What we know about Lindsey Beth
Josh shared a close bond with his sister Lindsey Beth. Once, Josh even said he only came to the show because of his sister. The Islander has shared a couple of pictures with Lindsey on his personal Instagram account.
Meanwhile, Lindsey’s Instagram account is set on private. There isn’t much information available about her personal and neither did Josh share any details regarding his sister’s demise.
In 2018, Josh posted a picture with Lindsey wishing her a happy birthday and the caption read, “Congrats for being a quarter century dead….much love for u sis”. Going by what he has written, we can assume Lindsey was in her later 20s.
The most recent picture of Josh with his sister is from 2019, where the siblings are seen alongside their mother. He wrote in the caption of the lovely picture, “Happy whatever we celebrate”.
