In 2017, Jill Dugar and her sisters filed a lawsuit for invasion of privacy.
Now, in a sarcastic twist, this legal strategy has resulted in the personal information of these siblings being published online.
As previously reported … Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Joy-Ana have filed lawsuits against City of Springdale, police department staff, and other authorities when they claimed to have released a 2006 police report on their eldest brother, Josh. Caused mental anguish “.
Josh, of course, admitted in 2015 that he touched his siblings inappropriately when he was a teenager and they were minors.
He was forced to make the confession because a national tabloid provided him with a police report and wrote an article about the alleged incidents.
So did Jill and the company’s legal filing, who were outraged that such a personal issue had been leaked that they believed it was an illegal leak.
A judge dismissed the Duggar sisters’ case a few months ago, but several documents from the case are now available online.
Jill, for example, admitted in court that her father, Jim Bob Duger, had abused her emotionally.
“I saw a whole new dimension to my father when my husband and I began to decide what was best for our family, but not in his best interests,” Jill told a psychologist in her legal filing.
“Sadly, I realized he had become quite restrained, intimidating and responsive.”
Accusing Jim Bob of occasionally “verbally abusing”, Jill was quoted as describing their relationship as “not good” and added where things stand nowadays:
“We occasionally text in a family group thread, but I don’t feel comfortable being around and chatting with him. He verbally abused me. It’s not good for my mental health right now.”
With a similarly annoying line, Jill’s husband, Derrick Dillard, said as part of the lawsuit that Jim Bob stole the money his kids made from reality television – and kept it to himself.
“Our neighbors sometimes bring boxes of food. And I also got food through the pantry on campus, “Dillard said in his testimony of how Jim Bob’s supposed actions affected his immediate family.
Now, through Jill’s statement – taken on September 1, 2021 and obtained by The Sun – the former Counting on Cast member says his income comes from social media, including product and advertising promotions.
These platforms include Instagram, YouTube and Facebook.
Jill explained late last summer, “We have Google ads, a simple, easy way to make money.”
“You just, like, checkboxes and then there are ads that I don’t know about, you know what’s going on there. Google ads are more like a third party – like, if you’re on YouTube, it will pop up during the video.”
Dugar went on to explain that he had promoted a number of products on his family blog and on social media:
“On the blog, it will be a placement on the blog. And then the other things I will work on will be something that I will post with the product.”
And then Jill revealed in her statement that she made বল 10,000 “ballpark” in 2020 from this kind of post.
Derrick, meanwhile, sat down for his statement on May 25, 2021, and gave more details about the couple’s income, including what they had gained from counting on.
The father of two, who is expecting his third child later this year, has confirmed in court that he started receiving only $ 500 to $ 1,000 per episode of the “early 2017” TLC series when he left the program until May of that year.
Dillard added that Jill earned about $ 1,000 per episode and estimated that Michelle and Jim Bob took about $ 10,000 per episode.
At one point, Derrick was asked the following questions:
“Did Jim Bob and Michelle Dugar treat you right on the TV show?”
“I’m not sure, because I think there are a lot of misunderstandings,” he replied in a statement.
“I thought we should know and be able to determine if we were forced to show up.”
Derrick also discusses the recent income of their immediate family, saying that the couple earned $ 800 from their YouTube channel in April 2021.
While in law school, Derrick relied on part-time work … including a job as a driver at Grubub, where he earned $ 800 a month.
Jill and Derrick are hoping to join their third son, seven-year-old Israel and four-year-old Sam.
However, they claim that they cannot afford to feed their current family nowadays.
“Our neighbors occasionally bring boxes of food,” Dillard said in May last year. “And I also got food through the campus pantry.”
In the past, Jill and Derrick have been outspoken about not receiving any compensation since the time of their counting.
People Magazine previously reported that Jim Bob was responsible for the money earned by all his children from Counting On, reporting that they received $ 25,000 to $ 45,000 per episode.
Jill and Derrick, who debuted in the series in 2015, said they did not Any Money from the series until they are released in 2017.
“When we involved an attorney and finally recovered some money. It was a process,” Jill told the publication a few months ago.
“It’s probably a little higher than the minimum wage. But we’ve been able to recover at least some.”
