Just a few days ago, Josh Duggar admitted that he cheated on his wife. Many were not surprised about the news but now the media has confirmed that the disgraced 19 Kids and Counting star was not only looking for women on Ashley Madison but also created an account on the social networking site to chat with strippers and models.
According to several reports, the former TLC star created the fake Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) account just to chat with other women. Duggar is married and was recently involved in an incident that led to the cancellation of his show.
RadarOnline says Duggar used the same email to create a fake account with the name Joe Smithson. The fake account has just 32 friends, most women from Arkansas, where Josh Duggar lived with his family before moving to Washington D.C.
His name was one of the many revealed from the Ashley Madison hack, which happened a few days ago. The fake account says it was last active early last year, but it looks like it was created years ago, maybe even before he married his wife Anna.
Fake Profile and Past Incident
The profile for Smithson says he graduated in the University of Arkansas and lives in Fayetteville. One of the pictures shows Jonathan Blankfein, the son of Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein. Jonathan is a Harvard graduate and has not lived in Arkansas.
Despite all the information surfacing about Josh, the media says Anna is still with him and is standing by him. The 19 Kids and Counting star, who had his show cancelled after it was revealed that he molested five girls as a teenager, did not deny that he had an account on Ashley Madison and called himself the biggest hypocrite in a statement he posted on his website.
Almost 40 million users had their information leaked a few days ago when hackers accessed the website. Despite confirming that he had been unfaithful in the past and that he is addicted to pornography, many say she will not leave him.
A source told People magazine that there’s no way Anna will leave him. The source added that she is committed to her marriage and her children and that divorce is not going through her mind. Some sources even said that they wouldn’t be surprised if she came out and took some of the blame for the scandal.
The family was left without a show after the incident a few months ago. The series, which lasted 10 seasons, featured the Duggar family and their 19 children. The series began on September 29, 2008 and ended on May 19, 2015 when TLC finally confirmed that it was cancelled. At the time of the cancellation, the show was TLC’s most popular with over 2 million viewers per episode for season 10. The family was receiving an estimate of $25,000 to $45,000 per episode. With the incident, the family lost the show, endorsement deals, events and book deals. Estimates say this resulted in a loss of around $25 million a year.
