What is Josh Duggar's net worth?

Duggar is worth $200,000 according to Celebrity Net Worth.

Duggar and his family received residual checks whenever Counting On aired, but that income is now in jeopardy.

Following his reality television stints, Duggar was a used car salesman to support his family.

After Duggar's wife Anna announced her pregnancy with the couple's sixth child on social media, one Instagram user commented "How do you afford all those kids? Does Josh even work?"

Anna replied, "Yes, my husband is a diligent worker and provides well for our family." 

It is estimated that his parents Jim Bob and Michelle received anywhere from $25,000 to $40,000 per episode for their appearances on 19 Kids and Counting.

Is Counting On returning to screens?

Counting On has been canceled after almost six years following Josh Duggar's arrest on child pornography charges, The Sun exclusively revealed.

The shocking news comes after fans launched a petition to boycott Counting On – as horrifying details of Josh's child pornography arrest emerged.

More than 28,000 people have now signed the appeal on Change.org to pull the plug on the show.

An insider told The Sun exclusively: "The decision was made by TLC earlier this week to cancel the show.

"The family was told over the phone shortly after and it's still very hush hush. 

"The petition from those who boycotted Counting On was hard to ignore, and sponsors were very concerned following Josh's arrest. 

"There have been a lot of discussions in recent weeks as the network had already spent money on production after months of filming. 

"But the bottom line is, the network really wants to be on the right side of this scandal ahead of Josh's trial. It was important for bosses to be seen to have taken action.

"The case has put the show in such a bad light, and although it's a shame for those who worked hard on it, and the money spent, there really is no way forward."

What other scandal was Josh Duggar involved in?

In 2015, the TLC network pulled the plug on the hit series 19 Kids and Counting following the revelation that Duggar sexually molested five young girls, including his own sisters.

The revelations indicated that Duggar had allegedly molested girls between 2002 and 2003.

Duggar was never charged with any crime related to the incidents.

In November 2015, porn star, Ashley Johnston, also known by her stage name Danica Dillon, accused Duggar of sexually assaulting her.

Johnston accused him in a lawsuit and interviews of choking, spitting and calling her "worthless" during rough intercourse. She eventually dropped the lawsuit, with Duggar always denying the allegations.

She alleged that they met in March 2015, at a Philadelphia strip club, where she was then working and that Duggar paid her $600 for lap dances before inviting her to his room.

In a exclusive interview with The Sun, Johnston, 33, said she has always told the truth about the alleged assault, which she described as being so intense it felt "like this guy tried to kill me," according to the lawsuit.

Months before Johnston accused him for sexually assaulting her, news reports broke suggesting that Duggar had apparently mantained an Ashley Madison Account.

The then 27-year-old allegedly paid for an account on the service that assists married people in having affairs.

He admitted to being addicted to porn and cheating on his wife.
