The 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? stars Colt and Larissa are officially divorced, and after their third domestic abuse charge and arrest, Larissa went to trial...again. Larissa had problems her mother-in-law, Debbie, who Larissa believed to be meddling in Colt's marriage. Debbie was very vocal on the TLC show about her son's relationship, and to no surprise is speaking up again, this time through Instagram to tell the fans what to expect with Larissa's future as a U.S. citizen.
This volatile couple is no stranger to the law (and Colt's mother) being involved in their relationship, in season 4 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Larissa is fighting constantly with Colt and in one scene, Larissa even asked producers to interview her in their van, out of fear that Colt and Debbie might listen in, expressing concern that she was in danger and no longer felt safe in their house.
In preparation for Larissa's trial, Debbie replied to a fan's comment left on a photo of Colt back in May saying: “Everything takes time. There is still a Domestic Violence hearing next week and after that, she will be deported. It just takes time.” Larrisa seemed to be unphased by Debbie's deportation threat, as her lawyer responded: “Debbie’s statement is not true at this time.” Days later, on May 30th, Larissa had her trial and was able to negotiate a deal with the Judge - ending up being charged with disorderly conduct instead of her original domestic battery charge.
The relationship had not ended on good terms (by any definition) - and was punctuated by the couple's final fight (which became the source of Larissa's legal problems). During the altercation, Larissa allegedly punched Colt in the face, leaving him with a bloody mouth - when Colt called the police on Larissa and filed for divorce (with the help of mother Debbie who, of course, paid the court fee). It had been the third domestic violence charge filed against Larissa in the short seven-month long marriage.
Nevertheless, considering the judge showed leniency for Larissa's alleged crime, it seems that Debbie might not get the vindication she was hoping to see. According to the Immigration and Nationality Act (I.N.A.), any noncitizen convicted after September 30, 1996, of domestic violence is deportable; however, since Larissa's first two domestic violence cases were thrown out and the third was negotiated down to disorderly conduct (not domestic battery), it appears Larissa's citizenship is safe - and she is not in danger of being deported back to Brazil.
Since that time, Larissa has deleted all pictures of her life with Colt from Instagram, now only showing off pictures her and her new boyfriend 27-year-old Eric, who her followers think is a major upgrade from her ex-husband Colt. From Eric's Instagram, we can see the first photo he posted of Larissa was at her divorce celebration party in Las Vegas. “He makes me laugh,” she said. “He’s accomplished so much for being 27 years old only — and I can’t forget he’s a hunk!”
Larissa will have to keep her hands clean, of course, but with the legal drama are over, she can get back to time with Eric and Debbie can get back to mother-and-son date nights with Colt.
