Amy Duggar from 19 Kids and Counting was targeted by a woman in Iowa who claimed to have compromising photos of her and tried to leverage money from TLC.
Federal court documents show Teresa Hunt was arrested February 1 after she apparently sent TLC executives letters demanding that they either:
- Cancel 19 Kids and Counting, or
- Pay her $10,000 in exchange for her not releasing photos of Amy and a 56-year-old musician engaged in "apparently intimate situations."
Amy, an aspiring country singer and the 25-year-old niece of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, said in a statement that there are no compromising photos of her with the musician, whom she has known for quite some time as a friend.
"It's totally untrue. He is a longtime family friend who has always been supportive of my music career. He's a good Christian man and it's upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this," Amy Duggar said.
It's not clear why Teresa Hunt felt they were worth selling in that case, but good to know the 19 Duggar kids can still look up to their cousin.
No word if Amy's as psyched up about Rick Santorum's wins in the Republican primary race last night as Jim Bob, Michelle and their brood.
