Dont vs Avec laquelle

Hello rooms and experts

Please clarify why the second of the two options is not also grammatically valid ?

1) La fille dont il a tombé amoureux 

2) La fille avec laquelle il a tombé amoureux

Hi Paris, 

1. the expression is,

'tomber amoureux de quelqu'un' ( to fall in love with someone

2. it uses être not avoir 

so -

La fille dont il est tombé amoureux ...

would be correct.

Hope this helps!
