Drama, drama, drama! The past few months for the Duggar family have been filled with controversy, lawsuits, business fails, and lots and lots of bashing! With all the recent chaos surrounding their lives, it’d be safe to assume that the family is in uncharted waters dealing with scandals nearly every day. Click through the gallery to find out the nine reasons why the Duggar bunch is in crisis like never before!
The world isn’t letting Josh Duggar forget about his past, despite his family’s forgiveness. In March, Josh’s dark past was dredged up AGAIN, after the soon-to-be father of five was hit with a lawsuit accusing him of stealing a stranger’s identity to maintain his secret online persona on Ashley Madison, OKCupid, and Twitter. Not only that, just a few weeks later, Josh was additionally called to testify in the lawsuit against him. According to the plaintiff’s lawyer, Josh will have to discuss not only his infidelity but also his molestation scandal. With all of this looming it’s safe to assume the family is definitely feeling the pressure.
Josh is also dealing with a failing business. As RadarOnline.com recently reported, the disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star is “not doing very well” as a car salesman — in fact, he recently let a guy drive off with one of his cars!
Also at the top of the crises list is Josiah Duggar’s ex-girlfriend’s tell-all book! Earlier this month, and a whole two years after her split from Josiah, which directly followed the exposure of his Josh’s molestation scandal, Marjorie Jackson published a book, Devoted, that seemed to indirectly, but directly, slam Josh, for his “moral failures.”
Jill Duggar and her husband Derick Dillard have been facing a lot of backlash after Derick called their two-year-old son manipulative. At the height of their bashing, the couple’s parenting skills were even drawn into question.
Jill and Derick have also been dealing with the passing of Derick’s grandfather, who died while they were on their 3-month long mission trip in El Salvador.
Jill and Derick’s mission trip was a series of unfortunate events! Just days after Derick’s grandfather passed, the couple buried their friend, who was kidnapped and later found dead only days after visiting with them.
Jinger Duggar wore pants! The newlywed’s departure from the family’s strict dress code is definitely a sign of a shift in the family dynamic.
Preaching scandal! In April, Jim Bob and Michelle were accused of blaming Josh’s infidelity on his wife Anna after discussing a woman’s duty in marriage at a Christian conference. The couple then faced an overwhelming amount of bashing, as their comments did not sit well with a lot of Duggar fans.
Joy-Anna is dealing with a weight loss scandal. After recently sharing a pic of herself looking noticeably thinner, on the family Facebook page, fans expressed their concern about how she might have lost the weight. Some even accused the 19-year-old of starving herself!
