Okurrr! Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor is definitely one of the millions of viewers who are obsessed with TLC’s hit reality TV series 90 Day Fiancé, and the Bravolebrity is also not shy about sharing his opinion about the couples on the show. Recently, Jax threw major shade at 20-year-old Jamaica native Jay Smith’s relationship with Ashley Martson, a 31-year-old single mom from Pennsylvania — and in a statement exclusively provided to In Touch, Jay clapped all the way back at Jax and threw some shade of his own.

“Honestly I don’t even know the guy. Never heard of the TV show that he is on,” Jay, exclusively told In Touch. “He just wants attention and 90 Day Fiancé is one of the highest rated TV shows there is at the moment, so maybe he is just trying to start beef so that he can stay relevant.”

It all started when Jax took to the comments of a 90 Day Fiancé fan Instagram account post about Jay’s visa getting approved and he let it be known that he did not approve of Jay’s relationship with Ashley. “Douche bag!!! Both of these two are idiots. You have a kid for God’s sake,” Jax wrote.

Jay got wind of Jax’s shade and he took to his Instagram page to respond in a video message to Jax, and he got some back up from his fellow 90 Day Fiancé franchise star Jesse Meester! “Jax is one of those desperate mofo’s [sic] who clout chase like that. This is literally all he does and people bite into it. And that’s what he wants… I blocked his desperate a– on the bias when he tried me a year ago and would love to meet people like him face to face one day,” Jesse, 25, wrote in the comments. “[Jay], wishing you and your fiancée all the best and love.”
