AceShowbiz - Raquel Leviss' love for James Kennedy is unshaken despite multiple cheating allegations against him. The "Vanderpump Rules" star says she doesn't trust those girls who claim to have slept with her boyfriend and confesses that she loves him anyway.
The 24-year-old defends her beau when speaking to HollywoodLife.com. "I know James hasn't cheated on me in the way the girls related to 'Vanderpump Rules' claim to say," she tells the site. Doubting her co-stars' claims, she continues, "I also have to be suspicious when Kristen Doute's soul [sic] purpose is to ruin James Kennedy's life and doesn't even try to hide it. Then out of nowhere appears Kristen's little sidekick, Hope, who waited conveniently to confess at pride. At this point I don't trust anybody but James."
The most recent cheating allegation was highlighted in the December 10 episode of the Bravo series. During the Gay Pride Weekend celebration at Lisa Vanderpump's SUR restaurant, Hope revealed to Raquel about her alleged affair with James. Raquel then confronted her boyfriend about this.
A source tells HollywoodLife.com that Raquel actually is aware of James' cheating habit. "Once they officially started dating, the only time they actually saw each other last year during the time Raquel was up north in school, was the one instance when they filmed for 'Vanderpump Rules'," the source says. "While Raquel was away at school all year, James cheated on her with multiple women because he knew he could get away with it."
The Sonoma State University grad, meanwhile, claims that she kept in touch with James even when they're not together. "Even though James and I have just recently moved in together, we FaceTimed every morning and every night while I was earning my degree in Kinesiology during our long distance relationship," she shares.
The so-called pal further weighs in on the couple's relationship, "Of course, Raquel would love for James to be faithful to her because she does care about him. But she puts on a facade of not believing the stories about James cheating because she wants to continue being in a committed relationship with him."
The source adds that Raquel's motivation to stay in a relationship with James despite his cheating habit is fame. "Since she was a young girl, Raquel - whose real name is Rachel - has been groomed by her mother to be famous," the source claims. "It has always been Raquel's dream to be a celebrity and she made it her mission to become James' girlfriend by attending all his DJ shows and constantly flirting with him until he finally noticed her."
On the contrary, Raquel says she's a "actually a pretty shy person" and was initially hesitant to appear in front of the cameras. "When James and I first started dating and he asked me to film with him, I was very reluctant and really weighed my pros and cons. Now I am happy to film and enjoy doing it more. However, I don't LOVE being in front of the camera. My reasons for being in front of the camera are actually because I love my boyfriend. Not the other way around," so she claims.
