90 Day Fiance: Deavan Clegg confirms abuse investigation against Jihoon Lee in South Korea
Deavan, who is embroiled in an ongoing divorce and custody battle with Jihoon, made a statement after been queried as to the status of the abuse complaint.
The 90 Day Fiance star and her agency, BrandBomb Marketing, told InTouch: “Police have received the evidence of abuse and are taking it very seriously and working with us closely. The investigation is ongoing, so we will not be able to speak further.”
Jihoon’s legal team responds
Meanwhile, Jihoon Lee’s attorney, Joseph Alamilla, responded to Deavan Clegg’s claims, questioning why it took her so long to report Jihoon when she previously had the opportunity to do it when she was still living in South Korea.
“It is my understanding that Deavan initiated an investigation in South Korea almost a year after having left South Korea with her daughter and Jihoon’s son,” Alamilla noted. “She did not make a complaint while she lived there and only filed the complaint after he filed his answer and counterclaim in this case.”
The 90 Day Fiance star’s lawyer added that they are now seeking to obtain a copy of the actual complaint. “It is unclear why she would wait so long to make such an allegation, but again we should have more information soon,” Alamilla said.
