Jax Taylor and his wife Brittany Cartwright recently spent time in Florida, but it sounds like they skipped a visit with a family member who lives in the Sunshine State.
In early April, the former “Vanderpump Rules” star and his family traveled to St. Pete Beach for a wedding. During the trip, Taylor posted a photo to Twitter that showed his 1-year-old son, Cruz, sitting on top of his shoulders.
“Been waiting my whole life to do this…. I miss you mom and dad,” Taylor captioned the pic.
Fans Reacted to Jax Taylor’s Twitter Post
Many fans were confused by Taylor’s post, because it insinuated that he lost both of his parents.
A Reddit thread noted that “Jax’s mom is still alive & lives 1 hour north of where he took this picture.” Jax’s mom owns the Bloom Again Salon and Spa in Duniden, Florida, which is less than 30 miles from St. Pete Beach.
Following his post, fans wanted to know the status of Taylor’s relationship with his mother years after publicly talking about their estrangement on “Vanderpump Rules.”
“Are u okay with your mom?” one fan tweeted.
“Hope your mom has met your little handsome jr. Jax,” another wrote.
“Appreciation of your parents kicks in when you become a parent,” another tweeted. “Hope you and your mom are good Grand babies need their grandma & vice versa.”
But another follower asked Taylor, “If you miss your mom why don’t you go visit her?”
“This is f***king WEIRD!” another agreed. “GO F***ING SEE HER! He likely wouldn’t regret visiting her but I can pretty much guarantee he’d regret not going once it’s too late.”
Some fans defended Taylor.
“Maybe – this is his way of reaching out,” a Redditor wrote. “You can miss someone and still not be ready to resume a traditional relationship with them. I elect to take the positive. He is expressing to his mom she matters to him. And that parenting his child makes him love and miss her more.”
And others said they could sympathize with Taylor’s plight, despite not knowing all of the details surrounding his estrangement from his mom.
“There does come a point where you can’t let that person keep hurting you, and your children,” a commenter wrote. “When there is zero benefit from all the trying and lots of hurt.”
