Ashley Martson Reveals the Truth About Whether ’90 Day Fiance’ Is Real or Fake

Ashley Martson of 90 Day Fiance is speaking out about her experience on the TLC reality show, and what she has to say may shock fans.

Martson and her fiancé Jay Smith appeared on Season 6 of 90 Day Fiance. Though the couple married on the show, by the last episode they were in a rocky place, with Martson having accused her husband of infidelity. Shortly after the season ended, the 32-year-old filed for divorce from her Jamaican beau. But a couple weeks later, she withdrew the divorce filing and was spotted stepping out with 20-year-old Smith, leaving many people confused as to what exactly was going on with the couple.

Martson addresses the controversy on Instagram

Fans and fellow 90 Day Fiance cast members have accused Martson and Smith of faking their relationship, and have also suggested that Martson might be lying about having lupus, for which she says she was hospitalized in January.

But Martson is standing up to claims that she’s a liar. In an Instagram post, she showed followers her medical records in an effort to prove her lupus diagnosis was real. She followed that with a lengthy Instagram rant where she addressed the allegations that she was faking being sick. She also attempted to explain why Smith had started a fake Instagram account, claiming it was part of an attempt to distract from an account created by her former friend who was leaking information about the couple. Martson added that she and Smith had never really broken up.

In addition, Martson called out other 90 Day Fiance couples for their hypocrisy, saying they had no place to criticize her when they know the show is edited to create drama.

“As for fellow cast members popping off: YOU WORK FOR THE SAME SHOW, so — acting like you’re mortified about the falsity of things that happen is COMPLETELY hypocritical. Most of you from Season 6 went on a social media TIRADE about the editing and fraud of the show, so don’t suddenly act like you have no idea how this goes,” she wrote in a series of Instagram posts shared by the Hollywood Gossip.

While fans have been lashing out at Martson and Smith for being dishonest, she says that they only reason the couple lied about their relationship status was because producers asked them to do so.

“We have been asked to be very deceptive about many things during our run with the show,” Martson claimed. “We have been asked (and agreed for some time) to fake our relationship by not posting anything that makes us appear that we are together.”

“Personally, I thought this show was just for entertainment & that’s what we were told. Since the show has ended I never confirmed the status of our relationship due to the contract.” she added. She claimed that she was breaking her non-disclosure agreement with her posts and that as a result she would not be paid for future shows.

Martson ended by saying that doing the show wasn’t worth it. After claiming that “the fraud comes from the top down” she said that 90 Day Fiance “ruins relationships and people’s overall image for less than the Pennsylvania minimum wage.” (Reportedly, the American half of each couple earns about $1,000 per episode, while the non-U.S. partner earns nothing.)

TLC has not commented on Martson’s allegations. Previously, Martson had said that she and Smith were scheduled to appear in two more series for TLC. It’s not clear whether her latest Instagram post will affect those plans.
