’90 Day Fiancé’ Stars Ashley Martson and Jay Smith Are Finally Divorced
90 Day Fiancé couple Ashley Martson and Jay Smith seem to be a nonstop drama rollercoaster. The couple married in Las Vegas on the TLC hit show, but things took a turn very quickly when Martson discovered Smith was chatting up women on Tinder.
Another spate of infidelity later, and it Martson decided to divorce Smith. Smith was arrested by ICE after violating a protective order lodged against him by Martson, and divorce proceedings continued. That is, until the two got together again this summer. Now, according to Martson, the two are finally officially divorced. Here’s what we know.
Jay Smith cheated on Ashley Martson at work
When Ashley Martson discovered that Jay Smith had been messaging women on Tinder following their 90 Day Fiancé marriage, she was planning on divorce. However, eleven days after beginning the process, she decided to give Jay Smith a second chance. For a while, it seemed as if the couple had been able to work things out.
Unfortunately, things didn’t last that much longer. It wasn’t long until Ashley Martson found out that Jay Smith had cheated on her at his workplace. After finding out about the infidelity, Martson wrote on Instagram, “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!”
In an uncomfortable phone call with the woman Jay Smith cheated on Martson with, Martson discovered that Smith never told the woman he was married. “I had no idea that you and him were together. Obviously, if I had known, I wouldn’t have done what went down. So I just wanted to let you know the truth,” the woman told 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,” she continued. Martson made it clear that she was angry at Smith, not the woman involved.
Ashley Martson claims Smith cheated on her this summer as well
Somehow, despite their less-than-stellar history together, Smith suckered Martson back in for another attempt at their relationship this summer. The 90 Day Fiancé couple fell apart again, however. And according to Martson, Smith cheated again.
Martson discussed her choice to get back together with Smith in an interview with InTouch Weekly. Martson said, “I’m a big believer in following your heart and it is true that I took Jay back once again. I know people will judge me and, while I can accept that, it was ultimately my decision.”
The 90 Day Fiancé star added, “However, what my friend is saying turned out to be true and Jay confirmed it himself on the phone that he did indeed have another girl who is claiming he got her pregnant.”
“He said he doesn’t believe her but they are going to get a test done and regardless it’s clear he cheated on me. I am distraught yet again and am picking up the pieces and doing my best to move on. I know that I only have myself to blame for the situation I’m in again. It’s no one’s fault but my own. I can safely say I am, once and for all, done with Jay,” concluded Martson.
