Telling the truth. 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star Larissa Dos Santos Lima slammed trolls who claimed she lied about her September 19 arrest by the United States Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
“People are taking advantage of my situation posting false information and making speculations. Since day one, my name has been on the blast. Daily, I receive threats of all kinds, even rape and death, written in words that would make any sane person go insane,” Larissa, 34, wrote via Instagram on Tuesday, September 22. “It appears to have become an obsession and even an occupation for some people to constantly post about me in the most degrading and abusive ways.”
She claimed the comments and messages she’s gotten online in the days following her arrest from social media users who accused her of lying about the arrest for clout or publicity have become “abusive.” She said she could try to fight back by getting a restraining order against the trolls.
But the Brazilian native went on to explain she knows several people who have also dealt with extreme hate online from viewers of the hit reality TV series, and they give her “strength.” She also said she has “endless support” from her family, friends and fans. “It is this support that keeps me moving forward,” she added.
“I want to explain everything that has happened in the recent [sic], and in my past, but I’m struggling to come up with the right words to type that give my feelings justice,” she continued, revealing fans will learn the full story once she launches her YouTube channel on September 30. “With my YouTube, I will be able to tell my story and shed light for the immigration process I am experiencing.”
As In Touch previously reported, Larissa was taken into ICE custody on Saturday as she was preparing to move from Las Vegas to Colorado Springs with boyfriend Eric Nichols, 28. She was released hours later.
“I can confirm Larissa was taken into custody from ICE early this morning just as she was getting into a U-Haul truck with her boyfriend while preparing to move to Colorado for a fresh new start,” her rep told In Touch via a statement at the time. “Larissa’s legal team is working meticulously on her release and clearing up this misunderstanding.”
