Jax Taylor has come down with COVID-19 not once, but three times.
Just over a week after throwing a New Year’s Eve party with wife Brittany Cartwright for their friends, including some of their Vanderpump Rules cast mates, Jax was caught admitting to contracting the virus multiples times in a comment shared and deleted on Instagram.
After Gary Janetti, a Bravo super fan and the husband of celebrity stylist Brad Goreski, seemingly joked about the many who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 multiple times, saying that if you get the virus three times “they should give you like a car or something,” Jax weighed in.
“I’ve had it three times, I’ll take the car. Fricking miserable. Hope you have a great new year,” Jax replied.
Although Jax appeared to delete the comment soon after it was written, the screenshot below was shared on Reddit.
Jax’s revelation comes after he and Brittany hosted their New Year’s Eve bash at their $1.9 million home in Los Angeles.
“Don’t worry, we all tested negative,” Jax said at the time, via Heavy.
In March 2020, Jax vented about the pandemic on Twitter, suggesting that the virus was “punishment from the man upstairs.”
“I really think he’s tired of the way we treat people, he’s tired of how we treat the planet, probably thinks some of us are ungrateful. I mean I could go on and on.. but this is like a serious ‘time out’ for the world,” he stated. “When we come out of this, we need to change for the better. All of us need a wake up call, we need to change our ways because obviously it wasn’t working and we needed a punishment and this is it… the true test will be how we come out of this, and when we do, remember what it was like when our freedom was taken from us. Let’s show the man upstairs that we can do better for ourselves and humanity. He’d done so much for us, it’s time to pay him back.”
Also on social media recently, during a Q&A with fans at the end of last month, Jax was asked a number of questions in regard to Pump Rules. And, when one particular person asked him if he missed the show, Jax admitted he misses certain parts.
“I miss the first couple [of] years… we had a lot of fun,” Jax explained, via Heavy.
Then, after a second fan wondered, “What do you think of season 9 of Vanderpump Rules?,” Jax confirmed, “I don’t watch it.”
Vanderpump Rules season nine airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
