90 Day Fiance star Jihoon Lee confirms he and his wife Deavan Clegg are divorcing as his wife moves on with new boyfriend. The couple had a tumultuous relationship from the start. So now as their season of Happily Ever After airs, we see the cracks in their relationship up close. Then add in the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns, and Deavan just couldn’t take it.
Jihoon Lee posted a teary-eyed and sad update to his 90 Day Fiance fans, informing them of the status of his marriage to Deavan Clegg. Here’s what we know about their split and how they plan to co-parent their son Taeyang Lee.
90 Day Fiance: Jihoon Lee’s Teary-Eyed Divorce Confession
90 Day Fiance celeb Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg are definitely divorcing. Jihoon Lee said that he and Deavan are no longer together. Jihoon’s confirmation comes months after a source told Soap Dirt exclusively in May the couple had split.
Back then, both Jihoon and Deavan were tight-lipped, but Deavan did refute the Soap Dirt report that has now been confirmed to be true.
Deavan likely had to keep this news under wraps due to their NDA (nondisclosure agreement) with TLC as their season of Happy Ever After was about to start airing.
Now the 90 Day Fiance couple is breaking their silence and confirming what we have been reporting for months. The couple’s been living apart for three months now. At this time, it’s unclear whether the divorce proceedings will take place in South Korea or the USA. However, neither spouse has filed legal documents.
Jihoon Says Deavan Will Spend Summers In Korea
90 Day Fiance’s mom of two Deavan Clegg plans to spend summers in South Korea according to soon to be ex-husband Jihoon Lee. Of course we don’t know if this will turn out to be true. We’ll have to wait and see.
It could be that the broken up couple plans to do more filming for TLC and a breakup would most likely boost ratings for 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way or Happily Ever After.
So, as of now, Jihoon Lee won’t see his only son Taeyang until next summer unless he finds the money to make a trip to the United States. It is reported that Deavan Clegg wants to raise her children in America.
90 Day Fiance: What’s Next For Jihoon & Deavan?
90 Day Fiance alums Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee are parting ways. However, they’ll always be tied to each other through their child Taeyang. So, what’s next for these two? Well, first, Jihoon says he will work on himself. He wants to be able to provide for Taeyang. Also, he wants to take a few years to heal and find a new woman to share his life with.
As for Deavan, she has already found herself a new man. Her new boyfriend is Topher Park, an actor/musician/model. Like Jihoon, he is also Korean, but born and raised in Los Angeles.
Deavan has slammed Americans for how they deal with the Covid crisis, yet it is reported that the two alternate weekends flying back and forth to be with each other during the pandemic.
Topher has yet to meet Drascilla or Taeyang and according to sources does not want to be on 90 Day Fiance or a spinoff. He and Deavan are both Americans, but that may not stop TLC from working him into a storyline.
