Jax Taylor was a staple on “Vanderpump Rules” for several seasons before parting ways with the show in December 2020. Since then, Taylor has focused on other ventures, including fathering his 1-year-old son, Cruz.
When Taylor and Bravo broke up, there was a disconnect about what happened. Although it has been reported that Taylor was not asked to return for the show’s 9th season or that he was fired, Variety claims he claims it was his decision to leave VPR in the past.
Regardless, Taylor has continued some of the friendships he had while working at SUR and has shared much of his personal life on social media. Taylor and Tom Sandoval’s friendship didn’t last, but he has been spotted dating his ex-girlfriend Stassi Schroeder and her husband Beau Clark, as well as Lala Kent and their daughter Ocean.
Some recent developments suggest Taylor has cut ties with Schroeder and Clark, and a new interview seems to prove there may be trouble between the exes.
Here’s what you need to know:
During a meetup for The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast, Schroeder was asked which of her former VPR cast members would “ruin the fun of filming the most.” Schroeder was very honest in her response, saying on the May 23, 2022 episode of the podcast that Taylor was difficult to work with.
Schroeder went on to explain that Taylor often tried to “cut scenes and ruin them for other people.” She said Taylor would tell people that no one wanted to go to various parties or events being filmed for the show.
“He made the work more difficult,” Schröder added. When one of the podcast hosts called Taylor “unhinged,” Schroeder replied, “unhinged can be fun.”
Taylor and Schroeder dated for about three years and much of their relationship was shown in the early seasons of Vanderpump Rules.
Before the podcast episode was released, Taylor followed both Schroeder and her husband on Instagram. The unfollowing happened around the time Schroeder and Clark were flying to Rome, Italy, for their wedding.
Taylor and his wife Brittany Cartwright weren’t at the wedding and it’s unclear if they were invited. Schroeder was forced to keep things small for a variety of reasons, though she said her friends thought the whole thing was relatively cool.
“Honestly, everyone’s been pretty understanding,” Schroeder said on The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast. “We sent out an email, like, ‘Yo, times are tough, we can’t host a 200-person wedding. It doesn’t mean we don’t like you, but you’re not in my top 35 people,” she explained.
Taylor didn’t mention Schroeder and Clark’s wedding on Instagram. It’s not known if Taylor was upset about something or if there was a falling out, but his relationship with Schroeder and Clark appears to have ended.
