Jay Smith of ’90 Day Fiancé’ Arrested, Faces Deportation Back to Jamaica

90 Day Fiancé‘s Jay (Conroy) Smith was arrested on Wednesday after violating a protection from abuse order his estranged wife Ashley Martson filed on Monday.

The 21-year-old reality star is facing deportation and is in U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody, according to the Upper Allen Police Department.

He is being held at York County Prison in Pennsylvania.

“On July 2, 2019, Upper Allen Police investigated a report of a PFA violation,” the report on the police department’s website reads.

“The protected party lives in Upper Allen Township and reported a social media post made by Smith, which was in violation of the order,” the report continues. “As a result of the investigation, an arrest warrant was obtained for Smith. On July 3, 2019, Smith was taken into custody without incident.

“Smith was transported to the Cumberland County Prison for processing and arraignment. A hearing will be held at a later date.”

The Jamaica native reportedly turned himself in to police after an arrest warrant was issued for violating the protective order Martson filed on July 1.

The 21-year-old tattoo artist had been in the United States illegally after he wed the 32-year-old mother of two and she failed to file his adjustment of status.

On Wednesday night, Martson posted a photo of herself to Instagram, saying, “I’m setting the record straight about Jay’s deportation,” with the caption, “link in bio.”

She linked to her interview with Celebuzz! where she explained that she filed the Protection From Abuse (PFA) after she came home from vacation and reportedly found Smith had broken into her house.

She said filed the PFA to also prevent Smith from speaking about her on social media but after receiving it, he went straight to Instagram and violated the order put in place.

“I filed a PFA, and I took all the evidence in on Monday,” she said. “Jay was served at 7:10 PM 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.’”

Martson said that Smith went on social media “the very next day… and made a post [about her and the PFA].”

“Jay and I have a PFA hearing next Wednesday… and then he’ll go back to York Country Prison until he is seen by an immigration judge,” Martson told the outlet.

Martson said that it’s “a very sad situation overall… I’m not popping champagne bottles celebrating today.”

She continued: “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.”

Martson and Smith got married in May 2018. She told the outlet she “filed for his green card and then I retracted it because he cheated on me again.”

The pair began dating during Season 6 of TLC’s 90 Day Fiancé‘. Martson met Smith while in Jamaica for a friend’s wedding.

In April she filed divorce papers, for the second time, in a Pennsylvania court, according to E! News.

Martson reportedly first filed for divorce from in January, eight months after getting married.

Two weeks after filing, Martson withdrew the paperwork, according to a Pennsylvania court.

Smith has not spoken publicly about his arrest as of this writing.

Blade Runner Star Rutger Hauer Has Died Aged 75

Hollywood star Rutger Hauer has died aged 75.

The actor was best known for playing Roy Batty in the 1982 movie Blade Runner and also Sin City, Batman Begins and TV show True Blood.

His agent Steve Kenis confirmed Hauer died on Friday following a short illness. His funeral was held on Wednesday.

Tributes have begun pouring in for the star, with Oscar-winning director Guillermo del Toro tweeting to say: “RIP the great Rutger Hauer: an intense, deep, genuine and magnetic actor that brought truth, power and beauty to his films.”

KISS musician Gene Simmons wrote: “Sad to hear Rutger Hauer has passed away. He was always a gentleman, kind and compassionate. Sending our condolences and prayers to his family, friends and fans.”

Hauer was born in Breukelen in the Netherlands and did stints in both the merchant navy and army before he became an actor.

He got his big break in 1969, when he became the lead in TV series Floris.

Away from acting, Hauer launched The Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation, which aimed to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS, especially within children and pregnant women.

Issuing a statement following his death, the foundation said: “The Rutger Hauer Starfish Association announces with infinite sadness that after a very short illness, on Friday, July 19, 2019, Rutger passed away peacefully at his Dutch home.

“He leaves his beloved wife Ineke, after they have been together for fifty years.

“We at Starfish will always cherish the many unforgettable memories we have of Rutger and his dedication to the Rutger Hauer Starfish Association.

“One of Rutger’s last wishes was that Starfish should continue its charity activity and its fight against the AIDS disease, and with Ineke’s precious help, involvement and direction we will follow Rutger’s wish and will do our best to carry on Rutger’s inestimable legacy.”

Freeform defends Halle Bailey’s casting as Ariel in “The Little Mermaid”!

Freeform defends Halle Bailey's casting as Ariel in "The Little Mermaid"!

Just in case you haven’t heard, Halle Bailey is the new Ariel, in an upcoming “The Little Mermaid” movie! She has been receiving messages from fans and other celebrities, congratulating her for landing the role!

Amongst those who congratulated her is Halle Berry, in a tweet she posted, “In case you needed a reminder… Halles get it DONE. Congratulations @chloexhalle on this amazing opportunity, we can’t wait to see what you!” She also added that she was “thrilled” for the 19 year old. However, not everyone was happy about Disney’s decision to cast a black woman for this role.

Some critics went as far as petitioning Disney to recast for this role, and titled their petition #NotMyAriel!  They suggested that Halle should be replaced by a white woman with red hair,  who would resemble the Ariel that they know from the 1989 animated version of The Little Mermaid. Now Freeform, Disney’s cable network, has decided to issue an open letter in response to this.

The letter read, “Yes. The original author of The Little Mermaid was Danish. Ariel…is a mermaid. She lives in an underwater kingdom in international waters and can legit swim wherever she wants (even though that often upsets King Triton, absolute zaddy). But for the sake of argument, let’s say that Ariel, too, is Danish”.

Freeform also added that, “Danish mermaids can be black because Danish *people* can be black. Ariel can sneak up to the surface at any time with her pals Scuttle and the *ahem* Jamaican crab Sebastian (sorry, Flounder!) and keep that bronze base tight. Black Danish people, and this mer-folk, can also *genetically* (!!!) have red hair”! Freeform then went on to remind the critics that Ariel and the story, is only fictional!

Now the problem is that some Twitter users are not so happy with “Queen Bey” as Nala! Honestly, I personally wouldn’t find fault in anything that Beyonce does, but clearly, not everyone shares the same sentiments as myself!

The critic tweeted, “It’s like something is off here, maybe the lions look too real for voice-overs. And I know Nala is Beyonce but it sounds very Beyonce. It’s so distracting…”! Another also posted, “Okay I’m going to be brave and say this but I don’t think I like Beyonce as Nala. I wish she had just done the soundtrack but her voice doesn’t suit Nala. Hope I’m wrong…”!

Another Twitter user suggested that Queen Bey should have tried to change her voice to suit the character, saying her voice is “too distinct for this. It doesn’t even sound like she attempted to change the sound of her voice for the character”.
