Jill Duggar’s husband Derick claims they cut ties with reality show to ‘avoid toxic relationships’ and ‘regain control’ – The US Sun

JILL Duggar’s husband, Derick Dillard, revealed they cut ties with Counting On to “avoid toxic relationships” and “regain control” amid his feud with patriarch Jim Bob Duggar.

Jill, 28, has been breaking away from her conservative family in recent years, as her husband Derick, 31, has accused her father of withholding money from their TLC reality show.

In an interview on Without a Crystal Ball, Derick revealed more on their decision to quit Counting On in 2017.

The show host read Derick’s answer on why he and Jill haven’t been spotted with the Duggar family as frequently: “We are now trying to avoid toxic relationships for the health and recovery of our family.”

Derick claimed leaving the show had “less to do about money” and more to do about “regaining control of our lives.”

The host continued to read: “After years we found we had been sucked into a pattern of planning our hopes and dreams, only to find out that what we wanted for our lives really didn’t matter.

“For example, we put years of our lives and thousands of dollars of our own money towards a career goal, including airline tickets for interviews only to learn there were conditions out of our control, but under Jim Bob’s control that prevented us from taking such a step in our lives.”

Derick claimed they learned “too late” that Jim Bob had a “hidden contract” preventing them from accepting a job position.

He continued: “People wonder why we keep making such sudden changes in our lives, this is part of the reason.”

Derick has also claimed in the past that they are not allowed in the Duggar family home without Jim Bob’s permission.

When asked why, Derick told the host: “We have never been given an answer.”

Derick also mentioned cousin Amy Duggar King, who he and Jill are close with.

He claimed she was never paid for her appearances on Counting On and 19 Kids and Counting, and that she is under NDA and cannot speak about the Duggars.

Derick claimed in an earlier episode of the YouTube show that they weren’t allowed to share personal news.

He said: “We weren’t even allowed to be the first ones to announce our own life events – our marriage, expecting our baby, our genders of our children, our births – not by our own choice.

“If I had to do it all over again, I would’ve announced myself when we were expecting and things like that, even if I would’ve gotten in trouble.”

Derick has revealed in recent months that he’s writing a tell-all book about the situation.

Since the feud, Jill and Derick have been absent from family gatherings, including Christmas.

Jill also skipped out on her sister-in-law Abbie’s baby shower and sister Joy-Anna’s gender reveal.

The couple has also broken the family’s strict rules.

They enrolled their oldest son, Israel, in public school instead of homeschooling him.

Jill also pierced her nose and has been wearing pants, which are against the family’s conservative beliefs.

Although the Duggars tried to mend their relationship with Derick by wishing him a happy birthday on social media, the Dillards ignored the post.
