If you have been following the Duggar family for a while now, then you would obviously know about the Josh Duggar cheating scandals. Well, in case for some reason you have no clue what I’m talking about this was when Josh was found out to be a member of the website Ashley Madison. This site was created for people who wanted to have affairs behind their significant others' backs. Another scandal involving Josh would have been when he inappropriately touched two of his sisters, Jill and Jessa when they were only children. This resulted in Josh being sent away to rehab to work on his personal issues, and the scandal also caused the show to be canceled, which resulted in the family losing a lot of money.

A report by In Touch Weekly provided most of the facts used in this article.

How much money did Jim-Bob Duggar lose because of his son Josh Duggar?

Jim-Bob Duggar and the rest of his family took a huge financial hit in the summer of 2015 as this was when it was revealed that Josh Duggar had inappropriately touched at least five different girls when he was a teenager. The backlash from this scandal made TLC cancel “19 Kids and Counting” as it looked bad for their network to be associated with someone who had issues like that. However, not only did they cancel the series but they also decided to not do re-runs of the show either. With the show being canceled and it having no re-runs, this meant that Jim-Bob was earning no revenue from the series at all, which caused a major decrease in his earnings.

The summer of 2015 may have been the worst summer for the Duggar family both socially and financially, but they eventually bounced back. For example, now Jim-Bob Duggar has an estimated net worth of over $3.5 million. The reason his net worth is so high is that he now gets a paycheck from his new show “Counting On” and he also has other ways of revenue as well, such as a very large family real estate business.

What is Josh Duggar up to now?

Josh Duggar has had quite the busy year to say the very least, as in 2017 he finally finished therapy for many of his personal issues. Recently, he and his wife Anna just welcomed their fifth child Mason into the family. The couple already is the proud parents of four other children named Merideth, Mackynzie, Micheal, and Marcus. It is worth mentioning that Josh isn’t the only Duggar family member that is not appearing in “Counting On” as Jill Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, will no longer be appearing on the show as he made rather transphobic comments about Jazz Jennings online.
