’90 Day Fiancé’ Star Larissa Lima Says Ex Colt Johnson Was So Sheltered, He Didn’t Learn to Drive Until He Was 25
Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s relationship with her ex-husband Colt Johnson isn’t the best. But the former 90 Day Fiancé star doesn’t blame him for all the issues they had. In a recent interview, Larissa suggested that Colt’s behavior may stem from the fact that he lived a very sheltered life before meeting her.
The couple was introduced on season 6 of ’90 Day Fiancé’
Viewers first met Larissa and Colt on season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé. Colt, who was 33 at the time, admitted that he had terrible luck with women in America.
“After having struck out a few times online with American girls, I thought maybe I could search outside the country, maybe find a girl, and then I met Larissa,” Colt said on his debut episode. “I had sent Larissa a message, and to my surprise, she actually responded, and we started talking. It wasn’t long before I decided I really wanted to meet her in person.”
The couple met up in Cancun, Mexico, and within five days of their vacation, Colt proposed. He applied for Larissa’s K-1 visa and eventually married her in his hometown of Las Vegas.
Their marriage was messy
Fans watched Larissa and Colt’s marriage drama unfold over two seasons of 90 Day Fiancé. The couple fought constantly. And Colt’s mother, Debbie Johnson, would often join in with her own opinions.
By the end of their marriage, Colt had Larissa arrested three times for domestic assault. She served community service time to lessen the charges, but their union ultimately ended in divorce.
Viewers watched Colt ruin another relationship on this past season of Happily Ever After. He began dating Brazilian nanny Jess Caroline at the beginning of the season. But by the finale, she dumped him as a result of his lies.
Most of Colt’s lies were about his relationship with other women. He hid his secret affair with Vanessa Guerra from Jess, despite her suspicions. And he also lied to her about the numerous women he contacted and sent nude photos to online.
Larissa says Colt’s behavior is a result of his sheltered life
In a recent chat with 90 Day Fiancé blogger John Yates, Larissa talked about Colt’s recent behavior with Jess. When Yates asked her if she felt vindicated, the reality star said she didn’t want to see her ex in a bad light despite their differences.
Larissa also addressed Colt’s interest in talking to women online. She said that a lot of his behavior was a result of his sheltered life.
“If the show showed the true story of Colt and Debbie, people would understand better,” Larissa explained. “Colt was sheltered. Colt learned how to drive at 25-years-old, because his mother took him [sic] from work, from school.”
She noted that after living such a sheltered life, Colt was thrust into the spotlight when he joined 90 Day Fiancé. His fame brought him attention from all kinds of women, and Larissa thinks it was this sudden exposure that made him act out.
“Can you imagine for a guy that was raised this way?” she added. “It’s because people do not know that.”
