90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Jay Smith (Ashley Martson‘s ex) was arrested and could be facing deportation soon. The Jamaica native reportedly violated a protective order filed by Ashley Martson. Authorities arrested Jay Smith shortly after getting in touch with his ex-wife. Interestingly, Ashley made an obvious change of tone about the matter. The once-feisty ex-wife suddenly became worried sick about Jay, claiming his situation brought her nothing but “pure heartbreak”.
90 Day Fiance: Jay Smith Breaks PFA – Contacts Ashley Martson Despite Order
Looks like Jay Smith’s time in America is running out fast because of his arrest. The 90 Day Fiance is on the verge of being kicked out of the country. He broke a ‘Protection From Abuse’ order from his ex-wife Ashley Martson. It seems the Jamaican tattoo artist contacted his former spouse despite the order being in place.
Ashley allegedly filed for PFA against her 90 Day Fiance husband, Jay Smith, on Monday. However, many find it strange, since Ashley Martson is the one charged with a simple assault and criminal mischief. Ashley is facing legal charges after throwing a fire extinguisher through Jay’s window.
Jay’s Deportation Happening Soon?
Now, Jay Smith is likely to face deportation sooner than expected since he’s been arrested. The 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After celeb might not be able to set foot in the U.S. for good. This is something he admits has worried him in the past.
Ashley has claimed that Jay’s deportation is in August. In an Instagram post, she wrote, “He [Jay Smith] will be deported on August 7th unless he runs.”
With Jay’s new violation, it may happen earlier than what Ashley revealed. The 90 Day Fiance alum, Jay Smith, doesn’t seem too concerned about it anymore, because in a now-deleted post, he reiterated that he gives “zero f***s about PFA,” adding that the “truth” is still going to come out anyway.
90 Day Fiance: Ashley Claims Jay’s Arrest Is The ‘Hardest Day’ Of Her Life
In a surprising turn of events, Ashley Martson said Jay Smith’s arrest is the “hardest day of [her] life”. The 90 Day Fiance star claimed she “can’t believe this is how it ended”. She also maintained that the amount of sadness she’s feeling is “unfathomable”.
Ashley’s statement came as a surprise to many 90 Day Fiance fans, especially since she’s so eager to have Jay out of the country for good. Previously, Ashley said she had enough of Jay’s cheating and that she’s doing everything she can to deport him. She even kicked her out of their house and declared that their relationship’s over.
What Is A Protection From Abuse?
So what really is a Protection From Abuse? PFA is a “civil procedure” for someone who suffers from “domestic violence from an intimate partner, household member, or family member”. The “abuse” could either be a physical injury or threat of physical injury. Once granted, the court will order for “no contact between the victim and the defendant for a period of time up to 36 months”.
Did Jay Smith actually physically hurt or threaten to hurt Ashley Martson? Is deportation imminent?
UPDATE: Jay was released and taken into ICE Custody.
