Former “19 Kids and Counting” star Josh Duggar has just lost his lawsuit against In Touch Weekly, the magazine that broke the news of his child molestation scandal from several years back.
It was In Touch that revealed in 2015 that Duggar molested his younger sisters in 2006 when they were all minors, according to Page Six. The family had dealt with the difficult experience in private, so when the news surfaced, they were upset that their privacy was violated.
