Jax Taylor stepped out at his home in Los Angeles on Tuesday as wife Brittany Cartwright revealed a visit to Kentucky.
In photos shared by the Daily Mail on June 16, the Vanderpump Rules star was seen for the first time since the firings of his co-stars, namely Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni. This came as fans called for his own firing over his alleged past racist behavior, which includes an offensive comment about the nose size of black 90 Day Fiancé star Jay Smith and a false claim about his former co-star, Faith Stowers, who is also black.
As seen in the snaps, Jax was photographed in a black hoodie in his Valley Village neighborhood. While also wearing a dark hat and matching pants, he was seen taking out the garbage at his home as his Ford Mustang sat in the driveway.
According to the report, Jax attempted to keep a low profile as he tended to the needs of his house, which he and wife Brittany purchased last year before filming began on the recently-aired eighth season of Vanderpump Rules. However, judging by the fact that there were photos of him stepping out, he was not successful in doing so.
Although Brittany was not seen at all during Jax’s outing on Tuesday, she did resurface on her Instagram stories a short time later. She confirmed that she had left town and headed back to her hometown in Kentucky, where her mother is currently in the ICU after experiencing complications during bladder surgery.
In a post shared on her stories, Brittany posted a video from her farm, where a number of horses were seen grazing through pastures. One of the horses came over to her and allowed her to pet it.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, an insider revealed to Us Weekly last week that Brittany was feeling “overwhelmed” by her mother’s health crisis, especially since it’s happening amid the firings of two of her closest friends, Stassi and Kristen.
“She’s being hit at all angles,” the insider said of Brittany. “This week has been a lot for her. However, her sole focus has shifted to her mom. That is undoubtedly her top priority and all she is concerned with focusing her energy on.”
According to the report, Brittany is “very worried” about her mom but has a “strong support system” around her, including her husband.
“Jax has his flaws, but when it comes to being Brittany’s rock, he has not wavered,” the insider added.
