So disturbing.

This just makes our skin crawl.

On Friday, former Survivor contestant Michael Skupin was charged with MULTIPLE counts of child pornography possession.

The 54-year-old — who just went by Skupin on the show — is being charged with six counts after his arraignment. One of the worst parts about this whole thing is that he wasn't even being investigated for kiddie porn.

According to the Attorney General, officials were looking into him for supposedly running a Ponzi scheme, after his alleged victims reached out to a news reporter.

When authorities confiscated his computer for the investigation they found the disgusting materials.

So, in addition to the possession charges, the father-of-three also got slapped with five counts of larceny and one of racketeering.

Joey Feek Update

Rory Feek is continuing to blog about all of the wonderful memories he's shared with his ailing wife Joey as she spends her remaining days battling terminal cancer.

In his latest post dedicated to his cousin and manager Aaron Carnahan on his birthday, the country singer describes all the many ways his life has paralleled to Aaron's.

For instance, both men have been married twice, have three children (one of whom has Down syndrome), and both have wives who have tragically been diagnosed with cancer.

If you think that's nuts, here's an even crazier commonality:

"Aaron's wife Jill grew up in the same farmhouse in Illinois her whole life. She has 4 siblings whose names all begin with letter J… Jeff, Jason, Jeremy and Jamie. My wife Joey grew up in the same farmhouse in Indiana her whole life and she has 4 siblings also. Their names are Jody, Julie, Justin and Jessie."

Whoa!
