More Details On Josh Duggar’s Past Struggles Revealed

Bowman Fedosky, a former family friend of the Duggars, recently shared some details about Josh’s past. Fedosky revealed this information in an exclusive interview with Distractify

He explained, “When we first met the Duggars, I think I was 8, maybe 7, Josh wasn’t there. I think that was probably the first time he had gotten sent away. There was a month-long period where we were hanging out with the Duggars and hadn’t met Josh yet, just heard about him. And then there were all these different weird things that happened throughout the years.”

All of these “weird things” that Fedosky mentioned were the reasons Josh was sent away on multiple occasions. He also believes that the Duggars and their acquaintances knew more than they admitted publicly.

He said that the first time he met the Duggars is probably the first time Josh had been sent away to ALERT Academy.

Fedosky claimed that Josh had been sent there multiple times growing up.

Fedosky added, “Growing up, they never talked about it. I mean, it was always kind of hush-hush, and there were some people that knew about it the whole time. I think my parents knew about it.”

Josh Duggar was sent away when he was “struggling.” However, Jim Bob and Michelle didn’t share many details about why exactly their son was away.
