Playing Josh Duggar Sued for Allegedly Using DJ's Photo on His Ashley Madison Account

Josh Duggar is being taken to court over his Ashley Madison account.

Los Angeles-based DJ and photographer Matt McCarthy claims in a new lawsuit filed this week that the disgraced former 19 Kids & Counting star used a photo of McCarthy he found on the internet for his Ashley Madison profile -- a dating website that courts people seeking an affair, which Duggar admitted to having an account for last year. McCarthy says Duggar's alleged use of his picture led to "harassing and humiliating messages" linking him to the scandal, according to court documents obtained by ET.

McCarthy, who says in the lawsuit he comes from a strong Catholic upbringing, claims that in addition to ridicule, Duggar's alleged use of his photos got him dubbed "DJ Duggar," and cost him professional work in his music career.

McCarthy is seeking monetary compensation for alleged loss of income, job security, and reputation as a result of the apparent photo use.

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Duggar has reunited with his wife, Anna, 28, after leaving his faith-based rehabilitation clinic in March, following an admission to infidelity and pornography addiction last year.
