90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After star Eric Nichols (Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s boyfriend) suffered a painful injury recently. What happened to the TLC celeb?

90 Day Fiance: Claws Come Out for Eric Nichols

90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After celeb Eric Nichols has some nasty marks on his face. But he didn’t get them from his girlfriend, Larissa.

Eric Nichols said he woke up to the sound of cat noises. And that a “fat white cat” jumped their fence. Meanwhile, Eric’s cat was in fight mode – and both cats got into it before Eric broke things up. After that, he scooped his cat up. And that turned out to be a bad idea for the 90 Day Fiance cast member.

90 Day Fiance: Eric’s Fur Baby Leaves a Mark

After scooping up his 90 Day Fiance fur baby, Eric Nichols said the feline ran up his chest and scratched his face. He said it’s a good thing his cat didn’t get his “eye socket”. Either way, he’s lucky – the scratch would’ve been a lot worse if his cat got him there. Larissa’s boyfriend pointed to his eye as he talked about what went down.

Eric Nichols and Larissa Dos Santos Lima adopted Mapa Franko Zaffino when they were in Las Vegas – before their move to Colorado. Larissa introduced the new member of their family. And she added that he makes their lives “happy” every day. Meanwhile, Mapa gave Eric a little something extra after he broke up the scuffle.

It’s likely 90 Day Fiance‘s Eric learns his lesson after this experience. And hopefully, he won’t have another close call with his eye the next time Mapa gets into a fight with a neighborhood cat.

Larissa Dos Santos Lima & Boyfriend Still Going Strong?

In the aftermath of TLC giving Larissa Dos Santos Lima the boot from 90 Day Fiance, some watchers wonder if her relationship with Eric is on the rocks, too. The pair recently moved to Colorado and ditched the Las Vegas desert for good. And it looked like the pair were ready to put their past drama behind them and begin a new life together.

Meanwhile, adding more fuel to the split chatter, Larissa Dos Santos Lima scrubbed Eric from her online profile and removed all pictures of him. Certainly, this may be an attention-grab from Larissa now that TLC has fired her. Larissa landed a magic show gig after TLC axed her.

But, when Eric talks about the cat encounter, you can hear Larissa’s voice in the background as he describes how he got the scratches on his face. So, despite the recent split speculation, it looks like the pair are still going strong.
