Josh Duggar Apologizes For Extra-Marital Affair

Disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star Josh Duggar has been embroiled in scandal for months, and his most recent revelation is pretty much rock bottom.

In a statement on the family website, Duggar admitted to having an extra-marital affair and a porn addiction after the Ashley Madison data dump revealed that the 27-year-old had a registered account.

A group of hackers known as the Impact Team breached the website’s private database in July, stealing private information from its 37 million users.

The hacking team threatened to release the details if Avid Life Media, which owns Ashley Madison, didn’t close down the site.

On Wednesday, Impact Team uploaded email addresses, account information and credit card details of about a million users from North America and the U.K. onto the dark web – which eventually found its way to the surface web.

Gawker, being the ambitious news site that it is, combed through all the data, searching for anything worthy of reporting on – and clearly they found what they were looking for.

In the hacked documents, Gawker discovered an account attached to the credit card of a Joshua J. Duggar registered to his former address in Arkansas. When the reports initially surfaced, the former child star denied having an affair, but admitted to having the account for simply visual purposes.

However, the self proclaimed “biggest hypocrite ever,” has changed his tune quite a bit since Wednesday.

Duggar made this statement on the family website that reads in part:

“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have been unfaithful to my wife. I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family, and most of all Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him. I have brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions.”

Duggar has edited the statement several times, going as far as deleting the crucial part where he admits to having a porn addiction.

Duggar’s pristine image was muddied back in May when In Touch magazine published a police report divulging that he had been accused of molesting five minors including his two sisters. The ensuing fallout led the cancellation of the family’s show and to his resignation from his position at the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group, where he had worked as a lobbyist.

Duggar has been married to his wife Anna for nearly seven years. Together they have four kids, including a daughter who is less than a month old.
