90 Day Fiance star Ashley Martson claims the reason for Jay Smith's GoFundMe page is a lie.

Jay is currently in the custody of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and facing deportation after he was arrested in early July for violating a protection order his estranged wife had obtained against him.

Jay currently has an active GoFundMe account that claims to be raising money to hire Jay an immigration lawyer to help free him from the custody of ICE. The financial goal was set at $5,000, and as of July 18, over $4,100 had accumulated.

But Ashley is claiming the money is really intended for the hiring of a defense attorney to fight the protective order violation Jay was charged with.

"In regards to the GoFundMe... it was all lies," Ashley told Celebuzz.

"The GoFundMe was made to pay for a criminal defense attorney to fight a PFA violation."

The GoFundMe description of Jay's legal battle also states the PFA violation charges were dropped, which Ashley is denying.

"[Jay's friend] specifically states the charges were dropped for the PFA on the GoFundMe. That was a total lie. We had court [on Wednesday, July 17] where a judge found Jay guilty of violating the PFA," Ashley said.

"Everyone who donated money paid for an attorney to try and fight charges of abusing a woman, not to save Jay from deportation."

Public court records show that Jay was found guilty of Contempt For Violation of Order or Agreement, and he was paroled by the state court immediately but ordered to abide by the existing protection from abuse order.

However, since Jay was already being detained by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement pending his deportation hearing, he remains in federal custody.

Ashley also claimed the woman behind Jay's GoFundMe page is a woman he's currently dating who allegedly works as a stripper in their Pennsylvania town.

Ashley told Celebuzz that Jay and the woman have been dating since January and she was present in the courtroom on Wednesday.

Ashley reportedly said she had filed the PFA on July 1 after learning Jay had broken into her Pennsylvania home while she was away on a highly-publicized cruise to the Bahamas in June.

"Jay was served at 7:10PM on [July 1], and it specifically said in there 'you're not allowed to talk about this PFA or Ashley at all on any social media platform,'" Ashley told Celebuzz earlier this month.

But Ashley said Jay did not act accordingly, as he "went on social media and made a post" about her and the PFA "the very next day."

Jay's post read, "Chill. The truth is going to hurt and the truth is going to make some people sick to their stomach. I give zero f-cks about a (PFA). The Truth is still going to come out," according to Celebuzz.

Jay also reportedly wrote on his Instagram Stories, "I realize I always waste my f-cking time trying to care about other people feeling and other people kids and other people f-cking privacy. And no matter what the cops always show up at my house for dumb f-cking reasons no more. And go f-ck yourself."

Ashley then notified the police, who issued an arrest warrant for Jay after they investigated his social media postings and determined he had violated the order.

Ashley claimed officers had called her on in the early morning hours of July 3 to inform her Jay had turned himself in.

Jay then went before a judge on July 3 where he was charged with a PFA violation.

However, while he was released without bail after the state court hearing on the PFA violation charge, Jay was then handed over to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency as there was also an active warrant for his arrest for allegedly being in America illegally.

According to Ashley, Jay's arrest on the PFA violation merely accelerated his detainment by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, as they had allegedly already been planning to detain Jay on July 8 due to his outstanding warrant.

Ashley told Celebuzz that ICE had been looking for Jay since June 28 since he's been living in the United States illegally since she withdrew his adjustment of status paperwork earlier this year.

Although Ashley filed for divorce from Jay in April, citing "adultery" on Jay's part as the reason for their split following months of cheating allegations and rumors, the divorce has not been finalized and the pair are still legally married.

Ashley told Celebuzz she didn't want to get into all the details that led to a PFA being filed against Jay.

"I just want this behind me. A PFA isn't easy to acquire... If I did show the evidence people's jaws would drop," Ashley said. "It's sad [fans] don't know the truth, but I am not going to post it. It's very disturbing."

Ashley said Jay will definitely be deported from the United States back to Jamaica, but his deportation could take up to a year.

"I have no control over what immigration does with Jay. It's his fault... This is a hard lesson," Ashley told Celebuzz, adding that Jay's PFA violation may prevent him from being able to challenge his deportation.

In the meantime, Ashley said she is waiting for Jay to sign the divorce paperwork.

"No one truly knows what I went through for the past year, and instead of dragging him through the mud I will keep the facts and evidence to myself and the courts to move on with my life," Ashley shared.

"This isn't what I ever wanted. I wish things didn't end this way."
