The word scandal isn't typically associated with the Duggar family featured on TLC's 19 Kids and Counting, so it is with surprise the public learns of a photo scandal involving one member of the clan.
Amy Duggar, often referred to as cousin Amy on the show, appears to be the victim of an extortion attempt. A woman in Iowa named Teresa Hunt claimed to have scandalous photos of the 25-year-old in a plot to extort money from TLC.
Hunt was arrested Feb. 1 after she allegedly sent TLC executives letters demanding they either cancel 19 Kids and Counting or pay her $10,000. In exchange Hunt would not release photos she claimed depicted Amy Duggar and a 56-year-old musician in "intimate situations."
Amy Duggar, who is the niece of patriarch Jim Bob Duggar, denied the photos or any non-professional relationship exists between her and the musician.
"It's totally untrue," Amy Duggar told EW. "He is a longtime family friend who has always been supportive of my music career. He's a good Christian and it's upsetting that his generosity has been exploited like this."
Amy Duggar is an aspiring country singer who idolizes Martina McBride. Her personal website lists the 25-year-old's realtionship status as "single."
