What happened to TikTok star Ashley McAdam?

Recently, Ashley has been posting a series of videos on her TikTok in which she asks for prayers and seems to be going through a very difficult time. In the first video, Ashley writes, "Please send prayers for my family, we are in such a bad situation. Everything was looking up and it came crashing so quick."

This initial video naturally left many people curious about what had happened to Ashley and her family, and while she has posted several videos since that first one, she hasn't explained exactly what's going on. In fact, she's even asked her fans to stop asking her what's going on, saying that for now, TikTok is just an outlet where she can express her feelings.

Reports online are claiming that Ashley's husband, Jesse McAdam, harmed himself.

Although the reports have yet to be confirmed by any major news source or by Ashley herself, rumors are circulating online that the reason behind Ashley's string of videos is that her husband, Jesse "Jay" McAdam, shot himself. One user on Reddit — whose connection to the situation is unclear — claims Ashley says there was a domestic dispute between her and Jesse, prompting the latter to use the weapon on himself.

When another user replied asking where Jesse shot himself, the original poster said that the bullet entered in the "facial/head area," adding later, "I was told he had surgery on his esophagus and a couple other things."
