Josh Duggar of TLC’s now canceled show “19 Kids and Counting,” had a paid account with Ashley Madison, according to Gawker.
When hackers released information from Ashley Madison, a site created for married spouses looking to have an affair, a credit card under the name Joshua J. Duggar from Fayetteville, Ark., showed up.
Duggar apparently paid a total of $986.76 for two different subscriptions to Ashley Madison from February 2013 to May 2015.
Duggar is no stranger to controversy. Last May, the conservative reality TV star was accused of molesting five girls, four of which were his sisters.
Never miss a local story.
After the news broke, Duggar was forced to resign from his postition as the executive director of the Family Research Council and posted this to his family’s Facebook page:
“Twelve years ago, as a young teenager I acted inexcusably for which I am extremely sorry and deeply regret,” Duggar wrote. “ I hurt others, including my family and close friends. I confessed this to my parents who took several steps to help me address the situation. We spoke with the authorities where I confessed my wrongdoing and my parents arranged for me and those affected by my actions to receive counseling. I understood that if I continued down this wrong road that I would end up ruining my life. I sought forgiveness from those I had wronged and asked Christ to forgive me and come into my life. I would do anything to go back to those teen years and take different actions. In my life today, I am so very thankful for God’s grace, mercy and redemption.”
Duggar’s wife backed him at the time, claiming he had found new direction in his life.
We wonder what she has to say about his latest scandal.
