’90 Day Fiancé’: Are Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee Being Cut Out of Part 2 of ‘The Other Way’?
During the current season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way, fans have watched the drama surrounding Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee’s 2019 Korean wedding. While TLC aired those new episodes, fans watched on social media as Deavan and Jihoon’s relationship fell apart in real-time. After the mid-season break, fans expected to see what caused Deavan and Jihoon to separate. But in the first episode, the couple was conspicuously missing. Did TLC cut out Jihoon and Deavan from the rest of part 2?
’90 Day Fiancé’ fans don’t know who to believe
Deavan and Jihoon’s split has turned ugly in recent weeks, with her accusing him of abuse. Deavan claims that Jihoon and his parents did “vile things” to her four-year-old daughter, Drascilla.
She insists this is why she moved back to the United States with her two children this past summer. Deavan also cited this as the reason she and Jihoon are suddenly divorcing. The former couple promised that the truth would come out at the recent 90 Day Fiancé Tell-All special. But, TLC decided not to include Deavan and Jihoon because of the abuse claims.
According to Screen Rant, fans appear to be siding with Jihoon more than Deavan. They find him to be more believable and think Deavan has used him. They also believe she accuses Jihoon of doing things he didn’t do. Fans also do not see Jihoon as someone who would abuse a child.
Jihoon explained on his Instagram Story that Deavan’s abuse allegations came from miscommunication and cultural differences. The 90 Day Fiancé star said that Drascilla was enrolled in school in Korea. But she kept getting into trouble for her misbehavior, which included yelling, spitting, and biting.
Deavan Clegg accused Jihoon Lee of pulling her daughter’s hair
Drascilla’s teachers sent home letters to set up meetings with Jihoon and Deavan. He says that he tried to speak with his stepdaughter, but she wouldn’t listen to him. Jihoon also claims to have the paperwork to prove his story.
The 90 Day Fiancé star claims that Deavan refused to discipline or punish her daughter for her bad behavior. He says that his estranged wife accused him of abuse because she was mad he tried to discipline Drascilla. Jihoon admits that he pulled Drascilla’s hair and told her not to hurt others.
But, Deavan claims to have her own receipts to back up her claims. Deavan told All About The Tea that Drascilla told her repeatedly what happened the day Jihoon came to her school. She described it as “very heartbreaking” and “very sad.”
Deavan added that the hair-pulling incident happened a month later at three o’clock in the morning. However, she wouldn’t give any more details. Deaven did provide a picture of Drascilla that showed a large patch of hair was missing from her daughter’s head.
Did TLC cut Deavan and Jihoon from part 2 of ’90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way’?
As Screen Rant notes, when 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way returned for the second half of the season, Deavan and Jihoon were not part of the episode. This sparked speculation that the network had decided to cut them out of the remainder of the season.
Since Deavan has returned to America, she has started a new relationship with a man named Topher Park. At the same time, Jihoon has been flaunting his makeover on social media while accusing Deavan of keeping his son Taeyang away from him.
Since many viewers already know where the story is going, has TLC decided to cut it out of the show? The network did choose to disinvite the former couple from the Tell-All. And one report claims that Deavan’s “difficult” behavior has been frustrating for producers.
TLC has not issued any statement since opting to keep Deavan and Jihoon away from the special. Fans will just have to wait and see if the former couple shows back up in later episodes.
New episodes of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way air Sunday nights on TLC.
