Ashley Mattingly Was from Texas
Ashley Mattingly was born on September 10, 1986 in Dallas, Texas and grew up in Frisco, Texas. She has a twin brother, Billy Mattingly, and a sister, Christy Mattingly Deweese.
Ashley and Billy graduated from the local Frisco High School in 2005. She lived in Dallas and Laguna Beach owing to her modelling career.

The beautiful Texan embarked on a modelling career, which brought her to LA. She modeled for Playboy and was chosen as Miss March in 2011, getting the customary centerfold photo spread in the magazine.
Playboy led to more career opportunities for Mattingly. As she gushed about in an interview, “I love playboy esp. after watching the girls next door it was my fav. show! I’ve been busy with appearances and signings. It’s soo much fun, also I’m the spokesmodel for Swimgerie.”
Mattingly was featured on Playboy Radio a few times a week. She also found success as a fitness model and gained attention for sharing her fitness routine and snaps.
Lane Garrison Was Arrested for Hitting Mattingly
Ashley Mattingly was in a relationship with Prison Break actor Lane Garrison, until he was arrested in 2012 for allegedly hitting her. Security camera footage released by TMZ back then reportedly showed Garrison slap Mattingly during an alleged domestic dispute.
Garrison denied there was any domestic violence, but pleaded no contest to the charges, thereby avoiding jail time. After he was released, the couple put on a united front.
However, their relationship didn’t last. Garrison moved on, welcoming his first child, daughter Linden Rose, with his fiancée Mary Katilin in 2018.
While Garrison had run-ins with the law in the past, Ashley Mattingly had her own share of troubles.
She had an alleged stalker incident in 2016. She also battled alcohol issues, charged with DUI in 2016 after ramming into four parked cars with a golf cart.
Mattingly Reportedly Died by Suicide
According to her siblings, Mattingly moved to Austin, Texas two years ago due to her struggle with alcohol abuse.
Recently, the shelter-in-place order amid the coronavirus pandemic made her feel lonely, but she adopted a nine-month-old puppy as a companion.
Ashley Mattingly was reportedly found unresponsive at her home after a friend, who was concerned about the lack of contact from Mattingly, called local law enforcement to do a wellness check.
Details about the cause of her death are unknown pending the autopsy. However, her family has confirmed that she died by suicide.
Her siblings, Billy and Christy, revealed the news on their social media profiles. They said that she left behind a suicide note, but they haven’t seen it yet because the investigation is ongoing.
