She’s breaking her silence. Rumors have been swirling about 90 Day Fiancé star Ashley Martson frauding fans, but now, in a shocking statement posted to her Instagram story on Sunday, February 10, the blonde beauty is setting the record straight — even if that means breaking her NDA. Scroll through the gallery to read what she had to say about the fake Instagram page and her relationship with Jay.
First, Ashley addressed accusations that she was faking lupus.
“I was very sick a few weeks ago and was admitted into the ER for a seizure and acute renal failure,” she wrote. “After three doctors and many decisions regarding dialysis and a possible port placement, they first decided to try IV treatments and medications for blood calcium/potassium levels as an alternative.”

“Fortunately, the alternative treatment was successful,” she said.

Then she opened up about the fake Instagram pages.
“As for Jay, yes he made a fake page and I was aware. We are sorry that this has placed doubt in your minds in regards to our entire story,” she explained. “This is what happened: as you know, there was a first account called ‘calling you out fraud’ that was exposing/posting personal photos that ONLY my old friend on the scooter had access to. Various blogs and accounts told us that she was sending them tons of information about us before the show even began to air (90daysavageedition, etc.)”

“When we finally got this original account (‘calling you out fraud’) removed for violating Instagram terms, Jay made the second one (and name it ‘calling you out fraud 2’) in hopes to distract the audience from the fake messages and personal photos of myself and my children that she would post. The ceremony photos were originally posted on Natalie’s original ‘calling you out fraud’ page. Jay just coped and pasted them to the new ‘2’ account so that it would look like an extension of the original.”

“These photos were NOT from our wedding day, they were from a ceremony we had in Jamaica before the show even contacted us or started filming. We did not break our contract by reporting them from the original ‘calling you out fraud’ site. There are still many fake accounts circulating that we can confirm are Natalie, as the photos being posted there are, again, photos that only SHE has access to,” Ashley claimed.
However, Natalie denied Ashley’s claims in a statement to In Touch. “I in fact have NO involvement in any fake accounts. My fiancé has a response to all of these fabricated lies and false allegations that we will be dropping today. I am tired of being drug through the mud and trying to defend myself,” Natalie said. “As soon as I start feeling vindicated and have cast mates and hundreds of fans apologizing to me, Ashley tries to come out and cover her tracks and quite frankly we are sick of it.”

Ashley also admitted that Jay did go live on Instagram by accident…
“Did Jay mess up and go live? He sure did!” she said.

“Again, by making the second account, he was trying to beat Natalie from starting another one so she couldn’t continue to defame us or post our address, personal numbers, and children’s photos,” Ashley alleged.” By now, I know that our efforts are pointless and she has continued to make MORE anyway… To be clear: I never claimed that the ‘calling you out fraud 2’ page was Natalie. I’ve said that the ‘Jamaican32’ and the original ‘calling you out fraud’ were her and I’m still standing by that.”

On the next post, Ashley took the opportunity to talk about the show.
“We have been asked to be very deceptive about many things during our run with the show,” Ashley claimed. “We have been asked (and agreed for some time) to fake our relationship by not posting anything that makes us appear that we are together.”
In Touch reached out to TLC for comment but did not hear back by the time of publication.

“Personally, I thought this show was just for entertainment & that’s what we were told. Since the show has ended I never confirmed the status of our relationship due to the contract,” she claimed.

She also blasted fellow ’90 Day Fiancé’ contestants who spoke out against her.
“As for fellow cast members popping off: YOU WORK FOR THE SAME SHOW, so — acting like you’re mortified about the falsity of things that happen is COMPLETELY hypocritical. Most of you from Season 6 went on a social media TIRADE about the editing and fraud of the show, so don’t suddenly act like you have no idea how this goes.”

“ANY OF YOU (this season and BEYOND!) could have texted or called us personally but instead you wanted to jump on some drama wagon and back into the spotlight again, instead of KNOWING BETTER and being REAL. You’re ridiculous and just as much a part of this facade as me.”

“I hope this clears things up — you are the believers. I can’t make you believe me any more than you do or do not, but this is my record of what’s happening and the choice is yours. Also, my Instagram is being managed by a colleague while I’m away, You’ll still see things here that look like I’m posting, and any messages or information will be screened before being passed on to me. Thanks for reading.”

She even said that she and Jay “never separated” since they were married!
“Since I’m such a ‘money-hungry scammer,’ I’m breaking the NDA and surprise: Jay and I have never separated since the day we were married,” she wrote.

“Breaking the NDA means I won’t be paid a dime for future shows. We were made to act as if our relationship was no longer active,” she said.

Mic = drop.
“I now understand why so many of the same cast members who are talking sh-t now, reached out to me to warn me of all of this before. Interesting,” she concluded her post.
