If there were a contest for which reality television shows contained the most drama between couples, 90 Day Fiancé and Teen Mom would top the list. Now, in a crossover that no one asked for, two former stars of both franchises are in a feud that could result in a legal battle. So what's going on, and why did Deavan Clegg threaten to take Jenelle Evans to court?
Deavan Clegg's potential lawsuit against Jenelle Evans was announced by her publicist Lindsay Feldman, who spoke to TMZ about the 90 Day Fiancé star's intentions. The announcement came on the heels of a 44-minute video by Evans, which explained her side of the drama. In the video, Evans claimed that after she met up with Clegg for a weekend together, her anxiety medication turned up missing. This is reportedly one of the main reasons Clegg will seek legal action, though it's just the latest spat between the two in the midst of a months-long squabble.
The feud between Deaven Clegg and Jenelle Evans started when the two girls were brought together with social media influencer Gabbie Egan for a podcast called Girl S#!t. The podcast quickly fell apart when it was alleged that Clegg learned very public details about Jenelle Evans' life for the first time and asked that she be removed from the podcast. Evans then went to war against Clegg and allegedly leaked news about Clegg's miscarriage. Egan, hoping to clear the air, then posted private chat threads that talked about Clegg's new pregnancy, which hadn't been publicly revealed.
Should Deavan Clegg go through with the lawsuit, it will be yet another added to her plate in the past year. Clegg is already in a legal battle with her ex-husband, Jihoon Lee, whom she appeared with on 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way. The two are in a custody battle for visitation rights over their shared son, Taeyang, and there were reports of investigations underway for reported abuse by Lee against her daughter, Drascilla. It was a whirlwind twist of events for the couple, who seemed happy right up until her abrupt trip to America, after which she revealed to Lee that she would not be returning.
Deaven Clegg has made many headlines in her short stint on 90 Day Fiancé, though so has Jenelle Evans. Evans has found herself in many controversies over the years and most notably lost her Teen Mom contract and temporary custody of her children after her husband David Eason shot their dog in the face for nipping their daughter. Evans did not publicly respond to the latest from Deavan Clegg but did share a recent TikTok from Gabbie Egan about the drama, which she found quite funny:
It was also reported that Deavan Clegg was considering legal action against Gabbie Egan for violating the NDA tied to the podcast. It's hard to say whether Egan's TikTok indicates she's not too worried about Clegg's reported moves or if she's just coping with being caught up in the feud between Clegg and Jenelle Evans. Only time will tell if all parties can reach an understanding before things get expensive for everyone involved.
As the drama between Jenelle Evans and Deavan Clegg continues, folks can tune in for more drama on 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? on TLC Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET. For more on that franchise, read up on what's happening with Angela Deem and Michael Ilesanmi after their latest blowup.
