Josh Duggar checks into rehab amid new cheating scandal
PHILADELPHIA — Josh Duggar is entering a long-term treatment center for his admitted pornography addiction on the same day that InTouch Weekly published an interview with his alleged mistress, stripper and porn star Danica Dillon.
“As parents we are so deeply grieved by our son’s decisions and actions. His wrong choices have deeply hurt his precious wife and children and have negatively affected so many others. He has also brought great insult to the values and faith we hold dear,” the Duggars say in a statement on the family website.
As disappointed as the family is, they are choosing to pray for Josh as he enters into rehab as they support his wife Anna and their four children.
“We pray that in this he comes to complete repentance and sincere change. In the meantime, we will be offering our love, care and devoted support to Anna and our grandchildren as she also receives counsel and help for her own heart and future. During this time we continue to look to God — He is our rock and comfort. We ask for your continued prayers for our entire family,” the statement continues.
The news of Josh Duggar’s rehab stint comes just six days after it was discovered that he was an Ashley Madison user — a website that helps married people have affairs. Duggar apologized for the account and admitted that he had an addiction to pornography and had been unfaithful to Anna.
Now InTouch has found Duggar’s alleged mistress and she’s ready to tell all about their affair.
According to Dillon’s interview, which InTouch reports was conducted under a polygraph, she had sex with Duggar twice during his wife Anna’s pregnancy with the couple’s fourth child. Duggar found Dillon working at the Gold Club in Philadelphia, Penn.
“He walked into the Gold Club like a normal patron and said he’d been a fan for a long time and has watched my career grow — he even said from before my boob job until recently — and that he loved watching my very first scene on [an adult website],” she says “Then it got creepy.”
Dillon goes on to say that Duggar paid for $600 in private dances and then asked how they could spend the night together. Dillon claims she and Duggar had sex the night he came to the Gold Club and again a month later, and that he paid her thousands of dollars after each meeting.
She also claims that Duggar was rough with her — though the sex as always consensual — and did not use protection during their time together.
“He was manhandling me, basically tossing me around like I was a rag doll,” Dillon says. “It was very traumatic. I’ve had rough sex before, but this was terrifying.”
