Ashley Johnston, who went by the stage name, Danica Dillon, settled
her lawsuit against Josh Duggar in 2016. The lawsuit, stemming from an
alleged paid sexual encounter, claimed that Jonhston was left with
emotional and physical trauma from the incident. Johnston has recently resurfaced
to discuss the details of her meetings with the disgraced 19 Kids and
Counting star, and now family critics are curious about the details of
the settlement. Johnston can’t say much about the agreement, but family critics
believe the Duggar family may have paid her in exchange for her silence.

Josh Duggar once claimed he would never settle the lawsuit out of
court

For a short time after the former adult entertainment star filed
her lawsuit, Josh was pretty smug. Fresh off of back-to-back
scandals and a stint in a sex addiction treatment facility, he insisted he had
no plans of settling with Johnston out of court. In fact, he claimed the only
way he’d consider settling the lawsuit was if Johnston was willing to issue a
public apology and a statement indicating that she had lied about having a
sexual encounter with Josh.

No public apology came, and Johnston has maintained, for more than
five years, that she did not lie about the incident. Still, Josh settled the
lawsuit. It’s largely believed that Dillon told the court that she lied about
the encounter, but there is no documentation to back up that claim. Dillon even
took to social media, in the wake of the case’s dismissal, to insist she did
not lie.

Did the Duggars pay off Danica Dillon?

The lawsuit’s abrupt about-face has left a sour taste in the
mouths of many Duggar family followers. Some believe that Johnston was paid off
by the Duggar family to stay mum about the details of her encounter with Josh. Others,
however, wonder if Dillon decided to drop the case after it was discovered she
lied about part of her encounter. The
Hollywood Gossip seems to believe the latter may be true.
