Colt Johnson: 90 Day Fiance MADE Me Cheat on Larissa!

by at .  Updated at .

Last week, one of 90 Day Fiance's most controversial couples had a total meltdown after Larissa exposed Colt's cheating.

Fans lost their minds, and some even went too far by bombarding his alleged Instagram mistress with death threats.

Now, Colt is addressing the situation ... and claiming that he just let "fame" get to his head.

Colt Johnson is responding to his cheating scandal with a lengthy Instagram post.

"I have received a lot of direct messages," Colt writes beside a video of President Bill Clinton's 1998 confession to cheating.

Colt acknowledges that there have been "a lot of things said about what happened."

In other words, 90 Day Fiance fans are calling him out for making Larissa look crazy on 90 Day Fiance and then cheating on her.

"I would like to say yes I am human," Colt writes. "And I have faults."


"I most definitely made mistakes," Colt admits.

"But," he continues. "My relationship with Larissa is more than what you see on TV."

That much, fans had assumed. 90 Day Fiance only has so much time per episode, and editors pick a narrative and go with it.

Colt claims: "We are like any couple in the world with it’s ups and downs."

For the record, if you are in a relationship likes theirs, or if your partner is like either of them, please break up immediately. That is toxic.

"We also have the fortunate misfortune of also exposing our selves for millions of people to dissect, diagnose, and discuss," Colt says.

Fortunate misfortune really hits the nail on the head when it comes to this particular reality series.

"Yes, I have received massive amounts of attention from fans," Colt admits.

For the record, the attention he received from fans was only the start of the problem.

Colt continues, acknowledging that "especially women" reached out to him after he rose to fame.

(We can't tell you exactly why some women felt compelled to message him -- it's probably a mix of factors, including his relative "fame" and accessibility)

"These things mixed with a relationship that has its problems makes for a dangerous scenario," Colt admits.

For the record, this is not universal. Plenty of 90 Day Fiance couples receive attention but it isn't usually a problem.

Colt confesses: "I crossed the line between fan and fandom."

That's a hell of a line, though we're not sure that it applies.

"The reality sometimes is lost," Colt says.

"And," colt writes. "This is something I have to handle in private."

"In the past Larissa and I always tried to make it up," he continues. "And now we will talk about our futures."

"I am taking the responsibility for the things I did," Colt says.

"And," he concludes. "For the people that suffered."

Remember, it's not only Larissa who has suffered for this.

At least one of the women with whom he cheated -- to whom he allegedly told lies to convince her that he was separated -- received death threats.

There's also Colt's mom, Deb, who deserves better than this scandal.

In short, Colt is claiming that he cheating on Larissa because he was swept up in his "fame."

It was Larissa who exposed Colt's Instagram affair, sharing screenshots of his flirting.

She shared that she was sent a message that Colt was "sending d–k pics to other women just so you know."

"He’s cheating on you and that sucks," the woman reported to Larissa.

Larissa's behavior on television and in real life -- with her two domestic battery arrests -- had made fans less than sympathetic towards her.

But the evidence that she presented, now with Colt's admission, makes it clear that she wasn't as "crazy" as Colt once wanted viewers to believe.
