In the season finale trailer, Tom told Scheana Shay that he “was going to break up with Ariana regardless”, while in another scene Tom told Tom Schwartz that he “felt something he hadn’t felt in a very long time.”
In March this year, Tom took to his Instagram profile and offered a public apology to Ariana.
“I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process,” he wrote in the statement. “Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
