“There is no excuse, I am not a victim, and I must own my actions, and I deeply regret hurting Ariana. I am reflecting on my choices, and speaking to a counselor, and learning things about myself, such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved. I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships. I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.” In April 2023, Raquel checked herself into a mental health center to get help.
Tom and Raquel were still d@ting after the scandal, and while they were shooting a crazy Season 10 reunion that hasn’t aired yet. From 2014 to 2023, Tom and Ariana were together for nine years.
