Adult-film actress Danica Dillon is suing Josh Duggar for assault after he allegedly "manhandled" her while they were having sex, People reports. Dillon went public with the charges in August, and is now seeking $500,000 in damages against the former TLC star, whom she claims left her with "physical and emotional injuries." The actress says she met Duggar in March, when she was performing at a Philadelphia strip club where he was a patron. After buying lap dances from her, he allegedly invited her to his hotel room; once they began having sex, she says, Duggar became physically aggressive and made her feel "as if she were being raped." Dillon also claims Duggar showed up weeks later at another club where she was working, ostensibly to apologize, only to assault her again. Duggar has been in a faith-based rehab center since August, after hackers revealed he had an account on the extramarital dating site Ashley Madison. He has also confessed to molesting several underage girls as a teenager, including four of his sisters.
