Former 90 Day Fiancé star Deavan Clegg just informed her fans of the devastating news that her three-year-old son Taeyang is currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
Audience members were moved to action by Deavan’s announcement, with many pledging money to a GoFundMe campaign and other fundraising efforts.
Some people questioned the reality star’s timing in asking for donations, and Deavan addressed their concerns.
Deavan Clegg addressed some questions from his Instagram fans during a recent live session. Taeyang’s custody battle with her ex-husband Jihoon Lee had just concluded.
She repeated her prior statements in answer to fans’ inquiries about Jihoon and his family’s involvement in Taeyang’s life, stating that they had not recently attempted to contact him.
Deavan defended herself once more against accusations from fans that she hid Taeyang from her ex and his family by saying that she is now trying to raise money for Taeyang’s medical treatment due to the quarrel with Jihoon.
After separating from Jihoon Lee, Deavan Clegg appeared to clarify that the money she made from 90 Day Fiancé and its spinoffs was used to pay for legal representation in her custody battle for Taeyang.
She mentioned her ex’s crowdfunding account to pay for his own legal representation in the custody case as part of her comeback, which was a subtle jab at him.
Despite the fact that Lee hasn’t updated his social media since late May, his Instagram account is currently devoid of any photographs of Taeyang and Deavan. The degree to which he is aware of his son’s sickness is not communicated.
To date, supporters have donated to Deavan Clegg’s fight against Taeyang’s B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Four days after launching her crowdfunding campaign, she made the following adjustments:
Since then, the GoFundMe campaign has raised almost $20,000, but they need $50,000 to cover medical expenses.
Taeyang is halfway through a two-year therapy process that, according to the campaign launched by Deavan’s mom Elicia, has a high success record of total recovery within five years. They have a tough road ahead of them and may need any help given to them over the next few years.
TLC airs 90 Day Fiancé every Sunday night at 8:00 p.m. ET. Deavan Clegg’s episodes are already available for anybody interested in exploring her tale, however, subscribers to HBO Max will eventually get access to those episodes.
