"90 Day Fiancé" star Larissa Lima's stay in the United States could very well be coming to an end.
On Sept. 19, the reality TV star was taken into ICE custody in Las Vegas. Larissa was released several hours later, and she said she was "good to go" on social media. The purpose of the arrest was a mystery, but things are now becoming a little more clear.
TMZ obtained documents on Sept. 22 that show Larissa, a native of Brazil, has been "placed in removal proceedings" in accordance with the Immigration and Nationality Act. A hearing will be set to determine if she'll have to leave the United States.
Larissa's arrest came moments before she and her boyfriend, Eric Nichols, were set to move from Las Vegas to Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Carmen Nys, who also appears on "90 Day Fiancé," wrote about the arrest on her Instagram Story in real time, saying she and Eric watched agents take Larissa away.
"[Larissa] just got arrested by ICE when she was about to leave their house and move to Colorado," Carmen wrote. "We have no clue why."
After several hours of detainment, Larissa was released. While en route to Colorado, she quickly posted a video to Instagram stating that ICE agents were nice and she's "good to go."
On Sept. 22, Larissa spoke about the changes happening in her life.
"People are taking advantage of my situation posting false information and making speculations. Since day one, my name has been on the blast," she said. "Daily, I receive threats of all kinds, even rape and death, written in words that would make any sane person go insane. 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 added, "What was just a site for fans of the show to vent, has turned abusive. Yes, I could fight them, get a restraining order if they are residing in the same state as me, if not it becomes a matter of FBI."
"I know a handful of people that have overcome the obstacles that I am going through. That gives me strength. It is also true that I have endless support and love from my family, my friends, and so many fans. It is this support that keeps me moving forward," she continued. "I want to explain everything that has happened in the recent, and in my past, but I'm struggling to come up with the right words to type that give my feelings justice."
Referencing her recent hugely-successful one-hour lingerie show on the webcam app CamSoda, she said, "It is my desire to empower all women, and stop the discrimination and stigma of those that work with agencies such as Onlyfans and camsoda. These platforms have helped millions of people going through the pandemic shutdown."
Larissa promised to speak more deeply about her life and her situation on YouTube.
"I will be able to tell my story and shed light for the immigration process I am experiencing," she said. "I've been gagged many times after telling my followers I am going to talk. Well, soon I'm removing that gag around me permanently."
