Yikes! ‘Pump Rules’ Star Jax Taylor Gets a $80k Tax Lien Before Wedding to Brittany Cartwright
One big part of married life is finances — and Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor is going to have to come clean about his to fiancée Brittany Cartwright. The 39-year-old Bravo TV star just got hit with an $80k tax lien, according to Radar Online.
According to the outlet, the SURver owes a grand total of $80,424 to the State of California, the Los Angeles County Registrar Recorder Clerk of Court confirmed. The lien was placed against the former model on March 27, according to records confirmed by the clerk.
Despite the fact that the former bad boy is clearly in a decent amount of debt, he hasn’t showed signs of slowing down on his spending. During the Pump Rules reunion part two, Jax and his 30-year-old future wife revealed they had purchased their first home. Bravo boss Andy Cohen broke the news, noting that the property is just a stone’s throw from costars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix‘sbrand new house — valued at $2.075 million.
Plus, the soon-to-be bride had a really elaborate engagement party on the season 7 finale of the hit series, then threw another big bash (this one off-camera) in the form of a Great Gatsby-themed shower in her native Kentucky. But before all of the partying, Jax bought his brunette bae a $70k engagement ring made up of 3.14 carats of diamonds.
Just about a week after the lien was filed, the 50-year-old Bravo host offered a bit of advice to Jax and his love, but he wasn’t having it. “We’re very smart,” the bartender told Andy. “You might want to talk to some of the other cast members on this, not me. I’m good. I’m frugal. My dad taught me well.”
Jax is reportedly the highest paid cast member on the hit show, being paid $25,000 per episode — or a generous $600,000 a season. Considering how much money he rakes in to cheat and throw hands with costar James Kennedy, it seems like he should be able to pay off this particular bill.
