On Dec. 5, Kennedy and Leviss announced their split via Instagram in a joint statement. “After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement,” they wrote. “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.”


One Source Claimed That Their Relationship Was ‘Tumultuous’

Shortly after Kennedy and Leviss announced their breakup, one source told Us Weekly that their relationship was “tumultuous.”

“It was a tumultuous relationship,” the insider alleged. “[Raquel] still wants the best for him. They had a happy time together. … She’s also grown as well and this relationship outgrew her. She has grown into being a strong woman.”

The source continued, “They both want different things. They don’t have love anymore in terms of a romantic relationship, but they still have love for each other as friends. … They’re really trying to figure out what their lives look like now that they’ve split. They have a lot of admiration and respect for each other.”

Viewers can catch all-new episodes of “Vanderpump Rules” every Tuesday night at 9 p.m. Eastern Time on Bravo.


One ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Seemed to Have Concerns About Kennedy and Leviss’ Relationship

During a recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Ariana Madix admitted that she did have some concerns about her friend’s relationship at times.

“I say this with nothing but love in my heart for James, I think when he stopped drinking and became sober there were other issues that he was not going to — his refusal to go to real therapy honestly is a huge red flag for me,” Madix explained at the time.

However, during her appearance, Madix also noted that she didn’t think anything was happening between the two as she and Tom Sandoval had been with them at Disney World just days before they announced their split.

“We were just at Disneyland with them, like, two days before and I never would have thought anything was amiss, so we were very shocked,” Madix admitted.

During this season of “Vanderpump Rules,” viewers saw Kennedy’s romantic proposal to Leviss, which took place at the cast’s Coachella party. Kennedy named the themed bash “Rachella,” after Leviss, and surprised her with a 2.5-carat diamond ring from Tiffany & Co.

I cannot imagine what Raquel sees in James at all. He is such a “work in progress”, very insecure, substance dependent, and all around very immature. He is personable, but with a lot of issues that he is not ready to address seriously. She is very attractive, patient and supportive, BUT that is no excuse for “settling,” unless she too has a lot of unresolved issues of her own. Hopefully she will find her worth and James will grow up and deal with his issues like an adult.
