’90 Day Fiancé’: Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s Ex Apologizes and Posts Pic of the Two Together, Fans Speculate
90 Day Fiancé star Larissa Dos Santos Lima always seems to be at the center of some kind of drama. Most recently, Lima claimed that Corey Rathgeber used her for attention after a night out in Las Vegas together. This was following her public social media breakup with ex-boyfriend Eric Nichols.
Now, in a surprising turn of events, it seems that Larissa Dos Santos Lima and Eric Nichols have managed to bury the hatchet and reunite as friends. And what’s even more shocking, Nichols is now apologizing for his behavior towards Lima following their split.
Larissa Dos Santos Lima broke up with him on Instagram
Earlier this year, Larissa Dos Santos Lima surprised fans when she dumped her then-boyfriend Eric Nichols via Instagram. According to Nichols, he didn’t find out that his relationship with the 90 Day Fiancé star was over until his own mother called and told him the news — which she’d gleaned from Instagram.
At the time of the breakup, Lima posted what she called a breakup note to Instagram. She wrote, “There is no hard feelings or regrettees [sic], but I need to look in my own soul and focus on being the best Larissa I can be. I try to heal one painful breakup by jumping in relationship with Erickee [sic] but I know now I need to work on me and focus on my healing of my scars.”
Lima continued, “I not sure what will come of the future but I am excited for it. I look forward to this time in my life as a reflection on my own personal dreamees [sic] and goals I set to do. Thank you for all your love, strength and support to me always.”
Nichols, who was taken aback, briefly changed his Instagram bio to read, “Dumpedbyagirlon9/11?Thru a post?My mother saw 2 calltotell me about?I WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER 2 BE ME & 2 die on my feet then live on my knees [sic].”
Eric Nichols says he’s sorry
After their breakup, things got hairy between the two. The 90 Day Fiancé star claimed her ex-boyfriend was harassing her after the breakup, and said she even filed a police report.
Lima told InTouch, “Unfortunately, it is true that I had to file a police report against Eric. The day after the breakup, I began receiving calls and messages from Eric and women in regards to Eric. Only a handful of people, such as family, business contacts, and personal friends knew this number. Eric knew it as well.”
Nichols also went over to Colt Johnson’s house, where he met Johnson’s mother, Debbie. The three took photos together and threw shade at Larissa Dos Santos Lima. Nichols says that he and Lima have since buried the hatchet, and that he now regrets this behavior.
Nichols posted a picture of himself in the car with Lima to Instagram, and captioned it, “I’m posting this to let everyone know that Larissa and I have managed to work things out and remain as friends. We’ve apologized to one another for the action we’ve taken towards one another in the public eye about our friends, family, and fans.”
He added, in part, “As of now, we have cleared the air and I want to specifically apologize for meeting with Colt & Debbie and posting photos. I acknowledge it was a low blow and kid like behavior on my behalf to meet with Colt/Debbie knowing the outcome would be hurting Larissa.”
Fans react to the Instagram post
Fans of 90 Day Fiancé were both surprised and pleased to see Larissa Dos Santos Lima burying the hatchet with anybody. The comments on Nichols’ Instagram post seem to reflect that.
One user wrote, “I’m proud of you! It takes a lot of courage for a person to admit to a mistake and apologize. So glad you and Larissa worked things out.”
Another fan added, “Yay! Just get back together, would yas?! And Larissa, don’t be so reactive this time! Keep working on YOU!”
It does seem that there is some speculation in the comments as to whether or not Lima and Nichols are more than just friends.
