“Vanderpump Rules" star Jax Taylor is firing back at Lance Bass'* claim the reality star “stepped down” from their new business venture amid his racism scandal.

Jax’s rep released a statement to E! denying he stepped down from their drink mixer company, Just Add X.

As The Blast previously reported, earlier this week, Lance talked about Jax on his podcast saying they ended their business relationship. Lance told his cohosts he spoke to Jax this week and they decided Jax would have to step aside.

Lance said there was no other choice because he can’t be involved or associated with that type of behavior. The business was only announced in May.

On the podcast, Lance said he believed Bravo would be firing Jax soon. Fans have been demanding the network take action against Jax for his past alleged racism. Former “Vanderpump Rules” star Faith Stowers accuses him and his wife Brittany Cartwright of past racist actions.

Jax told E! he never stepped down from the company. His rep claims, "Last week the Just Add X website had been hacked, showcasing some hateful slurs, which Jax felt horrible about. In an emotional state, Jax had texted Lance and the Just Add X team offering to step down from the company if that was the direction they wanted to take. The team immediately followed up with a phone call with Lance and the team reassured and fully supported him."

He added, "It was decided that Jax would continue to stay on the team and that they all had his back given these unpredictable times. The statements from Lance on the podcast today are not only untrue but also extremely confusing and shocking to say the least. Jax is still very much a partner and founder of Just Add X and supports the team and the brand whole-heartedly.”

Jax’s rep ended, “This has been a tough time for everyone involved, especially with the critical state of Brittany's mother in the ICU, their focus has been on that."

Lance isn’t the only one speaking out against Jax.
