High-profile criminal cases, A-List real estate, and baby on board news also rank as some of their most popular content. This magazine also covers the less scandalous topics of celebrity fitness, fashion favorites, diets, and unexpected sightings.
Never a publication to lose its edge, the magazine lept to the media forefront in 2006. In Touch made history with its acquisition of photos of Daniel Wayne Smith, son of the late Anna Nicole Smith, before his own death in 2006. The images were of Daniel at Anna Nicole's bedside and were the last photos of the young man taken before his passing. The pictures were acquired from Getty Images for $650,000.
As the tragic story of former Playboy Bunny, Anna Nicole Smith, continued to unfold, the world watched as the American actress battled addiction, fought in custody battles, lost her son to an untimely death, and then perished herself. Obtaining the last photos taken of Daniel alive and then featuring them on their cover had masses of people flocking to the newsstand to continue their journey with the Smith family.
Perhaps one of its most controversial articles, the magazine was in the spotlight again in 2015 when it released a police report pertaining to reality TV star Josh Duggar and an investigation into child molestation.
A cast member of the hit reality show, 19 Kids and Counting, Josh Duggar made headlines when accusations arose against him. Accused of molesting his sisters and several other girls, the story broke with In Touch Magazine and its front page police report about the investigation. The events were said to have happened back in 2002 and took the world by storm. Though no criminal charges were ever filed, the general public certainly took notice and turned to the magazine for the most current information regarding the case.
The media outlet would soon make this scandal - and its aftermath - a fairly recurrent cover story. To this day, the Duggar’s are featured on the magazine’s cover and have their own niche on the magazine's website menu.
