Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright Divorce Rumors: ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Caught Without Wedding Ring?
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have showcased their relationship in front of the Vanderpump Rules cameras. The couple even filmed their wedding for the upcoming Season 8 of the Bravo reality series, but there are rumors that the marriage is already rocky and new photos of Taylor have only fueled those theories.
Divorces Rumors Spread Shortly After Wedding
Taylor and Cartwright tied the knot on Saturday, June 29 in a fairytale themed wedding in Versaille, Kentucky, where the bride is from. Lance Bass was the one to officiate the wedding and the ceremony even had tributes to Taylor’s late father that died of cancer last year and Cartwright’s late grandfather too.
The couple led a turbulent relationship that involved infidelity, but both were able to resolve the problems and get past them.
“We’re stronger and happier than we’ve ever been,” Brittany told People just before the nuptials. “We’ve been through a lot, but we came out on the other side. I feel like we’ve just gotten stronger and stronger as we’ve had to deal with any kind of negative situations that come our way. I feel like we’ve grown from it.”
A month after Taylor and Cartwright became husband and wife there was a report that they were “unhappy” in their marriage.
“She thought that getting married would make all of her suspicions [about Jax cheating] go away, but it hasn’t. All it has really done was give her a ring and more reason to worry that something may happen,” an insider told Radar Online.
Why Isn’t Jax Taylor Wearing His Wedding Ring?
After the report of “unhappiness” came out, Taylor was spotted in public not wearing his eternity band that has 2 carats of white diamonds which many people assumed was because their problems were only getting bigger. It turns out that any rumor around the newlyweds is merely speculation and the couple is not facing any issues.
“Jax and Brittany are actually doing better than ever,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Marriage has brought them even closer together and they’re confused why people are making such a big deal out of Jax being spotted without his ring. He was out doing things and working out and just forgot to put it on and people are turning it into something it’s not. It means absolutely nothing and they find it laughable.”
Jax Taylor Has More Drama In His Life
While Taylor’s marriage might be fine, it’s his friendships that are tumbling. It was reported that shortly after Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules wrapped production, he stopped following some of his co-stars on Instagram indicating that a major blowout has occurred.
Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval and Kristen Doute seem to be on the outs with Taylor, which is complicating things for his wife Cartwright.
“Filming was really stressful this year not just for them, but the entire cast, and Brittany is really standing by Jax and supporting him even with his recent fall out with Sandoval and Ariana. It’s hard for Brittany because she loves Sandoval and Ariana and is trying her best to stay out of it, but she’s supporting Jax. It hasn’t been easy for him,” the tipster also told Hollywood Life.
Doute recently addressed the fallout on Twitter clarifying that Taylor did not unfollow her, but he actually blocked her.
“I know [E! News] has been saying that Jax unfollowed some of us because of something regarding this wedding,” she wrote on Twitter. “Let me clear the air: Jax did not unfollow me, Jax blocked me. Why? NO CLUE. But I promise you it has nothing to do with beautiful Britt or their wedding.”
Madix and Cartwright also debunked rumors that their disagreement had to do with Lance Bass, who officiated Taylor’s wedding.
Sandoval’s girlfriend, Madix, commented on Instagram: “Love y’all, but you need better sources.”
Vanderpump Rules is set to return to Bravo sometime this fall.
