Lee and Pokwang are facing a legal battle following their separation in November 2021.

Pokwang filed a petition for deportation against Lee in June this year. According to entertainment reporter MJ Marfori, her camp "claims that O'Brian was using a tourist visa while working in the country for the past eight years."

Lee, meanwhile, filed his reply to the deportation complaint on June 26. In an interview shared by Marfori, the actor appealed to the Philippine government and the Bureau of Immigration to look at the case in line with his deportation and visa cancellation “fairly and with justice” as he noted that the complainant is “very well-known” and “very influential” in the country.

The former couple got to know each other in 2014 while working on the film Edsa Woolworth. They welcomed Malia in 2018, and separated three years later.

While Pokwang initially said they were on good terms, she later revealed in a February interview with Boy Abunda that a business problem led to their fallout and that they were no longer speaking to each other even before their confrontation.
