’90 Day Fiancé’: Deavan Clegg Reveals How Much She Has Spent on Jihoon Lee, and It’s Insane
Deavan Clegg and Jihoon Lee are having money troubles and it’s costing them their relationship. Throughout this season of 90 Day Fiancé: The Other Way it’s become clear that Lee has no grasp of how to save money or prepare his finances for a family. In one episode, he even admitted his carelessness. But how much has Clegg spent on him?
Jihoon Lee doesn’t have a job
Underneath all of the money problems is the fact that Lee feels the need to lie to cover them up. Despite knowing that Clegg would not be comfortable in Korea unless he could help support her, Lee lied and told her that he had a good job.
“I don’t really have a job,” he said on the show. “I have a side job doing deliveries. It goes by the hour and it’s a part-time job. I lied to Deavan because if I have no money, Deavan’s not [coming] to Korea.”
On top of that, Lee has been in a massive amount of debt due to some bad decisions that he made, so he hasn’t been able to contribute much financially to the relationship or Clegg’s two children.
“I never went to a good university, and it’s not like I had any marketable skills,” he eventually said to Clegg on the show. “I decided to work part-time as a delivery man because I can rest when I want to rest.”
Deavan feels scammed
Clegg has put a lot into the relationship. This isn’t the first time that she has been to Korea. But, she thought that she would get at least some of the money back when Lee agreed to support their family this time.
“Jihoon admitting that he’s not financially ready for us to come to Korea is devastating because he told me everything was fine,” Clegg told the cameras. “But he lied to trick me into coming and that’s not OK.”
Since she found out that she was having a baby with Lee, Clegg had been working hard to support the family.
“I was very tired yet I was working 17 hours a day while taking care of the kids,” she told him. “I am just shocked right now. For me to put in all of that time to make sure my family was OK while he took a part-time job just so he could take more naps is ridiculous.”
In this week’s episode, Clegg even accused Lee of scamming her after he admitted that he had not been saving much money.
How much money has Deavan spent on Jihoon?
In a recent episode of the show, Clegg demanded that Lee give her the $3,000 that he had been saving. Fans did not like the way that Clegg forced Lee to give her money and took to Reddit to bash her. In order to clear up her name, Clegg responded to the thread.
“Worked 60 hours a week,” she wrote of how much she has worked and spent on Lee. “Paid for Vegas. Paid for travel back and forth. Paid for hospital bills. Paid for food for him [Jihoon], Paid for housing/drinks – $50000”.
She went on to explain the situation with her asking for $3,000.
“It wasn’t about his money,” she said. “I just wanted proof he actually saved some. I make my own money and always have. It’s about if he actually did the things he said.”
Apparently, Lee lied about more than just the money.
“I was told [that] I speak English, I have two jobs, I finished college, I’ve saved $20,000 for a house,” she said of what Lee told her. “I have a lot of money. It was the fact that I wanted proof he didn’t lie to me.”
