What happened with Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima? The 90 Day Fiancé couple’s relationship issues quickly turned into legal issues when a very public fight occurred between Colt and Larissa on Saturday, Nov. 10, and it ultimately led to Larissa being arrested on domestic battery charges. But now that it seems like things between Colt and Larissa have calmed down a bit, fans are wondering what will happen next — and their fellow 90 Day Fiancé franchise star Jesse Meester shared a sweet message of support for Larissa exclusively with In Touch.
According to the Las Vegas Justice Court docket obtained by In Touch, Larissa was arrested and detained on one count of misdemeanor domestic battery on Nov. 10, and her bail was set at $3,000. But she appeared in court on Sunday, Nov. 11, and her bail was reduced to $1,000. Probable cause was found in the case, and Larissa was released that same day. The Clark County District Attorney’s Office still has to review the case to find out if there is enough evidence to officially charge Larissa with the alleged domestic battery. Larissa’s next court date was originally set for Tuesday, Nov. 13, but it has since been pushed back to Dec. 11, 2018.
Larissa, 31, documented the moments leading up to her arrest on her Instagram story. In a series of selfie videos, Larissa revealed that her fight with Colt, 33, started when she confronted her husband for hiding their relationship on social media. Larissa claimed that Colt ordered her not to share photos of or with him on social media, as to make it seem like they were not together so that they could keep their storyline a mystery on 90 Day Fiancé.
But at one point, Colt took Larissa’s phone from her and she used the fields in her Instagram bio to send out a plea for help. Since the Brazilian beauty is in the United States alone without close friends or family, tons of her concerned fans and 90 Day Fiancé co-stars reached out to help — including 90 Day Fiancé: Before the 90 Days star Jesse. Jesse immediately got in contact with Larissa’s loved ones, and he shared a sweet message to Larissa exclusively with In Touch.
Jesse revealed he had been in contact with Larissa’s friend to see what he can do to help, and he even offered to help Larissa’s friend post bond. He is still willing to pay for Larissa’s flight back home or for a hotel so she has a place to stay, if she needs.
“It can create the most traumatizing and helpless feeling being alone in a foreign country in such a situation,” Jesse told In Touch. “From the moment she screamed for help on social media, my heart cried and knew I had to do something. When any woman screams for help like that and shares it on her profile, which are signs of abuse, anyone who witnesses that has a moral responsibility to do something.”
But even though Larissa has since posted bail via a bail bondsman and is currently out of jail, her legal troubles are far from over. She’ll be due back in court on Dec. 11, and if she is charged and convicted on the alleged domestic battery charges, the status of her green card and her future in the United States would be at jeopardy.
