Months after Josh Duggar’s secret child molestation past was made public, he also admitted to cheating on his wife! A family therapist told HollywoodLife.com that his sexual problems date way back to his own childhood.
“He needed major help back then and now,” family therapist Steven Ornstein told HollywoodLife.com about Josh Duggar after the 19 Kids And Counting star admitted to cheating on his wife! Find out what Steven thinks could be the major root to Josh’s sexual problems.
“His sexual problems today stem from unresolved sexual problems from the past. We don’t know if he himself was a victim of molestation? If these issues are not dealt with they persist and get worse. He obviously didn’t undergo any type of professional therapy when he was caught molesting his sisters and other young girls. He needed major help back then and now,” family therapist Steven Ornstein told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
In case you missed it, Josh admitted to cheating on his wife in a statement released August 20:
Statement from Josh Duggar:
I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.
I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old, and now I have re-broken their trust. The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings. As I am learning the hard way, we have the freedom to choose to our actions, but we do not get to choose our consequences. I deeply regret all hurt I have caused so many by being such a bad example. I humbly ask for your forgiveness. Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time.
Alterations have been made to the statement above on the Duggar’s family blog. There no longer is the sentence containing the following: “I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction.” No info on who deleted that part or why is known at this moment.
