As the Duggar family and TLC have slowly released statements following Josh Duggar’s arrest, Amy King is doing the same. Amy is a cousin of the Duggar children and is Jim Bob’s niece. She had a different upbringing from her famous cousins, and she doesn’t seem to be very close with most of them these days. She and Jill Dillard are besties and go thrifting and eat out together often.
Though she doesn’t seem to be close to the Duggars now, Amy was previously on the family’s TLC shows. She did spend some time with the family years ago. Now, they only interact via social media, as far as fans can tell. It doesn’t necessarily seem like Amy is on poor terms with the rest of the Duggars, but she has called them out before.
On Thursday, Josh was arrested in Arkansas. Less than 24 hours later, he had a court hearing. The official press release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Western District of Arkansas states, “According to court documents, Joshua James Duggar, 33, allegedly used the internet to download child sexual abuse material. Duggar allegedly possessed this material, some of which depicts the sexual abuse of children under the age of 12, in May 2019.”
