Less than a week after revealing that Colt stole money from her and deactivated her phone, is Larissa having a change of heart?
Because suddenly, over the weekend, Larissa's Instagram underwent a change.
A bunch of old photos of her with Coltee reappeared as if they'd never been gone in the first place.
Is she waxing nostalgic about her time with her ex on 90 Day Fiance?
Or, as some fans believe, is this part of a cunning legal strategy?
We have another theory. Take a look at the photos and hear our take on it:
Look at the pics that are suddenly visible again
In January, Larissa Lima had purged her Instagram of all photos of Colt and everything from their time together. Now, more than half a dozen photos have suddenly resurfaced.
She even posted confessions of their love
"Do you love me?" Larissa asked Colt on their wedding day. He replied: "More than anything." Silly filter or not, it was a sweet moment.
She included pics from a photoshoot
You may recognize their looks in these three photos -- they are the same as in their official photo for TLC's 90 Day Fiance.
Larissa did not explain why the pics are back
For the matter, she never explained why she had purged them from Instagram -- though we all sort of assumed that she just did not want to see Colt after their scary, violent breakup.
Has she changed her mind?
Maybe she's softening her view of Colt despite everything, even if not all of these photos are as flattering to Coltee as they are to her.
Maybe it's just a throwback to simpler times
She and Colt may have been in a toxic relationship, but they did enjoy themselves at times
Suddenly, the photos return
Is Larissa waxing nostalgic for a man who was no good for her? Or is there a method to her madness? ...
Fans have a theory
They think that she is hoping that Colt will remember the good times. Why? Because she has a court date coming up
Actually, Larissa has a LOT of court dates coming up
She's getting divorced from Colt. He filed for divorce on January 11, just hours after their violent breakup
She's also preparing to fight deportation
There are two reasons for which she could get deported. One, she and Colt are splitting, just seven months after getting married. And the other ...
Larissa was arrested
Three times, Colt called the police and accused Larissa of domestic battery. The first two times, he dropped the charges. The third and final time, though Larissa's face was smeared with her own blood and her face and torso had multiple injuries, Colt told authorities that Larissa's wounds were self-inflicted.
This time, he did not drop the charges
Just one domestic violence conviction could be all of the "moral turpitude" that immigration officials need to give Larissa the boot back to Brazil.
Maybe she hopes that Colt will drop these charges, too
They can still get their divorce, but without the added stress for both parties of Larissa going to trial for domestic violence.
We have to be honest ...
We've heard some good fan theories over the years, but we're just not sure how some photos on Instagram are supposed to change Colt's mind. Especially when Larissa does not appear on Colt's page at all.
There may be an explanation that doesn't paint Larissa as someone who's suddenly nostalgic for her ex
What if this is all about 90 Day Fiance?
We know that Larissa and Colt filmed for 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After?
What if it's a contract thing?
As hard as it is to believe, not everyone keeps up with Larissa and Colt between seasons. There are 90 Day Fiance fans right now who don't know about their bloody fight in January.
But when the new season begins ...
... that may send those fans to Instagram where they'll check on things. If they don't find any photos of Colt, they'll be immediately suspicious. TLC does not like for 90 Day Fiance to be spoiled by its own stars.
Larissa wouldn't be the only one under an NDA
Ashley and Jay are currently embroiled in a huge scandal involving "leaking" their own photos under a fake account and using those "leaks" to gain sympathy from fans and even from castmates. During the scandal, TLC's NDAs have been a hot topic, as Ashley says that she had to break NDA to address the scandal.
Maybe Larissa is just being extra careful to avoid breaking the NDA. Maybe someone from TLC called her and told her to put up those photos
In fact ...
Maybe it was Ashley and Jay's scandal that reminded Larissa that she could land in hot water, contractually speaking, if her Instagram is broadcasting spoilers to fans
The rest of her IG is very different
Most of her photos are modeling photos. Larissa is now in the fashion business, as you may recall. She wants people to wear more colorful activewear.
That makes more sense than missing Colt
Again, they had some happy times in their relationship, but ... let's be realistic
Larissa doesn't miss Coltee
But she sure wants to be paid (finally) when 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After? airs!
Until then ...
Larissa wants spousal support. She is, as Cole's wife and now his ex, entitled to it.
She says that Colt kept some of her belongings
For now, she's asking for $1,000 a month in spousal support, plus half of the furniture and, of course, for her share of the money that she says that Colt stole from her. Something tells us that Coltee isn't going to grant her wish without a fight.
