According to RadarOnline, Jim Bob’s sister Deanna, the mother of Amy Duggar, once filed a restraining order against her husband Terry Jordan when he threatened her and her newborn.

“He said he was going to kick my a** if I don’t allow him to see redacted,” the court papers said. “I had just delivered redacted, Terry came into my hospital room and said I should kill you and the baby.”
