In fact, there are a lot of tragic details about Ashley’s life that some fans are probably not even aware of. Keep reading below for everything you need to know.
The Bold and the Beautiful: Tragic Details About Ashley Jones
Back in 2019, Ashley Jones filed for divorce from her ex-husband, Joel Henricks. Back in 2019, the actress filed for divorce only a week after she was granted a restraining order from him. The ex-couple share a son, Hayden. In her restraining order, Ashley said at the time, “Joel was trying to get my cell phone from me because I was recording him being belligerent and threatening me and beginning to get physical. I dropped the phone and Joel let me go. I left with Hayden, but Joel convinced me that he would not drink anymore, so eventually I went back.”
Ashley went on to say that her ex beat her so bad, he caused a spiral fracture on her hand and that she had to have surgery.
In 2022, Ashley’s ex won 50/50 custody of their son, Hayden, which definitely felt like a big blow for the daytime televisoin star. Joel told Us Weekly that year, “Last week, the Judge made a finding that it was in our son’s best interests to have both of his parents share joint custody, and no sweeter words were ever heard. More importantly, Ms. Jones and I have agreed that joint custody, on an equal basis, is best for our son and I will continue to be what I’ve always been: a loving father to an amazing son!”
