Ariana Madix is filing a lawsuit against her former boyfriend and co-star, Tom Sandoval, regarding the sale of their home. 


According to PEOPLE, Madix hopes for a judge to force the former couple to sell the home as a “partition by sale,” which will allow the proceeds to be split evenly between the two. Madix also requests “equitable allocation of the proceeds.” This would allow for the proceeds to pay off any debts accrued by buying the property as well as attorney fees and title expenses.


Per the court documents, Madix is against a “division in kind,” which would allow both of them to keep ownership in the property. It would also allow them to sell their portion of the home to a third party. 


The former couple still share the home following their March 2023 breakup. During an August episode of Scheana Shay’s podcast Sheanagigans, Madix admitted that she still lived in the home with Sandoval. 


Despite the living situation, she admits that she feels less anxiety now that they’re broken up as she doesn’t have to worry about where he’s been or why he’s coming home late. 


She has expressed interest in selling the home as early as May 2023 when she spoke about the situation on Today with Hoda and Jenna.


“…I would like to sell that house and move somewhere, own my own place on my own, and start my new life,” Madix said.


The new season of Vanderpump Rules will air on Jan. 30 on Bravo.
