90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way Season 2 has wrapped for TLC, but the drama and commentary from its participants continue to flow throughout the internet. Just days after Brittany Banks slammed TLC's production and called them "garbage ass humans," Deavan Clegg has spoken out with a pretty shocking allegation.
Deavan, who announced recently she hadn't been fired from the franchise but would not participate in filming any longer, blasted the franchise on her social media. Additionally, she made a pretty startling claim that she and other unnamed cast members contemplated suicide as a result of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. Here's some of what she had to say:
The past two years have been the hardest I've ever experienced in my life. My life is forever changed by this show. Some good some bad. I want to personally thank the Korean film crew who was apart from Sharp. Amazing, kind, and loyal. Who knew the bad and held my hand through it. I wish I could say the same about Sharp...This experience has taught me so much. Although [I'm] grateful for the opportunities this show has brought. The greater lesson I’ve learned is how evil some people can be. The truth of reality is dark and evil. Fake scenarios taken from real life to ruin many peoples lives. My heart goes out to the many people who have taken their lives this year due to reality tv going to far. I hope this recent season has taught sharp a lesson. There was a lot cut the second half of the season. Alot of over the line things bringing many of the cast members to almost take their lives. Me being one of them. I will post the video TLC showed in the trailer the video was my goodbye. This experience took me to a dark place I never want to revisit. But I also met amazing people in Korea who helped me through this time. I hope future cast members are treated fairly and not as money bags or other puppets.
It's pretty shocking stuff, and some of it are things that Deavan Clegg alleged in the past. Mainly, the bit about the show's selective editing, and it is true that 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way did not show a lot of footage from when the couple was in lockdown during COVID-19. Both Deavan and Jihoon have different stories of how their final weeks before she left Korea went down, and viewers have pointed out that neither one alluded to any trouble on their YouTube channel prior to her trip back home.
In regards to suicide, it's unclear who or what Deavan Clegg is referring to. One person who did a post about suicide from the show was her ex, Jihoon Lee, in a post that came in the time after the two publicly confirmed the split. They have had quite a messy public back and forth in recent months, so it's unclear if she's referring to him with her comments about suicide, or someone else.
This wouldn't be the first time a disgruntled castmember made claims about 90 Day Fiancé or Sharp, the production company responsible for it. If nothing else, it should serve as a warning to any future participants that their time on reality television may not turn out the way they plan, or even cause problems for them outside of the show.
90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way is done on TLC, but 90 Day Fiancé returns to television Sunday, December 6 at 8:00 p.m. ET. Continue to stick with CinemaBlend for all the latest on the franchise, and for more news in television and movies.
