They’ve formed an unlikely alliance! It looks like 90 Day Fiancé star Colt Johnson has a new friend … and it’s none other than his ex-wife Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s former flame, Eric Nichols. The TLC alum invited Eric into his Las Vegas home shared with his mother, Debbie Johnson, on Tuesday, September 17, and the group seemed to be having a ball.
“Guess who’s coming to dinner? My new BFF Eric (with a C),” Colt, 34, captioned the surprising new photos he posted on Instagram, which have since been deleted. “Turns out we have a lot in common. It’s great learning more and more things.”
On the other hand, Eric did end up keeping the photos from their fun-filled night on his Instagram page, showing him and Colt beaming (and embracing) while spending time with Debbie. In one of the snaps, Eric can be seen checking out Debbie’s famous slot machine — which fans know was a source of contention in Colt’s relationship with Larissa.
“Had an eventful evening with some new friends indeed! Thanks for having me as a guest in your lovely home,” Larissa’s ex Eric wrote alongside the montage of pics. “I appreciate your hospitality and enjoyed talking with you! The end.”
Of course, fans were having a complete field day in the comment section of Eric’s post, with many sounding off about how shocked they were. “This is the best thing I’ve seen all day. This is the level of pettiness I want to achieve,” one wrote. “Perfect reunion ya’ll belong together 😅😅😅😅 Thank God Larissa is above and beyond all this trash,” another added.
On September 11, Larissa, 33, announced that she and Eric had broken up after an eight month whirlwind romance. “There is no hard feelings or [regrets], but I need to look in my own soul and focus on being the best Larissa I can be,” the reality star explained. Eric later expressed how blown away he was, claiming he actually heard about their split through Instagram like everyone else.
Meanwhile, back in April, Larissa and Colt finalized their divorce. In a statement shared with In Touch exclusively on September 13, the Brazilian bombshell gave an update about their dynamic. “Since my separation from Colt, he has occasionally reached out to me, sometimes in kindness, and other times in anger,” the reality star wrote. “It is unfortunate, because I thought when he reached out to me two days ago [September 11], we were going to be amicable to one another. He texted me, wished me well, and followed me.”
“I forgave him for the past angry messages he sent me,” she continued. “It is unfortunate that it has become like this.”
