Devout Christian Anna Duggar is considering divorce -- that is, if rumors are to be believed. Her husband, former “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar, reportedly cheated on her with a second porn star and the embarrassment might be too much for the Florida native to handle, Life & Style wrote in an exclusive report Wednesday via Hollywood Life.
Porn star Danica Dillon was the first woman to claim she was one of Josh Duggar’s mistresses. When a second unnamed person came forward, it made Anna Duggar "feel disgusting.” Her brothers and sisters advised her to split from Josh Duggar. “[Anna] is really starting to believe that divorce is the only option,” an insider told Life & Style. “Her siblings wants her to leave and are hoping her time in Florida will help give her clarity.”
The couple, both 27, have four children: Mackynzie, 5; Michael, 4; Marcus, 2; and Meredith, 2 months. Since Josh Duggar has been away at an undisclosed rehab facility to treat a sex addiction, the older children have noticed his absence.
“The kids have begun to question where Daddy is,” said the source. “But he wasn’t around that much, so it’s not that unusual,” referencing the “work” trips the embattled TLC reality star took away from his family.
There are only two supposed mistresses who have come forward, but celebrity psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw said he wouldn’t be surprised if more women came forward. “I just don’t believe that the whole truth has come out yet,” the television personality said on ABC’s “The View” last month. “To assume that everything you see is everything there is would really be naive.”
TLC suspended “19 Kids and Counting” in May after Josh Duggar admitted that years earlier he had molested several girls, including some of his sisters; in July, the network announced that the show was canceled. And in August, he was revealed to be a client of the adultery-enabling website Ashley Madison. But Duggar's sisters Jill Dillard and Jessa Seewald are to set to get a spinoff TLC series with their husbands and children.
