Have Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz called it quits on their years-long friendship?

After attending the launch of Lala Kent‘s beauty line, Give Them Lala Beauty, on Wednesday, the Vanderpump Rules cast member took to his Instagram page on Thursday night, where he shaded Schwartz with a photo of himself and his “new bestie,” Brock Davies.

“Real friends don’t leave u hangin! #newbestie #outwiththeoldinwiththenew #newpartners #parnersincrime,” Sandoval wrote in the caption of his photograph, which was taken inside of a gym.

“I love a mess,” she said, along with a series of laughing while crying emoji.

Then, in his own comment, James clarified that his message was, in fact, a direct reaction to the photo Sandoval shared of himself and Davies, the boyfriend and baby daddy of Scheana Shay.

“If you confused about this post go peep Sandoval’s last,” he stated.
