The Jax Taylor cheating rumors are up for discussion on “Vanderpump Rules.”

During Tuesday’s episode of the hit Bravo show, Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, Scheana Shay and Kristina Kelly speculated about Taylor’s loyalty to Cartwright, who are currently separated but still married.

The gossip began as the reality stars tried to determine why their co-star Ariana Madix, 38, stayed in an unhappy relationship with Tom Sandoval, 41, before he was caught cheating with Raquel Leviss.

“You don’t really know until you’re in it. You can’t judge because you don’t know,” Shay, 38, reasoned. “Look at Jax and Brittany! They were married and had a baby! I could not believe that when they did.”

“There’s still stories about him running around town,” Maloney, 37, replied.

Shay and Kent confirmed that they’ve also “heard” stories about Taylor’s infidelity. “It’s beyond,” Kent said.

Although Taylor, 44, cheated on Cartwright, 35, during their time on “VPR,” they stayed together and even aired their wedding ceremony on the show in 2019.

After leaving the series in 2020, they welcomed their son, Cruz, in 2021.

The mother of one announced their separation on her and Taylor’s podcast, “When Reality Hits With Jax and Brittany,” on Feb. 29.

“Yes, marriages in general are very hard and I’ve had a particularly rough year this past year,” she reflected.

The next day, Cartwright was photographed moving into a new rental property — despite Taylor telling Page Six they were living under the same roof.

That weekend, Cartwright threw shade at her ex by claiming he was “not really trying” to save their relationship.

Giving more insight into where they stood, she added, “Whenever you fight with somebody for so long, there’s only so much you can take, and you know, I deserve better, Cruz deserves better.”

“We want, like, a good co-parenting relationship and I think that me moving out and taking space to figure out if this is what I want is, like, the best situation for me right now.”

Page Six confirmed on March 8 that the pair were back to filming their upcoming “VPR” spinoff, “The Valley,” amid their separation.
