Josh Duggar Admits to Cheating on Wife, Porn Addiction, Being Total Hypocrite

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Yesterday, the world learned that Josh Duggar used Ashley Madison, the hacked adultery website, to help him cheat on his wife, Anna Duggar.

It was the latest in a long line of scandalous revelations for Duggar, coming on the heels of news that he had molested four of his sisters.

That was in 2002 and 2003, though. Horrific as it was, a long time has passed since then. These current revelations, however, are recent.

In addition to Ashley Madison, it appears that 27-year-old father of four Josh was on OK Cupid trolling for chicks behind Anna's back.

Josh has issued a statement in which he basically admits as much, confessing his history of infidelity ... and addiction to pornography.

"I have been the biggest hypocrite ever," the former lobbyist admits.

"While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet."

"This became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife."

"I am so ashamed of the double life that I have been living and am grieved for the hurt, pain and disgrace my sin has caused my wife and family."

"And, most of all, Jesus and all those who profess faith in Him.

"I brought hurt and a reproach to my family, close friends and the fans of our show with my actions that happened when I was 14-15 years old."

"Now I have re-broken their trust."

"The last few years, while publicly stating I was fighting against immorality in our country, I was hiding my own personal failings."

"I humbly ask for your forgiveness," he concludes. "Please pray for my precious wife Anna and our family during this time."

Wow. Just wow. Not a bad statement considering the situation, but still, nothing short of astonishing that it came to this.

Anna Duggar has yet to speak on the matter, and given the strict nature of the Duggars' religious beliefs, it is unlikely that she will file for divorce.

First time for everything, though?

In any case, earlier today, an insider at TLC revealed that Josh's list of indiscretions has likely brought the Duggars' television careers to an end.
