It is officially over. While we already knew 90 Day Fiance alum Larissa Dos Santos Lima had split from Eric Nichols, she has now confirmed this. This is the second time Larissa and Eric have split, but this time it’s for good.
90 Day Fiance alums Larissa and Eric are over
Larissa Dos Santos Lima made a post on Instagram Thursday to confirm her split from Eric Nichols. It seems that the break was amicable. Larissa wrote, “Since I started my presence on social media, I feel we have created a relationship of trust.”
She wrote that because of this, she feels responsible to communicate with her fans when something important happens in her life. Lima said she is no longer in a relationship, as they have decided to follow separate paths for now. She said they are “different people who have grown apart, seeking development and happiness.”
The Brazilian beauty then said she hopes her fans will support of choice to split from Eric. Larissa wrote that this is a new chapter in her life and she is excited to see what happens next.
Fans suspected the break-up
Some weeks back, eagle-eyed 90 Day Fiance fans noticed that Larissa had unfollowed Eric on Instagram. They also noted she had deleted all of the images of them together. Nichols himself confirmed the rumors after sharing a shirtless image of himself to promote his OnlyFans. He captioned the image, “Single N red-e 2 mingle,”
Larissa and Eric have had their problems while on the TLC reality show. They started dating after her divorce from her former husband and co-star Colt Johnson. Us Weekly quotes Lima saying last year that she was going to stay single. When she first broke up with Eric, she said, “I’m done with men and men trying to exploit me.”
However, Larissa did make up with Nichols and this led to them moving from Las Vegas to Colorado. She moved in with Eric and her mother, Debbie. At the time, fans found this ironic, as Colt famously has a mother called Debbie who interfered with their relationship. However, it seemed the two Debbies were different and Lima did get on with Eric’s mom.
Around that time, Larissa was arrested and taken into custody by Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers. Lima’s rep told TMZ at that time that lawyers were working on her release and were clearing up the misunderstanding. She was eventually released and returned to Colorado. It is unknown where Larissa is currently staying, having left the Nichols household. No doubt, more details will be revealed in due course.
In the meantime, fans can keep entertained by watching 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way. The TLC reality show airs on Sundays at 8 pm ET.
