Many fans are wondering if something is brewing between Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. The couple, who just exchanged vows last year, have been in the midst of serious baby talk as many of their friends, including Lala Kent and Stassi Schroeder, are prepping for their own weddings and babies. However, as reported by Radar Online, the couple has been having a rough couple of month filled with bickering. According to a source with Radar, “It has been one thing after another.”
Jax was also spotted out and about without his wedding ring, adding even more fuel to the “trouble in paradise” fire. Camera’s spotted Taylor outside of a 7 Eleven, where he was trading out some lottery tickets, without his most important piece of jewelry. Later in the day, he was also spotted without the ring while picking up some laundry at the dry cleaners. While Jax has not publicly made comment about the absence of his ring, his publicist says there’s nothing to worry about.
The rep released a statement saying, “Jax goes to the gym several times a week and does not wear his wedding ring, like most men.” While it is possible that Jax had hit the gym before his other outings, given Jax’s track record, fans aren’t fully convinced that all is well between Cartwright and Taylor. Regardless, the rep assured fans that the pair are actually enjoying their first year as a married couple, and anyone who states otherwise is wrong.
The timing of “ring-gate” is ironic given the current season that is airing of “Vanderpump Rules”. Fans are watching as Taylor and Cartwright prep for their wedding nuptials with bachelor and bachelorette parties that have included strippers and seemingly sketchy behavior from Taylor.
The source at Radar also mentioned, “Brittany wanted to have this magical and over-the-top wedding so that she could have a dream wedding that would play out on TV…And although it was everything that she ever wanted and more, the magic didn’t last long at all.”
There is also rumor that Brittany has not been able to forgive Jax’s past, with the source adding, “She thought that getting married would make all of her suspicions go away, but it hasn’t…All it has really done was give her a ring and more reason to worry that something may happen.”
Money issues are apparently also rearing their ugly head, as Jax is concerned about money, and Britney could care less. “Jax is freaking out about money…Now that they are married, all of his money is hers and all of her money is his and it has been causing some major issues because she loves to spend,” the source at Radar explained.
With baby talk becoming more frequent, it will be interesting to see where this couple lands within the next few months.
