Kristen Doute is breaking down the exact moment Ariana Madix discovered Tom Sandoval was cheating on her with Raquel Leviss.

The “Vanderpump Rules” alum shared in Thursday’s episode of her “Sex, Love and What Else Matters” podcast that the group had been attending Sandoval’s cover band’s March 1 concert in West Hollywood, Calif., the night the drama and heartbreak unfolded.

“I was actually with Ariana and Tom that night — we were watching his band play at TomTom,” she recalled. “He’s done playing, and we’d all gotten up to just kind of chatter and grab a drink.

“All of the sudden, I realize Ariana’s gone for — it had to be like 20 minutes or something — because she left her coat and her purse.”

Doute, 40, explained that after she couldn’t find either Madix, 37, she learned the truth of what Sandoval, also 40, had done.

“So what had happened was, during Tom’s performance, his phone fell out of his pocket, and a mutual friend of theirs picks up the phone and hands it to Ariana,” she continued.

“The real truth is that Ariana had his phone, and she told me that she just had this gut intuition to look at it.”

Despite calling Sandoval and Madix a “trusting couple,” Doute said the Something About Her co-owner “felt like she had to look” — and sources have told Page Six she found a video of Leviss masturbating on FaceTime with Sandoval.

In light of the fallout, Doute said that Madix is “not doing well,” adding, “She’s numb, and she’s sad.”

Madix hasn’t publicly addressed her subsequent breakup nor her ex-boyfriend’s infidelity, but both Sandoval and Leviss have issued multiple statements about their illicit relationship since it first made headlines on March 3.

In an Instagram post, Leviss, 28, blamed the affair on her “addiction” to love. The former pageant queen later admitted to caring for Sandoval but insisted she was focusing on her healing more than their romance in the wake of the controversy.

Fans also blasted the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner’s initial statement for failing to mention Madix, so he issued a second one days later.

“I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really horrible about that,” Sandoval wrote.

“My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
