She can’t catch a break. Last week, 90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was arrested for the third time on domestic battery charges. Then, just hours after her arrest, Larissa’s estranged husband Colt Johnson filed for divorce. Now, she is currently being hospitalized for health issues amid all of the drama and on top of that, she is also facing financial struggles. Larissa was able to raise more than $3,000 on GoFundMe to help her pay her bail and legal fees, but she took to Instagram Live on Sunday, January 13, to reveal that the campaign was removed and the donations will be refunded because the account was considered fraudulent.

Larissa, 31, thought that the GoFundMe was taken down because her haters had reported the account as fraud and she tearfully begged for fans to resend their donations via Zelle. The following day, the Brazil native took to Instagram to share an update with fans and reveal the real reason why her original GoFundMe campaign had bee removed.
“GoFundMe sent me an email to me explaining why my campaign was shut down. The reason is because I tried to raise money for my bail and it goes against their terms. But it is ok because my friend paid my bail and I already got an attorney for this case. People will be refunded,” Larissa wrote. “I am creating a new campaign to help me with my new start and for my immigration and divorce fees. When the campaign is over, I will making [sic] a video to thank you and will mention everyone’s name unless you ask me not to do [so].”
Larissa’s new GoFundMe page is titled “Help Larissa Lima” and it is set at $5,000 goal. “90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Lima, came to the US under [the] K-1 visa with the intentions to build a family in America. However, the relationship did not work out, last week, her soon to be ex-husband filed for divorce and she has no financial support at this moment,” the description read. “Larissa has no family in the US and she is temporally living at her friend’s house right now. She can not work because she did not receive a work permit yet. Larissa will need financial support as soon as possible to be able to support herself while she is waiting for her work permit and to pay for her divorce and immigration attorneys fees.” As of publication, Larissa raised $280 out of the $5,000 goal.
