90 Day Fiance: The Other Way star Deavan Clegg finally addressed her impending divorce from Jihoon Lee. The TLC celeb ditched her Korean husband after tying the knot last year. Deavan quickly moved on with a new man, LA-based actor Topher Park.
Deavan took some heat for starting a relationship while telling 90 Day Fiance followers she was still with Jihoon. Now, Deavan seems to blame Jihoon for the slow process of ending their marriage.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way: Deavan Clegg Reacts to Jihoon Lee’s Divorce Claims
Deavan Clegg, the 90 Day Fiance star, is clearly not happy about the criticism. She says she wants to end her marriage.
However, Deavan said that getting a divorce is beyond her control. She says the process hasn’t started so they’re still technically husband and wife. But Deavan quickly defended herself, saying it’s all on Jihoon.
She Says Only Jihoon Can File for Divorce – Blames It On Him Again
It seems Deavan Clegg is putting all the blame on Jihoon Lee again. She says that the two have been separated for six months, but four months ago she told 90 Day Fiance watchers that everything was fine between her and Jihoon. She also said that she would traveling back to South Korea soon. Now, fans find out that she’s had a serious boyfriend in America for a while.
The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way celeb claimed her husband has been doing nothing to move forward with their separation. She said she can’t file for a divorce by herself, and claims that only only Jihoon can do it.
Deavan also slammed her 90 Day Fiance husband for publicly saying they have yet to officially start the process. “Him saying publicly divorce hasn’t been filed yet, that’s on him,” she said. “We’ve been separated for over six months and I’ve been pleading.” Looks like she got impatient already and started a new romance as soon as the opportunity arises.
What Deavan was talking about was when Jihoon made posts about how depressed he was that Deavan has a boyfriend that was playing father to his child while they were still married. Jihoon was not saying that he wanted a divorce.
90 Day Fiance: Is Deavan Telling the Truth?
Deavan Clegg has been less than truthful with 90 Day Fiance fans in the past to make Jihoon Lee look bad.
So, some The Other Way fans are not buying Deavan Clegg’s latest claims. Some fans are accusing Jihoon Lee’s wife of making up stories just to make him look bad. They fan from Jihoon’s area said that Korean divorce law “doesn’t treat foreigners differently” and that they can freely file for divorce.
It seems, a foreigner can still legally end a marriage in South Korea even if the spouse disagrees to it. Sources also revealed that a foreigner doesn’t have to reside in Korea when divorcing his/her spouse.
This is a far cry from Deavan’s remark, suggesting that only Jihoon can start the divorce process. So, it appears the 90 Day Fiance wife (Deavan Clegg) could begin the process herself even if she’s in America. Plus, a divorce is generally started by the party that wants to end the marriage. Another alternative is for Deavan to start the divorce process in the United States. She is still a U.S. citizen and a divorce here is recognized in South Korea under mutual reciprocity laws.
So, why is Deavan blaming Jihoon for not getting started on a divorce he doesn’t want?
