Tom Sandoval is thrilled ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix has a new man in her life — and hopes it helps put Scandoval to rest.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star — whose months-long affair with co-star Raquel Leviss was outed last month — told TMZ on Tuesday that he was “really happy” to see Madix moving on from their split.

“I love that,” he said when asked about the photos of Madix, 37, locking lips with Daniel Wai at Coachella.

However, he admitted that the exes have cut off nearly all communication amid the scandal, which he says was blown out of proportion by the “VPR” ladies, which include Lala Kent, Scheana Shay, Kristen Doute and Katie Maloney.

“It’s ridiculous,” Sandoval, 40, said, adding that people keep “perpetuating” the drama.

Although Sandoval moved on from his 10-year relationship with Madix while he was still in it, it took Madix one month to put herself out there again.

Over the weekend, she was spotted getting hot and heavy with Wai while enjoying a performance during the Palm Springs music festival.

One day later, the pair were photographed kissing and hugging outside the airport before the personal trainer jetted off to New York City.

Despite a difficult last couple of months, Madix says she is feeling “amazing” following her split from Sandoval.

Meanwhile, Sandoval and Leviss have seemingly hit pause on their romance, with the wannabe rocker telling Howie Mandel they are “taking a break.”

“We’re not putting any label on it,” he told “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast listeners last week, emphasizing that they have no physical relationship at the moment.

The revelation came just over one month after Madix found a sexually explicit video of the former beauty pageant queen on Sandoval’s cell phone.

Amid all the backlash — especially from her co-stars — Leviss later checked herself into a mental health facility.
