Ashley claimed in an interview with Celebuzz on Wednesday that Jay's current detainment is the result of a break-in and subsequent rant on social media.

Ashley alleged that Jay broke into her Pennsylvania home while she was away on a highly-publicized vacation late last month.

Once Ashley returned home from her week-long cruise to the Bahamas, she reportedly called the police and was instructed to file a Protection From Abuse order.

"I filed a PFA, and I took all the evidence in on Monday, [July 1]" Ashley told Celebuzz.

"Jay was served at 7:10PM on Monday, and it specifically said in there 'you're not allowed to talk about this PFA or Ashley at all on any social media platform.'"

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.

"The officers called me at 1:30 [Wednesday] morning and said that he finally had turned himself in," Ashley said of Jay.

The Upper Allen Township police previously confirmed in a statement Jay had been taken into custody without incident on July 3.

"Smith was transported to the Cumberland County Prison for processing and arraignment. A hearing will be held at a later date," the police said in their statement.

Jay then went before a judge on Wednesday morning and was charged with a PFA violation, according to Celebuzz.

Jay was reportedly released without bail by the court. However, since U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had also had an active warrant for Jay's arrest due to his immigration status, he was handed over to the federal agency, who subsequently transferred him to York County Prison in Pennsylvania.

"He's in our custody. He's just getting put into the facility," a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement spokesperson told RadarOnline on July 3.

"It looks like he's going to be going through the motions. He will see an immigration judge to see if he'll be deported."

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 because he's been living in the United States illegally since she withdrew his adjustment of status paperwork earlier this year.

"Jay and I have a PFA hearing next Wednesday [July 10]... and then he'll go back to York Country Prison until he is seen by an immigration judge," Ashley told Celebuzz.

Jay could reportedly be released on bond, but an immigration officer allegedly told Ashley that scenario is unlikely.

Ashley and Jay originally appeared on the sixth season of 90 Day Fiance on TLC last year, and are currently appearing on Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, which has shown the couple's relationship on the edge of divorce and will air its season finale on TLC on July 14.

"Our relationship has been very toxic from the beginning, and I just never did anything about it, because I knew if I contacted police that Jay would be deported," Ashley told Celebuzz. "There was a lot of abuse going on in our relationship."

Although Ashley has made it known for weeks she wants Jay to be deported, she told the website "it's a very sad situation overall."

"I'm not popping champagne bottles celebrating today," Ashley admitted.

"It's hard to sit here and think about how he's sitting in a jail cell right now, but I also have to remember everything he put me through the past 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 pair is still legally married since Jay has yet to sign the papers.

"I still have a great deal of love for him so it isn't easy... Picturing my husband in jail is the worst feeling in the world," Ashley lamented to Celebuzz.

Ashley also wanted to set the record straight on a couple of other points during her interview in light of backlash from people accusing her of being a racist and fame-seeker.

"The biggest misconception that I want people to know is that they're claiming that I basically went over to Jamaica, found someone, and brought them over here so I could be famous on TV," Ashley explained.

"I already filed for Jay's visa nine months before the TV show even contacted me to be on the show... Jay and I dated for a solid year nonstop before the show ever came into play."

Ashley added that Jay's race had nothing to do with her decision to leave him and get the police involved.

"If he was European or from wherever... I'm sorry, If you're here illegally and you're treating me poorly, I'm not going to file your paperwork," Ashley said, adding that Jay had poor intentions from the beginning.

"He came over here on a K-1 visa. A K-1 visa is for love. And he was never in it for love, from Day 1... He was absolutely in it for the visa."

Ashley is apparently in disbelief her marriage ended this way and told the website it's a heartbreaking situation.

"I was truly in love with him," she noted. "The finality of this is scathing."

Ashley and Jay got married in May 2018 after Jay arrived in America on a K-1 visa, which gave the couple 90 days to get married or Jay would have to return to his home country of Jamaica.

Ashley initially filed for divorce from Jay on January 11 after she allegedly caught him cheating multiple times. However, she later withdrew the paperwork just 11 days later on January 22.

Ashley then filed for divorce from Jay for the second time several months later.

In June, Ashley had stated she was expecting Jay to be deported back to Jamaica in August and claimed he was so desperate to remain in America that he had offered to pay her to withdraw her divorce filing and re-file his adjustment of status paperwork.

According to Ashley, her withdrawal of Jay's adjustment of status paperwork meant he was no longer in the United States legally and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement had already visited her home attempting to arrest Jay -- whom Ashley claims has also been working in America illegally -- for deportation.

"[Immigration and Customs Enforcement] has already been here to arrest him. They know where he works... I mean obviously if they come to my house at this point, I'm gonna tell them where he's at. So I'm not sure why he's still sticking around because we got a letter three weeks ago saying he has an active warrant for his arrest," Ashley said in June.

"I didn't know this, but your local police department can not arrest somebody for being an illegal immigrant. ICE has to arrest him. They have to come from Philadelphia and arrest him."

"So unless Jay would like assault me or something, then [in that case the local police] would contact immigration and say, 'Hey, we just charged Jay with assault, he's wanted for deportation,' and then ICE would take over," she added, hypothetically detailing the scenario that appears to have resulted in Jay's July 3 detainment.
