. While Jim Bob and his spouse, Michelle
Duggar, haven’t publicly commented on Derick’s accusations, some followers consider
he has his different kids, those who stay financially
dependent

reply questions on life with the Duggars. The prolonged interview with YouTube
channel, Without
a Crystal Ball
, did little to color the Duggar household in a constructive mild.
For probably the most half, Derick merely reiterated what he had beforehand shared by way of
social media, but it nonetheless looks like a public relations nightmare for the
