The news, while shocking, is confusing because in previous updates (via cheat sheet) that Jihoon has blocked her on social media as well as her phone number.

The history between Deavan and Jihoon as it has apparently been since hers 90 day fiance Debut, is complicated. The good news is that 3-year-old Taeyang has a two-year treatment plan for his cancer that can ultimately have a high success rate of a full recovery in five years. The family has a fundraiser which details Taeyang’s situation and is asking for donations to help with his medical expenses as Deavan noted that much of the money she was making went towards the custody hearings. Hopefully this situation will improve and Taeyang can eventually return to his normal life.
