The Real Reason Colt And Larissa From 90 Day Fiance Got Divorced

Relationships can be complicated, but when you see the couples on "90 Day Fiance," complicated sometimes isn't the half of it. Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima provided one of the most turbulent and chaotic relationships in the reality show's history. Near constant bickering, bouts of violence, family issues, and alleged infidelity all played a part in the chaos that was their relationship. 

The couple originally met face-to-face in Cancun, Mexico after meeting online and talking for a while, according to Screen Rant. During the five-day trip, Colt was apparently so taken with Larissa that he proposed before the trip ended. The unfortunately volatile couple made their debut on Season 6 of "90 Day Fiance," and as you can guess, things didn't get off to the best start. 

Anyone who's seen Colt in action knows that his relationship with his mother, Debbie, borders on absurd, to say the least. He characterizes the typical "mama's boy" as he lived with her, and his mother was obsessed with his personal life in a way that was creepy, to put it mildly. So, following their 2018 marriage, Larissa had some uncomfortable encounters with both Debbie and Colt's cousin, John, due to the hastiness of their wedding and how that whole situation went down. 

Larissa was charged with assaulting Colt

Fighting with Colt Johnson's family wasn't the only issue Larissa Dos Santos Lima dealt with in her short marriage to the "90 Day Fiance" star. Their explosive fights and arguments led to three domestic violence arrests as well, according to Heavy. Heavy reported that Larissa was arrested on two separate occasions for domestic violence in 2018, but the charges were dropped. The third arrest came in January of 2019, according to Us Weekly, and Larissa was eventually charged with misdemeanor domestic violence. 

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Jay Rivera noted that "he [Colt] had a swollen lip and his gums and teeth were bloodied." The police department determined that Larissa "was the aggressor in this case." The criminal complaint stated that Larissa "did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse," which took place at Colt's house.

ScreenRant reports that after the third altercation in 2019, Colt filed for divorce a few days later. Per Screenrant, "A friend of Larissa's paid the $3,000 bail and Larissa then stayed at her friend's house" instead of going home. Seven months of chaotic marriage and it was over. Even if things were stressful with outside influences from Colt's family adding to the pressure of their relationship, obviously, things got extremely ugly. Per ScreenRant, there were accusations of infidelity from Larissa, phone service being shut off by Colt, and other messy moments, though the violence aspect is just unspeakable.

All's well that ends well

Thankfully, Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima seemed to have left their troubled pasts behind them. According to Screen Rant, in 2020, the Brazillian TV figure claimed to be making $40,000 a month on OnlyFans. So clearly she is finding fulfillment in creating a life for herself outside the "90 Day Fiance" franchise. 

Meanwhile, Colt has moved on with Vanessa Guerra. Like all of Colt's relationships, this one moved fast as well and without letting anyone in on the secret. Colt and Vanessa tied the knot in an intimate elopement that even his mother, Debbie, didn't know about until the "90 Day Fiance" Tell-All. According to Us Weekly, Debbie gave her "daughter" a hug and called her son an, "assh***" (jokingly) for not clueing her into their big news earlier, but it seems that all's well that ends well for both parties. Colt posted that he married Vanessa in May of this year and he seems to be in a much better place with much more solid and safe footing.
