Raquel Leviss ‘contacts FBI after receiving death threats’ as a result of the Scandoval with fellow Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval
Raquel Leviss has reportedly received death threats.
The 28-year-old Vanderpump Rules star and her family have contacted the FBI after receiving the hostile messages, according to TMZ.
The California native has been keeping a low profile since her affair with fellow VPR star Tom Sandoval, 39, who called Lala Ken a “narcissist,” was revealed in March.
Some of the threats were explicit in nature, with menacing messages online and over the phone threatening to “tear you from limb to limb” and “dump the body,” it was alleged.
The outlet spoke to a source close to Raquel who said, “It’s understandable why people hate her because of the Scandoval, but to elevate that hatred to the point where it threatens Raquel and her family is going too far and is disturbing.”
