Larissa Dos Santos Lima Speaks Out: Did She Really Try to Kill Herself?
Larissa Dos Santos Lima has an important message for her friends and followers.
Earlier this month, the 90 Day Fiance star got into a physical altercation with her husband, Colt Johnson, which concluded with Las Vegas police officers showing jup and arresting Larissa for domestic battery.
The reality star was officially charged just a few days ago.
The thing is, Larissa was also arrested for assault back in November, so those who had been tracking her and Colt’s troubled marriage were not all that stunned by this new development.
They were, however, taken aback by a major detail Colt allegedly shared with the cops:
According to TMZ insiders, Johnson told authorities on the night of his confrontation with Larissa that his wife downed half a bottle of antidepressants and tried to kill herself.
Crazy and awful, right?
We’ve documented Colt’s claims of this nature below:
On Monday night, however, Larissa addressed this very serious allegation in public for the first time.
Did she really try to end her own life in the middle of her fight with Colt?
“Dear followers, friends and family, I would like to clarify that the rumors about drug abuse or suicide attempts are not true,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories yesterday, adding for emphasis:
“I love for [sic] my life so much that I would never try to do something like this.”
“These allegations are completely false and I have all my medical records to prove it,” Dos Santos Lima added.
To be clear, for whatever it’s worth, Johnson is not on the record with any quotes about Larissa’s supposed suicide attempt.
We are just going off what TMZ reported he told the police.
In her Instagram statement, Larissa acknowledged her ongoing struggle and concluded:
“I am going through a difficult moment in my life and at this moment I would like to ask people to respect and avoid talking about things that are not real.
“I will make a video to talk about everything on my right time.”
Johnson, meanwhile, filed for divorce within hours of Larissa getting arrested.
He shared an Instagram photo of all his estranged wife’s belongings packed away and railed against how he paid for all her stuff and supported all her dreams in the wake of their split.
But more recently he had simply posted messages of pretty scenery and made it clear he’s happy to be done with her.
“I once was lost but now am found” and “I can see clearly now,” Johnson said on social media over the past few days.
The criminal complaint, which was filed in Las Vegas last Wednesday, stated that Dos Santos Lima “did willfully and unlawfully use force or violence against or upon the person of her spouse.”
Dos Santos Lima shared numerous photos and videos on Instagram after her argument with Colt, revealing a bloodied face and claiming Johnson called the cops on her as the two were going back and forth.
“I just scratched him because he was hurting me,” she said in one video.
However, police determined that Larissa’s wounds were actually self-inflicted — but that she was the one responsible for Johnson’s bloody lip.
