So they gave it another shot
Though they were still under NDA at the time, fans could follow along as the divorce filing was retracted and as Jay bragged about a "mystery woman" on Instagram, resting his head on legs that clearly belonged to Ashley.
They even weathered a scandal together
A lot of fans felt shocked and betrayed after Jay accidentally went live from an account that was supposedly "leaking" photos of the two of them. Ashley apologized profusely.
But they made it through to the other side
That included a second hospitalization for Ashley, this time one that they had planned in advance. There was also a lengthy recovery period, during which Jay waited on her hand and foot as her health returned.
Unfortunately, the worst wasn't over
On April 15, Ashley took to her Instagram Stories to strongly hint that Jay had cheated on her. Castmate Larissa Lima then revealed to fans that Ashley and Jay had broken up, which Ashley then confirmed.
Ashley said that Jay cheated again
She even identified one woman as a "homewrecker," which is not a thing, though Jay says that he met up with that woman only after he and Ashley had split.
She filed for divorce
Ashley included allegations of adultery in her divorce filing.
