Is Jax Taylor cheating on Brittany Cartwright?

As a surprise to literally no one, Jax had not publicly admitted to infidelity in his marriage. But during an appearance in Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules, he confronts former co-star Katie Maloney about spreading rumors about him cheating. She admits that she told mutual friends about a “blind item” she read that was allegedly about Jax. However, Jax denies that he cheated on Brittany.

On The Valley, Brittany admits that, due to their lack of intimacy and a lack of attention and general affection from Jax, she sometimes wonders if he’s cheating on her. She admits that the idea of Jax cheating is still often in the back of her mind because he was unfaithful to her before, even if it was years ago.

Fans of Vanderpump Rules remember Jax being unfaithful to Brittany well before their nuptials. In a now notorious scene in Season 6 of Vanderpump Rules, Jax admitted to hooking up with their former co-star Faith Stowers. Brittany and Jax even temporarily split up because of it. And it’s something that Brittany hasn't just forgotten about, despite years passing since Jax admitted to sleeping with someone else.

Who is Jax Taylor’s publicist?

One of the rumors about Jax cheating stems from a photo that Jax shared on Instagram in February 2024, which showed himself and his publicist, Lori Krebs, looking more than comfortable with one another, according to some fans. When Jax spoke with Entertainment Tonight at the April 2024 White House Correspondents' Dinner, the rumor about his publicist was brought up, and Jax immediately shut it down.

“That was all just hearsay, and it's just a shame that that happened,” he told the outlet. “But yeah, no, nothing happened there.”

Jax also shared that he and Brittany are “just trying to figure things out.” If that's the case, then viewers might see what actually led to their separation play out on The Valley, though it doesn't appear to be something that stemmed from Jax cheating.

So as of right now, it looks like there is a possibility that they’ll work things out, whether it’s on television or not. Though we’re betting cameras will be around to capture most of the split and even the potential reconciliation.

Watch The Valley on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
