The entire Duggar family who were made famous by their TLC show 19 Kids and Counting are still reeling from a huge scandal, which resulted in the cancelation of their popular series after it was revealed that the eldest son Josh Duggar had molested at least five underage girls (some his own sisters) when he was a teenager.
Now, his name is at the center of yet another controversy as there are claims that Duggar, 27, had a paid account on Ashley Madison, a website in which married people find someone to cheat on their spouse with.
Hackers recently released stolen data from the website, including email addresses from the site’s users and reports from Gawker indicate they found a credit card matching his name, stating, “someone using a credit card belonging to Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches the home in Fayetteville, Arkansas owned by his grandmother Mary… paid a total of $986.76 for two different Ashley Madison subscriptions.”
Meanwhile, Avid Life Media, which owns the website, has stated that the email addresses are not verified meaning anyone could use any email address, even a made up one to sign up.
Although it is not confirmed that it is in fact the famous Josh Duggar who signed up, the two account payments do match his locations as his second account, which was activated in July 2014, was linked to an address in Oxon Hill, Maryland, where he moved with his wife Anna and their young children.
A representative for the Duggars has not commented on the reports.
