Seven months after secretly tying the knotColt Johnson has filed for divorce from Larissa Dos Santos Lima

According to Clark County court records, the 90 Day Fiancé star filed a complaint in Nevada on Friday for divorce without children against Lima, as well as an affidavit of resident witness and a request for issuance of joint preliminary injunction. Johnson's mom Debra Johnson paid $299 for the divorce filing. 

It's been a rocky road for the couple, who married on June 24. Lima was arrested for alleged domestic battery in November and publicly accused Johnson of cheating on her the following month. That same month, the Clark County District Attorney dismissed the domestic battery case.

On Saturday, Johnson posted a lengthy statement on social media. He posted a picture of boxes and trash bags piled into the corner of a room and addressed the situation with his "soon to be ex wife."

"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," it began. "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."

Johnson then went on to list the things he gave her when she allegedly asked for them. He continued, "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."

He concluded the note by saying his "sole mission" in their marriage and relationship was to "see that she was happy, taken care for and nurtured." 

Johnson added, "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."

Larissa has since started a GoFundMe page to help "with her new start." She explained in her caption that the funds would purportedly used for legal fees, "for my divorce and for my new start."

She wrote in the caption, "Thank you again for help me to live [sic] this abusive marriage!"

"I would like to say yes I am human and I have faults," Johnson responded to the prior cheating allegations in a statement on social media. "I most definitely made mistakes but my relationship with Larissa is more than what you see on TV...We are like any couple in the world with it's ups and downs. We also have the fortunate misfortune of also exposing our selves for millions of people to dissect, diagnose and discuss."

Johnson noted he "received massive amounts of attention from fans, especially women."

As he continued, "These things mixed with a relationship that has its problems makes for a dangerous scenario. I crossed the line between fan and fandom," he conceded. "The reality sometimes is lost and this is something I have to handle in private."

Colt concluded, "In the past Larissa and I always tried to make it up and now we will talk about our futures. I am taking the responsibility for the things I did and for the people that suffered."
