“The Valley” star Brittany Cartwright says her estranged husband, Jax Taylor, was concerned about her possibly interacting with actor, Tom Hardy. 

During the June 20 episode of their podcast, “When Reality Hits with Jax and Brittany,” Cartwright noted that she attended the Los Angeles premiere of Hardy’s 2024 film, “The Bikeriders,” on June 17. The mother of one explained she was excited to go to the premiere as she has had a long-time crush on Hardy. She shared, however, that the actor ended up skipping the event. 

Cartwright also stated that Taylor kept messaging her, while she was walking the red carpet with her castmates, Janet Caperna and Michelle Saniei Lally. She said her estranged husband tends to get “jealous” when she goes out without him. 

“You kept texting me last night saying stuff like, ‘What are you doing? Who are you with?’ ‘Cause you thought actually that I was going to find some magical way to be able to hook up with Tom Hardy at the premiere party. I was like, ‘What?’” said Cartwright. 

Taylor stated that Cartwright teased that she and Hardy were going to get married. 

“Then she texted me back, ‘You want to be a flower boy in our wedding?’ And I was like ‘You son of a [expletive],’” said Taylor. 

Cartwright also stated she messaged Taylor that Hardy had proposed to her at the event. 

“I said, ‘He just proposed to me. We’re going to the bathroom,'” said Cartwright with a laugh.

“I am not dating anybody. I was seen out with somebody. It was strictly just lunch,” said Taylor. 

He also stated that he and Cartwright have discussed dating other people.

“What we’re going through right now is tough. Marriage is not easy. We’re trying to figure out a lot of different things right now. Therapy. Separation. Maybe possibly dating other people,” said Taylor. 

The former “Vanderpump Rules” star explained that he and Cartwright are trying to “exhaust everything before [they] have to go down the divorce road.” 

“As of right now, we’re on the same page with dating other people. That is okay,” continued Taylor.
