Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright Divorce Confirmed: Split Explained

Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are heading for a divorce. That’s what fans have been hearing for years, but now, it’s true.

After four years of marriage, former Vanderpump Rules star Brittany Cartwright revealed she and husband Jax Taylor are no longer living together.

Honestly, when Jax and Brittany got married in 2019, fans were skeptical it would last the year.

Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright: Is Divorce Official?

After four years of marriage, the Vanderpump Rules alums have separated. Not quite divorced, but it stounds like it might happen. Brittany announced on their joint podcast When Reality Hits.

“Many of you guys have been asking me about Jax and I and our relationship,” she shared during the Feb. 29 episode. “I just think it’s important to be real and honest with you guys because we’ve shared so much of our lives with you guys.”

But why? What has changed between the pair? Brittany answers that too.

“On my last podcast I alluded to many marriages go through rocky times,” Brittany, who shares 2-year-old son Cruz with Jax, continued. “Yes, marriages in general are very hard and I’ve had a particularly rough year this past year. Jax and I are taking time apart and I made the decision to move into another home to take some space for the sake of my mental health.”

Moving out? A rough year? Something tells us the Vandepump spinoff, The Valley, which will star Jax and Brittany just got a whole lot more interesting!

Jax Taylor & Brittany Cartwright Swore Divorce Would Not Happen Happen!

“We would never get divorced, we don’t believe in that. Not sure [why] people are saying that.

This was the response Jax gave to a commenter on Instagram back in December 2022. He has so far not made a statement about his split from Brittany.

Prior to this comment, Brittany hadn’t appeared on Jax’s Instagram page since July, which is sort of strange, considering the fact that dude posts constantly.

Then, out of the blue, the the happy couple were all smiles in a photo of them at a People’s Choice Awards after party.

Fans were quick to comment on the sudden reappearance of Brittany, with many taking it as a sign that the divorce rumors were bogus.

“You two look incredible together! Please tell me the divorce rumors are false! You belong together [red heart emoji],” one person wrote. And Jax responded with the above — and he’s kept saying they’re good ever since.

A month after that award show, the duo’s talked about their marriage on their podcast, When Reality Hits with Jax & Brittany.

They were quick to insist that they were making things work in their marriage and that they would continue to do so.

Because there was no other choice.

“We would always hear when we got married, people were like, ‘They’ll be together for one year,’ or whatever. Now we’ve been together for eight years, almost married for four. We’re trucking through,” Brittany said on the podcast.

Jax took things a step further.

“I don’t believe in divorce. My parents didn’t get divorced,” he said. “I don’t believe in that. Marriage is work.”

He added: “I’m not saying every day is amazing…There’s good days and there’s bad days, but that’s marriage, and that’s what makes your relationship stronger. We love hard. We fight hard. It’s amazing.”

Before they got fired from Vanderpump Rules for being racist, these two delivered non-stop drama as they careened toward the altar.

Jax was later fired after it was revealed that he conspired with Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute to have Faith arrested for crimes she didn’t commit.

Like we said — there’s messy, and then there’s Jax Taylor!
