90 Day Fiance couple Ashley Martson and Jay Smith had few good onscreen moments together, except for the times she was visiting him in Jamaica. After warnings from friend Natalie, a post-wedding Tinder profile, and two separate divorce petitions, Ashley finally realized that a vacation romance does not always translate to a real world relationship.
The scenes currently airing on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After went down just before Ashley filed for divorce a second time in April 2019. Last week’s episode was particularly rough since Ashley discovered that Jay had intimate relations with a client at his work. So who could blame her for taking some time off? The question is, where did she go?
Ashley did announce that she was heading to a wellness center in North Carolina on June 17th for a women’s retreat. This information started to make rounds on social media. Instead, internet users claimed that she was actually in rehab for depression. Ashley was quick to clarify, and Screenrant reported her statement.
She said, “I’m taking the steps to better myself and to live a more peaceful life. I have a lot of ways about me that need to change before I can genuinely be happy or hold a happy relationship. I’m struggling more than any of you will ever know. I put on a good face for people.”
Ashley revealed that she never got help after her terrifying ordeal at 19 years old. She said, “I was kidnapped and raped in 2005. I am always in fight or flight mode, I am always on edge and I have never ever gone to therapy over it.”

It’s great that Ashley is finally dealing with her very dark past. Hopefully, she can start making decisions that bring her happiness. For right now, Ashley is treating herself to a Caribbean vacation. The blonde bombshell posted a picture to her Instagram with the words, “literally had the best week.”
As for Jay, he is currently in the country illegally. Ashley withdrew his Adjustment of Status application. Perhaps he should be the one traveling back to the tropics.
