Fans watched as 90 Day Fiancé stars Colt Johnson and Chantel Everett went at it backstageduring the first part of the tell-all special, but as it turns out, there was even more drama that we didn’t see. Though Pedro Jimeno got involved in the altercation when he told Colt off for yelling at his wife, it turns out the two men also “almost” brought things to blows. A source who saw the whole thing go down chatted with In Touch and spilled all the exclusive details. Check out the gallery below to find out what really happened behind the scenes.
Though fans seemed to see Chantel, 27, instigating an argument with Colt, 34, a source who was on set with the stars reports that it was actually the other way around.

According to the insider, it was actually Colt who’d been egging his costars on all day, which makes sense considering what Nicole Nafziger had to say about the star’s fight with Chantel.

While chatting with fans in the comments section of one of her posts about what had gone down, she shared some off-screen insight into the behind-the-scenes fight. “He was being a jerk before we all sat down,” she said.

Stirring the Pot
“He was asking each couple a rude question,” Nicole, 25, continued. “Like he asked me if my relationship was even real? Is that really the first thing you ask someone?”

“He wasn’t very nice to everyone,” she told fans. “He came on defense and offense. He was rude.” As for Chantel taking the bait, the blonde cutie defended her costar.

Standing Her Ground
“She [had] a reason to snap at him,” Nicole said simply. As it turns out, Chantel wasn’t the only one who “snapped” at Colt — and she wasn’t the only one that he gave a reason to do so.

Taking the Stage
Once filming for the tell-all actually started, Ashley Martson also seemed to have beef with Colt and was irritated to find herself sitting next to him. A source explained to In Touch that the reason Ashley reacted that way is because the Las Vegas native had been picking a fight with her, too.

“He went at her backstage even though it wasn’t seen,” the source told In Touch. “He asked Ashley if she had scammed anyone lately and called her ‘Trashley.'”

Ashley, 33, wasn’t about to just sit there and take it. “They got into it, and it actually was more explosive than the fight they showed with Chantel, as Ashley was yelling at him much louder than Chantel yelled at him,” the source explained.

But the tension followed them onstage, and Ashley didn’t hold back. “When she got sat next to him, she was like, ‘Oh for f–k’s sake, seriously?’” the insider spilled. “They also didn’t show that.”

That wasn’t all. Pedro and Colt found themselves butting heads after the Dominican asked what happened with his ex, Larissa Dos Santos Lima, and why they’d gotten a divorce. But tensions rose a second time in a moment that didn’t make the cut for the episode.

Though fans may have suspected that Pedro had something to do with ratcheting up the first fight, the source says that the second fight was all the American. “There was a whole other argument not shown between Colt and Pedro. Colt was starting with him and Pedro almost hit him,” the source exclusively revealed.

“Colt kept saying to Pedro, ‘Come at me, come on tough guy,'” the insider told In Touch. “They were arguing up to the second they came out on set. It was quite an explosive day and, for some reason, Colt started with everyone individually even though no one was starting with him.”

When In Touch reached out to Colt for comment, he agreed to clear up the claims. Though he didn’t weigh in on the report that his fight with Pedro had nearly turned physical, he admitted he did have tension with several cast members.

“Yes, I can exclusively confirm to you that I did indeed call Ashley ‘Trashley,'” he told In Touch. As for a message to fans, he’s got one of those, too. “Keep watching.”
