Ashley Martson and Jay Smith were among the biggest train wrecks of season 6 of 90 Day Fiance.
At the time the show was filmed, 33-year-old Ashley, a single mom of 2, was engaged to 20-year-old Jay.
A short a dramatic romance
The couple met in Jay’s home country of Jamaica when Ashley was on vacation. They continued talking after Ashley went home to Pennsylvania, and Ashley returned to Jamaica six months later.
Jay proposed during Ashley’s second trip to Jamaica, and the couple decided to go through the K-1 visa process. They were married in April 2018.
Shortly after the marriage, Ashley discovered that Jay was on Tinder, and Jay’s friends at the local barbershop confirmed to her that he was cheating.
According to Ashley, everything featured on the show was true, so fans very confidently took sides.
Ashley filed for divorce in January of 2019, but she later changed her mind. The couple has since filed for divorce and withdrawn for a second time, and their relationship has been on and off since they were married.
Ashley even had a Protection from Abuse order against Jay as recently as January, but they seem to have worked things out.
Jay posted a video with Ashley
Yesterday on Instagram, Jay took to Instagram to share what he’s been up to since he’s been self-isolating.
In the video, he, Ashley, and a friend dance while drinking (and spilling) champagne. The two got very cozy, so it seems their on and off relationship is back on, at least for now.
Fans were overwhelmingly opposed to the reunion. Even those who weren’t categorically opposed to Ashley and Jay as a couple dished out advice.
One fan said, “I’m all for working things out. I’d just suggest keeping it more private and when or if it blows up again, you guys keep it off social media.”
Other fans were just completely over the relationship.
“Wtf?!?! You guys won’t learn,” a commenter chimed in.
Ashley still lists her name as “Ashley Smith” on Instagram (rather than Ashley Martson), and she’s sharing videos with Jay too.
Yesterday, she posted a TikTok inspired video that she shot with Jay in front of her bathroom mirror.
Her post was met with the same mixed reactions as Jay’s; some fans were encouraging while others thought she should move on.
“Girl! I just can’t with you. Make up your mind,” said one frustrated fan.
Ashley updates her Instagram page several times a week, often with sponsored posts advertising various products.
Jay keeps his Instagram more personal, usually posting photos with friends or selfies. Fans will surely be able to keep up with this couple online in the future.
