While 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way showed Jihoon Lee and Deavan Clegg finally getting to a good place in their marriage, behind-the-scenes news has been rolling out for months about the two's high-profile breakup and all the drama that ensued thereafter. It's the only way fans will get further details anytime soon, and fans might not even be able to watch the show for updates in the future, as Deavan addressed rumors about her status with the franchise in a most interesting way.
Deavan is speaking out on the internet about recent rumors, specifically the ones talking about why she may no longer be involved with 90 Day Fiancé and TLC. Deavan posted a message on her Instagram Stories that denied any allegations that she was fired from the show, and also made it clear to followers and fans what her current situation is.
I'm seeing a lot of articles and YouTube videos that I've been fired. I would like to address this. I've never been fired that is fake news. I am still attached to Sharp. I also saw another cast who they claimed this about had to also speak out. I just don't want to continue to film if ever asked.
According to Deavan Clegg, she has not been fired by TLC or 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, and is apparently still employed by Sharp Entertainment. With that being said, she has expressed that she no longer wishes to film or participate in the 90 Day Fiancé series, so it's unclear whether or not that would eventually lead to a termination of her contract, or if her contractual obligations expired at the conclusion of filming Season 2 of The Other Way.
Deavan made mention of another couple recently denying they were fired, which seems to be a nod to Paul and Karine Staehle. In their post, Paul stated that they were never fired (despite some very controversial headlines they created during their brief split) and that their contract had expired. Their statements feel very similar to Deavan's, which has me speculating whether or not it's the same situation with their contracts.
The confusing part is that if Deavan Clegg is still "attached" to Sharp Entertainment as she said above, then one would imagine it would be because she still has an active contract specifically with 90 Day Fiancé, unless there's another project in the works that nobody knows about. If that contract requires her participation in filming one of the existing shows, then it would seemingly follow that Deavan would be expected to film again, or else have her contract terminated. She may not be fired yet, but depending on what this level of attachment is and what's contingent on it, that eventuality could still happen.
The bottom line, in any case, would be that it appears Deavan Clegg is done with 90 Day Fiancé and all the other spinoffs that come along with it. That may not be too surprising to hear, especially given the drama in her failed marriage with Jihoon Lee in recent months. The two have been back and forth with shocking claims lodged back and forth, and it wouldn't be the best thing in the world to air all that out on cable television. That's not to say the show doesn't thrive on certain couples doing just that, but it seems, for now, that Deavan and Jihoon won't be one of them.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way airs on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for all the latest happening in the franchise, and for more news in television and movies.
