A lot of fans had high hopes for Jess Caroline and Colt Johnson when they appeared on the fifth and most recent season of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? But unfortunately, it didn’t work out. After nonstop drama, the pair decided to end its relationship in the latest episode of the show.
Reflecting on their romance, Jess claimed in a new Instagram post that Johnson allegedly abused her and left “marks on [her] til this day.” The message prompted many supportive and emotional responses from fans who have followed their relationship thus far.
A brief timeline of Jess Caroline’s relationship with Colt Johnson
Jess began dating Colt after he split from his fellow 90 Day Fiancé co-star Larissa dos Santos Lima. It was revealed on the show that they met through an app and decided to enter a relationship sometime in 2019.
Early on, there seemed to be a lot of trust issues between them. Jess didn’t like how close he was with his friend Vanessa and Colt’s mom Debbie questioned Jess’s intentions in dating her son. However, their relationship continued, with the two even discussing settling down and having children.
But once Jess learned that Colt had been messaging other women and that Vanessa had secretly been living with him, she broke up with him. She cried as she got up to leave and walked out of the house.
“I’m done with Colt forever,” she said to the cameramen. “I do not want Colt in my life.”
Jess Caroline opens up about her relationship with Colt Johnson and accuses him of abuse
Jess accused Colt of being emotionally abusive in an Instagram post shared on Sept. 12.
She claimed he allegedly down-talked her, played “tricks” on her, and did several other things that hurt her feelings throughout their relationship. His alleged behavior lowered her self-esteem and made her depressed to the point where she “couldn’t recognize [herself] anymore,” she said.
“I lost my identity, cried a lot, was unhappy, and started to question whether I was crazy like he said so many times. Every day I went to sleep sad and woke up sad. He denied all of the lies and made me believe I was out of my mind … His demeanor was extremely passive aggressive and bipolar,” she wrote, before accusing him of leaking photos that made her lose a job.
“But I made it, girls!” she continued. “If you find yourself in this situation where you don’t feel loved and deeply appreciated, LEAVE HIS A**! You deserve SO MUCH more! Never let a man tell you who you are. The fight is big and the results are slow, but you will find happiness like I did. Nothing is worth your stress! Trust your girlfriends and never settle for a man that doesn’t make you feel like the best person alive.”
