90 Day Fiance: The Other Way star Jihoon Lee finally broke his silence on Deavan Clegg‘s accusations against him. The TLC celeb has been keeping a low profile ever since he confirmed their split. Deavan has been taking jabs at him for his role as a father to their son Taeyang Scuti Lee.
90 Day Fiance: Jihoon Lee Reacts to Deavan Clegg’s Boyfriend Playing Dad to His Son Taeyang
Jihoon Lee is speaking out again about Deavan Clegg and her allegations against him. The 90 Day Fiance celeb addressed his wife Deavan’s claims that he cut her and Taeyang out of his life. Deavan left Jihoon months ago and flew back to America with the two children during the height of the pandemic.
Previously, 90 Day Fiance‘s Deavan Clegg had said that South Korea was a safer place to be during the crisis because American’s were “dirty” and didn’t bathe.
At the time, 90 Day Fiance‘s Jihoon said he was lonely and depressed without his family. Earlier this week, Deavan Clegg went on a tirade accusing Jihoon Lee of playing the victim and using their son to gain sympathy. Many 90 Day Fiance fans think it’s the opposite.
During this period, Deavan Clegg claimed that she and Jihoon Lee were still together and her trip to the U.S. was just to take care of some business. However, a source told Soap Dirt in May that Deavan had no plans to return to her husband. Deavan denied our report, until last week when Jihoon confirmed it.
Deavan Clegg now claims that she left Jihoon Lee because “something bad happened that can never be forgiven”. She added that it will all come out on the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way Tell-All episode.
The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way celebrity Deavan Clegg also took a photo of her new boyfriend, Topher Park, doing daddy duties for Jihoon’s son. They even wore cute matching outfits to complete that father and son’s vibe.
This photo that Deavan Clegg shared with the world, seems to be the final straw for Jihoon Lee. He shared his feelings about the issue.
90 Day Fiance: The Other Way – Jihoon Lee Says His Heart Is Broken
Jihoon Lee shared an adorable photo of Taeyang alongside a lengthy message. The 90 Day Fiance cast member talked about how it felt to have Deavan Clegg let Topher Park take on his role as a dad so quickly. Remember, up until recently Deavan was claiming she and Jihoon were still together.
“Like he’s going to have a new father,” Jihoon Lee wrote. “Do you know how it feels? My heart is always breaking”.
Jihoon Lee revealed that Deavan Clegg jumped into a new relationship without his knowledge. He said there’s not even a divorce paper yet, implying that Deavan moved on quite fast.
The 90 Day Fiance celeb Jihoon also addressed allegations that he forgets about Taeyang.
Jihoon Lee said it’s a “stupid” thing to say, adding that he thinks of his little boy every day. “I will never forget my son and love him forever,” he wrote.
Deavan Clegg’s estranged husband Jihoon is in a difficult position. His family in South Korea comes from modest means. Even if he could afford the trip, he is not a U.S. Citizen, so he can’t fly to America to see his son during the travel ban. And he just learned English so it’s hard for him to express his feelings in world that 90 Day Fiance fans can understand.
Jihoon Lee is now broken and in pain, all because he swiped right on Deavan Clegg’s Tinder picture.

Meanwhile, Jihoon Lee also said that he blocked Deavan Clegg on social media. To be fair, Jihoon doesn’t use social media much and it probably is painful to see her posts talking about her new boyfriend in his feeds. The 90 Day Fiance celeb explained that he no longer wants to be involved in her life on social media. He added that it’s his way of organizing his mindset.
Jihoon Lee also said he and Deavan’s communication isn’t always good. He pointed out that his English skills are very limited and that contributed to their problems. Jihoon explained that he couldn’t express all his feelings in English as much as he wanted to. He said he’s tired of speaking English.
In the end, the 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way veteran asked his followers to respect his privacy as he continues to focus on improving himself for Taeyang. Jihoon Lee also told everyone to stop the “childish” online fight and just watch the upcoming Tell-All to know the truth.
