Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy shocked fans when they called off their engagement. On Sunday, December 5, the former couple took to their respective Instagram pages to make the announcement. This comes on the heels of the Vanderpump Rules Season 9 reunion taping. Apparently, Raquel had “reached her limit” and gave “back her $100K engagement ring.”
In May, James popped the question at the Coachella-themed proposal. Their breakup also took place as the Bravo cameras rolled. The cast filmed their reunion special, which will air after the Season 9 finale. There will be plenty of details about Lala and Randall’s split, as well as James and Raquel’s breakup news.
The reason why Raquel Leviss ended their engagement
New details are emerging behind the former couple’s split. An insider told The Sun that Raquel “reached her limit” with the British DJ. She had enough of his “nasty behavior” and “gave back $100K ring.” Their split was filmed in front of everyone to see.
Some fans have wondered if infidelity issues were the reason why they broke up this time around. As Pump Rules fans already know, James still has feelings for Lala Kent, who is also newly single. However, a source told The Sun that there was “definitely zero infidelity on either part.” Raquel realized she didn’t want to be in this relationship anymore.
She was the “one who ended things” and is “so ready to move on” with her life. The model “reached her limit with James’ behavior.” She feels she has already put up so much with him. Some Pump Rules fans would be proud to learn that Raquel finally saw the light and got out while she could.
“He promised he’d be better and he promised he’d change for her and watching the show back, she seemed to finally see how nasty he is not to just others but to her as well,” the source continued. “Making fun of her looks and basically appreciating her physical beauty. I think she just had her limit and realized she cannot fix him. And even if they got married, they would get divorced. And she didn’t want to deal with that.”
Earlier in the season, James mocked Raquel for getting a nose job. She also revealed that he accidentally bumped her nose when they kissed. However, fans feel there’s more to the story than she let on. Also, James was angry when his fiance got tipsy during dinner with their friends.
Vanderpump Rules star leaves James Kennedy’s apartment
Raquel Leviss shared the first photo of herself since they announced their split. She is moving out of the home but she did not reveal whether she’s now living on her own. The reality star took to her Instagram Stories to reveal that she’s already moved out of the apartment that she and James once shared together.
“As my dad says… my new home,” Raquel Leviss captioned one of her Instagram Stories.
In the photo, she opens the door to a storage unit that contains her belongings. Raquel wore a light-colored cropped sweater with olive green shorts. Her blonde hair was worn in a low ponytail. She accessorized her moving day look with white ankle socks and tennis sneakers.
