It seems like Anna Duggar might have finally had enough her husband’s scandals. The star of TLC’s Jill And Jessa: Counting On is reportedly planning to divorce her husband, disgraced former reality TV star Josh Duggar, after his bombshell molestation and Ashley Madison scandals last year.
Anna opened up about how she’s handled Josh’s infidelity and scandals in previous episodes of Counting On. She told cameras that she had turned to her faith in God to help her forgive him and fix their 7-year marriage. But according to a new report by In Touch Weekly, Anna is done and ready to move on from her cheating husband.
“She will see a lawyer in the next few weeks to have divorce papers drawn up so she can rid herself of Josh,” an insider said, according to the Daily Mail.
The oldest son of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar fell from grace last May when it was revealed that he had molested five girls—including four of his younger sisters—as a teenager, which later resulted in the cancellation of the family’s hit reality TV series, TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting.
Then last August, Josh was involved in another scandal when a large scale hack of the website Ashley Madison revealed that the 28-year-old former reality star had multiple accounts on the online dating site that helps married people seek out partners for extramarital affairs. Shortly after that, he revealed that he struggled with a porn addiction and entered a faith-based rehab center for six months.
Anna, a 28-year-old devout Christian, reportedly decided to leave Josh after some concerned friends reached out to her. They told her they were worried that she was being pressured by Josh’s parents to go on Counting On and help boost his image.
“Hearing those outside views changed Anna incredibly,” sources told In Touch. “[Anna] agrees and feels angry that Josh has treated her so appallingly for so long.”
The mom-of-four (Anna shares 7-year-old Mackynzie, 5-year-old Michael, 3-year-old Marcus and 15-month-old Meredith with Josh) allegedly has arrangements to meet with a lawyer and will file for divorce soon.
