The Duggars are not divorcing, despite a report. Gossip Cop can expose what’s really going on.

“Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar Divorce: Couple Split Over Josh Duggar – Report,” reads a headline from Celeb Dirty Laundry, which point-blank states in the accompanying story, “Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are divorcing.” The site goes on to write, “According to the cover of the latest issue of In Touch, Jim Bob Duggar and Michelle Duggar are divorcing.”

The webloid continues, “The couple has been battling over their son Josh Duggar who is accused of being a child molester. Reports indicate that Jim Bob Duggar is ready to accept his son back into the family fold after Bible-based therapy but, like any reasonable mother, Michelle Duggar no longer wants anything to do with the alleged pedophile. The feud over their sexual predator son has led to the couple splitting and a significant divide in their 19 children as the kids take sides in the family drama.”

But CDL based this entire story on just the cover of In Touch. Had it bothered to actually look inside the magazine, the site would’ve known it’s actually a bait-and-switch. The wording on the cover was designed to give the impression of a possible divorce by blaring “the breakup” and “the fight that split the family apart.”

The actual article, however, isn’t about a divorce, but the family being “split” on whether Josh should be shunned, therefore “breaking up” the clan. It has nothing to do with Jim Bob and Michelle divorcing, which they are not. Celeb Dirty Laundry would have known this if it actually read the article. Instead, it made an untrue assumption and used it for a completely false post.
