Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy has gotten so out of control that his co-stars are demanding that he be fired from the show. In addition to bringing the drama to the small screen, Kennedy has also been running his mouth on social media. And, a new report claims that his castmates believe he is intentionally picking fights so he can stay on VPR.
When the troubled DJ attacked Katie Maloney, Jax Taylor, and Lala Kent on Twitter earlier this week, an insider revealed that Kennedy has resorted to desperate measures.

“James is starting all these fights because he is just super desperate to stay on the show,” an on-set source revealed. “He knows that the more drama he causes while the show is airing this season, the less chance that Lisa will get rid of him.”
The insider added that Vanderpump Rules needs drama, and Lisa Vanderpump needs ratings. But, it is sad that things have gotten to the point where people are concerned about Kennedy’s well-being and mental health.
Radar Online reported that Lisa Vanderpump fired Kennedy from SUR during an emotional scene that aired on VPR late last month, but he has been spotted working in the restaurant after they shot that episode. So, it looks like Vanderpump re-hired him.
This was the second time that Kennedy lost his job at SUR. In 2015, Vanderpump fired him after she got fed up with Kennedy’s partying, and demanded that he get clean if he wanted to get his job back.
It doesn’t look like Kennedy ever cleaned up his act, and his drinking and partying is more out of control than ever before. His behavior has been so bad that many of his VPR castmates don’t want to film with him. And earlier this week, Kennedy slammed three of his co-stars on Twitter before deleting the posts and apologizing.
“Katie Maloney is one disgusting human. Basically making up stories about me to gain, gain, gain! Her marriage won’t last and neither will she after Pump Rules,” wrote Kennedy.
That kid wasn't hacked, please. He was probably drunk tweeting then realized exactly what he'd said and deleted them. Never, NEVER go for the parents, ESPECIALLY when they're passed on. Low class is as low class does. James needs to check himself into rehab, immediately.

In a second post, the DJ wrote, “And Jax? He is just a sad man after his daddy died. I’m the only brother that you don’t like. Make peace with your dead father please so you can be set free. That goes for La La also.”
After the posts, James Kennedy claimed he was “hacked” before issuing an apology.
New episodes of Vanderpump Rules air Monday nights on Bravo.
