'90 Day Fiance' star Larissa Dos Santos Lima charged with domestic battery after altercation with estranged husband
'90 Day Fiance' star Larissa Dos Santos Lima was charged with domestic battery on Wednesday following a criminal complaint that claimed that she "willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse."
The charges were laid around a week ago in Las Vegas after Lima was arrested following a fight with her estranged husband, Colt Johnson, at their home.
Johnson filed for divorce last Friday, hours after Lima's arrest. Both Lima and Johnson were active on social media before she was taken into custody last Friday, sharing photos of their respective injuries that they alleged the other had inflicted on them.
'90 Day Fiance' blogger John Yates documented the pair's back-and-forth on social media, including photos Lima shared of her bloodied and lacerated face.
In a text message conversation with Yates, Lima claimed that she started fighting with Johnson after she discovered him buying pornography, She also accused Johnson of being a pedophile. Johnson on his end put a snap of his injuries which included a bloodied mouth.
Lima started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for her lawyer and getting bail after the incident. "Thank you all who donated on my go fund me campaign. I raised the money I need! When I feel better I will make a video to thank you and I will mention every single donor," she wrote on Instagram on Saturday, sharing that she had a court date due on February 12.
However, shortly after their physical altercation went public, Lima made a video where she claimed GoFundMe shut down her campaign. Thanking her fans and followers, the TLC star announced she would not be receiving the money and the GoFundMe donors would receive a refund.
It is not clear why her fundraiser would have been removed from the crowd-sourcing website.
Johnson and Dos Santos Lima married last June after meeting on an online dating website. He proposed after a total of 11 days together, after which she moved to Las Vegas to be with him. Their relationship was documented on season six of '90 Day Fiance'.
