Did Kristen Doute really perform oral sex on Jax Taylor’s girlfriend Brittany Cartwright? That’s what viewers saw Jax claim on the Vanderpump Rules Season 5 premiere episode that aired on Monday night.
Jax told co-star and friend Tom Sandoval, who happens to be Kristen’s ex-boyfriend, that he walked in on Kristen performing the sex act on Brittany. Tom in turn told boss Lisa Vanderpump, who dismissed the claim as a joke. Later on, as Brittany painted their new apartment, Jax kept repeating his claim and even told Brittany that he doesn’t mind if she and Kristen got sexual together again. Brittany, however, denied that such a thing ever happened and told Jax to knock off spreading the lie.
What does Kristen have to say about Jax’s claim regarding her and Brittany? As the episode aired, Kristen posted a tweet that made it clear that people shouldn’t believe Jax. She wrote that she “went down” only to get her drink off the floor.
Yeah, I went down…
to grab my drank off of the floor. ???? #PumpRules

Yet in a recent interview with Bravo, posted on Monday night, Jax maintained that something did happen between Brittany and Kristen that night. While he didn’t repeat that he saw Kristen perform oral sex on Brittany, he strongly implied that they were doing something sexual together on his bed.
“I was drunk…I came home late that night and I had a little bit to drink and my buddy, well Kristen’s boyfriend, was sleeping on my couch and I’m like, ‘Where is everybody?’ and walked in the room, my bedroom, and they kind of just got up really quickly…I wasn’t happy but after a while, I was kind of just thinking about it, I’m like, ‘I don’t care.’ That kind of thing doesn’t bother me, I don’t know why, I just think it kind of caught me off guard. I’ve never had that happen to me before.”
Jax added that he doesn’t consider what Brittany did with Kristen cheating and that it doesn’t really bother him.
“My friends were like, ‘Well is that cheating?’ I’m like, ‘No, I really don’t consider that cheating.’ I don’t care if that’s what she wants to do…on her own time.”
Why would Jax spread a sex claim involving his own girlfriend? Just for publicity, ratings and/or to get a rile out of everyone? Whatever the reason, it seems that Brittany has since forgiven Jax for claiming such a thing while filming, for their social media accounts show that they’re still very much together. The night the episode aired, Jax and Brittany did a promotional appearance together on E! News.

Vanderpump Rules viewers were introduced to Brittany Cartwright last season. Jax Taylor revealed that after meeting Brittany in Las Vegas, they embarked on a long-distance relationship as she was located in Kentucky. They didn’t have to do the long distance thing for very long though, because shortly after meeting she moved from her hometown in Kentucky to be with him in Los Angeles.
At first, Jax’s friends and co-stars expressed skepticism that the relationship would last. Even Jax himself wondered if his relationship with Brittany was moving too fast. At times, he seemed to question the relationship and denied that it was very serious, particularly when he was flirting with Lala Kent. When Brittany moved to Los Angeles, he proclaimed that she wasn’t going to live with him, only for that to happen shortly afterwards. By the end of season 4, they were officially a couple and all of Jax’s friends had accepted her. Scheana Shay and Katie Maloney in particular praised Brittany for being a good influence on Jax and speculated that she would be the one with whom Jax would finally settle down with.

The season 5 Vanderpump Rules premiere episode showed that Jax and Brittany’s relationship was still going, so strong that Jax was apparently secure enough to publicly claim that Brittany had sex with someone else. While bartending at SUR, Jax told Tom Sandoval that he came home one night to find Kristen Doute and Brittany enjoying things “down under” on his bed. Tom actually wasn’t shocked, explaining that oral sex isn’t a big deal in Los Angeles.
When boss Lisa Vanderpump showed up, Tom quickly told her what Jax just told her. Lisa dismissed the claim but Jax laughingly told Lisa to ask Brittany about it. When Lisa asked Jax if he doesn’t find it odd, Jax replied that he believes it’s karma. In a confessional interview, Lisa admitted that a part of her wondered if it was really true.
“I mean if it was anybody else I don’t think I’d believe it but Kristen chowing down on Kentucky muffin?!”
Later, when Jax was making fun of Brittany for having oral sex with Kristen, Brittany angrily told him to stop claiming that.
“No she was not! Stop! I swear I’m going to punch you…It’s stupid, like my own boyfriend starts rumors about me…That’s not okay…This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. Nothing happened!”
In a confessional interview, Brittany admitted that she has kissed other women before while drunk but that nothing happened between her and Kristen, especially not oral sex, that night. Brittany proclaimed that she has no sexual interest in vaginas by stating that she’s “strickly dickly.”

A preview for the next Vanderpump Rules episode shows that viewers will continue to see more come out of Jax Taylor’s claim that Kristen Doute performed oral sex on Brittany Cartwright. The preview clip shows Lisa Vanderpump telling Kristen, during a dog event, that apparently she has been giving others more than they need. Lisa adds hat news travels fast. Co-star Stassi Schroeder quickly deduces that Lisa is referring to Jax’s sex claim. Kristen squirms and feigns ignorance. In a confessional interview, Kristen calls Jax an “a**hole.”
“I’m speechless. I have no words. Jax is a f**king a**hole.”
