The Most Devastating Breakups In 90 Day Fiance History

TLC's 90 Day Finacé and its subsequent spin-off shows have become insanely popular among reality TV viewers. The show is filled with both romance and drama, and viewers just can't get enough. For those who don't know, 90 Day Fiancé follows U.S. citizens who have fallen in love with people from other countries and want to get married. Nonresidents can live in the United States for 90 days, but must get married in those 90 days to obtain a K-1 visa and remain in the U.S. 

The show follows couples through the 90 days before their wedding, and spin-offs follow couples after their wedding, when they first meet, and even through the immigration process in other countries. And after eight seasons, each season still feels more dramatic than the last, and the ratings just keep climbing. 

Sadly, not every couple gets their "happily ever after." Many couples break up due to infidelity, financial troubles, or just the artificial nature of a 90-day romance. And while some couples have rollercoaster relationships that viewers know will end messily, even strong couples don't always work out. Keep reading to see the most devastating breakups in 90 Day Fiancé history.

Colt and Larissa from 90 Day Fiancé broke up after Larissa was arrested for domestic battery

90 Day Fiancé's Colt Johnson and Larissa Dos Santos Lima's tumultuous relationship began online on a dating website, until Larissa moved to Las Vegas from Brazil to be with Colt. Arguments started almost immediately after her move because of issues with Colt's mother, Debbie Johnson, who he lived with. Additionally, throughout their relationship Larissa accused Colt of flirting with other women.

Colt and Larissa married in June 2018, but filed for divorce in January 2019 after Larissa was arrested for domestic battery. Colt called the cops on Larissa twice, and Debbie called them a third time after Larissa and Colt got in a fight. The fight allegedly started after Larissa found Colt buying pornography, according to Entertainment Tonight. Photos of both Colt and Larissa with bloodied faces were posted online, and Larissa was arrested for domestic battery.

Colt told Entertainment Tonight in April he and Larissa hadn't spoken since their devastating breakup in May 2019. "The only thing I want is to be left alone by Larissa," Colt said.

But when Mohamed arrived in the United States, the couple found out they'd both misled each other about their personal lives: Danielle found out Mohamed didn't have a job lined up in the states like he said he did, and Mohamed discovered Danielle was in serious credit card debt.

Their relationship was rocky from the start, and ended in a devastating breakup. Danielle revealed to In Touch she caught Mohamed cheating on her with multiple women, and even moved to Miami with one of the women as soon as he got his green card. Danielle said she messaged some of the women on social media, and eventually showed up in Miami to confront Mohamed. In Miami, Danielle and Mohamed got in a fight outside of his apartment, which escalated until the police were called.

Molly thinks Luis 'used her' for a green card on 90 Day Fiancé

Molly Hopkins and Luis Mendez had a short-lived and troubled relationship on 90 Day Fiancé. A big source of tension for them was that Molly didn't like how Luis treated her children, and they got into frequent arguments about it. Molly filed for divorce just six months after their marriage, and Luis remarried just four months after their divorce was finalized.

Though Molly wished Luis "the best," she's since speculated he used her to get a green card and eventually remarry. "I'm pretty confident the girl was already here and from the Dominican [Republic] and the family already knew her," Molly revealed in an episode of 90 Day Fiancé (via In Touch)."I think there was probably an arrangement. I think he knew off the bat what he was going to do." 

Molly also said she felt used by Luis, and doesn't wish to keep in contact with him after their devastating breakup. "You should have come here on her money. Let her pay for you. Not me," she added.

The fallout was intense, and both Darcey and Jesse provided insight into their devastating breakup since it happened. Darcey said Jesse "played games" in their relationship and called him a "toxic" partner. Additionally, in an interview on Reality Life with Kate Casey, Jesse said he felt Darcey was "fake." "Darcey doesn't per se have bad intentions, but getting to know her more, you get to see that a lot of it is fake," he explained. "For me, when it comes to a relationship I don't care what you do in [the] entertainment industry as far as faking everything, but I expect you, if I fall in love with you, to be real with me." He added that he wasn't interested in falling for inauthentic people, and that he felt like he was living in "a fake reality."

The two have been on-again, off-again since, but Ashley said they were over "for good" after a devastating breakup in September. "Jay and I have made the decision to separate for good," Ashley wrote on Instagram (via People). "Sometimes when trust is broken, it just cannot be repaired."

So, in that regard, he wasn't the most faithful man."

Rosemarie had previously told Big Ed she wanted more children, in addition to her 4-year-old son, and it shocked her to hear the truth. Rosemarie added that finding out Big Ed lied about wanting kids was the final straw. "I'm disappointed because you always embarrassed me," she said. "I think [you] don't love me. I'm done." Rosemarie also said she was sick of Big Ed lying "again and again," and she was ending things. "I don't want [to] waste my time [with a] person who doesn't appreciate me," Rosemarie said, and walked away for good.
