"Jay remains in custody as the deportation process can take 6-8 months. Ashley's in New York and is going to take the 4th of July holiday to focus on herself and her kids, and just try not to worry about it. They'll both be in court on Tuesday and Wednesday," a rep for Jay and Ashley said in a statement to AMI.
