The FBI, the country's top law enforcement department, has been contacted in the wake of the "Vanderpump Rules" cheating scandal after death threats were made to Raquel Leviss.
Ever since the former beauty queen and Tom Sandoval's affair came too light, Raquel and her family have been on the receiving end of "violent and graphic" threats online and over the phone, TMZ said, citing her rep.
Although Raquel understands that people are upset about the Scandoval, as it's become known, she rightly feels that death threats are taking things too far.
The FBI has been coy about its involvement in the case.
"FBI neither confirms nor denies investigations. Obviously, we review all allegations reported to us and encourage anyone who believes their life is in imminent danger to call 911," an agency spokesman said in a statement.
The scandal dominated headlines when it first emerged, but the pot was again stirred after the first part of the reunion show aired on May 24 on Bravo. Raquel appeared on the reunion show —which was taped in late March — but she checked into a mental health treatment facility afterward. She hasn't been seen in public since, but Ariana Madix, the woman Tom cheated on, told Andy Cohen that Raquel has been sending Tom letters from the facility.
Despite the bad blood between Tom and Ariana, they have continued to live in their shared home in Los Angeles but they sleep in separate bedrooms and don't communicate. Earlier in the week photos appeared to show Ariana moving out and filling up a U-Haul truck, but it was later revealed that the images were staged to promote her new partnership with a financial company.
"I'm moving up, not out. Well not yet at least. It's time to get my financial house in order. I will have more to share with you very very soon," she said.
Ariana has publicly said it's her desire to sell the house and completely cut Tom out of her life.
