Josh Duggar's wife Anna snubbed from family party as she's 'at war' with in-laws over husband's child pornography bust

ANNA Duggar was noticeably absent from her in-laws get-together over Labor Day weekend as their rift continues on following Josh's child pornography bust.

The pregnant mother of six, who is standing by her spouse following his release on bail in July, is said to be "struggling" with the scandal, and "isolating" herself from the Duggar family.


Now it seems the fallout has got even worst as Anna, 33, was noticeably absent from the Duggar family's catch up at Farmland Adventures in Arizona over the holiday weekend.

The Duggars took to Instagram to mark the occasion with a plethora of snaps with the kids and grandkids – including one of the entire family sans Anna.

Captioning the post, they penned: "Quite a few of us made it out to @farmlandadventuresnwa for a great day of family fun!

"It still feels like Summer outside, but the giant corn maze sure did get us in the mood for Fall!

"The pumpkin patch, pony rides, farm animals, pig races, 9-acre maze, and play area all made for some happy, tired kids… and adults! Can’t wait to go back! #makingmemories #happylaborday".

In July, The Sun exclusively revealed how Anna is "pointing the finger at everyone else" for her husband's child pornography arrest and feuding with the family.

We also revealed Josh's trial has been delayed until November and TLC have axed the family's reality show Counting On after almost six years.

PERSONAL STRUGGLE

A source revealed: "Anna is really struggling with Josh's arrest, and she's still at war with his parents Jim Bob and Michelle.

"She still lives in the warehouse on Duggar land but isn't particularly welcome at the main house at the moment.

"She has been pointing the finger at everyone else for what has happened to Josh, she's falling out with family members and isolating herself."

'ANNA IS NOT HAPPY'

The insider said Anna is even annoyed with Josh's third party custodians, LaCount and Maria Reber, neighbors and friends of Jim Bob and Michelle who have taken in their son.

They said: "Anna is not happy with the Rebers because Maria said she was uncomfortable being alone with Josh, and she is adamant he's innocent and is not a danger.

"She frequently goes to see Josh at their house and takes the kids, but she doesn’t converse with the Rebers much at all. 

"Overall, this is an extremely difficult time for Anna and she is praying Josh gets off, although she believes him she is worried about the outcome of the case and their family's future."

The source added that Anna is in "financial difficulty" and did receive small payments from Counting On, which she appeared on sporadically, before it was axed by the network.

Maria Reber previously revealed during an earlier court hearing that she felt uneasy being around Josh alone, along with him being near her 22-year-old daughter.

However, she also testified at the hearing: "My husband has made the decision and I'm here to support that decision," referencing their choice to welcome Josh into their home.

JOSH'S ARREST

Josh, 33, was arrested and charged with receiving and possessing child pornography in April, as he awaits his trial on home confinement. 

If convicted, he could receive 20 years in prison with fines up to $250,000 for each count. 

Josh is accused of having a one two-minute video on his computer of two underage females and a male who performed sexual acts on the children. 

Also found were 65 images of a female "consistent with child pornography." The victims were between 5 and 12.

COURT HEARING

The disgraced former reality star requested the court postpone his trial date "in or after February 2022."

The court responded by agreeing to a three-month delay, but they explained anything additional is "unnecessary."

An Arkansas judge found the postponement "appropriate" and reset the jury trial for November 30, 2021.

The pretrial conference has been moved from July 2 to November 18, 2021. 

Josh has until October 18, 2021 to change his not guilty plea and until October 20, 2021 to submit a signed plea deal.  A change of plea hearing, if needed, is set for October 22. 

Josh’s legal team called the case "complex," as it involved a "several-year federal investigation".

He allegedly used the "dark web" and "peer-to-peer BitTorrent file-sharing networks," both of which are common in the receiving of child pornography.
