If you watch these Bravo shows, you know that they get sent lots of free merch hoping they will wear it on the show. It seems that Jax had a contract with a shoe company where he would make a cut of the profits for wearing their kicks on the show. Frankly, I don’t think I’ve ever noticed his shoes. But that is not the point.
The company that Jax was under contract with him never paid him for his promotion of their product on the shows. He claims he is owed at least $25K. Honestly, when you figure in the cost of litigation, that is not worth most people’s time. That said, the VPR kids do seem to live in hovels and work as servers in a restaurant so, if he wins and gets attorneys fees in the settlement maybe it is worth his time.
According to legal docs … the “Vanderpump Rules” star reached an agreement with XCALIBUR SHOES in 2014. The agreement says in exchange for endorsing the shoes, Jax would receive $20 for each pair sold in his collection. He would also be given 10% of the total net sales he generated.
However, according to Jax, XCAL has gone sour on their end of the deal — failing to pay him at least $25,000. He also says the bum deal has made it hard for him to find similar work … since XCAL’s competitors won’t want to work with him now.[SOURCE]
Maybe the fact that he is constantly being arrested on the show is part of his image problem? Nah, it seems in this day and age everyone loves to reward criminal behavior.
Do you have any idea what XCALIBUR shoes even look like?
