90 Day Fiance: Jihoon Lee Backs Out of Team in America

Jihoon Lee seems eager to steer clear from his former team in the U.S. The 90 Day Fiance: The Other Way alum recently cut ties with his attorney and GoFundMe manager — a bold move that left his legal battle in uncertainty.

Last week, Deavan Clegg's ex-husband announced that he's no longer working with his fundraiser manager, Amanda Grayce Crosby. Jihoon also severed ties with his lawyer, Joseph Alamilla.

The 90 Day Fiance dad said he terminated his attorney's services because of his alleged "unethical order." Jihoon claimed he was asked by his team to appear on YouTube videos to promote his GoFundMe to the public.

Prior to Jihoon Lee terminating his lawyer, his fundraiser has been axed. The TV personality confirmed that its organizer, Amanda, decided to shut it down.

Amanda said it was because Jihoon doesn't want to communicate and blocked all means of contact. Jihoon, on the other hand, explained his actions, claiming they've been threatening him and his South Korean translators.

Jihoon Now in Massive Debt?

Shortly after parting ways with his team, Jihoon Lee took to Instagram and shared intriguing updates about his legal bout. The 90 Day Fiance cast member claimed he's been ripped off by his team.

He shared screenshots of an invoice from his former attorney's law firm. The documents showed a very detailed breakdown of his expenses since the first day he received their services.

The 90 Day Fiance star appeared to be in disbelief as the amount he supposedly owed reached a staggering $11, 637.44. Some of the services that were charged on the reality star include numerous document preparations and e-mail responses, each cost $250.

Jihoon Lee was also charged as much as $400 for document translations. The father of one also has to pay over $4,000 to his lawyer's office staff who monitored and collected information related to his case.

90 Day Fiance Star Claims He's Been Ripped Off

Jihoon Lee is now "confused" as to why he ended up with such debt. The 90 Day Fiance celeb pointed out that his former team, initially said they're doing it out of goodwill.

"Weetea(Amber), she said it was for free and volunteer," he added. "She asked for money more than my attorney Joe. Wow." He was referring to another member of his team in the U.S.

The 90 Day Fiance dad also questioned the price of the services he received. Jihoon implied that it's a bit pricey, especially for just three months' worth of work for him.

"Total 28,699.44. Gofundme 17,062.00. Owed 11,637.44. All for 3 months?" he asked. It's unclear if Jihoon will be able to pay the money he supposedly owed his former team.

Despite the situation, Jihoon Lee seems eager to continue the fight on his own. "I'd rather do it myself," he told his fans. "Thank you for your help guys."
