90 Day Fiance cast member Ashley Martson was found unresponsive in her home today and rushed to a local hospital. There’s no word from Jay Smith if he knows or has gone to see his wife. Photos from the ICU do not include him present. As most fans of 90 Day Fiance know, Ashley suffers from lupus and that may have led to today’s sad events.
90 Day Fiance Ashley Martson Unresponsive – Rushed to Hospital
According to a close friend of Ashley’s, an ambulance transported her to the hospital after she collapsed at home. She’s now in the ICU and is in kidney failure. But as of mid-day Sunday, the 90 Day Fiance star reportedly regained consciousness and is responsive.
Ashley Martson just got out of the hospital a few weeks ago. She spent both Thanksgiving and Christmas in the hospital as well because of her auto-immune disease. It is not clear what brought on today’s medical crisis but kidney complications are very common for people who suffer from lupus.
Ashley’s Kidney Failure
Reports indicate that Ashley Martson regained consciousness, which may ease 90 Day Fiance viewers’ minds. Still, this doesn’t mean she is out of the woods. A close friend of Ashley’s shared the news with Instagrammer John Yates earlier today about her medical emergency.
The last episode of 90 Day Fiance Season 6 is on TLC tonight, Sunday. Of course, this was taped months ago when Ashley Martson and her husband, Jay Smith, went through troubled times. Ashley looked healthy at the Tell All but this episode taped back in November before her first hospitalization.

I’m sorry if this photo offends anyone but I will not hide that I’m sick. If I can help one person with lupus then posting this is worth it. I was found unresponsive this morning at my home. The Ambulance took me to the hospital where it was found that I am in acute kidney failure due to lupus. I will begin dialysis shortly. I will not let this beat me. I know I’m strong enough to battle through this,not just for myself but for my kids. I will be transferred to another hospital this evening that is better equipped. Please pray for myself and my family as I know it’s going to be a very tough road ahead for all of us. Thank you for your continuous support and prayers #ashley #lupus #kidneyfailure #90dayfiance #tlc. **please keep negative comments off this post. I’m already scared and I don’t need to be kicked while I’m already down. Friends have started a go fund me to help Ashley during this unexpected medical issue. The link is in her story
Where Is Jay Smith?
According to reports, it appears Ashley Martson is still considering divorcing Jay Smith after the cheating revelations. She shared on the Tell All that she caught Jay chatting up women on Tinder and was devastated. Soap Dirt reported that Jay was in a U-Haul moving his things out the same day she was last released from the hospital.
Jay requested 90 Day Fiance fans “help me get on my feet and a place to stay” as he launched a GoFundMe in late December. The goal was $5,000. Reports indicate after hours of this crowdsourcing, it only gathered $5. It’s anyone’s guess if Jay Smith will be by her side as she deals with this crisis.
Marriage Status Uncertain – Ashley Martson Remains in ICU
While 90 Day Fiance fans say it looks like the two have stopped following one another on their Instagram accounts, their official relationship status is unknown. What is known today is that Jay Smith is nowhere in sight and Ashley Martson is in renal crisis in the ICU. Kidney failure can be life threatening.
And given that this is her third hospitalization since November, it looks like Ashley’s lupus might be causing ongoing issues. The disease can be fatal depending on the complications. The illness causes the body’s immune system to attack itself. So essentially, Ashley’s immune system is wrecking her kidneys. It’s a serious medical issue so let’s hope she’s getting the support she needs, even if Jay is not around!
Watch the final episode of 90 Day Fiance “Tell All” tonight on TLC.
