Reality star Larissa Dos Santos Lima is scheduled to appear in Las Vegas court on April 4, and the judge presiding over her domestic violence trial has now reportedly revoked media access — meaning it won’t be filmed for the spinoff, 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? Dos Santos Lima will be responding to charges that she allegedly assaulted her estranged husband, Colt Johnson.
The judge initially granted a motion filed by Sharp Entertainment to film the upcoming court proceedings, but ultimately decided to switch gears, according to The Blast.
As we previously reported, Dos Santos Lima, 32, was charged with misdemeanor domestic violence back in January 2019. This news came less than a week after the TLC alum allegedly attacked Johnson, 33, at their home. According to the documents filed in Las Vegas on January 16, Dos Santos Lima “did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse.” She was placed under arrest on January 11, following their tense dispute.
Johnson filed for divorce from his wife just hours after she was arrested for the third time on domestic violence charges. Shortly after turning in the paperwork, he took to social media with a statement on January 12.
“I don’t understand my soon to be ex wife,” he wrote. “She comes to America with literally nothing. The suitcases she used for travel I provided for her. On her arrival I already had clothes waiting for her to wear and everything she needed to start a basic life in America. Over the course of months I continued to provide for her, gave her shelter, food, and supported her wants and dreams.”

I don’t understand my soon to be ex wife. She comes to America with literally nothing. The suitcases she used for travel I provided for her. On her arrival I already had clothes waiting for her to wear and everything she needed to start a basic life in America. Over the course of months I continued to provide for her, gave her shelter, food, and supported her wants and dreams. When she wanted a dress or makeup I bought it for her. When she wanted to take ESL classes I found a class for her and drove her. When she wanted to go to a gym I took her to every gym in town and eventually she joined two gyms simultaneously. When she needed a doctor, lawyer, therapist I would always do what I could for her. My sole mission since her arrival was to see that she was happy, taken care for and nurtured. When she wanted to start her business I gave her a thousand dollars just to start. Every time she was in trouble, I was there.
On the other hand, it appears Dos Santos Lima is ready to share her side of the story. “The truth will come out,” she wrote via Instagram Stories after being released on bond. “I’m in peace.”
The exes have faced no shortage of drama over the course of their tumultuous marriage, calling it quits just seven months after they tied the knot. While Johnson is not seeking spousal support, Dos Santos Lima is hoping for $1,000 a month from her estranged husband. She also reportedly asked to split their household furnishings 50/50 as well as their joint bank accounts.
