90 Day Fiance alum Jihoon Lee fights back against the perception that he’s too laid back and now he’s fighting for son Taeyang Scuti Lee. The ex of Deavan Clegg earned criticism for his low-key attitude and then she walked out on their marriage to start things with a new guy. Now, with a fundraiser in progress for his legal battle, Jihoon faces accusations about his intentions.
90 Day Fiance’s Jihoon Lee Almost Gave Up on Son Taeyang
Shortly after confirming his connection to an existing GFM fundraiser, Jihoon Lee shared what it’s like living without Taeyang Lee. The 90 Day Fiance dad revealed that things were never the same since Deavan Clegg took their son to America, allegedly without his consent. Now, she’s got someone else playing daddy to Jihoon’s son.
While answering questions with his fundraiser’s organizer, Amanda Crosby, Jihoon admitted that he almost gave up on his little boy. The food delivery driver said things were hard for him and remain so, even to this day. Jihoon added that he gets emotional every time he sees a happy family as it reminds him of the good times he had with his child.
90 Day Fiance’s Jihoon Lee also revealed that his parents are still affected by Taeyang’s absence in their lives. The TLC star said the doting grandparents “pretend to be okay” but are actually sad about the whole situation. Meanwhile, Deavan put someone else in Jihoon’s role in their son’s life and left his real dad behind in Korea.
Jihoon Explains Why He Agrees To Fundraiser
Now, it seems the overwhelming support Jihoon gets from 90 Day Fiance fans pushes him to fight for Taeyang. This weekend, Jihoon Lee said all the help he’s getting now fueled his hope of getting back in his son’s life. Plus, he thanked everyone who donated to help him wage his international legal battle for his child.
Jihoon also explained why he agreed to the fundraising campaign, despite the backlash he might face. He pointed out that having a fundraiser is the “fastest way” to get Taeyang back. Jihoon added that if he relied on his income alone, it will take a long time for him to save money to afford the legal help he needs.
The 90 Day Fiance father added that his child is growing up fast. He said he’s missing out on Taeyang’s childhood and he doesn’t want it to continue that way. It seems Jihoon Lee is eager to be part of his son’s life even if Deava Clegg opposes it.
