This season of 90 Day Fiance has become more of a show on social media than on our TV screens once a week. Cast Instagram posts have taken on a life of their own in a very ugly way. And unfortunately for Ashley Martson, social media escalated a fight between herself and her (now former) friend Natalie who was featured on the show.
On Sunday’s episode, fans saw how it all started. Ashley decided to cut Natalie out of her wedding and her life because the conflict she was creating with Ashley’s fiance Jay Smith. Since then, Ashley claims that Natalie has been aggressively threatening to share very personal and challenging aspects of Ashley’s past with news outlets. Ultimately, Ashley beat her to the punch and went public with the information herself.
Earlier this week, Ashley posted an old picture of herself with a black eye after being abused by an ex-fiance. She wrote, “It’s a photo of me after my ex fiance beat me up badly. I left him and pressed charges. I got a PFA against him and he spent time in jail. He never cheated on me.” The post was deleted, but reality blogger John Yates kept a screenshot up on his Instagram.
According to an Newsweek article, Natalie violated Ashley’s medical privacy by sharing her inability to bear children.
Ashley responded with this now-deleted statement, “Natalie just announced to the world that I had a hysterectomy and Jay is going to leave me because I cannot give him children. Due to cancerous cells, I was forced to undergo a hysterectomy at age 26. We can use a surrogate if finances are there in the future. The possibility of us not having our own biological child is there.”
Somehow, Natalie has a preposterous notion that she is the victim in all this. John Yates shared a screen shot of a conversation on his Instagram. Natalie took a threatening tone. She wrote, “Oh you finally unblocked me you think your so funny sending my police report. You f*cked with the wrong person Ashley! Just watch your back.”
The police report is in relation to Natalie’s shoplifting arrest last year. Jay had posted a screenshot of the docket. Nevertheless, he too deleted this post.
Ashley replied to Natalie, “You need to get your meds figured out and stop messaging me. You’re already going to get sued by network I don’t think you want me coming at you too.”
With all of the Instagram deleting, it seems like Ashley and Jay want to remove themselves from the drama. Or did they consciously post and delete, knowing that John Yates would end up post a screenshot? Stranger things have happened.
