90 Day Fiance: The Other Way pair Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee are headed for a split, a source exclusively told Soap Dirt. Here are the details on what’s happening with them, where Deavan is now – and what’s next for the Korean-American pair that share a child.
90 Day Fiance: Deavan Clegg Back in U.S. for “Personal Reasons”
Recently, Deavan Clegg traveled back to America, with her children, but without Jihoon Lee. She said she came back for “personal reasons that have to do with my family”. Deavan added that she’s “figuring that out”. She said she plans to be in the U.S. for about a month.
But is there more to this 90 Day Fiance separation? We’ve heard from two sources that there’s trouble in the water for Jihoon Lee and his wife Deavan Clegg. The first red flag is that Deavan left Korea to come back to the US once travel restrictions eased.
The second is she brought both of her children, which seems riskier than leaving them back in Korea. However, a 90 Day Fiance source says that one of the issues Deavan Clegg dealt with was cutting ties with TLC. Although she and Jihoon Lee filmed another season, it could be their last.

Mom Says Kids Unhappy in Korea – Cites Mental Health Issues
90 Day Fiance‘s Deavan Clegg also said that it got to an “unhealthy point” where the kids (Drascilla and Taeyang) were unhappy being stuck in the small apartment. Deavan said that’s why she left Jihoon Lee and brought the kids to America since Utah is wide open.
Then, she said being in Korea was a “huge issue” for both her and Drascilla’s “mental state”. Deavan Clegg also said her 90 Day Fiance hubby Jihoon Lee couldn’t come along due to “prior engagements” but didn’t list specifics. She said there were “issues” with Jihoon coming along.
However, on the upcoming season of 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way, there are arguments between Jihoon and Deavan about her modeling career. She said she’s the breadwinner. And, she had “to step up and start providing for this family”. So, did finances cause a rift between Deavan and Jihoon Lee?
Two 90 Day Fiance Sources Say She’s Splitting From Jihoon Lee
Two independent sources told us things fell apart between Deavan Clegg. They said she hinted it’s over between her and Jihoon Lee. The cracks were there on last season’s Tell-All when Jihoon said his mother doesn’t like his Deavan. We heard that’s about the way his wife treats him – and money.
In addition to family pressures, it’s clear there are financial woes particularly if Deavan Clegg’s modeling is their sole support. The other chatter we’ve heard is that she’s done with TLC, 90 Day Fiance and its spinoffs. A source said she hired a lawyer and fought to end her contract and won’t be on any more seasons after the one just filmed.
Yet, in a recent video, Deavan Clegg said she “didn’t run away from anything”. But our sources inside 90 Day Fiance production tell us that’s not the case. Of course, there’s no official word from either Jihoon or Deavan and we expect denials about them splitting up.
In her latest social post, she talked about her future in South Korea. And she mentioned her husband. But our sources say there’s trouble behind that talk. We’ll let you know more news as it develops and we get more from our sources on Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg.
