Counting On stars need to go to Jim Bob Duggar when they want their earned wages, according to what his son-in-law alludes to in a post. It seems Derick Dillard, Jim Bob’s son-in-law, took to social media recently with a few Counting On tidbits. When the husband of Jill Duggar Dillard answered questions to fans, it appears he aired some of the family’s alleged inner dealings as well.
Derick Dillard was reportedly ousted from Counting On after this famous Duggar son-in-law spewed forth some rather nasty views. Although Derick continues to insist TLC did not fire him, it seems he holds some sort of a grudge against the network.
Counting On: Jim Bob Duggar in Derick Dillard’s Scope
In a recent tweet, Jim Bob Duggar’s son-in-law Derick Dillard sounded as if he hinted to a lawsuit after condemning TLC for caring more about money than people. He said, “they better lawyer-up b/c a storm is inevitable.”
Then Derick Dillard once again suggested to fans of Counting On that he wasn’t fired. He said “TLC has issues” and went on to say they “begged us not to quit filming”. Most likely referring to him and Jill Duggard who also left Counting On.
In previous tweets, fans asked the Duggar’s son-in-law about Jim Bob Duggar handling all the money that his kids earn from Counting On. One fan asked Dillard why Jim Bob Duggar doesn’t give all the money that his kids make back to the kids.
Derick Dillard said he doesn’t know and then directed the fan to ask Jim Bob Duggar that question. He didn’t defend his father-in-law which seems to bring Counting On fans to assume the fan hit on something here.
TLC, Jim Bob, The Family and Money
The Counting On enthusiast who started this online convesation with Derick also asked if Jim Bob Duggar negotiates the TLC contracts for just his daughter or Derick as well. According to reports, Dillard answered in now-deleted tweets that Jim Bob negotiated contracts for “everybody”. He also claimed that Jim Bob does the negotiations “without telling anyone”. It looks like he throws shade on his father-in-law with this quip as well, according to reports.
When the fan asked about the money and Derick Dillard suggested they ask Jim Bob, was he confirming these allegations? Or was he just saying get it from Jim Bob himself because he doesn’t know about the accusation?
But it seems some people took Jim Bob’s son-in-law’s answer as throwing shade on his father-in-law. Reports indicate that Derick gave the impression that Jim Bob’s handling of the family’s money is on the shady side.
So reports indicate that not only is the Counting On alum aiming at his father-in-law today but TLC as well. Jim Bob Duggar is no novice when it comes to rather negative headlines. The patriarch of the Counting On family ruled the roost with a tight hold over the years. This caused many to critique his parenting skills.
Several years ago an online petition circulated wanting the Duggar’s original show 19 Kids and Counting off the air. The patriarch of the family addresses that petition in the video below.
A few years back over182,000 people signed that Change.org petition. So the Duggar father didn’t just rub a handfull of people the wrong way. They came out in droves attempting to remove the show.
Counting On: A New Generation Still at Hands of Papa Duggar?
With a new generation of Counting On Duggars rising up, Jim Bob Duggar gained at least one son-in-law that pushes back. Derick Dillard married Jill Duggar making him part of this famous family.
Some might argue how he knew that Jill belongs to a close-knit family with distinct and seemingly unwavering views. But they married and it seems he’s been bucking their system from the get-go.
Counting On fans know that Derick Dillard seems to speak his mind. When fans asked Derick about Jim Bob Duggar’s handling the family’s finances, many deciphered his answer as not having his father-in-law’s back. So, who needs enemies when you seem to have a son-in-law at the ready to knock you down a few notches?
