The former Amy Duggar and her husband Dillon King are denying that they're the source of rumors about Anna Duggar's fifth pregnancy. While the eldest son of the family of reality show stars reportedly sits in rehab for sex addiction, his cousin and her husband have started to take on the onslaught of social media criticism, which doesn't stop at Josh or his parents, but extends to all who use the Duggar name as a claim to fame.
King has been arguing for much of this week that that label doesn't apply to him. He's not a Duggar, and says that marrying into the family "...doesn't mean I don't have a job."
He isn't stopping at that, though. He has engaged in arguments with several on social media who've asked him why, if he doesn't mean to capitalize on his wife's cousins' fame, he and Amy have asked for donations, and for fans to talk TLC into supporting a wedding special for the couple. King denies being affected by the cancellation of 19 Kids And Counting.
Amy also posted on Instagram later, providing fans with an address to send "cards and etc." and promising a hand-written letter for anyone who sent anything.
That's not all King is denying though. The Duggar-in-law is responding to critical comments viewers posted weeks ago as well, and not all of the comments are about Amy and Dillon's status, or lack thereof, as a "public figure."
Not only does King deny that he and Amy are the source of tales of Anna's purported pregnancy, but he also further says that they don't even know if it's true.
"...the person I had known my entire life turned out to be a fraud, and a complete stranger."
It seems likely there will be more denials to come, though, since as of Friday, Dillon was still responding to posts on the King couple's shared "public figure" Facebook page, arguing that he and Amy aren't grifters and don't seek free gifts.
