A lawsuit has been filed against Josh Duggar of “19 Kids and Counting” from porn star, Danica Dillon, according to Entertainment Tonight, Nov. 18, 2015. Danica is suing Josh for around $500,000 because he caused her “physical and emotional injuries” from their time together. The court documents state that Danica and Josh allegedly had sex on two separate occasions in March and April of 2015 and abused her both times.
Danica whose real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup, claims that Josh was very rough in their time together and that his actions were so violent he committed battery against her. In the documents, she said it was “as if she were being raped.” Josh met Danica at the a gentleman’s club known as the Gold Club, where she was working or performing. He allegedly requested Danica to give him several lap dances for which he paid around $600 to the club. After her job ended for the night, he then followed her to the Double Tree Hotel where she was staying. He offered her $1,500 to spend time with her and she accepted his proposition.
Danica states that he “manhandled” and “physically assaulted” her once they were inside her room. In the court documents, she said it was as if Josh was raping her and that was not part of their agreement and it “exceeded the scope of any consent.” made by Danica. Josh later apologized for his actions when they met at the Creekside Cabaret and he asked for another chance with her. She agreed, thinking that he would be gentler with her this time, but she was mistaken because she claims he was just as “tortuous” as the first time.
Josh’s treatment of her has left her in treatment with a psychiatrist for “severe anxiety, similar to post-traumatic stress disorder.” Because of his rough treatment, she also suffers from physical injuries and she can no longer work in her profession. It wasn’t until August that Josh Duggar allegedly checked into a rehab center for sexual addictions after the news broke that the Ashley Madison cheating website was hacked and his name was among the list of paying customers.
TLC pulled the show, “19 Kids and Counting” when it became public knowledge that Josh molested his four sisters and a babysitter. However, TLC plans to bring back two of Josh’s sisters, Jill and Jessa to star in their own TV specials. Danica’s legal consultant, Stephanie Ovadia is against the idea. She said, “I don’t believe there should be any spin-off shows whatsoever. I think [the family] needs to have some accountability to the public.” Danica’s lawyer, Marc Frumer, said, “The defendant may be subject to [having to talk about] his prior bad [or] sexually abusive acts at trial. They are all relevant if he takes the stand.”
