90 Day Fiance: The Other Way star Jihoon Lee recently dropped huge bombs about Deavan Clegg and their relationship. Since news broke that Deavan and Jihoon are heading for a divorce, the two have been revealing their sides of the story. And, now it’s Jihoon’s turn to address some of the allegations and claims.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way – Jihoon Lee Says Deavan Controlled the Money
A big issue between Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg was money on 90 Day Fiance. Deavan repeatedly brought up that she was the one paying for everything.
However, Jihoon said that she “paid all the expenses in Korea” but it seems that she paid the bills using both their money.
He explained that in addition to getting paid from being on TLC’s 90 Day Fiance, they also made money from their social media accounts. It’s not enough to get rich, but it’s enough to live a comfortable life. However, he thought the money they were making wasn’t enough, so he went back to work.
The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way reality star also opened up about his employment. Jihoon Lee said that he was “learning to work as a tile maker.” However, he had to quit since he didn’t have the extra money to pay for the training. So, he went out and found a job where he could start making money right away. However, it seems like Deavan Clegg might have been the one to push him to get a job. Jihoon said that she told him she “would walk away” from him and “take the children” if he didn’t show that he have more money coming in. Despite suffering from a car accident, Jihoon kept working.
Jihoon and Deavan Clegg Struggle to Co-parent
90 Day Fiance’s Jihoon Lee also spoke about his struggles with co-parenting with the mother of his child. Deavan Clegg had previously said that she has tried to co-parent with him, but he refused to. According to Jihoon, it’s a lie. He said that Deavan was going to send him pictures of Taeyang. But, Jihoon felt useless if the only thing he can do is see an image of his little boy. There was also a loss in translation when he told her that he wants to see his son. He said that it came across as “I can’t raise the son” and that he “refused to see any pictures.”
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Celeb Claims Deavan Never Spoke to His Parents
When it comes to 90 Day Fiance’s Deavan Clegg reaching out to Jihoon Lee’s parents, it seems like she could have been lying. Jihoon said that his parents have “never once heard from” Deavan. He even said that he could prove it by getting records from the telecommunication company.
Jihoon Says Deavan Forced the Breakup
Jihoon Lee also spilled on his breakup with Deavan Clegg. The 90 Day Fiance alum said that while he was working, he got a call from her saying “she would kill herself” if he didn’t let her go home to America. So, he let Deavan go with the two kids.
However, when Deavan arrived in America, Jihoon got a call from her, claiming he was abusive towards Drascilla. She then demanded that they break up.
A source told Soap Dirt at the time that the 90 Day Fiance stars were broken up for good. When we reported this, Deavan said it wasn’t true and that she and Jihoon were fine. She even said she planned to return to South Korea soon. As everyone now knows, this wasn’t true.
After several more accusations against Jihoon, he finally gave his side of the story, and you can see it here.
Jihoon Hopes to See Son Again – Deavan Using Fake Laws against Him?
The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cast member is hopeful that he will see his child again. However, Jihoon Lee said that Deavan Clegg has been using the law against him.
So, he has become very familiar with Korean laws and American laws and realized that what Deavan was telling him wasn’t true. He said that Deavan tries to use “false laws” to make him feel like he has no hope of being with Taeyang again.
