Two years after Josh Duggar admitted to cheating on his wife, Anna, and harboring a secret pornography addiction, the disgraced right-wing activist, reality star and rehab alum can’t seem to leave his dark past behind him.
Duggar, who just announced he’s expecting his fifth child with Anna, has been served with a lawsuit by Los Angeles-based DJ Matt McCarthy.
According to Los Angeles Superior Court documents obtained by Radar, the 29-year-old was slapped with the papers at 4:45 pm on March 13 in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, where he reportedly works as a used car salesman. (Duggar has not appeared on his sisters’ 19 And Counting spinoff series, Counting On, following his scandals.)
McCarthy originally filed the lawsuit in August 2016, claiming Duggar used his personal photos for his secret profiles on cheating site Ashley Madison, in addition to dating site OkCupid and even Twitter before the conservative Christian was caught sneaking around in 2015.
The DJ and high-end bartender said he was fired from a gig, and suffered “anxiety, depression, embarrassment, humiliation, loss of self-esteem and extreme and severe mental anguish and emotional distress” relating to the incident.
He is seeking damages and compensation for past and future earnings lost in the scandal.
As Radar extensively reported, Duggar was further disgraced when an uncovered police report revealed that he was accused of molesting five family members, including at least two of his own sisters, as a teenager. The family’s TLC show was canceled in the subsequent public uproar, and he never returned to reality TV.
In Touch was first to report that Duggar was served with the lawsuit.
