Josh Duggar just put another sex scandal behind him.

A porn star dismissed her lawsuit against the former 19 Kids and Counting star Friday, agreeing not to take any further action on her claim that he assaulted her during an allegedly consensual sexual encounter in March, according to court papers obtained by PEOPLE.

Adult film actress and model Danica Dillon – whose real name is Ashley Stamm-Northup – sued Duggar in November for $500,000 in damages. Duggar, 27, filed for a dismissal in December.

The documents show that Duggar’s attorney initially asked Dillon to pay his legal fees and post a statement admitting her allegations were false on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Duggar remains in rehab in a faith-based rehabilitation center in Rockford, Illinois, where he checked in last August after confessing to cheating on his wife Anna and being addicted to pornography. Months earlier, he apologized for inappropriately touching five underaged girls – including two of his sisters – as a teenager.

Anna opened up about supporting her husband during their “difficult year” in a blog post last month.

“Just recently I visited Josh. It was an important step on a long difficult road,” she wrote. “I want to thank all of you for your prayers and your messages of hope. I can never express how your kindness and prayers have brought encouragement when I needed it most – outpacing the grief and discouragement at every turn. I trust that God will continue to show His love and tenderness toward us and bring beauty from ashes – somehow – as only He can do. Please continue to pray for me, Josh and our children.”
