A BILLINGSBORO, New York — Billionaire and television personality Josh Dugger has sued former wife Anna Duggar over her roles in a controversial wedding gown scandal.
In the suit, filed in federal court in the Eastern District of New York on Monday, Duggar claims he was wrongfully terminated by his ex, Kristin Anderson, after she allegedly violated the terms of their divorce agreement by trying to arrange a wedding with a younger woman.
The suit claims that Duggar and Anderson have “engaged in a pattern of conduct that constitutes the intentional infliction of emotional distress and intentional inflicment of emotional suffering.”
Duggar and his wife, Kristine, married in 2012 and have two children together.
In June, Dugger filed a $50 million lawsuit against the sisters for wrongful termination, saying they had threatened to sue him.
The suit said Anderson allegedly made false statements to the judge that she was pregnant with Duggar’s child.
Dugger also said he was fired by his father, who was also fired by Duggar in May, for failing to show up for work.
Duchess of Cambridge, the heir to the British throne, had previously been asked to sign a declaration that the Duggars were living together in a private residence without a court order or consent.
The court document said the statement was not signed by the Duchess of Cambridge.
Deggar, who has a history of child abuse allegations, is married to actress Kim Basinger, with whom he has a son.
