Lance Bass Says Jax Taylor Is Stepping Away From Their Business, Jax Says He Isn't Amid His Controversial Comments

Lance Bass recently mused on his podcast that his business partner, Jax Taylor, should also be let go from Vanderpump Rules due to past racist comments that have surfaced.

One of the instances happened when he commented on the size of 90 Day Fiance star Jay Smith’s nose back in 2018.

Lance said, “He will lose out. I do not see Bravo keeping him. I have a feeling soon this will be done. It gets bigger and bigger.”

“It’s going to cost him everything,” he added “He’s stepping down from [our] Just Add X [business venture]. We can’t be involved and associated with any of this going down. We have to do the right thing.”

Just Add X is a cocktail mix company and unfortunately, Jax has a different side of the story.

“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,” Jax‘s rep told Us Weekly. “The team immediately followed up with a phone call with Lance and the team reassured and fully supported him.”

The statement 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.”

Bravo just fired four other stars of Vanderpump Rules for racist comments.
