Madix’s early birthday festivities came just days after the bombshell third and final “Pump Rules” Season 10 reunion episode aired, revealing Raquel Leviss wanted to be in a throuple with the Something About Her co-owner and Sandoval.

Leviss, 28, and Sandoval, 40, had been secretly hooking up for months before Madix found out on March 1 and dumped her boyfriend of nearly a decade.

The drama shocked the Bravosphere and caused a divide among the cast, with the aftermath of the breakup playing out in front of cameras.

Since then, the two lovebirds have continued to flaunt their PDA and enjoy romantic moments together.

Madix claimed she has received letters addressed to Sandoval at their shared $2 million California home that Leviss sent from the mental health facility she checked into amid the scandal, which fans have dubbed Scandoval.

Leviss, who was best friends with Madix prior to the affair coming to light, has shown little remorse for her part.

However, she broke down crying at the end of the reunion, prompting even Madix to change her tune.
