AllAboutTRH breaks down the social media rumor claiming that Vanderpump Rules alums Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are living separately.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright may be gearing up for their big return to the spotlight in 2024 with their new Bravo show – The Valley but it seems like there may be some trouble in their happily ever after.
Rumor has it that Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor are living apart from each other despite still being married. The rumor first surfaced on Reddit and suggested that Brittany has “been living in a random house and they no longer post together” on social media.
A Reddit user shared;
“What’s everyone’s thoughts on this? It’s been sometime now that we’ve noticed them not living together. (Since Jax went on that bender with the Toms) Brittany’s been living in random house and they no longer post together.
I think at first it was thought this was a ploy to get people to watch their new Valley show but I’m not so convinced. It is a possible that they’ve actually broken up for real and it won’t be a good look for the new show since they’re the ‘glue that keeps the group together.'”
The post concludes with the user asking: “Did Brittany finally leave Jax?”
Days after this rumor popped up on social media, Jax Taylor got very cozy with his publicist while on a trip to Montreal with Tom Schwartz for some club appearances.
Some fans felt that Jax and his publicist were a little too close and comfortable with each other in the photo. While others thought nothing of the photo.
“She’s his publicist. Stop it guys!” one fan commented while a second added, “Jax would never hurt his family.”
“A publicity stunt because The Valley has not gotten any traction. Even if the rumors were true Britany would never leave him. I’m calling it now, that show is going to be terrible!!” a third fan quipped.
“No man wears his wedding band while posing in a photo with another woman if he was skipping out on his wife,” another fan wrote.
When it comes to the rumors about Jax and Brittany’s marriage fans are also divided. Many believe all this gossip is nothing more than a ploy to get some publicity and attention for their new show.
“So PR for their new show. Larsa must have called them,” someone wrote, while another agreed, commenting, “For ratings for their new show.”
“No way they just are looking for a Rumor to catch on for ratings for the new show that doesn’t look so good!” another fan wrote.
Jax and Brittany met in 2015 at Gold Spike Lounge in Las Vegas. The Kentucky native quickly moved to Los Angeles to be with Jax and first appeared on season 4 of Vanderpump Rules. By 2016, Brittany landed a job at SUR and became an official VPR cast member.
In 2017, Jax and Brittany briefly split while dealing with the fallout over Jax cheating on Brittany with their co-star Faith Stowers.
After enduring a rocky fall and summer of 2017, the former SUR couple were officially back together by December of that year.
Jax popped the question in June 2018 and the couple said ‘I do’ a little more than a year later in 2019.
They welcomed their son, Cruz, in April 2021.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
