Jill and Derick Dillard lawyered up to get back pay from Jim Bob

It’s a rare win for Jill and Derick Dillard — and an impressive one, considering it came at the expense of Jill’s all-controlling father, Jim Bob Duggar. According to Jill and Derick, they managed to wrangle some of Jill’s back pay from her reality TV days out of Jim Bob’s hands after hiring a lawyer to lead their fight.

The frequency with which he’s started speaking out against Jim Bob Duggar would seem to suggest that we might be getting a Derick Dillard book after all. Derick, whose views on the transgender community remain not great, has started using his social media platforms to attack the Duggar family patriarch more often, now that Counting On has returned with new episodes.

That sort of arrangement could explain a lot, including The Dilllards' falling out with TLC as well as Derick and Jill continuing to ask for donations to help pay for his enrollment in a missionary program.
