Josh Duggar is headed for a jury trial in the Ashley Madison lawsuit brought against him by a D.J. and model. The latter is claiming damages, after alleging Duggar family's eldest child used his images on the adult website.
Los Angles-based D.J. Matthew McCarthy has alleged Josh Duggar stole his image for use on Ashley Madison and OkCupid to solicit sex. Josh's actions reportedly brought him infamy and led to loss of work, People reported, while quoting from the lawsuit McCarthy filed. The D.J. further alleged that his "religious" family was hurt and the reality star's actions were malicious and deliberate.
It seems quite the self-own: finding a more handsome person who strongly resembles but would never actually be mistaken for oneself, stealing their photo for use on Ashley Madison, then getting caught.
