A fan asked Derick, 30, on Instagram about how payment works for Counting On after he did several impromptu Q&A and claimed Jim Bob stole his kid’s money and negotiated their contracts. “So do you mean to say that none of the Duggar children ever got paid for being on the show? Or are you saying that you believed they weren’t paid enough for their efforts?” the fan asked.

Derick claimed, “I’ve previously mentioned volunteerism as it relates to our past work with the show, and volunteer means volunteer. While we began as volunteers, it eventually became apparent that it wasn’t even volunteerism.”

“Because typically volunteerism assumes that you can leave without serious risks, such as legal/financial threats, in addition to the extreme emotional pressure from within and without your family, which unfortunately ended with painful burning of bridges just so that you can protect your family,” he added.

Derick’s response comes after he previously claimed that he wasn’t aware that Jim Bob and Michelle’s children were eligible to be paid. “For a long time, Jill and I were under the impression that the family didn’t make any money from the show, but, rather, it was presented to us as something that was done as a ministry that TLC periodically subsidized in the form of reimbursements for things like gas, restaurants, travel, etc … but not any actual pay on top of that,” he wrote in the past.
