’90 Day Fiancé’: Ashley Martson Claims Jay Smith Refuses to Sign Divorce Papers

Ashley Martson of 90 Day Fiancé fame is getting ready to end her time on the show — her last episode will be airing soon, and after that, she’s calling it quits. Meanwhile, her ex-husband Jay Smith is locked up in York County Prison, Pennsylvania, awaiting a final decision on his possible deportation. However, it seems as if Smith isn’t willing to go quietly. According to a Q&A on Instagram, he’s refusing to sign divorce papers — and he wants plenty more on his way out. 

Why did they get divorced?

The 90 Day Fiancé couple has always had a tumultuous relationship. Jay Smith and Ashley Martson were married in Las Vegas, but it was a matter of days before things got messy. Shortly after their marriage, Ashley Martson caught Jay Smith chatting up other women on Tinder. 

Martson began the divorce process, but a change of heart caused her to rescind the divorce paperwork, and the two remained married for a little while longer. Martson eventually caught Smith at it again — this time, he had sex with another woman in the bathroom of a barbershop. 

Martson was furious, and posted to Instagram, writing, “It’s all fun as games until your ass gets deported. Have fun at the strip club with MY money and MY car you’re driving around without a license!”

Now, Jay Smith’s sister is claiming the entire infidelity scandal in the barbershop was a set-up orchestrated by Martson. She wrote on Instagram, “[Ashley] called me right after telling me that the show set it up. And Jay was so f****** horny and stupid and fell right in the trap!” 

Jay Smith is being detained by ICE

Now, Jay Smith is being held by ICE in the York County Jail in Pennsylvania, pending their decision on what his future status in the U.S. will be. Martson had previously expressed certainty that Smith would be deported. 

In a Q&A with Instagrammer John Yates, she said,“He will be deported on August 7 unless he runs, which is what I’m assuming he’s probably [planning].”

Smith turned himself in to the authorities when he learned there was a warrant out for his arrest. 

Martson says goodbye to the show

Now that everything has come to its head and seems to be approaching a dramatic conclusion in life outside the screen, Martson has made it clear that she’s finished with 90 Day Fiancé. She posted to Instagram to say goodbye to the show, writing, in part, “I was given the chance to let the world take a sneak peak into my life and even though it didn’t end how any one wanted or anticipated, it’s not something I regret or would take back! 

Ashley Martson says Jay Smith won’t sign

During an Instagram Q&A on July 20, a fan asked the 90 Day Fiancé star, “Are you even divorced?” Martson replied, “Nope! Someone won’t sign.” 

Martson went on to reveal that Smith is “requesting half of everything I own that’s why he won’t sign.”

Martson later said that she’d learned a lot from her experience with Smith, especially when it comes to having your own back. “A little advice from me is to save EVERYTHING!! Receipts don’t lie. I saved it all from Day 1 and thank god I did. If your significant other goes through your phone email the stuff to an email they don’t know about. Be smart!” said Martson.
