Jessa Duggar and Jill Duggar’s family feud still isn’t over, according to a recent report.
Reports on the sisters’ supposed dislike for one another first started surfacing after it was discovered that Jill wasn’t following Jessa on Twitter, and rumors of their sibling rivalry have spiraled out of control ever since. Now OK! Magazine is claiming that one of the 19 Kids and Counting stars’ many supposed spats involves their living arrangements.
According to the magazine’s source, Jessa Duggar is envious of the fancy house that Jill and husband Derick Dillard are living in. Jessa allegedly thinks it’s unfair that she and Ben Seewald have to live in a “secondhand house.”
“She’s used to Jill getting pampered. It doesn’t faze her at this point.”
It’s easy to see why Jessa Duggar would be jealous of her sister’s abode — Jim Bob Duggar gifted his second-oldest daughter with a $1.5 million, four-bedroom home after her June wedding (Jim Bob owned the property because he failed to flip it). Jessa’s wedding gift wasn’t quite as generous — she and Ben Seewald are currently occupying the “tiny tract home” where Josh Duggar and his wife Anna used to live. According to the Duggar Family Blog, it’s a two-bedroom, 960-square-foot cottage.
Jim Bob allegedly gifted Jill and Derick Dillard with the larger, 4,000-square-foot home because the 19 Kids and Counting patriarch believes that the couple will “fill that house with babies.” Perhaps he doesn’t think Jessa Duggar is as interested in producing grandkids as her sister is.
It’s also possible that Jessa believes she would have been given the larger home if she had married first — there had to be some reason she was in a rush to beat her sister to the altar.
According to Radar Online, a source told OK! that Jessa and Ben Seewald were not happy that Jill and Derick Dillard got married first. They started dating months before Jill and Derick did, so they felt that they should have wed before the Dillards. Jessa Duggar was allegedly irritated by all the attention that her sister received when she got married.
“Jessa is envious that Jill was the first Duggar daughter to get married.”
Jessa Duggar also felt like Jill stole her thunder when she got pregnant so soon after getting married — her wedding had to share the spotlight with Jill’s pregnancy. Because of this, the OK! source claims that all Jessa wants for Christmas is a positive pregnancy test (but would she really want to take the attention away from Jesus on his birthday?).
There’s a very good chance that these sister feud rumors aren’t true at all. As the Inquisitr previously reported, the sisters and their husbands have actually gone on a double date together since the rumors started. Jessa also didn’t leave Jill out of her holiday greeting on Instagram.
Jessa might bear Jill no ill will, but you can see evidence of the 22-year-old being treated like a second-class Duggar in the video below — the other adults get to relax on comfy couches while Jessa and Ben Seewald have to sit on hard piano benches off in the corner (but at least they didn’t get quarantined off in the mailroom like poor Jana).
Do you think Jill and Jessa Duggar are really feuding, or are stories of their sibling rivalry just fairy tales?
