What's especially sad about this situation is that Jose was the inspiration for the character Felipe in Eat, Pray, Love — the incredible man Elizabeth's character meets in Bali after divorcing her first husband.

Unfortunately, things did not work out for E.G. like she had planned due to "very personal reasons". Check out the writer's disappointed post (below):
