(NEW YORK) -- Jaws dropped around the world when Vanderpump Rules' star Jax admitted impregnating a woman he had a fling with while partying in Vegas, breaking the heart of his on-again, off-again girlfriend Stassi, all while Bravo cameras rolled.
But, Jax, whose legal name is Jason Taylor, admitted to ABC News Radio that the woman actually tricked him into believing she was pregnant for money.
When asked if he had spoken to the woman since the episode aired, the model/bartender at Sur said, "I got a response after we were done filming from her roommate saying, 'Listen, I know you. You're a good guy. I think you should know she was never pregnant. She needed money for her rent.'"
Jax said he did try to reach out to the trickster to ask her why she would lie, adding, "to say something like that is a bit extreme," but he never reached her.
Perhaps this is pay back for Jax lying for months to his now ex-girlfriend Stassi, another server at Sur, in an attempt to cover up the ordeal.
Vanderpump Rules centers around Dancing with the Stars' competitor Lisa Vanderpump and her Beverly Hills' restaurant Sur. The series reunion airs Monday night on Bravo TV while "The Lost Footage" episode is set to air on Monday, March 11.
