Was Josh Duggar on Ashley Madison?

Disgraced "19 Kids and Counting" star Josh Duggar is in hot water again, just months after his child molestation scandal.

Gossip blog Gawker believes that it has found Duggar's old Ashley Madison account. The dating website for people looking to have "casual encounters, married dating, discreet encounters and extramarital affairs" was compromised, and hackers released sensitive information about customers, including email addresses and billing addresses.

Gawker claims it found Duggar on the database -- the site says it discovered information on the leaked database that indicates someone with a credit card belonging to Joshua J. Duggar, with a billing address that matches Duggar's grandmother's Fayetteville, Arkansas, home, paid nearly $1,000 for two different Ashley Madison subscriptions from February 2013 to May 2015.

The user Gawker tracked down wrote that he was looking for "Conventional Sex," "Experimenting with Sex Toys," One-Night Stands," "Open to Experimentation," "Gentleness," "Good With Your Hands," "Sensual Massage," "Extended Foreplay/Teasing," "Bubble Bath for 2," "Likes to Give Oral Sex," "Likes to Receive Oral Sex," "Someone I Can Teach," "Someone Who Can Teach Me," "Kissing," "Cuddling & Hugging," "Sharing Fantasies" and "Sex Talk."

Gawker also alleges that Duggar may have opened a second account in July 2014, in which he used an Oxon Hill, Maryland, address -- one that matches a home he lived in during that time. The first account Gawker found was named "Josh_the_man" and the second was called "ready4thisdc."

Although he didn't explicitly address Ashley Madison, Duggar, 27, released a statement on Thursday, saying, "I have been the biggest hypocrite ever. While espousing faith and family values, I have secretly over the last several years been viewing pornography on the internet and this became a secret addiction and I became unfaithful to my wife."

Duggar and his wife Anna have been married since 2008. The couple have four children. They recently posted a photo to celebrate their son James' birthday.
