It was tough.She’d take my hands and push them up under her shirt and tell me I was tickling her,” he writes in his new book, The Good, The Bad, The Grace Of God. “Then she started making me pull down my pants.”
Jep Robertson claims he was so distraught over the sexual molesting that he began skipping classes. “My mom always thought I was sick,” he admitted. “…I think for a while I just tried to bury it so deep that I kind of forgot about it for a while.” Jep Robertson credits his wife Jessica for bringing to terms with the sexual abuse, revealing that after sharing the shocking details of his childhood, it strengthened their relationship.
It has been a shocking year for reality show sexual molestation crimes to be revealed. First “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo, and Mama June Shannon’s relationship with a convicted sexual child molester, one who was accused of molesting June Shannon’s oldest daughter. That was followed up by another TLC reality family scandal, one more shocking than the last.The Duggar family is facing the aftermath of son Josh Duggar’s admittance to sexually molesting 5 young underage girls four of which were revealed as his sisters.
For the Duggar family the crimes and dark lies and secrets to not end with Josh. It has been alleged that Duggar parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar had known of their son’s crimes for years and hid information along with teh church elders for years. There is no telling where this will all end up for the Duggar’s. For the Shannons and cast of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” their fate has already been sealed. TLC cancelled the reality series and is expected to do the same with “19 Kids and Counting” in the near future.
What terrible tragedy for these families to live through especially the victims who must harbor these crimes committed against them the rest of their lives.
