So shocking. Josh Duggar allegedly paid for two memberships to cheating website Ashley Madison, which was uncovered in a hack of the site. The ’19 Kids and Counting’ star allegedly spent almost $1K on the accounts, according to a new report.
The eldest Duggar son is in hot water…again. Josh Duggar, 27, was reportedly paying for not one, but two accounts on Ashley Madison, a website specifically designed for cheating spouses. The site was hacked in July, reportedly revealing that the father of four and husband of Anna Duggar allegedly signed up for one night stands and oral sex. Find out all the shocking details.
According to Gawker, a credit card under the name Joshua J. Duggar was used to pay for the account, which cost $986.76 from Feb. 2013 to May 2015. The address linked to the card was allegedly Josh’s Fayetteville, Arkansas home, which has been featured on his family’s reality show, 19 Kids and Counting. That wasn’t the only account Josh reportedly had. He allegedly opened another account using his address in Oxon Hill, Maryland, where he allegedly spent time lobbying for the Family Research Council.
According to the data in the report, Josh was allegedly seeking an extramarital partner that was interested in: “Oral Sex,” “Open to Experimentation,” “Someone I Can Teach” and “Sharing Fantasies.” You can see the whole shocking list here. But his partner also needed to have “natural breasts,” a “high sex drive,” and a “petite” body, among other things. See Josh’s alleged list of turn-ons here.
Update: In a statement posted on Aug. 20 to the official Duggar family website, Josh admitted that he has been “the biggest hypocrite ever.” Josh said he has been “viewing pornography on the internet” for the last “several years,” and this secret addiction led him to be “unfaithful to [his] wife.” Josh said he was “so ashamed of the double life that I have been living,” before apologizing for the “pain and disgrace [his] sin has caused [his] wife and family.” Read the rest of the statement here.
19 Kids and Counting was canceled in July after Josh admitted to molesting five underage girls. He apologized for his actions in May in a series of statements, saying he “deeply regretted” what he had done. Josh’s wife, Anna, gave birth to their fourth child, daughter Meredith Grace Duggar, on July 19, and Josh has been sharing regular updates of their family on social media.
