Josh Duggar is still being haunted by the molestation and cheating scandals he got entangled in two years ago. He was sued by Matthew McCarthy, a DJ, for allegedly using his photos in Josh’s accounts on Ashley Madison websites.
According to the Hollywood Gossip, it seems that the court will not rule in favor of McCarthy. Because of that, the DJ is dragging the names of Ashely Madison executives into his suit against the eldest Duggar son. Radar Online reported that according to legal paperwork, the owners of the cheating website have received a subpoena to testify against Josh Duggar. McCarthy believes they have pertinent information that would reveal more details about Josh’s use of the site that could be helpful to his case.
McCarthy sued Josh in August last year, claiming that his wrongful use of his photo cost him his job. He has also been called “DJ Duggar” and “Duggar’s boy toy.” More so, being raised as a Catholic, the unwanted association with the Duggars made it even more embarrassing for him that his image has been associated with infidelity, according to Cosmopolitan.
The DJ, who goes by the name MVRK, is reportedly seeking $25,000 in damages. Josh Duggar appeared in court in April and sought to dismiss the case against him. His next court appearance is said to be scheduled for June 22.
McCarthy said, “Initially, I just kind of thought it was funny. But then I started reading. Now that I’ve found out that this guy’s a child molester, and he’s unfaithful and all those other things — it’s awful!”
Josh was also sued in 2015 by a former sex worker named Danica Dillon who claimed to have suffered injury and trauma for engaging in sexual activities with the disgraced Duggar son. The case had been dismissed because there was a lack of evidence to support her claims.
Josh Duggar had admitted to molesting young girls as a teen, including four of his sisters. And then the hacking of the Ashley Madison website revealed that the reality star had two paid accounts. He later confessed to cheating on his wife, Anna, and entered a faith-based rehab to address his issues. This led to the cancellation of the Duggar family’s reality show, 19 Kids and Counting.
A few months after, a spin-off was released, Jill & Jessa: Counting On, which focused on the adult Duggar sisters. Counting On has just returned for its Season 3 on TLC on Monday, June 12. There were rumors that Josh would appear on the show after staying out of the public eye since the scandals.
