Devean Clegg: Jihoon Lee Under Investigation ... For Child Abuse

by at .  Updated at .

90 Day Fiance: The Other Way alum Deavan Clegg and her family are trying to heal and move on.

Between a malicious edit and the harrowing trauma that they suffered off screen, they've had enough of the spotlight.

But closure will have to wait -- because Deavan and Jihoon Lee are in for a custody fight over little Taeyang.

Additionally, Deavan has now confirmed that her ex is facing a criminal investigation for child-abuse.

Jihoon Lee Has Some Concerns

Deavan Clegg and her rep spoke to In Touch Weekly, where they confirmed that Jihoon Lee is under criminal investigation.

“Police have received the evidence of abuse," Deavan revealed.

"And are taking it very seriously," she continued, "and working with us closely."

“The investigation is ongoing," Deavan clarified.

"So," she explained, "we will not be able to speak further.”

Obviously, Deavan sharing details publicly could harm the case.

In the past, the only real details that have come out about the harrowing allegations about Jihoon were made public through leaks.

What little Deavan has said to the public came only after Jihoon's lengthy, seemingly preemptive "defense" post against allegations that he knew were coming.

After THG's coverage of Jihoon's Instagram rant, Deavan confirmed only that Jihoon was deliberately misleading fans about the inciting incident behind their divorce.

Fans have since heard the horrifying accusation that Jihoon pinned down, struck, and ripped out hair from Deavan's young daughter Drascilla, then threatened to take his own life and Taeyang's.

All of those details did not come directly from Deavan, but through a leak.

These accusations were made public by a third party -- infamous 90 Day Fiance villain Leida Margaretha.

On the positive side -- such as they are, in a case as awful as this -- at least the accusations are public and not merely fan rumor.

Additionally, the leak revealed that Deavan had significant evidence of the injuries to her young daughter.

She also shared that Jihoon had allegedly attempted to hack into her cloud storage in order to delete the evidence, but had been unsuccessful.

While those photos and the emergency phone call from the night in question are likely evidence in the case, we do not know what other evidence may be involved.

Meanwhile, Jihoon has been crowdfunding money from fans for his own various legal cases, including his side of the custody fight for Taeyang.

His attorney has cast aspersions upon Deavan's pursuit of criminal charges, implying that because she did not press charges immediately, the case is somehow suspect.

"She did not make a complaint while she lived there," Joseph Alamilla shaded.

Jihoon's attorney continued: "and only filed the complaint after he filed his answer and counterclaim in this case."

He added that he is attempting to get his hands on the details of the criminal complaint.

Obviously, there are multiple reasons why so many people every year wait to press charges -- or do not press them at all.

Many hope for closure, and would rather move on and put someone behind them than attempt to see justice done.

2020 had a particular set of obstacles worldwide, as amidst the COVID-19 pandemic and particularly for those first several months, anything but survival just needed to wait.

In 2020, we did see how Deavan attempted to avoid badmouthing Jihoon on Instagram for many months after her return to the US.

Fans have seen evidence that she repeatedly tried to get Jihoon to take an interest in his son, Taeyang, despite the traumatic circumstances of their breakup.

In the alleged private correspondence, Jihoon appeared much less interested than his public posts have suggested. And fans saw no moves for him to get an attorney before a desperate superfan took that task upon themself.
