90 Day Fiance: The Other Way alum Jihoon Lee just made an unexpected move on his legal bout against Deavan Clegg. The South Korean dad left his supporters baffled after terminating his attorney, Joseph Alamilla.

90 Day Fiance: Jihoon Lee Severs Ties With Lawyer

Looks like Jihoon Lee has given up on his custody battle against Deavan Clegg. The 90 Day Fiance dad appeared to have lost his final hope to get Taeyang back. This is after he severed ties with his lawyer, Joseph Alamilla.

Jihoon took to Instagram earlier and announced the shocking news to his followers. The reality star shared a screenshot of his letter addressed to Alamilla, expressing his intent to officially remove him as his attorney.

In the brief letter, the 90 Day Fiance star said he's "terminating" his lawyer's services immediately. Jihoon also explained in his letter the reason behind his decision.

The TLC celeb said he fired his lawyer because of his supposed "unethical order" for him to appear on numerous YouTube videos and other platforms to promote his GoFundMe campaign.

Did Jihoon Give Up on His Custody Battle?

Jihoon Lee also said his lawyer talking about "rumors" in public was "unprofessional service" that he did not expect to get. Joseph Alamilla has appeared on a few live videos where he shared his thoughts on Deavan Clegg. The father of one ended his letter with a firm declaration of completely disassociating himself with his attorney.

Meanwhile, Jihoon's GoFundMe manager, Amanda Grayce Crosby, expressed dismay with his latest move. She said the 90 Day Fiance star "asked to drop all cases Joe has filed on his behalf."

Many are now expressing their dismay on Jihoon Lee for seemingly throwing away everything. This is despite the time and effort given to him by his avid supporters in America. As of this writing, Jihoon has yet to reveal what his next plan is.

90 Day Fiance: Jihoon's Donors Turn Against Him After Shocking Move

Those who donated to Jihoon Lee's GoFundMe couldn't help but feel bad about the whole thing. Many called out the 90 Day Fiance star for his sudden change of heart without giving any clear explanation.

Some of his supporters also turned against him after his bold move. They think the reality star doesn't deserve any help after what happened.

While some think badly of the 90 Day Fiance alum, others couldn't help but express concern for his wellbeing. Apparently, they think something is off with Jihoon, especially after he deleted all photos of Taeyang on his page.

Others believe Deavan Clegg has something to do with it and that she's celebrating the fall of her ex-husband's legal team. However, Deavan denied any connection to Jihoon's decision.
