Once upon a time, Jax Taylor was a lying, cheating, son of you know what but in last year or two he’s cleaned up his act and is truly a changed man.
So, when someone comes after him and tries to ruin his reputation for good – he’s going to stand up for himself. And he’s not afraid to get down and dirty when he does it.
In a post on Instagram, Jax reveals that someone has been trying very hard to take him down.
Jax explains, “In the past 24 hours a certain individual who claims to have a team behind them has tried very hard to slander my name and reputation. They have gone out of their way to reach out to every company I’ve ever partnered with, my network, my management team, and my family, claiming that I never served in the navy and I would be facing immeasurable repercussions for stolen valor. I typically don’t waste my time with trolls like these, but this person has gone too far without knowing or investigating the facts.”
These shocking claims forced the Vanderpump Rules star to be real about his service in the Navy, which isn’t something he has ever talked about in eight years of reality TV.
“I served in the United States Navy in 1999 USS Theodore Roosevelt CVN-71stationed in Norfolk, VA. I attended school at Lackland Air Force in San Antonio, TX and Boot Camp in Great Lakes, Chicago IL,” Jax confessed.
Adding that he completed “one tour” in “Kosovo.”
Jax wrapped by vowing to take down the person who tried to “tarnish” his time in the Navy.
“My entire family, especially my father was extremely proud of me and I remember the tears in his eyes watching me at my graduation ceremony. How dare someone try to tarnish such an integral part of my life and spew such wrongful lies and accusations. I have not taken this lightly and consequences will be dealt with,” Jax concluded.
In the comments section of his post, Jax received loads of support from his fans and famous friends.
While replying to comments Jax made it clear that he plans to take legal action this person.
So, who is the person that tried to take Jax down?
Many believe that it was Kristen Doute, who apparently talked about Jax only going to Bootcamp on The LadyGang podcast but that’s not the case.
To be clear, Kristen isn’t involved in this drama at all.
After Jax’s initial post last night, he revealed, in a now-deleted post, the woman who was trying to take him down.
Jax deleted the post shortly after but AllAboutTRH captured a screenshot of it before it disappeared.
“This was the women who came after me regarding my naval career. Have fun with it. I’ll leave it up for a bit,” Jax captioned the photo of Julia L’s Instagram account.

Wow, that’s all I have to say. I’m glad Jax stood up for himself and didn’t let some perpetuate lies about him.
