Moving Up Not Out with the Help of SoFi

Fans believed the star was moving out of her home with Sandoval after Madix hit up her Instagram Stories with a short clip of her smiling in front of a stack of boxes, captioning it “ready to dip out.”

TMZ shared additional footage from the scene, where the same stack of boxes could be seen and Madix was wearing the same blue sweatshirt (that’ll matter here in a second), as paparazzi photos started to go viral.

About seven hours later, Madix took to her Instagram with a video (“ok here’s the deal”) where she explained, “I’m moving up, not out. Well, not yet, at least.”

She went on to add, “It’s time to get my financial house in order,” repositioning the camera to capture the SoFi logo on the sweatshirt she’d been sporting in that first video. She then promised, she’d have “more to share” soon.
