She shared this message on her Instagram Stories:

"Ppl are so insensitive to my life. I'm a lover and will never say anything negative about him. My soul isn't built for negativity. I'll take a beating publicly. Ppl saying I cheated when believe me it wasn't like that. He was nowhere around. I cried oceans after him. I would do anything for him." 

"Ppl saying I'm a gold digger is inane. I don't care about money. I've had it my whole life."

Larsa also eluded to specific reasons for the divorce, pointing out that Scottie left her alone many she times when she needed him around.

"I spent my bday, New Year's Eve, times when I needed him alone. At some point, I decided I had to live my truth and here I am."

The official court documents cite "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. The last social media picture Larsa shared with Scottie in it was this group photo for Breast Cancer Awareness Month on Oct. 2. 

Despite the gold digger accusations, Larsa and Scottie have actually been married for 21 years and have four children together. Hollywood Life reports that this is the second time the pair had filed for divorce in two years. Three of their children are minors and Larsa is seeking joint legal and physical custody.
