Reasons Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s Separation Is Fake

Reasons Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright's Separation

Reality stars Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have had their share of scandal and drama in their relationship, but are they really over? Brittany Cartwright confirmed her and Jax Taylor’s separation in February 2024 during an episode of their joint podcast, “When Reality Hits with Jax and Brittany.”

Public doubts arise

Immediately, online chatter accused the stars of participating in some sort of publicity stunt, especially for their reality show, “The Valley.”

Fans took to social media to share their reactions about the separation, with one user writing: “Seems a bit coincidental with the timing of their new show … some fake drama? I don’t know… maybe I’m being too cynical.”

Another commentator seconded that notion, adding: “I know I’m being mean but sorry this Jax Brittany separated seems so fake to promote the Valley and listen to the podcast.”

Taylor addresses rumors

Taylor downplayed the rumors when he caught up with the paparazzi, insisting that divorce wasn’t in the cards and Cartwright had moved back into their Valley Village home.

He said: “We’re together. We’re living in our home right now. She was in a house for a while, but yeah, she’s back now.”

However, after that paparazzi interaction, Page Six’s cameras caught Cartwright moving into a “rental,” so it seems like the couple isn’t exactly on the same page. Is someone lying?

Taylor Jax’s history of infidelity

During his time on “Vanderpump Rules,” Taylor was a notorious cheater and single-handedly destroyed his relationships and those of his castmates. Fans may remember the Las Vegas scandal during Season 1, which involved Taylor cheating on his former long-time girlfriend Stassi Schroeder.

The former bartender kept up his tirade of lies until he ultimately fessed up, admitting that the woman had gotten pregnant with his child. He took things a step further in Season 2 when it came out he slept with Schroeder’s best friend Kristen Doute, who was dating Taylor’s best friend Tom Sandoval at the time.

After falling for Cartwright, Taylor wasn’t out of the dog house just yet. After initially denying the rumors, he later admitted to cheating on his girlfriend with coworker Faith Stowers.

Taylor admitted it wasn’t his first time being caught out. While he previously denied for as long as he could, he realized it wasn’t working for him in the end.

Cartwright’s forgiveness

Taylor’s affair with Stowers hurt Cartwright for various reasons. After he confessed to hooking up with Stowers, Cartwright got wind of a damning audio tape in which Taylor complains about their own relationship and reveals intimate details to the other woman. While Cartwright initially told her then-boyfriend to take a hike, he won his way back into her good graces on good behavior.

She said: “He was very persistent and just did not give up. […] I knew that I loved him still. I was trying to act like I didn’t.”

Beliefs on marriage and divorce

Fans are doubting whether Taylor and Cartwright’s separation will stick, given what the two have previously said about their beliefs on divorce.

Not only does Cartwright hail from a religious Christian family, but Taylor himself has spoken about his family’s aversion to calling it quits on marital vows.

Taylor’s commitment

On an episode of their podcast, he opened up about how exactly his roots shaped how he looks at commitment.

He said: “I don’t believe in divorce. My parents didn’t get divorced. I don’t believe in that. Marriage is work. I’m not saying every day is amazing.”

The “Vanderpump Rules” star mentioned that the bad days have helped make his and Cartwright’s bond even stronger. Taylor also emphasized how Cartwright is the only woman who can deal with his difficult personality, which became the ultimate downfall in many of his relationships while filming reality television.

Strength through challenges

It’s also important to note that their son, Cruz, helped fortify their relationship in the past.

Cartwright said: “I think becoming parents made us stronger too because I love seeing him as a dad.”

Taylor’s gratitude towards Cartwright

It’s hard to believe Taylor and Cartwright would throw in the towel, especially since Taylor has admitted that the southern belle is his saving grace. In an interview with Vulture, the reality star detailed the difficult aftermath of his father’s passing in 2017, explaining how the event left him in a fragile state and he leaned on Cartwright more than ever.

Cartwright’s support

While his father died just a few months after Cartwright and Taylor weathered their split over his cheating scandal, the Kentucky native dropped everything to help her partner. Taylor revealed that she did everything, even moving across the United States to help him take care of affairs in Florida. Since then, Taylor has vowed to be a better man for himself and his partner, which meant cutting down on drinking and partying to step into his new role as a husband and a father.

Recognition of positive change

His ex-girlfriend Schroeder noticed the change in him, too.

She said: “It was almost immediate, this incredible change and shift. I don’t even know how to explain it; he isn’t the same person he was before. He got the sense smacked into him.”

Hope for reconciliation

With some of their toughest battles behind them, some fans believe this separation will be as short-lived as the many breakups they have already overcome in the past.
