The Duggar family has been on TLC reality shows and specials for 15 years, leading to millions of dollars in income. But, the son-in-law Derick Dillard of Jim Bob Duggar says the family patriarch still keeps all the profit for himself instead of sharing the money with his adult children who are the real stars of Counting On .
Dillard – who is married to Jim Bob & # 39; s daughter Jill – recently went to Twitter to answer some fan questions, and when someone asked the University of Arkansas law student why Jim Bob had all the money and does not share it with his children, Dillard had an interesting answer.
“I don’t know,” wrote Dillard. “You should ask him that.”
The 30-year-old also confirmed the rumor that he was arguing with his father-in-law when a fan declared that the rumor was not true, and Dillard replied, “Why do you hope it is not true?” while tagging the official Twitter account of the Duggar Family.
Dillard has since deleted the tweets, but this is not the first time he has accused Jim Bob Duggar of keeping all the TLC money. In 2018, Dillard told fans that he and Jill – who left at the end of 1945 Counting On – never received any money to appear on the show or do interviews.
“As far as we could see we were volunteers and we had not paid anything for the show,” Dillard wrote. “As I said, for the year we paid our son’s birth costs, both Jill and I thought we had offered our time to help [the show].”
During that 2018 Twitter session, Dillard explained that he was asking TLC for help with their son’s medical expenses when he was in the NICU because the network had earned money with his birth specially, but they refused.
Dillard said it was fair to ask TLC for a $ 5K to $ 10K reimbursement to cover their deductible, because the network “certainly more than that of made us “, but they never offered to pay him everything.
Since Derick and Jill left counting on they have been further removed from the Duggar family. They are rarely photographed during family events and they no longer participate in Duggar’s family vacations. The status of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar’s relationship with Jill and Derick Dillard is unclear, but they all follow each other on social media.
