Former “90 Day Fiance” Star Ashley Martson Says She Lied Out of Embarrassment About Her Split From Husband Jay Smith; Claims Jay Took Her Money & Possibly Cheated Again

“Who could have seen this coming?”
“Um…basically everyone, Ash.”

Former 90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson is “coming clean” about what recently ended her on- and off-again relationship with her husband Jay Smith. The Season 6 star took to TikTok over the weekend to confess to her fans that she lied to them about the reasons for her most-recent split from Jay.

Ashley announced last month that she and Jay were “done for good,” and said her inability to move past Jay’s cheating early in their relationship played heavily in the decision to call it quits. 

However, this weekend Ashley detailed what really went down between the two and said she was too “embarrassed” to share the truth before.

“I lied to the world because I was ashamed and embarrassed to let this happen AGAIN,” she said.

In the now-deleted TikTok video, Ashley says she gave Jay $30,000 to open his own tattoo shop…but once he got the business going, her relationship with Jay blew up.

“What did he do…he was messaging the stripper he originally cheated on me (with) again,” Ashley said.

As “90 Day Fiance” fans know, the couple has long been plagued with infidelity rumors and ongoing drama, even before they married in May 2018.

A few days after the alleged cheating episode, Ashley told Jay to get his stuff and leave their house.

“It’s all my dumb fault,” Ashley said. “I’m sorry I lied to you all. In that moment, I was so weak, I couldn’t take public opinions and deal with the trolls.

“I gave it my everything. I loved him so much,” she added.

During one of her and Jay’s (many) previous separations, Ashley stated that she really loved Jay but, “maybe he really did just want a green card”.

It’s unclear at this point if Jay could face deportation again. He was previously detained by ICE and faced deportation in April 2019 after Ashley filed for divorce. The divorce process was canceled and the couple reconciled.

Jay is still living in Pennsylvania and running his tattoo shop. He recently posted an example of his tattoo work on Instagram, only to be met with plenty of criticism about using Ashley’s money to start the shop and then allegedly betraying her.

“I truly hope you’re working hard to pay back the woman who paid your way to success,” one person wrote in the post’s comment section.

“You are truly growing as an artist. Great work. However, I have no respect for people who have no loyalty to or use those they claim to love. Sad. I hope someday you grow to truly love a woman right,” another wrote.

“You didn’t do any of this on your own,” another critic commented. “Hopefully you pay back every penny an actual WOMAN helped you with. What a shame.”

Jay has yet to publicly respond to Ashley’s claims.

  1. Ashley does all this for attention. Where would she get that kind of money? Would jay really let her sleep with another man for money? That’s called a “HO” Ashley. You have kids. Where are your morals?

  2. She’s been “done for good” like, 20 times. And then wants sympathy for what “she’s gone through”. You put yourself there Ashley. After the first time, you just keep showing us you are stupid and will take him back over and over and over again. This won’t be the last time

  3. Did anyone else not recognize Ashley without makeup on? Also, Jay is an opportunist. If Ashley didn’t say (or has proof of) Jay saying he would pay her back the $30k, thats on her. He is only 22 years old, no doubt he will find another girl yo get married to in order to keep his citizenship (he didn’t like ICE).

    1. Unless the show lies and they don’t come in on a fiancé visa then he is outta luck even if he finds another (sucker) soulmate. Fiancé visa requires you to file for adjustment of status (green card) with the original petitioner of the fiancé visa.

  4. She’s so full of shit, you never know when she’s telling the truth. They’re probably not even broken up, and if they are, I give it a month before the “reconcile”.

  5. $30k ?! That’s a hefty amount of money to just give to someone that you cannot trust. I would personally try and protect myself legally to get that money back by issuing it as a “Loan” to jay, but I’m sure Ashley did not. This is a big expensive mistake, hopefully she just moves on

  6. Everytome the public interest dies dowm she announces shes getting back with Jay. Then when people stsrt to not care again she announces how Jay once again victimized her. Im seeing a pattern. Who did Ashley scam to get the $30,000?

    1. Probably the old dude in Delaware that she drove out to fuck every week for $1,000 each time. She told Jay he just had to deal with it because she wasn’t gonna stop doing it. Shit, I wouldn’t either if I had that setup! That’s $52G’s a year LOL!! Jay’s sister claimed this a while back.

  7. If someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time. He was banging someone in a bathroom! He has cheated repeatedly. This is not a surprise.

  8. Huh… imagine the “TLC star” who JE brags about being friends with (reality: had same manager) and having a “major project” in the works with lying, especially for a lowlife dude!
    I do feel bad for her but it seems like she was the only one who didn’t see that coming from day 1.

    Truth is, anyone who befriends JE probably has rather concerning morals/ethics and definitely has a desire to tarnish their name and eventually be thrown under the bus for JEs wrongdoings.
    Imagine collaborating with someone who lies more than a clock ticks, has the business skills of a raccoon and feeds anyone with any association to the wolves with a steak tied around their neck (if she doesn’t eat it first)…

    Of course, that could all be yet another JE lie too…
