Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute is setting the record straight when it comes to what she paid for when it comes to her ‘ex’ boyfriend Brian Carter. After Lala Kent and Jax Taylor called the photographer out for using their friend as a sugar mama, she defended him on Watch What Happens Live.
On the premiere episode aired last Tuesday, Lala spoke to Carter and let him know that she didn’t like what he was doing. After Brian explained that Kristen asks him to be there for her in more than one way — Lala realized she wasn’t getting the whole truth.
During this week’s episode, Jax had his own talk with the rumored leech and uninvited him from one of the wedding festivities. He revealed in confessional that Kristen is Carter’s ‘sugar mama’ who keeps coming around because he sees that she’s vulnerable.
Carter has explained to nearly all of Doute’s friends that he’s around because she wants him to be. He also listed some of the things he does to help her such as photoshoots, housework, and emotional support.
While chatting with Andy Cohen, she was asked if she was financially supporting her ex.
Kristen responded: ‘Was. I was helping him out a lot when we were together. We are definitely not together. Single ready to mingle.’
Regardless of where their relationship leaves off on the show, she will remain friends with Carter for the rest of her life.
She recently told US Weekly: ‘We’re trying to be friends. He’s always going to be one of my best friends in my mind. I love him, I care about him, we have dogs together. But we tried to make it work and it’s not working, so it needs to be done.’
Later in the interview, she also revealed that she believes Stassi Schroeder stopped being her friend because she’s single.
