90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way star Deavan Clegg took to social media recently, feeling a need to address rumors from viewers claiming she's been deceptive in the telling of her life events. The reality star, who currently has no plans to return to the franchise, hopped online to address a theory from fans, stating that she had an abortion rather than suffered a miscarriage while married to Jihoon Lee.
The accusation was apparently the final straw, and Clegg took to social media, stating that she'd be taking a break for a while. Read up on her statement posted to Instagram Stories and how her absence from the platform may be shorter-lived than she intended:
Deavan Clegg went a bit further in addressing the allegations, stating that abortion is illegal in South Korea, which further shows how difficult it would've been for her to do while living there. Clegg also addressed that the rumor may have been fueled by ex-husband Jihoon Lee's confirmation that it happened and said she's "disgusted" if that were true. It should be noted there's no evidence of Jihoon confirming the theory on his social media or addressing it in any way.
Deavan Clegg was away from social media for a brief time, but it didn't take long for fans to see links to questionable 90 Day Fiancé content appearing in her stories. Fans wanted to know why Deavan was back so soon and potentially starting drama, given she just left the platform for that reason, and the star responded with the following:
And while Deavan Clegg has not posted photos on her page in a minute, she was back online as of February 8th sharing links to an InTouch article, which reports that South Korean authorities have officially launched an investigation into alleged child abuse by Jihoon Lee. The article also said Deavan has entered a custody battle with Jihoon over their shared son, Taeyang, so it appears all that drama is officially underway. Speaking out now on social media in the midst of an investigation wouldn't be advisable by a legal counsel I'd imagine so, while I personally don't believe Deavan will be absent from social media much going forward, I would expect all talk about Jihoon to stop until court proceedings have ended.
90 Day Fiancé airs on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. Deavan Clegg is obviously not involved in it, but continue to stick around here for more updates on her ongoing struggles with Jihoon and for updates on what's happening with other former stars of the franchise like Paul and Karine Staehle.
