Jim Bob & Michelle Duggar Break Their Silence About Getting Divorced

Anonymous sources have reported that Michelle was unhappy with how Jim Bob had handled the situation, and was further distressed when Josh confessed to cheating on his wife Anna and their four children, and subsequently spent seven months in rehab for alleged sex addiction.
