Anna Duggar has silently stood by her husband, former reality TV star and family values activist Josh Duggar, but celebrity websites are reporting her siblings want to stage an intervention to convince her to divorce the man who admitted to cheating on her while she was pregnant.
HollywoodLife.com claims to have an unnamed source who said Anna’s older brother, Daniel Keller, is leading a push to free his sister of her marriage to the former 19 Kids and Counting star.
“Daniel is leading the charge to get Anna out of her dysfunctional marriage and away from her cheating husband,” the source reportedly told the webste. “He has rallied a couple of their sisters and brothers to take this opportunity to talk some sense into Anna. They know when she’s at home surrounded by the Duggars and their friends, Anna will never listen to them. But Daniel and the others are hoping that getting her away from the Duggar clan will help. They want to stage a family meeting or divorce intervention and really tell Anna how they feel.”
Keller has been vocal about wanting his sister to leave Duggar, offering to let Anna and her children stay with him — with some choice words for her husband.
“I told her I would go get her and her children stay [with] me,” he posted in August. “She said she’s staying where she’s at. But I won’t stop trying to get that pig out of our family. I tell you who I don’t give a s— about is that pig she calls her husband.”
Adult film actress Danica Dillon has publicly stated Josh Duggar paid her for sex at the time Anna was pregnant, but Dillon didn’t know who Duggar was or that he was married at the time.
In May, InTouch Weekly revealed Duggar had molested multiple young girls when he was a teenager and the Duggar family covered it up. Then in August, Gawker revealed Duggar had two paid accounts with adultery website, Ashley Madison.
The Duggar family has campaigned on anti-gay causes and Josh Duggar was once the executive director of the anti-gay Christian organization the Family Research Council.
