(Please file this story under “Report” until it can be confirmed!)
The Duggar Family thought it had finally escaped the scandal surrounding their eldest son Josh but it looks like there’s more trouble headed their way!
As we previously reported, Josh admitted last year to molesting four of his sisters and one “family friend” when he was a young teenager. At the time, not much information was given about Josh’s fifth victim except that she was a sometimes babysitter of the Duggar clan, and was underage at the time of the incident(s?)
Well, the “family friend” may be ready to come forward. In Touch Weekly (which is credited with blowing the lid off the molestation story) is now reporting that an unnamed 28-year-old woman who lives near Josh’s hometown in Arkansas is ready to come forward about her molestation at the hands of Josh Duggar.
“After last year’s revelations about Josh’s molestation scandal, word got around that there was another girl who said she’d been abused by Josh when she was a teenager,” a source told In Touch. “The Duggars knew the girl. Michelle was terrified when she heard that this girl was talking about what Josh had done.”
(Please note that it has not been confirmed if this is the known fifth victim of Josh, or an additional alleged victim.)
According to the source, Jim Bob and Michelle immediately went into damage control mode and scheduled a meeting with the girl and her parents. The girls’ parents told the Duggars that they would not be pressing charges and they were not out for any money.
While the girl and her family don’t want Josh’s money, they do want the Duggars to know that what Josh allegedly did has had long-lasting effects on the girl. According to the article, the girl rebelled after being allegedly molested by Josh, leaving home as soon as she became an adult.
The source also claims that when the news of Josh’s molestation scandal broke last year, it turned the girl into an “emotional wreck.”
So far, the woman is keeping her identity a secret and has yet to speak out publicly about her ordeal. There have long been rumors as to who Josh’s fifth victim was. It has been said that the girl was a daughter of another prominent family in the Duggars’ religion, and that it was a girl who Josh had been in a short courtship with. None of these rumors have been confirmed, and The Ashley will not name these girls or the family that she is rumored to be a part of, since they are just rumors.)
Anyway, while the girls’ parents told Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar that no legal action would be taken at the time of the incident, it is unclear if the girl could still press charges down the line. In Touch is also reporting that she could be in the process of writing a tell-all book. However, this has not been confirmed either.
Meanwhile, Josh seems to be working to repair his marriage with his wife, Anna. As The Ashley reported last month, Josh and Anna revealed that they are still struggling in their marriage after Josh’s confessions. (Aside from molesting his sisters, he also admitted to picking up women on dating websites and having an addiction to p*rnography.)
The couple says they are currently in professional marriage and family counseling.
“It isn’t easy and some days are very difficult,” Josh and Anna wrote in a statement regarding their marriage. “It is a long road to rebuild trust and a truly healthy relationship. We are very thankful for God’s forgiveness, grace, and help, as it is our strength and guide to rebuilding our lives. As the future unfolds, we are taking one day at a time and we are grateful for your continued prayers for both of us and our sweet children.”
The Duggar family has not yet commented on this new claim of a fifth victim of Josh’s coming forward.
Josh looks very feminine
I don’t care about Gosh or his slave by choice Anna.
A life has been changed forever for the bad. That woman deserves justice.
I am surprised you haven’t posted any article aboutJingers courtship to a pro soccer player
Wheres the TM2 recap???? Wahhhhh ?
He’s a nasty pig and that’s all he’ll ever be.
Josh is a nasty vile hypocrite…And Anna sits just as low as this scum bag by staying with him…She thinks nothing of her own children’s safety…Mark my words,more negative stuff will come out and happen with this selfish family…
I think that Anna knew all along, but there’s something going on with her that also makes her “damaged goods” in that crazy (to me) religion of theirs, so this was going to be the best she was ever going to get. So it isn’t that she’s staying with him because she wants to, but because she has to.
Though I wonder if maybe it was her or someone in her family is one of the mystery victims?
I wish this pervert would crawl into a hole and disappear
Perhaps if he is left to run amok through society long enough, some enraged parent will see to that after he molests more kids.. the vile piece of shit. Apparently not one of his victims can or will press charges against his pedo ass so he’ll just be left to ripen (because we all know there is no cure for this) until he strikes again, either against his own kids or someone elses.
But… yaaaaaa TLC, lets keep supporting this sicko clan of creeps! Woohoo!!
I feel badly for Anna…the licks keep coming for that poor girl 🙁
You feel sorry for his wife?????? She is disgusting for staying with him
I don’t think she’s disgusting for staying. Would I stay given I walk in the same shoes. Heck no…but this is her choice, not yours.
I have some friends who have been married for a year…she cheated on him while they were married. Not just one time…THREE times. And from that came a baby, who is not his.
He chose to remain married, and to adopt the baby. I’m pretty appalled by her choice, and remain in slight awe of his choice to stay and work things through. Do I think HE is disgusting because he chose to stay? Absolutely not. I tend to think she is pretty sick because of what she did…not once, but three times. He knew what she did, and he chose to stay. Just because his choice is not mine, that doesn’t make HIM the disgusting one.
Anna choosing to stay doesn’t make HER disgusting…it makes her making a different decision than you would. Josh is the one that made the terrible choice to do what he did…therefore, I feel bad for Anna. It would take just one time for me…and it did. My ex husband cheated on me, and theres a reason the ex is in front of the husband now. I wouldn’t make the same decision to stay, but there is nothing wrong with people who give their mates another chance.
Cheating on someone and having a penchant for touching kids is quite the difference though. It’s one thing to subject yourself to mistreatment.. another to subject your kids to it.
There is no cure for what ails Josh, He’s a special kind of twisted. Once he “slipped” in the marriage after Anna married him supposedly knowing about his “past transgressions” (gah! the fact she still married him boggles me!)and how he “changed and got help” and he was “young”, blah, blah, blah… then he went and did all this…that should have spoken volumes about his ability to bullshit. Now her kids are in the line of fire, and she is being plain stupid.
No feels for Anna. She needs to a mother first and a wife second.
Not sure if I’m understanding this correctly but is this article saying that the non-related family didn’t press charges either when all this originally happened? That’s just wrong! It was wrong for the Duggars to hide it but for this other family to not press charges seems even worse. If this story gets confirmed then, that’s just horrible. Sounds like the family may want $ now too. Poor girl should have been able to get her vengence through the legal system and also get real help.
That’s what has been implied. My money is on a fellow church member whose family put the image of the church over their daughter’s well being.
Time this filth was jailed and the parents for confining it.
Get this filth off the media and stop funding their sick lives
Condoning it I mean
I don’t think this is going to be the last time we hear of a new victim of Josh’s coming forward. When this sort of thing is not dealt with swiftly and appropriately in the beginning by trained professionals the problem doesn’t go away on its own. It just grows.
I feel so bad for Anna. She feels like she’s trapped in that mess and divorce is not an option. He is the only Dugger male to leave his parent’s compound. I wonder what kind of shit storm is going to come next. Statistically 2 of those boys are gay. Oh! And didn’t Josh do coke with some stripper and get rough with her too?
Apparently if we feel badly for Anna, it’s not popular opinion here…see my post above 🙂
I know Anna and Josh were in a courtship for some time prior before their engagement and marriage and they got married when he was 22. Anna said Josh told her about him his “past” at the beginning of their courtship. It only leads me believe that Anna knows the family of this young lady and maybe the Duggars only told Anna and her family out of obligation rather than guilt and to be truthful of who he is.
