Ashley Martson was rushed to the hospital by ambulance on Sunday, January 13, after collapsing at her home.
The 90 Day Fiancé star, 32, who appeared on the season 6 of the TLC hit show alongside husband Jay Smith, took to Instagram on Sunday, January 13, to announce the sad incident.
Alongside a picture of herself lying in a hospital bed with her eyes closed, she wrote in the caption, "I’m sorry if this photo offends anyone but I will not hide that I’m sick".
If I can help one person with lupus then posting this is worth it. I was found unresponsive this morning at my home.
Noting that she was in acute kidney failure due to lupus, she added that she "will begin dialysis shortly."
The actress ended the post by asking her fan followers not to write negative comments because she is "already scared and I don’t need to be kicked while I’m already down."
Here's the heartwrenching post, check it out.

I’m sorry if this photo offends anyone but I will not hide that I’m sick. If I can help one person with lupus then posting this is worth it. I was found unresponsive this morning at my home. The Ambulance took me to the hospital where it was found that I am in acute kidney failure due to lupus. I will begin dialysis shortly. I will not let this beat me. I know I’m strong enough to battle through this,not just for myself but for my kids. I will be transferred to another hospital this evening that is better equipped. Please pray for myself and my family as I know it’s going to be a very tough road ahead for all of us. Thank you for your continuous support and prayers #ashley #lupus #kidneyfailure #90dayfiance #tlc. **please keep negative comments off this post.

The is not the first time Ashley got hospitalized in recent months. The television personality was previously rushed to the hospital over Christmas due to the complications from lupus, an autoimmune disease that causes pain, inflammation and damage to the body.
Martson has been going through a hard time for a couple of months. The day after the actress married Jay, whom she met during a vacation in Jamaica, she discovered that he was cheating on her. He had allegedly been using dating apps and trying to meet up with women.
Ashley's hospitalization comes two months after The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes revealed through Instagram that her pregnant co-star Porsha Williams was rushed to the hospital for extreme pain.
