Fake drama? A month after filing for divorce, 90 Day Fiancé star Ashley Martson is claiming that she and husband Jay Smith never actually split during their relationship.

“I’m breaking the NDA and surprise: Jay and I have never separated since the day we were married,” the 32-year-old wrote on Sunday, February 10, via her Instagram Story. “Breaking the NDA means I won’t be paid a dime for future shows. We were made to act as if our relationship was no longer active.” (The duo are rumored to be a part of the next season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After.)

Us Weekly previously confirmed that Martson filed for divorce from Smith, 20, on January 11 after the Jamaica native alleged that his wife was unfaithful in a cryptic Instagram post. (Smith, for his part, was previously caught talking to another girl on a dating app one day after they wed in Las Vegas in May 2018.)

Nine days after Marston filed her divorce petition, however, the TLC personality withdrew the paperwork. The twosome, who documented their relationship on season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé, appeared to be in good spirits on Thursday, February 7, as they were spotted leaving Starbucks in New York City.

Martson also addressed a series of other reports about her on Sunday, including accusations that she was faking her battle with lupus and used the money raised by fans on GoFundMe for something other than her medical bills.

“I was very sick a few weeks ago and was admitted into the ER for a seizure and acute renal failure,” she wrote on her Instagram Story. “After three doctors and many decisions regarding dialysis and a possible port placement, they first decided to try IV treatments and medications for blood calcium/potassium levels as an alternative. Fortunately, the alternative treatment was successful.”

Marston underwent surgery on January 15 two days after she collapsed at her home and was subsequently hospitalized for kidney failure. Shortly after the star’s complications from lupus made headlines, a GoFundMe campaign was launched to help her pay for her treatment.

“Many of your reported the Go Fund Me as fraud, so I *did* have to prove my hospitalization so that the money would be given to me, and it was,” Marston wrote on Sunday. “Thank you again. If I couldn’t prove it, then the Go Fund Me would have been removed as a violation of their policies.”
