90 Day Fiancé season six's Ashley Martson almost filed for divorce from Jay Smith.

E! News has learned that on January 11, the 32-year-old filed papers to end her and her 20-year-old husband and co-star's eight-month-long marriage. However, on Tuesday, she withdrew the paperwork, according to a Pennsylvania court. The stars, who had sparked split rumors for more than a month, have not commented.

Two days after the divorce filing, Martson revealed on Instagram that she was hospitalized for the second time in weeks for complications from lupus, and was being treated for kidney failure. Smith rushed to be by her bedside.

"I may have hurt you. I may have not been a good husband. Jumping on a plane the second I found out you was in the hospital was something I didn't even think twice to do," he wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post. "We have our differences but as long as I have life I will never let you sit alone and suffer. I love you and nothing will ever change that. Thank you for having me here to support you."

Rumors of trouble in paradise between Martson, who has two children, and Smith began not long after their wedding in Las Vegas, which was shown on 90 Day Fiancé in December.

Three days after the ceremony, Martson caught Smith using a dating app. During the 90 Day Fiancé reunion, which aired in December she said, "I mean, when someone cheats on you, you don't automatically fall out of love with them," adding, "I really did—do—love him, but maybe he really did just want a green card." Smith, who is from Jamaica and whose real name is Conroy Smith, later wrote in a since-deleted Instagram post, "FYI: For everyone coming at me. I wasn't the only one 'talking' aka 'cheating' with other people during our 'relationship/marriage.'"

The two sparked split rumors again right before the holidays, after they deleted their photos together from Instagram.
