Porn Actress Says Duggar Got Rough With Her

     PHILADELPHIA (CN) – With his reality-television celebrity in the drain, Josh Duggar now faces a civil complaint accusing him of roughing up a porn star in a hotel room.
     Porn actress Danica Dillon filed suit against the embattled Duggar on Tuesday, contending that the 27-year-old “manhandled and physically assaulted” her during what supposed to be a consensual sexual encounter at the DoubleTree Hotel in Philadelphia.
     Dillon, a 28-year-old wife and mother whose real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup, “felt as if she were being raped,” according to the complaint in the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas.
     Though a resident of San Diego, Dillon says she performs at The Gold Bar and the Creekside Cabaret in Philadelphia as a “featured performer.”
     Duggar became a household name by virtue of being the first of the “19 Kids and Counting” celebrated on the TLC reality show of the same name. His Baptist parents in Arkansas, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, famously do not believe in birth control, and all of their 19 children have names that begin with the letter J.
     TLC canceled the show this past July, two months after In Touch Weekly published a nearly decade-old police report indicating that Josh had been accused of molesting several young girls, including two of his sisters.
     Days after the show’s cancelation, a hack of the cheating website Ashley Madison revealed that Josh Duggar had been maintaining a membership since 2013.
     The father of four checked himself into a rehabilitation facility in August, according to the Duggar family website, and Dillon’s lawsuit describes Duggar as “a resident of Reformer’s Unanimous Men’s School of Discipleship in Rockford, Ill.”
     Dillon says Duggar approached her while she was performing this year at the Gold Bar, “on or about March 12, 13, & 14.”
     After spending several hundred dollars on personal “lap dances” from Dillon, Duggar followed Dillon back to the Doubletree where she was staying, and “propositioned her for consensual sex,” according to the six-page complaint.
     Duggar “paid her $1,500 for her company,” the complaint continues.
     He got violent once inside the room, Dillon says.
     When speaking to “Entertainment Tonight” in September about the alleged incident, Dillon called the experience “terrifying,” claiming that “their liaison quickly turned aggressive,” and that Duggar forced her to perform oral sex on him.
     While Dillon maintained that the encounter was consensual, she told ET reporters that he “was very rough” with her, making her feel almost as if she was being forced into sex.
     “He threw me on the bed,” Dillon reportedly told the magazine. “I never said no … but I did push him back and say, ‘that’s too rough, that’s too rough.'”
     “After he finished what he was doing, he just walked out of the room,” Dillon told ET reporters. “He tossed his cash onto my dresser and just walked out.”
     Dillon’s lawsuit describes how Duggar approached her a month after the hotel encounter, when she was performing at the Cabaret.
     “His motive for his ‘apology’ was to deceive [Dillon] into another private meeting where he engaged in identical tortious conduct,” the complaint says.
     TLC aired Duggar’s wedding in a 2009 special called “A Very Duggar Wedding,” but Dillon said she “had no clue” that he was married.
     She told ET reporters that she thought he was “just [an] average, everyday fan” of hers. The actress has appeared in mainstream movies as well as pornographic films.
     Dillon is at least $500,000 in damages for “serious emotional and physical damages,” saying Duggar’s conduct has rendered her “unable to work in her chosen field.
     A public-relations firm linked to the Duggar family did not return an email seeking comment. An attorney with a firm that represents the Duggar family said in a phone call that he did not represent Josh Duggar.
     Courthouse News was also unable to obtain a comment by calling Discovery Communications, which handles TLC and several other cable networks. TLC still lists “19 Kids and Counting” in the “shows” section of its website, despite having dropped the program.
     The Associated Press reported Thursday that a Duggar family attorney and a family spokeswoman had not returned requests for comment.
     Dillon is represented in the lawsuit by Philadelphia attorney Marc Frumer.
