In December 2021, “Vanderpump Rules” star James Kennedy and his ex-fiancee Raquel Leviss took to Instagram to reveal they had broken up. On December 5, 2021, Leviss shared a picture of the former couple posing together with her Instagram followers.
“After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement. We love each other very much, but we aren’t in love anymore. We want nothing but the best for each other so please keep any thoughts positive. Sending Love,” read the caption of the post.
During a May 2022 interview with Us Weekly, “Vanderpump Rules” star Lisa Vanderpump shared her thoughts about Kennedy and Leviss’ split. While speaking to the publication, Vanderpump revealed that she is concerned about the professional DJ. As fans are aware, Leviss had been vocally supportive of Kennedy abstaining from alcohol.

The former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star then shared that she has not spent that much time with Kennedy after breaking her leg following a horse-riding accident in January 2022.
“I haven’t seen him that much. Honestly I haven’t been in touch with him as much as I normally am because I’ve been kind of laid up,” said Vanderpump.

At one point he was calling for security, because he was upset there wasn’t enough security around him, and at another point he was screaming for a water.
