In his lengthy Instagram post, the VPR star asked fans to leave his “friends and family out of this situation.”
He wrote: “This is a very personal thing.”
Tom begged his followers to direct their “anger towards me” because he does not want others to “suffer for my actions.”
The Bravo star went on: “I will be taking a step back and taking a hiatus out of respect for my employees and partners.”
“I need some time to address everything else. Sorry for everything,” he concluded.
His post came after he and Ariana called it quits amid the cheating rumors.
The restaurant owner is said to have had an affair with Raquel Leviss, who also had a fling with Tom’s business partner, Tom Schwartz.
Ariana reportedly discovered the cheating rumors were true and ended things with Tom, according to TMZ.
A source told the publication that producers got word of what went down.
The producers decided to continue filming the entire cast and document the fallout.
The drama might possibly air during the current 10th season of the Bravo show.
Although Ariana recently went to see Schwartz’s band play and supported the release of his new single, the exes have been on the rocks.
The former couple has been in a relationship since 2013.
Raquel recently uploaded a photo with Schwartz at his new restaurant, Schwartz and Sandy’s.
In the snapshot, Tom stood with his arm around Raquel and flashed a peace sign.
He wrote: “Just ’cause,”
While Raquel has been named as the person who got in the middle between Ariana and Tom, she has been linked to Schwartz.
Schwartz and Raquel previously made out at Scheana Shay’s wedding after his split from Katie Maloney, who was unhappy about them hooking up.
Upon hearing the news of Ariana and Tom’s breakup, Katie posted two clown face emojis on her Instagram Stories.
When news of the breakup and cheating allegations came out, Raquel’s ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, posted to Instagram: “Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.”
She ended their engagement back in December 2021 admitting her “heart wasn’t fully in it.”
Fans previously suspected Tom and Ariana were in an open relationship.
Ariana shut down these polyamorous rumors and tweeted: “We don’t have an open relationship.”
“I’m really not that cool. Thought that was obvious. Bisexual ≠ polyamorous,” she added.
