Jinger Duggar rubs NYC trip in face at estranged parents as she rides subway after family ‘banned’ her from town
JINGER Duggar continues to defy the strict fundamentalist rules of her parents, Jim Bob and Michelle, with a ride on the New York City subway with her husband.
The Counting On star flew into town to celebrate the release of her new book, Becoming Free Indeed.
But Jinger, 29, didn’t make light of her getaway, sharing photos of Times Square and even the New York City subway.
The exposure of the photo came as a bit of a surprise as her parents had previously banned her from moving to big cities or even visiting them.
That didn’t stop the rebellious Duggar daughter from sharing a selfie on the train as she traveled from district to district.
Jinger took to her Instagram Stories on Monday night to share a selfie with her husband Jeremy, 35, while on the subway.
The couple smiled happily while wearing matching black coats on their adventure.

ACTUALLY BECOME FREE
While distancing herself from her famous parents, Jinger appeared to be enjoying the sights of New York.
The TV star visited a Barnes & Noble bookstore to promote her tell-all book.
The memoir revealed what the TV personality experienced in her restrictive beliefs as she was commanded to always obey her parents and other authority figures and to avoid virtually all aspects of pop culture.
While conducting several interviews and book signings with fans, Jinger filmed views of the famous skyline and snapped photos among skyscrapers.
STRICT URBAN POLICIES
Traveling to the city that never sleeps has been a dream of Jinger’s for many years, especially since her parents banned her from visiting the city.
In 2012, she gushed about The Five Boroughs on an episode of 19 Kids and Counting, refusing to “live three hours outside of civilization.”
Then, in March 2013, matriarch Michelle made it clear that she would not approve of her daughter’s move to Empire City.
The 19-year-old mother told Radar Online: “Jinger didn’t mean she wanted to move to New York City.
“She said she would like to live closer to a city. We’re talking in close proximity to a city, but not New York City.
“Jinger said she wanted to live 15 minutes from a Walmart. We live on 50 acres so far out of town, but Jinger wants to live closer to town so she doesn’t have to travel so far to shop,” she claimed.
Before Jinger’s older brother was sentenced to 151 months in prison for child pornography, Josh Duggar, 34, moved to Washington DC with his wife and children.
Michelle suggested her daughter visit the nation’s capital at the time on an extended trip.
“Jinger would love to spend time with her brother and all of their children in Washington.
“New York City is far better than what we would ever consider a city to move to!”
Jinger and Jeremy are parents to two children: daughters Felicity, four, and Evangeline Jo, one.
The couple reside in Los Angeles, far from their family home in Arkansas, where they settled in July 2019.
