Have Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright called it quits?
Following rumors claiming the Vanderpump Rules couple is on the outs after filming their spinoff series, Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky, Cartwright has seemingly added to the speculation by staying mum on their alleged split and traveling to Las Vegas with friends.
About two years ago, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright began dating after meeting in Las Vegas. However, Brittany Cartwright’s recent trip to Sin City wasn’t in honor of their two-year anniversary. In fact, Jax Taylor was miles away as she partied at the pool with friends and enjoyed drinks at Marquee nightclub.
“KY takes Vegas,” Brittany Cartwright wrote in the caption of a photo of herself and a couple of friends on the red carpet at the Flamingo Las Vegas.
“Feelin’ ourselves,” she later added with a video of herself and a woman named Cara Marie.
“Besties for the restiessss,” she wrote with a third post, a picture of herself and a male friend.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are known to share regular photos of one another on social media but, Taylor hasn’t posted any new photos of himself and Cartwright since May 17 and Cartwright hasn’t posted any photos of Taylor since May 13.
On Twitter, Brittany Cartwright hasn’t mentioned Jax Taylor since May 10, when she re-tweeted a post Taylor had shared of the two of them together at a gym in Los Angeles.
While Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have stayed mum on rumors of drama within their relationship, Cartwright re-tweeted a cryptic post shared by a friend.
“When life gives you [lemons], you go to Vegas and put them in @titosvodka and soda,” the message read.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright first appeared together on Vanderpump Rules Season 4. Then, as they wrapped filming on Vanderpump Rules Season 5, they began filming their own show in Cartwright’s hometown in Kentucky. As fans can see from the trailer clip for the new show, Jax Taylor travels to meet Cartwright’s family and quickly learns that he is quite out of his element on Cartwright’s family farm.
During the show, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright face pressures from her family to get married, which were first addressed during Vanderpump Rules Season 5. As fans may recall, Brittany Cartwright’s mom traveled to Los Angeles to visit with Taylor and her daughter and while she was in town, she questioned Taylor about his intentions. She also encouraged the couple to join a church.

Radar Online reported news of alleged trouble in paradise between Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright earlier this week. At the time, the outlet said the couple was at odds due to the ongoing marital pressures Taylor is facing.
“[Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright] had a hiccup with their relationship because of the show,” a source close to the reality couple told Radar Online on May 22. “He said he wants to marry her, but he’s not ready.”
According to the outlet’s insider, Brittany Cartwright’s reportedly “overbearing” southern family hassled Jax Taylor to ask his girlfriend to marry her and the pressure sent them into “rocky territory.”
Jax Taylor has had mixed emotions about marriage in the past but told Andy Cohen he was open to the idea of a future engagement during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live earlier this year.
