90 Day Fiancé Spoilers: Jihoon Lee Under Investigation For Child Abuse
A spokesman for Deaven told Us Weekly that the police have started to look into those claims: “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.” The accusation, however, was rebuffed by Jihoon’s lawyer.
In an official statement, he said: “Deavan herself indicates that she was not there when it happened, and so given the length of time between the incident and her lack of first-hand knowledge. He denies the allegations and is actively seeking documentation concerning any alleged proof.” The lawyer added how Deavan waited a substantial time to submit the allegations in spite of being absent from Korea (and her husband) which puts a cloud over her credibility.
He added: “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. We are presently seeking to obtain records of the actual complaint and should have an update after we receive the documents.It is unclear why she would wait so long to make such an allegation, but again we should have more information soon.
“Jihoon is actively seeking these records to clear his good name.” So how did this all start? Well, the two split in August last year, Deavan was very vocal about it at the time. And she hit back at fans who criticised her in light of the split. She said on Instagram: “You don’t know what happened behind closed doors, you don’t know the type of evil that happened.
“I’m sick of being attacked and blamed and being told I’m [a] horrible person and I took my son away. You guys don’t know the half of it. My daughter is healing, and I’m healing. Something bad happened that can never be forgiven. I’m done. I’m sick of the lies. I’m sick of pretending it’s OK. I’m done.”
