‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Alum Christian Estrada Says He’s Not Dating ’90 Day Fiance’ Star Ashley Martson
90 Day Fiancé fans were holding out hope for Ashley Martson after she was spotted in Disney World with Bachelor in Paradise alum Christian Estrada. The reality star is still undergoing divorce from ex-husband Jay Smith following his infidelity and detention by ICE.
Meanwhile, Estrada was recently booted from Bachelor in Paradise after getting into an explosive fight with another cast member. Now, however, Estrada is dashing Martsons’ fans hopes — claiming that the two of them are not together after all.
Martson’s divorce from Jay Smith
Martson and Jay Smith were married in Las Vegas, but their marriage simply wasn’t destined for success. Only shortly after they were married, Martson discovered Jay Smith chatting up other women on Tinder.
Martson considered divorce afterwards, but decided to give her 90 Day Fiancé marriage another chance. The two continued their marriage, but Martson soon caught Jay Smith once more. Martson discovered Smith had sex with a woman he met at a cookout in the bathroom of the barbershop he worked in.
Martson has since filed for divorce. The process is still ongoing, with Marton claiming that Smith refuses to sign the divorce paperwork. Additionally, Smith was recently detained by ICE after he broke a Protection From Abuse order that Martson had levied against him.
Since then, Martson has stressed how much of a toll her marriage to Jay Smith has taken on her emotionally. She’s claimed she feels “dead inside” amid all the proceedings and ongoing drama.
Christian Estrada’s fight on ‘Bachelor in Paradise’
Christian Estrada and Jordan Kimball were both kicked off of Bachelor in Paradise following an unexpected and explosive fight between the two. Estrada was interested in pursuing Nicole Lopez-Alvar — however so was Clay, a friend of Jordan Kimball’s.
Kimball tried to disrupt Estrada’s time with Lopez-Alvar by ripping down a piñata he’d set up for his date with Nicole. Estrada reacted and the two got into a scuffle — Kimball body slammed Estrada to the ground. Producers arrived soon after and prevented Estrada from charging at Kimball.
Castmate Katie Morton said, “There’s no way all of us are gonna feel safe with them around. The two of them need to leave. They’re out of control.”
Regardless, for a moment fans thought Christian Estrada might have found love again with Ashley Martson. However, according to Estrada, those fans are wrong.
It seemed as if the two were dating
On August 17, Christian Estrada and Ashley Martson were spotted together in Disney World, enjoying a date in the most magical place on Earth. According to People, a source confirmed that it was, definitely, a date. On August 2, Martson shared a picture of Estrada to Instagram along with the caption “blinded from the start” and some heart eyes emojis.
However, according to Estrada, the two are not actually dating. During a recent interview on the Domenick Nati Show, Estrada came clean, “No, I know Natalie, I know Ashley’s PR. I’m good friends with her PR, but I mean the few times Ashley and I are hanging out it’s not just the two of us, it’s a few friends of ours. But I respect the girl, she’s an awesome girl, but it’s like I said you know, at this point I’m just focusing on my projects and my father’s company.”
Sounds like fans might have gotten their hopes up a little too high for the 90 Day Fiancé star.
