The 33-year-old reality star filed a police report against Nichols for harassment on September 18, according to The Blast. The case is reportedly under investigation.
Dos Santos Lima hinted via her Instagram Story on Wednesday, September 25, that she filed the report with the police department. She allegedly received taunting text messages and phone calls after her breakup with Nichols.
“Larissa doesn’t want to speak about it anymore because she wants Eric to go away and doesn’t want to give him the fame he’s thirsty for,” a source tells Us Weekly exclusively. “Eric gave out her number to other women, and they were calling and texting and harassing her nonstop, so she changed her number last week.”
In a statement to Us, Nichols denies his ex’s claims.
“I’m not surprised my ex made up something to file a police report against me to get my attention. I went on about my own business leaving town, then received texts from her about a bunch of nonsense that is an essay long,” Nichols says before adding that he received a text from Dos Santos Lima’s “big bad pal Carmen,” who wrote a “petty breakup apology.”
He continued: “She’s the mastermind manipulator who filled Larissa head with confusion and suggestions of leaving me for men with money. That would be like taking dating advice from someone who jumped into a toxic marriage and never dated, unless this person knows about dating men with money on the side of her marriage. Police have not contacted me in any way, whatsoever, and I am not sweating any of this due to my track record of a clean record, stellar credit and buying a home on my own. Facts. The last time my ex and I spoke directly, in which to me responding to her, was the day before the breakup.”
The Brazil native announced the split on September 11 after less than a year of dating. “After 8 months of being Erickee’s [sic] girlfriend I have to tell my followers that we have decided to break up and go our separate way [sic],” she wrote on Instagram at the time. “There is no hard feelings or regrettes [sic], but I need to look in my own soul and focus on being the best Larissa I can be.”
She added: “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.”
The TV personality concluded on a positive note. “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 personal dreamees [sic] and goals I set to do,” she told her followers. “Thank you for all your love, strength and support to me always.”
Dos Santos Lima appeared on season 6 of 90 Day Fiancé with now-ex-husband Colt Johnson. The pair married in June 2018 and finalized their divorce in April.
Following her breakup with Nichols, the TLC star told Us of her dating prospects: “I’m done with men and men trying to exploit me.”
