Anna Duggar is reportedly getting ready to file for a divorce from her husband Josh after he was caught cheating on her last year.
According to The Daily Mail, Anna, who has four children with Josh, plans on filing for divorce from her husband of eight years “in the next few weeks.”
Last year, news came out that Josh had molested five underage girls, including four of his own sisters. Not long after that scandal, it was revealed that he had an account with Ashley Madison, an adultery website.
Duggar went to rehab for six months and Anna initially said on the Duggar family’s reality TV show “Counting On” that she would stay with Josh and that they were working to restore their marriage.
However, according to ChristianToday.com, due to the advice from some new friends, Anna will soon file for divorce and will seek custody of the couple’s four children.
The “new friends” reportedly told Anna that the Duggars were using her in order to make Josh look better.
"They were horrified that she'd been persuaded to talk on-camera about Josh, and then wheeled out with the children, looking like everything was fine," a source said.
After filing for divorce, Anna reportedly intends on moving far away from Josh and the rest of the Duggar family.
