“I don’t care where she ends up, it could be the U.S., Mars or Brazil, I just don’t want to be responsible for her,” Colt said. “So, I did my only thing that I had to do, was cancel her affidavit of support. If she could try to get a green card or visa any way she wants, she can stay in America for the rest of her life, I don’t care. I just don’t want to be the one that has to answer or pick up the phone when she needs it.”
Colt also suggested that he truly loved Larissa when they were together. But he says now that they’re divorced, he’s moved on completely.
“There’s nothing that ties me to her outside of this TV show,” he said. “I was only married to her for six months. I have more memories from watching television of us together than I do us of not being on television.”
