According to Sandoval’s friend Tom Schwartz, he’s feeling the full weight of his mistake. “[Sandoval’s] okay, I think. Relatively speaking, I mean, he has a sense of profound sadness, rightfully so, that he’s a piece of s—. And to some extent, maybe he is,” Schwartz, 40, told TMZ at the airport Saturday. “But he knows he f—ed up, and the whole thing is just really sad.”
“Luckily, Ariana has a really good support system, and she’s with her friends,” Schwartz continued. “I hope she’s living a good life, just indulging. Hope she goes on a living spree. I’m just hoping this whole thing blows over.”
