90-DAY FIANCE’S LARISSA DOS SANTOS LIMA PLEADS FOR MONEY: Amid her split from Colt Johnson, Larissa Dos Santos Lima took to Instagram to ask fans for help. Lima was released from the Clark County Detention Center after being arrested on charges of domestic battery over the weekend; after her arrest, Johnson filed for divorce. On Sunday, Lima told her followers on Instagram that a GoFundMe page she had originally set up and had been taken down and reported. She continued, asking for new donations to hire lawyers because she can’t legally work in the U.S. "It's important to me. The immigration attorney, the divorce attorney and the criminal attorney. The kind of attorney I have to talk to about my case," she said on Instagram. "I not feel happy about it, I not feel proud about it, but it's something that I really need," she said, and added that "To come here to beg—it's really sad, really sad for me." Lima also accused TLC of making her say things that would make her look bad on 90-Day Fiance. "There's a lot of things you guys don't know," her friend Danielle said in the Instagram Live, alleging that the show is scripted. "The show portrayed her in a way she is not."
