Are Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright Separated?

Though Brittany initially said that the spouses were living in separate homes, Jax clarified some of the comments in an interview with Page Six

"We’re actually together in our home right now," he said. "She was in a house for a while, but, yeah, she’s back now."

Jax noted that the two are not yet discussing the prospect of getting divorced. 

"I mean this is not divorce, but just taking some time apart, just trying to re-asses our situation," he explained. "And we have a child involved, and we want to just do what's best for our kid."

As for their current status, Jax shared that they're "trying to figure it out."

"This is all fresh and new, it's not evil and nastiness, it's just two people that are hitting a 10-year mark in their [relationship], and it could go one way or the other," he added. 

The Valley premieres on Bravo on Tuesday, March 19 following a new episode of Vanderpump Rules. Stream episodes the next day on Peacock.
