‘Vanderpump Rules': Jax Taylor’s Mysterious Miami Past Revealed

Tue, February 4, 2014 11:21am EDT by 20 Comments

Did Jax really change his name when he moved to Los Angeles? Gather round, children, it’s time for Jax History 101.

Following the explosive season finale of Vanderpump Rules, bartender Jax Taylor‘s future as West Hollywood restaurant SUR remains in question — but we’re more curious about his past at the moment. Jax and boss-lady Lisa Vanderpump appeared on the Feb. 3 episode of Watch What Happens Live, and surprise-caller Tom Sandoval dropped a heck of a bomb on the unsuspecting guests.

“Why did you move from Miami to L.A. and change your name from Jason to Jax?” Tom asked, a question that really seemed to irritate his former best friend.

Um… What?!

Given that revelation — which we’re hoping will be expanded upon during the two-part Vanderpump Rules reunion — we decided to see what else we could dig up about Jax’s history, using the two best resources at our disposal: the internet, and our weirdly obsessive retention of facts revealed on the show.

Stassi Quitting The Show?

Jax Taylor’s Past: Fun Facts About His Life Before ‘Vanderpump Rules’

1. Upon moving to Los Angeles, Jax’s first roommate was none other than Channing Tatum! This was revealed on one of Jax’s prior WWHL appearances,  but much to Stassi Schroeder‘s disappointment, nothing physical ever happened between the roomies.

2. During that same appearance on WWHL, Jax also revealed that he lost his virginity at 19. (Honestly, I’m surprised.)

3. Jax has had a warrant out for his arrest since he was 24. It was briefly mentioned in Jan. 2014 episode after Jax spent a weekend in jail.

4. Internet devotees have speculated, perhaps wishfully so, that Jax was once in a relationship with model/actor Vincent de Paul during his time in Miami. This would come as a pretty big surprise to me, though, as Vincent doesn’t meet either of Jax’s sexual requirements: He’s neither a woman, nor an employee at SUR.

5. Jax was in the Army! (What?) Watch our video interview for more on that.

OK, by now, you’ve probably figured out that I don’t know whether or not Jax really changed his name after moving from Miami. However, Tom’s persistence, coupled with Jax’s reaction to the question, has me convinced there’s more to the story than we know.

I was with Vincent De Paul at Sundance 2014 less than 2 weeks ago, and he is single and focused on his work as an actor/producer. We stayed at a friend’s house and the 3 of us attended press conferences, parties and premieres together. He is a complete gentleman.

My understanding from those in the know is that he likes pillow biting both pink and blue pillows.

Jax lived with Channing Tatum In New York, not LA. When they both started their modeling careers and there were lots of other roomates in the same flat, not just them two. Jax Tyalor ( his real name is Jason Taylor) cahnged his name upon coming to LA for modeling reasons, nothing else. He has never dated a man, although he strongly supports the gay community.

My money is on a serious drug problem which led to sex for drugs with men. I only think it was men because I feel like if it was women he’s the type of guy to brag about it.

Male escort, criminal past…. take your pick.

He admitted that his last visit to jail was not his first rodeo…. so I’m thinking criminal past.
