’90 Day Fiancé’: What Happened to Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s Instagram?
90 Day Fiancé stars Larissa Dos Santos Lima and Colt Johnson had one of the most tumultuous relationships in recent history on the show. The two split up after several incidents of domestic violence on Lima’s part, though they both seem to have found love again after their split on the show.
However, Lima has recently opened up about her battle with depression after her first arrest, detailing how anxiety and depression made her life on the show that much more challenging. Now, fans will notice Lima’s Instagram is looking particularly barren — could it have something to do with her recent revelation?
A history of domestic violence
Larissa Dos Santos Lima has been arrested as recently as this year for domestic violence charges against Colt Johnson. In January 2019, Lima was booked for misdemeanor domestic violence in Nevada after a physical altercation with Johnson.
Jay Rivera of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said of the event, “[Colt] had a swollen lip, and his gums and teeth were bloodied.” Rivera made it clear that Lima was the aggressor in this conflict.
Lima herself was covered in scratches, however, it was determined that they were self-inflicted; Colt Johnson bites his nails down low enough that he’s physically incapable of breaking the skin by scratching.
Lima has also been arrested twice in 2018 for domestic violence — it’s clear that she has a history of resorting to physical abuse.
Opening up about depression and anxiety
According to the 90 Day Fiancé star, her battle with depression and anxiety began after her arrest in 2018.
The Blast reports that Lima wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post, “I was devastated, emotionally exhausted, and my entire body ached from depression.”
Lima went on to add, “Sometimes, I was filmed while being on pain killers. I couldn’t move, do basic activities, or take care of myself.”
However, it also seems as if Lima is trying to view the ups and downs from a constructive viewpoint. “I now see that my being [arrested] was a blessing, as l have the knowledge now to give back in a way that would not [have] been possible if it didn’t happen to me,” she wrote.
Lima’s new boyfriend
Larissa Dos Santos Lima has also found love again after Colt Johnson. This time, she’s dating a man named Eric Nichols.
Lima told Us Weekly, “We met on Tinder. He never watched the show… I just wanted company… Right now, I don’t rush anything. I don’t want to make plans. I’m enjoying myself and we are serious, of course… I feel really comfortable with him.”
Some 90 Day Fiancé fans might have noticed that Lima’s Instagram has been depopulated in recent days. It’s somewhat alarming to see a reality star eliminate the majority of their social media presence rapidly.
It could be that Lima is simply trying to reduce her presence in the public eye, especially after opening up about her battle with depression and anxiety. She has previously eliminated pictures of her new boyfriend as well, possibly to help protect his privacy — it could be the case that, as her life progresses away from 90 Day Fiancé, Lima is trying to establish a vein of normalcy.
Alternatively, perhaps Lima is simply reducing her social media presence as a part of her focus on herself during her emotional and mental health healing process.
