90 Day Fiance star Jihoon Lee is fighting for custody of his son, Taeyang Scuti Lee. He has decided to take matters into his own hands. However, a legal battle will cost him. So, he is asking fans for their support.
90 Day Fiance: Jihoon Lee Seeks Financial Help from Fans
Jihoon Lee and his ex-wife Deavan Clegg have had difficulty co-parenting their son, Taeyang Lee. The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way castmate hasn’t seen his little boy since Deavan took Taeyang away to America. When Deavan left South Korea with her kids, she claimed it was only for a short amount of time. Deavan promised to return. But, she never did. Deavan quickly found a boyfriend in America, and told fans it was over with Jihoon.
Now Jihoon Lee from 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way has to get the law involved just to be with his Taeyang again. However, dealing with an international legal battle can be challenging. It also will cost him money he does not have. Jihoon is not from a wealthy family, so he is seeking help from fans. He has set up a fundraiser to help him get the money he needs to fight for his parental rights.
Jihoon said that the “funds are raised to facilitate” trust with the attorney that will be representing him.
Jihoon Thankful for Support
Jihoon Lee is thankful for all the support he has been getting from TLC viewers. The 90 Day Fiance star felt “overwhelmed” with the opportunity of possibly getting to be in his son’s life. He also said that he appreciates that fans are willing to help him financially. However, Jihoon is also grateful for those who aren’t able to donate but are still showing their support.
While other 90 Day Fiance cast members have used GoFundMe to get money for clothes and plastic surgery procedures, most fans think that Jihoon is asking for money for the right reasons.
The 90 Day Fiance reality star says that he has made mistakes in the past. However, Jihoon Lee said that he is trying to “improve for the future.” Being away from Taeyang since the beginning of the year hasn’t been easy for him. Jihoon also has a hard time seeing Taeyang be around Deavan Clegg’s new boyfriend as he seems to be a new father figure.
90 Day Fiance Celeb Brushes up on Language Skills
Jihoon Lee seems to be prepping for his legal battle by brushing up on his English skills. Being able to speak the language hasn’t always been easy for Jihoon. He and Deavan Clegg struggled to communicate with each other with their limited knowledge of each others’ languages. But, he may be learning more English to better understand everything that happens during his legal battle.
The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way cast member has his friend Terry teach him English. During one of their teaching sessions, Jihoon Lee and his friend took a break from learning to eat pizza. Jihoon seems dedicated to learning the language. It will also allow him to speak to his son since Taeyang Lee lives in a country that speaks English. There is a good chance that Deavan Clegg has not been having Taeyang learn Korean.
