Ashley Martson and Jay Smith are no longer dating.
In and of itself, this is not a shocking statement. The 90 Day Fiance stars are nearly as unstable as fellow reality TV personalities Jen Harley and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
But the circumstances behind their latest split may come as a shock to even those who have followed the couple very closely over the past several months.
Scroll down for all the sordid details…
What’s the Deal with These Two?
Martson and Smith met on a 90 Day Fiance, with the latter hailing from Jamaica and needing to marry a U.S. citizen in order to live here permanently. They wed in 2018, as seen on 90 Day Fiance Season 6.
What Went Wrong After That?
Uhhh… everything? For starters, Smith was caught using a dating app days after their wedding. He was chatting with other women on Tinder.
Was It Over After That?
Not exactly. The stars broke up and then reconciled and then Ashley filed for divorce in January 2019 and then took it back and then filed a second time in April 2019.
For What Reason?
Because Smith was caught with a woman in a barbershop bathroom. This was merely the latest example of him cheating on his wife. Jay was then taken into ICE custody after he violated a protective order Martson had against him.
So It Was Definitely Over Then, Right?
It sure sounded that way. “Honestly, I don’t really care if he’s deported,” Ashley told In Touch Weekly just this past August.
What the Heck Happened from There?
It’s sort of unclear — but there were concerns in September that they got back together again after the two attended the same event in Pennsylvania. Ashley later confirmed that she was, indeed, willing to give Jay yet another romantic shot.
