It’s been two years since Derick Dillard was fired by TLC, but he still gets asked to comment on his in-laws’ reality TV series.
And his latest remarks left some fans floored.
In case you missed it, Derick threatened to sue TLC and suggested that his father-in-law, Jim Bob Duggar, keeps all the money that the family earns from the show.
The remark raised a lot of questions about the nature of Jim Bob’s relationship not only with Derick, but with all of his sons-in-law.
Aftee all, JB has feuded with just about all of them at one time or another.
And while he seems to prefer some of his daughters’ husbands to others, we’re not sure if the term “favorite” really applies here.
Here’s a brief rundown of Jim Bob’s fraught relationships with the men who married into his family:
1. A Tough Nut to Crack
We’ve known for quite some time that Jim Bob Duggar doesn’t get along with his sons-in-law. But now, there’s reason to believe the situation is far worse than anyone thought.
2. The Firebrand
It was Derick Dillard who shined a light on that fact in comments he recently made on Twitter.
3. The Set-Up
On October 18, a fan asked Dillard about why Jim Bob gets “all the money for the show and doesn’t give any to his children?” Derick took the bait in spectacular fashion.
4. Knocked Down
“I don’t know. You would have to ask him that,” Dillard replied.
5. Throwing Shade
From there, Derick accused Jim Bob of negotiating for the entire family without letting anyone else in on the details. The implication seems to be that Derick blames Jim Bob for the fact that he was fired by TLC.
6. The Real Reason
Of course, we all know that Derick was actually fired for bullying fellow TLC star Jazz Jennings on Twitter, but that didn’t stop Dillard from claiming that he wasn’t fired and suggesting that the network is in cahoots with Jim Bob.
