Ashley Martson and Jay Smith were one of the many not-so-compatible couples on 90 Day Fiancé, but their marital drama has heightened ever since their official split. Immediately after their nuptials, Ashley found out about several indiscretions with other women and a Tinder account where he was continuing to flirt and set up dates. Their ongoing feud has been broadcast all over social media, with a few surprising turns as of recent. Here’s what you need to know about the split, and where their love lives are going next:
Fans of the reality T.V. show 90 Day Fiancé were not surprised at all when Ashley Martson and Jay Smith split. Jay expressed very real concerns about committing to Ashley on their wedding day, and it wasn’t long before Ashley found his Tinder account where he had been flirting and meeting up with other women. Though Ashley was clearly shocked and hurt, she gave Jay another chance. They had only been married a few weeks, and she wasn’t ready to call it quits yet. That was until Jay admitted to going on more than a date with a woman he met at his barbershop. Jay confessed to having an intimate encounter with the woman at the barbershop, saying that “Everything you heard happened. I’m not going to deny it or anything like that.” Since the confession, Ashey has deleted all photos of them together on social media and has gone public about her desire for a divorce. While Ashley is currently not dating, her ex may have started seeing someone else while still married.
The Divorce Disputes
Ashley went on Instagram to answer fan questions about their split and pending divorce. When asked in an Instagram Q&A if they had officially divorced, she replied: “Nope, someone won’t sign.” Fans were surprised, and perhaps even hopeful until Ashley explained that Jay was “…requesting half of everything I own that’s why he won’t sign.” It looks like there is no hope of the couple getting back together, even though they are still legally married. Ashley is staunch in her position on the divorce. She also mentioned in the Instagram Q&A, “My attorney is a savage. You should see the cease and desist letters that just went out. I’m not worried about anyone taking anything. I may have made a bad decision but I’m not stupid.”
Jay May Have A New Baby On The Way
Just when the drama seemed to have reached a pinnacle, Ashley started spreading the rumor of a potential baby on the way. Soon after the couple filed for divorce, Jay was taken into custody by ICE after a Protection From Abuse (PFA) violation reported by Ashley. He was in holding for several weeks, while another woman helped create a GoFundMe to raise money for his release. Kayla O’Brien, the creator of the GoFundMe account, raised just shy of $5,000 to help Jay. After news of the incident, Ashley told viewers of The Domenick Nati Show that she suspected Kayla was not only a girlfriend but the mother of Jay’s child. Ashley stated, “There’s already a lot of rumors going around that his girlfriend, who’s running the GoFundMe, is pregnant. From what I saw — she was at court — she definitely looked like she could’ve been expecting. So, like, if I [sponsor his visa], I would be responsible for paying his child support.” The rumor of a baby certainly complicates their divorce as well as Jay’s immigration status. However, Kayla O’Brian has not confirmed the pregnancy or spoken out to the public on their relationship status. Fans will have to stay tuned to find out whether the couple finalizes their divorce, and what that means for Jay’s new family.
