Is Derick Dillard cheating on Jill Duggar? That’s what fans of the Counting On couple are speculating after Derick’s recent string of controversial tweets. A viewer posed the question of his infidelity on reddit — and most agreed there was some truth to the theory.
“Jill and Derick have seemed pretty ‘over’ each other since well before Sam’s birth, but Derick seems to really have really gone off the rails lately,” the redditor wrote. “Between his general awfulness and tweeting a whole lot of Biblical quotes about adultery and recent willing association with Turd [Josh Duggar] (more on that in a moment), I could see him finding some sort [of] twisted justification.”
Derick, 28, was recently fired from the family’s TLC show after he made transphobic comments about Jazz Jennings. “We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future,” the network said at the time. Viewers on the thread agreed his recent tweets are suspicious and possibly a sign of trouble in the home.
“I can’t help but feel awful for all of the married girls. Courtships are soooo short, I don’t feel like they get a chance to really get to know their husbands. And then they are stuck,” one redditor comment before another added, “They’re still in the infatuation stage by the time they’re married and have no idea what their husband is like behind closed doors. I’m sure it works out for some but to me, it just sounds like a recipe for a terrible relationship.”
However, one commenter suggested another theory to Derick’s recent adultery tweets and suggested maybe Josh, who was caught up in a cheating scandal in 2015, was unfaithful to his wife Anna once again and the family found out. “Here’s my crazy conspiracy theory that no one else is talking about: I think Josh cheated on Anna again, like, recently, and the family found out,” user andsheleft wrote. “I think Derrick posted those tweets to condemn his brother-in-law, and I think Josh gave him some money towards his latest grift to try and be like “see we’re family, we’re in each other’s corners, also please shut up.” Let’s keep our fingers crossed that all the Duggar girls are in happy marriages.
