She definitely has some feelings about this. 90 Day Fiancé star Ashley Martson believes her estranged husband Jay Smith’s possible deportation is “payback” for everything he’s put her through, her spokesperson Johnny Donovan told Us Weekly on July 3. “Ashley feels as though Jay made his own bed,” he said. “Ashley has been suffering for a long time — it’s payback. Jay thought she was joking, but no. He made his bed, and now he has to lie in it.”
Jay — whose real name is Conroy St. Christopher Smith — is currently in ICE custody and faces deportation, In Touch exclusively revealed on July 3. The 21-year-old Jamaica native turned himself in to authorities after learning there was a warrant out for his arrest, a source explained. It stemmed from an alleged violation of a PFA (Protection From Abuse) order that was placed against him by his estranged wife on Monday, July 1.
When she first heard the news, Ashley, 33, seemed more sympathetic than her representative made her out to be. “Mark my words this is the hardest day of my life. I can’t believe this is how it ended,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on Tuesday, July 2. “The amount of sadness I’m feeling is unfathomable. There is no celebrating over here, just pure heartbreak!”
According to ICE records obtained by In Touch, Jay is being detained in York County Prison in Pennsylvania. Just hours before he was detained, Jay shared a video clip to his Instagram Story with cryptic lyrics about someone “turning” themselves in. If the reality TV star is ultimately deported, it would be the first time that a 90 Day Fiancé star has been removed from the country since the franchise’s premiere in 2014.
Back in April, Ashley took to her Instagram Story and exposed her now-ex for allegedly cheating on her for the second time. “It’s all fun and games until I get your disgusting cheating ass deported,” she threatened. It sounds like she followed through on that threat, and now, Jay’s future in the United States remains uncertain.
