Josh Duggar Forced to Testify in Court About Ashley Madison Cheating Scandal
Josh Duggar’s past is coming back to haunt him!
But now, his 2015 cheating scandal is being dragged into court — as will he!
Life & Style reveals the 29-year-old will be questioned under oath for his involvement with extramarital affairs website Ashley Madison two years ago.
But why is this coming up now?
Well, in an attempt to hide his identity, the conservative father of four used a pic of an L.A.-based man, Matthew McCarthy, for his profile photo.
The professional DJ was understandably not happy with his image being used without his permission, thus connecting him to this very public scandal.
Because of this, Matthew is suing, and his lawyer Michelle Iarusso hopes to find out exactly how deep the deception ran.
“We need to know if there are people out there who think that they have been in touch with our client, because Josh was pretending to be him,” she tells the mag.
It’s not just the cheating he’s concerned about — there’s also the uncovered police report revealing a teenaged Josh’s alleged molestation of five family members, including two sisters.
“That makes my client’s forced association with Duggar all the more painful for him,” Matthew’s attorney continues.
She states, “He certainly would rather not have been associated with a child molester. And prospective employers didn’t like it, either.”
In addition to spinning as a DJ, the California resident also works as a bartender, and he maintains his career opportunities have been limited since his photo went up on the site.
He not only was fired from one job, but he alleges he also suffered “anxiety, depression, embarrassment, humiliation, loss of self-esteem and extreme and severe mental anguish and emotional distress.”
The plaintiff is seeking damages and compensation for past and future earnings lost from his connection to the scandal.
