“90 Day Fiancé” star Larissa Dos Santos Lima thought she found love with Eric Nichols following her split from ex-husband, Colt Johnson. However, after the Brazilian native announced her break up with her boyfriend, she was forced to defend their relationship.

Larissa and Colt finalized their divorce earlier this year, but the 33-year-old began dating Eric shortly after she moved out of Colt’s Las Vegas home. After almost a year of dating, Larissa announced their split on Instagram.

In the comment section of the post, some viewers accused the star of using Eric for his money, but Larissa insisted the two had a genuine relationship.

“So in other words, you milked him dry of cash, and you decided to move on because he couldn’t give you $1 million like Coltee?” an Instagram user wrote.

“Don’t make assumptions, I was always independent, and Eric never had this problem with me,” Larissa replied.

Another viewer went on to suggest Larissa dumped Eric over his lack of finances. “The reason of your breakup should be probably because Erickee got no money anymore,” the individual wrote.”

However, the “90 Day Fiancé” star fired back by revealing she supports herself. “I have money for myself, never borrow any coin,” she replied.

Larissa first announced her split with Eric on Wednesday in a lengthy Instagram post. “After 8 months of being Erickee’s girlfriend, I have to tell my followers that we have decided to break up and go our separate way,” she wrote.

“There is no hard feelings or regrettees, 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, but I know now I need to work on me and focus on my healing of my scars,” she added.

As of Thursday afternoon, Larissa has deleted photos of Eric from her Instagram account. However, the Las Vegas resident still has some photos of his ex-girlfriend on his social media page.
