The singer already cancelled her gig at Leeds’ First Direct Arena on Friday night.

On Friday, the "19 Kids and Counting" alum was transferred out of the Washington County Detention

Center where he’s been held since his conviction in December, FOX 24 reported.

Judge Timothy L. Brooks handed down 151 months to Duggar in May.

Duggar was found guilty in December by a federal jury in Arkansas on charges related to the receipt of child pornography and possession of child pornography.

A judge previously denied a long shot request by Duggar’s attorneys for a new trial on child pornography charges just hours before the former reality star was set to be sentenced. 

Following his guilty verdict in December, Duggar's attorneys released a statement to Fox News Digital at the time, saying they intend to appeal the verdict.

"We appreciate the jury’s lengthy deliberations, we respect the jury’s verdict, and we intend to appeal,"

defense attorneys Justin Gelfand, Ian Murphy, and Travis Story said in December.

U.S. Attorneys in the case held a press conference outside the courthouse after the verdict was announced.
