Ashley and Jay originally starred on 90 Day Fiance's sixth season in 2018 and then returned for Season 4 of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?, which will conclude with the season's two-part Tell-All reunion special airing July 21 and July 28 on TLC.

In her posting, Ashley also thanked her fans for their support.

"As the show is approaching the final episode, I wanted to take time to say I appreciate all the support and love from the fans. I was given an opportunity that many wish for and I am grateful for that," she wrote.

"The amount of support I have received majorly outweighs the hate and I appreciate every message that you so kindly took time out of your day to write me. I have felt the true meaning of love and heartbreak and many other lessons while filming this show."

Even though her marriage was full of scandal and drama and is ending in divorce, Ashley insisted she doesn't regret participating in 90 Day Fiance

"I was given the chance to let the world take a sneak peak into my life and even though it didn't end how any one wanted or anticipated, it's not something I regret or would take back!," she wrote.

However, Ashley also said she has discovered there is "a lot" she needed to "to work on."

"I realized that there is a lot I need to work on with myself," she wrote.

Ashley also voiced her support for the new couples that will be part of 90 Day Fiance's new season.

"I'm sure next season won't disappoint and you will get the opportunity to meet new couples and follow their Journey!," she wrote.

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.  However, she later withdrew the paperwork just 11 days later on January 22.

According to Ashley, she had a change of heart after she was hospitalized for kidney failure and lupus complications and Jay was there for her while he was ill.

Ashley then filed for divorce from Jay for the second time in April, citing "adultery" on Jay's part as the reason for their split following months of cheating allegations and rumors.

In June, Ashley had stated she was expecting Jay 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, she did originally file Jay's adjustment of status paperwork that would allow him to legally remain in America after their wedding, however she withdrew it two weeks later after "he screwed up again."

Ashley claimed 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 illegally -- for deportation.

Ashley said Jay had moved out of their shared Pennsylvania home while she was visiting Texas in May.

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 From Abuse order Ashley had obtained against him.

Ashley has said she had filed the protective order 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."
