Leading the Duggar scandal beat again, it should be noted that InTouch magazine had previously reported on Josh seeking professional help, at what they describe as a “faith-based rehab [clinic]”, which will focus on sex addiction specifically (and this fits with Reformers Unanimous).
Josh confirmed last week that he’d had two Ashley Madison accounts – a dating site that specialises in extra-marital affairs – after his email and credit card details were amongst those leaked online.
Gawker is reporting that Josh Duggar, already at the center of a scandal that saw the family’s show 19 Kids and Counting get taken off the air on TLC, held two separate monthly subscriptions on Ashley Madison.
Before adding: “For him it will be a long journey toward wholeness and recovery”.
No matter what McCarthy decides to do, Duggar’s wife has already blamed herself for all of his wrongdoings, so Josh has that going for him.
Reports have claimed that the 27-year-old mother of Josh’s four young children will remain by his side, but RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal that one of her siblings has other ideas about the dutiful Christian wife’s next move.
Below is the full statement.
Josh Duggar serenaded his bride during their wedding in 2008 and he promised her that he’ll do his “best to be faithful and true”. During this time we continue to look to God-He is our rock and comfort.
“The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings”, stated Duggar, who in his website testament sought the public’s forgiveness and their prayers “for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time”.
“I have been the biggest hypocrite…”
Using Jonathan’s mug, which bears a slight beer google resemblance to the former reality star, Josh then befriended and chatted up bikini-clad girls mostly from Arkansas and none of them that ever caught on that the face of Joe Smithson was actually the Goldman Sach’s CEO’s son.
Jessa Duggar is turning to her faith in the face of controversy surrounding her family.
Their announcement Wednesday on the family’s website did not specify the nature or duration of treatment, nor did it identify the facility. Which brings me to the second reason I believe that Josh Duggar is involved in this scandal- he never really dealt with the sexual desires he developed as a result of a suppressed environment.
