Former Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor is defending Raquel Leviss amid the news that she had an affair with Tom Sandoval.

Jax says Raquel can be easily controlled, and that’s why Tom targeted her.

“I got a text message. It said, ‘You were right all along,'” Jax told PEOPLE about how he found out about the affair. “It wasn’t shocking to me. I’ve known Tom Sandoval for 20 years, we grew up together. I just know his lifestyle. I know who he is, and I’ve said it many times. No one wanted to believe me.”

“There’s a reason why it’s Raquel. [It’s] because she can be controlled,” he continued. “Ariana’s a very strong, independent woman — that’s how Brittany is — but you can’t control her. And I think Raquel’s very easily influenced. I think he likes to be able to tell her what to do. I think she’s very codependent, and I think he preys on that. He can control her and she’ll do whatever he says.”

Since their affair was revealed, Raquel has reportedly been ghosting Tom. Both Tom and Raquel publicly apologized.
