90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After stars Jay Smith and Ashley Martson made the headlines this week after a dramatic legal battle. Jay was arrested after violating a Protection From Abuse (PFA) order.
It started when Jay Smith went on a social media rant, threatening to spill the “truth” about Ashley implying that she was also cheating on him. Ashley Martson then claimed that Jay “broke in” to her house while she’s away on a vacation. She received a Protection from Abuse order which barred Jay from making comments on social media about her.
Jay responded on social media, which violated the PFA. He said that he gave “zero f***s about [the] PFA,” and said the “truth” is still going to come out. Since the Jamaican tattoo artist violated the legal order, he was arrested.
Jay Smith was in the United States on a K-1. His visa allowed him to enter the States as long as he married his fiance within 90 Days and stayed married. Ashley also had to file papers that would allow him to stay. Since Jay cheated on Ashley, she decided not to file the papers allowing him to stay.
When Jay Smith was arrested, his visa was expired, and he is in now custody of ICE awaiting deportation back to Jamaica.
90 Day Fiance Fans Have Opposing Views On Jay Smith & Ashley Martson
The drama between Ashley Martson and Jay Smith drew mixed reactions from fans online. Those who have been following the couple’s journey are now divided on whose side to believe.
Ever since the beginning of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After season 4, Jay and Ashley’s marriage had taken a beating and quickly went downhill. With almost everything documented and shown on TV, it’s inevitable for viewers to pick sides. However, seeing them now in this situation raised so many questions. Is Ashley actually heartbroken about he ex’s fate as she claims or is he the real victim? Or is their drama getting old already?
Ashley Martson’s Ever-Changing Mind About Her Ex
After finding out about Jay Smith’s infidelity, Ashley Martson made it very clear that she’s done with him for good. The 90 Day Fiance celeb immediately kicked him out the house and filed for divorce. She called him names and threatened to have him deported.
Not saying what Jay did is excusable but Ashley playing the “deport his ass” card is actually so fucked up. Holding someone’s immigrantion status over their head is messed up. That’s mental abuse. Should have ended it when she found out about tinder. #90DayFianceHappilyEverAfter

Most fans understand Ashley’s actions given the circumstances, but some think she went too far. Now that he’s facing deportation, and Ashley is claiming she is heartbroken.
90 Day Fiance: Ashley Out Partying Despite Claims She Feels Sad
Ashley Martson claimed that Jay Smith’s arrest brought her nothing but sadness, which she described as “unfathomable”. The 90 Day Fiance star also maintained that her ex-husband’s fate just gave her “pure heartbreak”. She reiterated that she isn’t “popping champagne bottles” and celebrating.
However, her recent Instagram posts tell a different story. Despite her claims that she feels sad about Jay’s imminent deportation, Ashley shared photos and videos of herself partying on the fourth of July. She even treated herself with a new hairstyle. So much for feeling sad.
Jay Smith Plays The Victim?
While some think that Jay Smith deserves his “karma” for cheating, others believe he’s the victim.
Many believe that the 90 Day Fiance celeb has to face the consequences of his actions. After all, he cheated of his own will, not once but multiple times.
I dont get how everyone is bashing Ashley for her actions yet not saying anything about Jay’s shady ass. She literally invested her heart and money. I wanna see people carry this same energy when you get played ? the I would-never people really talking tonight #90DayFiance

Others felt like Jay Smith has been quite cocky lately, flaunting expensive stuff and even mocking his haters online. It’s as if he’s so sure that Ashley will never leave him and that he’ll get to stay in the U.S. for good.
Of course, who would forget about his and Ashley’s lies for the sake of publicity? Previously, the couple admitted that the show made them lie about their split to add more spice to their storyline. Looks like their lies have become a reality and this time, they can’t take it back.
