HOLLYWOOD—Whether scripted or not, those that watched “90 Day Fiancé” knew that the turbulent relationship between Larissa and Colt just wouldn’t last. As fans well know, this past weekend kicked off a rocky start for Larissa Christina Dos Santos Lima, who was released from the Clark County Detention Center after being arrested for alleged misdemeanor domestic battery.
On January 11, the same day she was arrested, Colt Johnson filed for divorce from his wife of just seven months. According to published reports, this is actually her third arrest, the other two arrests were dismissed. Larissa. who has an estimated 191k followers on Instagram, decided to go live after part II of the “90 Day Fiancé, Tell All,” this past Sunday. Larissa has a habit of posting pictures and IG stories, going public with them and than decides to delete them. Why, does she do that? She either thinks about it rationally and probably doesn’t like to read the comments. Many comments are directed to her in a negative way, meaning they don’t believe what she is saying.
She claimed she didn’t have medical insurance, than she said, the staff at the hospital made an error, and she did after all have medical insurance. She was asking on her GoFundMe account, for money to bail her out, medical and attorney’s fees, claiming she had three lawyers. She went on live, claiming that “haters,” reported her. Lima who seemed calm, while tearing up, asked for donations. With so many stories about people giving money for good causes on GoFundMe, the site takes reporting very seriously. How many times, were people scammed out of their monies donating to GoFundMe when everything was a lie. She asked for more money, yet this time she wanted to make sure the money would go to her and not be refunded, so she asked her fans to donate to PayPal, Venmo and Zelle. She was asking for $3,000.
Later on Monday, she issued another Instagram statement to fans, explaining that the reason her original GoFundMe campaign was shut down was because “I tried to raise money for my bail and it goes against their terms.” Lima assured donors would be refunded and confirmed her bail had already been paid by her friend and she’s secured an attorney for that case.
“I am creating a new campaign to help me with my new start and for my immigration and divorce fees,” she said. She also noted her Vimeo and PayPal accounts are “on hold.” I’m sure she has the monies now, since she has since stopped pleading for money. As for Johnson, he seemingly addressed his ex on what appears to be his new Instagram account.
“I don’t understand my soon to be ex wife. She comes to America with literally nothing. The suitcases she used for travel I provided for her. On her arrival I already had clothes waiting for her to wear and everything she needed to start a basic life in America. Over the course of months I continued to provide for her, gave her shelter, food, and supported her wants and dreams. When she wanted a dress or makeup I bought it for her. When she wanted to take ESL classes I found a class for her and drove her,” the post read. “When she wanted to go to a gym I took her to every gym in town and eventually she joined two gyms simultaneously.”
While many fans, wrote comments like: you can always dog sit, mow the lawn etc, to make money, she would either delete the comments or answer back in a very negative demeanor.
She would say, “I cannot work and for now just to have my friends help me with the situation, so I really need it,” she said, noting it upsets her to have to ask. “To come here to beg—it’s really sad, really sad for me.” Larissa also made allegations against TLC, claiming they fed her lines on the show to make her look a certain way.
“There’s a lot of things you guys don’t know,” her friend Danielle said in the Instagram Live, alleging that the show is scripted. “The show portrayed her in a way she is not.”
“She wants to say thank you so much to the people who are supporting her, supporting her situation, who understand her situation,” Danielle added. Yes, some fans sent her money, from $5 to $100, and they would use unusual names about (Coltee) Colt as she calls him. The reality star also confirmed a few months ago, that she did leave her children back in her native Brazil, she has a boy and a girl.
Rose’s Scoop: Another couple that won’t be celebrating Valentine’s Day from “90 Day Fiancé” is Jonathan Rivera and Fernanda Flores. I’m sure more couples will follow from Season 6.
