90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Jay Smith is not out of prison despite a recent “live” video. The former husband of Ashley Martson made a brief live appearance on his Instagram page, causing more confusion from fans. The Jamaica native has been in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) custody for the last couple of weeks after his arrest. Jay was arrested for violating a Protection From Abuse (PFA) order issued for Ashley Martson. But was this a “Live” video or an older video posted by the person managing his social media? Seems so but things are shifting again.
90 Day Fiance: Jay Smith Goes Live On IG – But Not Out Of Jail
Looks like Jay Smith is not out of custody despite a recent Instagram “Live” video posted on his account.
The 90 Day Fiance celebrity made an unexpected comeback on social media. Ashley’s ex shocked his followers when he went “live” on Instagram.
Many fans think the video is an older video and are claiming fraud. Jay Smith and his wife Ashley were caught last year making fake social media accounts to stir up drama and drive click bait traffic. Is this more of the same?
Some 90 Day Fiance followers think Jay’s friend that is in charge of his Instagram account might be trying to drive traffic to his GoFundMe page to get even more money from the public.
His video was immediately taken down, but not before screen captures (shown below) were made.
In the video, Jay appeared and his hair looked noticeably different compared to when he had his mugshot taken. Although no details have been officially announced, his live video teased he’s out of detainment while some fans are claiming he’s still locked up. In fact, he’s still behind bars.
Jay Back In The Tattoo Shop?
From the video posted, it looks like Jay Smith returned to his gig as a tattoo artist – if this was a new video. But it was an older one just posted perhaps to confuse fans. The 90 Day Fiance alum appeared to be in a tattoo shop while filming the video. By the looks of it, he’s back to work. Yet it’s not true…
In the video, Jay is seen helping a female customer who wants a retouch of her tattoo. The woman complains about a bad tattoo she got from one of his co-workers at the tattoo shop. Jay Smith had to interrupt his live video to fully assist the customer, promising his viewers that he’ll be back shortly. Unfortunately, he has yet to share any updates.
90 Day Fiance Fans Think Jay Is Being Cocky
Jay Smith’s surprising Instagram live video drew various responses from his fans and haters alike. Less than 300 viewers watched the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After cast member and some of them pointed out a noticeable change in his attitude.
Apparently, some claimed that Jay was not his usual down to earth self. They pointed out that Ashley Martson’s ex appeared cocky about his “release” from jail. Others claimed that he sounded bitter and was even rude to his 90 Day Fiance fans at times.
Did Jay Get Help From Immigration Lawyer?
With Jay Smith’s alleged release from ICE custody, many are wondering if he was able to get help from an immigration attorney. Previously, Kayla O’Brien started a GoFundMe campaign on behalf of the 90 Day Fiance star. The GoFundMe’s states its purpose is to get his release from immigration detention. However, if he has been released and the GFM is still collecting money for the purpose of his release, then that’s misleading.
The video of Jay’s release was taken down, and some fans are wondering if it’s to hide his release so his Go-Fund-Me can still keep collecting money. Update: Jay’s not out and the video was old…
90 Day Fiance: What’s Next For Jay?
Now, it seems Jay Smith could be out of custody soon, though. If he makes bail this week. Many are wondering what his next move will be. The 90 Day Fiance celeb has been very open about his desire to stay in America despite his split from Ashley Martson.
Despite his not being release, Jay has a hearing to discuss his PFA violation rescheduled on July 16. So far, both Jay and Ashley have yet to make any update about the matter.
