Josh Duggar is reportedly now allowed to have visitors and can leave the Reformers Unanimous rehab center for the holidays — sparking rumors that the disgraced 19 Kids And Counting star has left rehab before completing the rigorous six-month program. The Duggar family flew to the rehab center, but stayed just hours.
According to Radar Online, the Duggar clan flew to the Christian-based rehab center in Rockford, Illinois, in their private jet to visit Josh. Although website Christian Today claims the Duggar family jet landed nowhere near the sex rehab center, Radar Online points out that FlightAware logged that they landed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just a little over an hour away from Josh.
The International Business Times reports the flight was also logged by Rockford Scanner. The flight arrived in the morning, and took off at 2:30 p.m. the same day.
In the Bible-based rehab center, Josh has had to wake up at 4:30 a.m. every day, and spend 10 hours working in order to become rehabilitated for his professed sex addiction. He has also had to attend daily prayer as part of his treatment.
Josh Duggar entered the center after confessing he cheated on his wife, Anna, by using the infidelity website, Ashley Madison. Josh had not one, but two, separate accounts with the site.
According to Radar Online, the Duggar clan spent less than 24 hours at the rehab center, sparking rumors that Josh left before completing the six-month program. It is not clear which members of the Duggar family visited Josh, although wife Anna was expected to make the trip.
Pilot John David lifted off Jim Bob’s private plane from the Chicago/Rockford International Airport the day after they landed. Their final destination was the Duggar family home in Springdale, Arkansas, Radar reports.
Radar Online reached out to Reformer’s Unanimous for a comment, but the rehab center did not respond.
Josh and Anna Duggar became famous thanks to the popularity of the TLC show 19 Kids And Counting, but was quickly disgraced after admitting he molested five teenage girls when he was underage. Reports quickly surfaced that two of his victims were his sisters, Jessa and Jill.
In August, 2015, Josh was further humiliated when hackers revealed he also had accounts with the infidelity website, Ashley Madison, cementing Josh as a tabloid favorite. TLC quickly cancelled 19 Kids And Counting.
Rumors quickly spread that Anna, who is married to Josh, is considering a divorce from the conservative Christian, and according to Hollywood Life, Josh is desperate to win Anna back. According to Hollywood Life, Josh Duggar proposed that he and Anna have another child in order to save their marriage.
The rumor began after Hollywood Life interviewed a source who confessed that “Josh is so worried that Anna will leave him,” and has become convinced that “if he can persuade her they should have another child together,” Anna will forget about divorcing him.
As Hollywood Life points out, Anna has been a single parent for the past few months, although she likely has been getting plenty of help from the close-knit Duggar clan. But the source highlighted that Anna Duggar “knows that having another child is not going to fix their marriage.”
It’s not clear if Josh and Anna Duggar have even spoken since Josh entered rehab, since he was not allowed to have contact with the outside world and couldn’t have visitors until recently.
Meanwhile, Jim Bob has reportedly bought Josh and Anna Duggar a new home, since Jessa and Ben are living in their old home, and he “wants to see them back together” when Josh leaves rehab. Anna isn’t buying it, however, and she “feels like they are more concerned with image than with the reality of the situation.”
