Ashley Martson of 90 Day Fiancé fame is still dealing with the fallout of her relationship with Jay Smith. The now-divorced couple have had more than their fair share of ups and downs. Smith, who has been accused of infidelity multiple times while together with Martson, is now being detained by ICE following the couple’s divorce. As Jay Smith faces possible deportation, Martson has been dealing with the mental health repercussions of her failed relationship, even taking a wellness retreat to help combat depression.
While it’s unclear if Jay Smith has moved on to another relationship since the divorce, there are some hints that Martson could be back in the dating game.
A marriage spoiled by infidelity
When the 90 Day Fiancé couple tied the knot in Las Vegas, chances are Ashley Martson expected a fun, loving honeymoon. Unfortunately for her, it wasn’t meant to be that way. Martson discovered Jay Smith talking to other women on Tinder shortly after their wedding.
Eight months later, Martson had filed for divorce. Something changed her mind, and eleven days after her first filing she rescinded the paperwork. Jay Smith was later caught amid another cheating scandal, however. Martson discovered Smith had been unfaithful to her, having sex with a customer in a barbershop bathroom.
In a recent episode, Martson received a phone call from the other woman involved in her marriage. The woman explained to Martson, “I had come into the barbershop and getting ready to start the tattoo, and he kinda was like touching me, kind of caressing me and then one thing kind of just lead to another. We went into the bathroom and had sex,” explained the woman.
Jay Smith faces deportation
Now, the 90 Day Fiancé couple is divorced, and Jay Smith is facing possible deportation. Smith is currently being detained by ICE at the York County Jail in Pennsylvania. Jay Smith turned himself in to the authorities after learning that there was a warrant out for his arrest.
Smith was slapped with a Protection From Abuse order after breaking into Martson property while she was on vacation. This PFA meant that he couldn’t post about her or their situation on social media — he proceeded to post about the PFA on his Instagram story, immediately violating the order. Now, Smith and Martson are waiting for an opportunity for their next PFA hearing on July 17.
“This is a very sad situation overall…I’m not popping champagne bottles celebrating today. It’s hard to sit here and think about how he’s sitting in a jail cell right now, but I also have to remember everything he put me through the past year,” said Martson to CeleBuzz.
Is Ashley Martson dating?
With her ex-husband in jail and the stress of their divorce past her to some extent, fans are now wondering if Ashley Martson is dating again. The 90 Day Fiancé star did drop a hint that she may be seeing someone in April.
Martson told Us Weekly, “I’m really happy right now. It’s nothing serious. [I] have found someone.” She went on to explain that she met the man at an event, adding, “I’m in a much better place right now and surrounding myself with someone who’s honest and treats me well.”
While it’s not immediately clear if Ashley Martson is still with the same person now, it could very well be that the 90 Day Fiancé star has moved on since her divorce, and is now looking for love again.
