There’s more drama in the Duggar family! If you’re a fan of the family, you might recall that Derick Dillard has been revealing some interesting things. Derick is married to Jill, who is the daughter of Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar.
Recently, Derick has been very critical of Jim Bob. He seems to be sharing a lot of previously unknown details about the family.
Derick recently shared, “I thought it was fair to ask in negotiating. TLC made lots of money in filming a birth special episode, and they had not offered to pay us anything. So I thought, at the very least, they could reimburse 5-10K for medical expenses. TLC sure made more than that off of us.” He also shared that Jim Bob is responsible for the money from TLC.
Duggar fans were upset to hear that Jill needs permission to visit the Duggar family’s home. This is even the case when a baby is being born. Jill is a midwife and often assists her sisters with their births, but now she needs Jim Bob’s permission. Plus, he has to be there any time Jill is.
Derick has been spilling most of this tea in the comments section on his Instagram posts. He also replies to tweets about these kinds of questions. Duggar fans are unsure of how truthful Derick is being, so the response he receives is mixed. Some followers are very supportive.
Duggar cousin Amy King encourages Derick to “keep it up”
In a recent tweet, Amy, who is a cousin of Jill, showed that she supports Derick. She wrote, “@derickmdillard you really are shedding some light on some very dark gray areas! Keep it up!”
In response to her tweet, some of her followers encouraged her to “shed some light” as well. They also asked her to “spill the tea” about the Duggar family.
@derickmdillard you really are shedding some light on some very dark gray areas! Keep it up!

Amy and Jill seem to be pretty close lately. On many of Jill’s posts, Amy leaves encouraging or loving comments. They also tried on clothes together at Amy’s store, 3130 Clothing, recently. Perhaps Jill is turning to Amy for more support because she isn’t being supported by her family.
Derick plans to write a book
Derick has said that he will be writing a book about his wife’s family. TV Shows Ace reported that Derick has confirmed that a book is in the works. Right now, the Duggar son-in-law is in law school. He’s also a father of two kids with Jill. So, he probably doesn’t have a lot of time to write a book.
Still, his followers are curious about what he will reveal about the family in his new book. He has shared a few details here and there on social media, but there is a lot more that will come out when he publishes his book.
