After a months-long promotional campaign that kicked off during the Vanderpump Rules reunion show, the premiere of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s spinoff series is almost here.
But it looks like the troubled couple won’t be watching it together.
For months, we’ve been hearing rumors that Jax and Brittany have broken up.
Now, a source close to the couple is claiming that Taylor and Cartwright are no longer a couple, and the breakup was far from mutual.
The insider tells Radar Online that Brittany dumped Jax during a recent blow-out fight.
“Brittany was fed up,” the tipster tells Radar. “Jax wasn’t boyfriend material.”
Asked what drove Cartwright to finally call it quits, the source says simply, “He didn’t treat her right.”
If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that Jax being a less-than-ideal boyfriend is nothing new.
But apparently, when she was caught up with life in West Hollywood, Brittany was unable to decide whether Jax was a jerk or simply a product of a culture that’s very different from the one she grew up with.
It wasn’t long into the couple’s latest trip to her hometown in Kentucky that Brittany was able to put things in perspective and realize that Jax is not the guy for her.
“Jax and Brittany had issues for months with her parents,” the insider says.
“Her parents didn’t like Jax and the way he treated her or anyone for that matter.”
Brittany apparently took some time to get reacquainted with her roots and left Kentucky last week having decided to break things off with Jax.
It seems the fight that took place not long after the couple’s return to LA afforded her the opportunity to end the relationship.
“Her family is her life, so she went back home to get clarity and spend time with her mom,” the insider added.
“Her family stress was too much and with the spinoff there was so much pressure.”
So we’re guessing you won’t be seeing Jax and Brittany promoting their new show together.
(Unless, of course, Bravo is encouraging them to keep their breakup under wraps.)
But hey, at least Jax won’t be returning to the singles scene alone.
As we reported last week, Jax’s ex Stassi Schroeder was dumped by Patrick Meagher on what would have been the couple’s fourth anniversary.
Could an ill-advised reconciliation be on the horizon?
For the sake of our own amusement, we kind of hope so.
