Recent years have taken a toll on Josh Duggar.
The controversial reality star, 29, resurfaced while at a homeschooling convention with his entire family in Big Sandy, TX, and even though the disgraced oldest child doesn’t appear in any of the photos posted by his family, he was spotted by a fan, who shared the picture with a blog known as Duggar Family News: Life Is Not All Pickles and Hairspray.
In the pic, Josh is sporting a full beard and a noticeable weight gain.
Josh has been largely out of the spotlight for the past two years; it began when In Touch exclusively revealed that when he was underage, he was investigated and admitted he forcibly fondled four of his younger sisters. Shortly after his molestation scandal came to light, it was revealed that he not only had an Ashley Madison account but also cheated on his wife.
It was then that he admitted his addiction to pornography and sex and entered rehab, where he remained for six months.
“I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the Internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife,” he said at the time.
He continued, “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.”
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Josh was still in treatment.
“Josh is still in counseling after his rehab stay for sex addiction. He is going to a family pastor,” a source said. “It’s religious counseling, so it’s not like he’s getting actual help for his issues.”
