Troubled Canadian socialite Jasmine Hartin has been rearrested following a brouhaha at the resort owned by her estranged common-law hubby’s wealthy family.

Hartin, 32, had been on bail since she shot dead one of Belize’s top police officers.

On Tuesday, Hartin — accompanied by her mother and a pal — stormed onto the Alaia Belize and confronted Andrew Ashcroft after he barred her from seeing the couple’s two children.

“I’ve done nothing wrong!” she told reporters after being booked into a precinct Thursday.

“I’m being detained for an unknown reason.”

She added: “I have no idea why I’m being held … Don’t I have a right to know what the charge is for?”

Cops told her she was being held for “common assault”, the Daily Mail reported.

Hartin was arrested and charged with negligent manslaughter in the May 28, 2021 shooting death of her friend, Police Superintendent Henry Jemmott.

She has claimed the father of five’s death was an accident.

But cops may be the least of her worries.

Sources have told The Toronto Sun that the Ashcroft family are trying to put distance between the attractive Canadian and themselves.

Andrew’s father is billionaire Sir Michael Ashcroft, one of the country’s richest and most powerful men.

“All I did was try to collect my personal belongings and see my children,” she told the media outside the police precinct.

“I have obeyed every single court order. I’ve obeyed my curfew, I’ve been here every single day to check in — I’ve done absolutely nothing wrong here.”

Late Thursday, the Mail published an exclusive interview with Hartin who said Jemmott’s Glock went off as she was passing the gun back to him.

She revealed the beloved cop had saved her from being raped at a party.

“There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about Henry, he was my friend, he was a protector,” Hartin said.

“And I have to live with the fact that I had this horrible accident. I miss him. I feel for his family and his children,” she said, adding that the Ashcrofts ‘instructed’ her not to say that before.

“We were friends for three years. And he was a good man.”

She added: “It was an accident. I didn’t flee the scene. The first thing I did was call the police myself. Henry was a great man. He was protecting me.”

Now, she told the British tabloid she is “fighting for my life.”

“I’ve lost everything and the only thing I have left is my children,” she told the Mail.

We apologize, but this video has failed to load.

Hartin said she and Andrew Ashcroft did not have a loving relationship and instead stayed together for the sake of their children.

Now, Ashcroft appears to be trying to gain full custody.

“I would rather go back to prison than give up fighting to see them,” Hartin said.

“I will fight until I have no fight left in me.”
