Jeremy Madix took a lot of heat during Monday night's episode of Vanderpump Rules and afterward, his sister Ariana and her boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, defended his honor. 

After fans of the show watched Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Kristen Doute call out Madix for his aggressive behavior towards Schroeder at Maloney's August 2016 wedding and even labeled him as a "predator," Ariana and Sandoval spoke out in his defense.

Chill, Nice Guy

"He's really talented. He's just a really chill, nice guy," Sandoval explained to The Daily Dish on March 13. "He's a really smart guy; he's really driven."

Currently, Jeremy is living with his sister and her boyfriend in Los Angeles but when it comes to his time there, Sandoval said he's out and about working most of the time. Meanwhile, he and Ariana are also out of the house often due to their frequent travels. 

Either way, Sandoval likes having Jeremy around when they're in town.

"He's like my little brother. He works at SUR now, got him a job there. He does really well," he said. "He's busy with his photography and stuff like that, but he's just a really nice, chill guy."

When he's not pursuing his dreams in Hollywood, Jeremy works at SUR Restaurant as a busboy and spends time with his Vanderpump Rules co-stars, including Scheana Marie and James Kennedy. All in all, he's quite busy and Ariana has been thrilled to see him following his dreams and getting involved in different projects.

Backlash Outpour

Although Jeremy has at least a couple cast members in his corner, he continues to face backlash due to a number of reports against him, including a Radar Online report that revealed he was once accused of beating and threatening to kill an ex-girlfriend. As the report revealed, Jeremy reportedly attacked his former girlfriend after their split and made shocking threats against her life. 

During a flashback scene from a past season of Vanderpump Rules, Jeremy was seen acting aggressively towards Schroeder, hugging her and attempting to kiss her cheek while attending Maloney's wedding to Tom Schwartz. That said, Ariana and Sandoval have maintained that her brother is a great guy and refused to address the shocking allegations and charges against him.

To see more of Jeremy Madix, Ariana Madix, and Tom Sandoval, tune into the sixth season of Vanderpump Rules on Monday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo TV.
