A new victim is speaking out and admitting that Josh Duggar molested her years ago. This woman is coming forward now, even though she is in her 20s, and saying that Josh did things to her a long time ago. Hollywood Life talked about the cover story from In Touch Weekly, that shared the details of what went down. The woman who is 28 now says that Josh did this to her years ago, but for some reason, she is just now coming forward. The fact that other girls came forward may have helped her to feel comfortable saying something.
A source shared the details with In Touch magazine about what happened.
“After last year’s revelations about Josh’s molestation scandal, word got around that there was another girl who said she’d been abused by Josh when she was a teenager. The Duggars knew the girl. Michelle was terrified when she heard that this girl was talking about what Josh had done.”
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar heard the news and, of course, jumped in to try and solve things. They did not want a lawsuit or any more bad news about Josh coming out. They called her parents and set up a meeting right away to talk things out. They did reassure the Duggars that a lawsuit would not be happening, but this didn’t keep this information from being leaked by someone. Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar met with her parents instead of actually meeting with the girl.
This girl went through a hard time after this all went down with Josh Duggar. She rebelled against her parents and even moved out at a young age. When the news came out about Josh Duggar’s scandal last year, it made her an emotional wreck, according to the source. So far, her name has not been revealed, and she isn’t talking about what went down.
Us Magazine recently shared that Anna Duggar is sharing that it has been a hard road for her without her husband Josh around. The latest episode of Jill & Jessa: Counting On was about the girls going on a trip to Branson, and this was all right before Josh Duggar returned home from rehab. Anna revealed how rough it had been with him in rehab and how she was coping.
“Josh is about to finish up his program, so I’m really excited about that. I can definitely look back on the past few months and say it’s been a hard road, but it’s been a good road, and I know there’s still a lot of work. I think it’s daily [that] there’s going to be a lot of work, and there kind of is a long process ahead, but we’ll just take it one day at a time and keep trusting God and do the next right thing. There’s a lot of little steps before it’s where it needs to be.”
Now Josh Duggar is back at home and with the family. Anna and Josh are trying to work out their marriage problems, but there haven’t been many updates since he returned home. This couple has been through a lot and hopefully, Anna heard about the other girl saying that Josh molested her before it hit the news. This could shatter her world if she was to find out about another girl now that they are trying to fix their problems.
