage of Leviss pop up on Sandoval’s phone, Madix learned the two had been “communicating inappropriately for months” and promptly dumped him.
We’re told Madix, who has since deactivated her social media accounts, is “heartbroken” and “feels betrayed.”
Meanwhile, Sandoval posted a lengthy statement to Instagram over the weekend, apologizing to his employees and business partners but not to his now-ex.
“Hey, I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave [Tom] Schwartz my friends and family out of this situation…” he penned.
The Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner went on to claim that Schwartz — who hooked up with Leviss in the midst of the affair — only found out about their relationship “very recently” and “did not condone it.”
Sandoval then touched upon the catastrophic reviews furious fans have been leaving for the duo’s new bar as well as TomTom, asking, “Please direct ur [sic] anger towards me and not them. They did nothing wrong.”
He concluded his note ominously without directly addressing his infidelity or breakup, writing, “I need some time to address everything else. Sorry for everything.”
