90 Day Fiance‘s Ashley Martson and Jay Smith seem to be heading to divorce court. They are one of the most controversial couples from the latest season of the TLC show. They’ve split up before but Ashley says it was scripted drama. Ashley filed to divorce Jay in January but quickly withdrew the complaint less than two weeks later. Now, it looks like Ashley Martson re-filed and is severing ties with Jay Smith for good. What’s the latest?
90 Day Fiance News: Ashley Martson Files for Divorce – Lists Adultery in Petition
There’s a lot of distrust among 90 Day Fiance viewers when it comes to social media from these two. After Jay Smith was caught live streaming from a fake “leak” account, fans were on high alert. Ashley Martson acknowledged the misstep and orchestrated drama. But now, she may have had enough of her Jamaican hubby.
90 Day Fiance Ashley Martson filed an initial divorce complaint on January 11, 2019 and withdrew it on January 22. The latest document shows that Ashley re-filed divorce on April 23, 2019. Official court documents list adultery as the primary reason. 90 Day Fiance fans know that Jay Smith always bragged about his prowess with the ladies. Ashley Martson called out the tattoo artist numerous times on the show for talking to other women on hook-up app Tinder.
There’s even some talk on social media that another woman is pregnant with Jay Smith’s child. Plus, in some Instagram exchanges, Ashley Martson and her husband’s sister seem to confirm this. You can see the divorce doc below showing that Ashley accused Jay of cheating in the court papers filed this week.
90 Day Fiance: Will Jay Smith be Deported?
This comes on the heels of Ashley Martson threatening to have Jay Smith deported. She shared on her Insta story comments that he was driving her car unlicensed to go see other women. Then, 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson posted a curt “bye Felicia” and said he’d be deported.
Of course, it’s not up to her – it’s a government matter. However, in a recent live chat with John Yates, Ashley leaked documents that look official. These papers say that 90 Day Fiance Jay Smith overstayed his United States visa. This suggests that Ashley Martson may not have started the process to allow Jay to remain in America.
After you receive the K1 visa and get married, the next step in the process is to apply for an adjustment of status to switch the K1 visa to a green card. Without that step, an immigrant spouse will be deported eventually. Perhaps Ashley Martson didn’t complete those steps because she planned on divorcing husband Jay.
Ashley Martson Again Files Divorce – Jay Smith Faces Deportation
His wife accused the 90 Day Fiance tattoo artist of adultery in the divorce. And he’s got more pressing concerns. Jay Smith has two court days in his future. One is for the split which Ashley Martson did file this week. The other is in federal immigration court in Philadelphia next month.
So, Jay Smith has a court date on May 8 before an immigration judge to address him overstaying his visa. To make things worse, a deportation officer served the Jamaican tattoo artist with a warrant for his arrest in person. Officials served the warrant alleging “probable cause” to remove him from the country on February 4, 2019.
It seems some 90 Day Fiance viewers think this divorce filing might be more fakery from the TLC couple. However, Ashley filed the court documents so the case is official. And the deportation hearing is the real deal as well. It remains to be seen if Ashley Martson follows through this time on the divorce and whether ICE sends Jay Smith back to Jamaica.
All of this is playing out in real-time leading up to the premiere of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After. But it’s not looking like a happy ending is on the table for this controversial couple.
