Many people sarcastically tweeted their shock over the reported demise of the couple’s May-December marriage, with one user saying, “LOVE IS DEAD.” Read on for all the details.

Courtney first made headlines when she married Doug in May 2011 — with her parents’ blessing — when she was just 16 years old.

Poor Courtney! These comments are probably the last things she needs right now.
Courtney Stodden & Doug Hutchison Separate — Teen Bride Is ‘Done With’ Doug
Courtney may be a joke on Twitter but her and Doug’s heartache is very real.
“Courtney has called it quits on her marriage,” a source close to the couple tells Radar Online. “She is done with him and he’s totally heartbroken.”
“Doug knew he was taking a risk with the marriage, but he genuinely feel in love with Courtney and didn’t realize how much his life would be changed after they got married,” the source adds.
Courtney and Doug appeared together on the reality show Couples Therapy in 2012, but since then Courtney has been booking solo gigs, including one on Big Brother in the UK.
“She is branching out and doing her own thing and Doug is getting left behind,” the source continues. “Everything with Courtney and Doug is so contrived, but he wasn’t with her at her Halloween party and she’s always doing things by herself lately. He just isn’t part of the scene anymore now. They’ll probably stage a photo opp just to pretend they’re still together though.”
Courtney, who recently got DD-cup breast implants, hasn’t been seen with Doug since Oct. 2, according to Radar. The source says Courtney is postponing announcing the split because she is hoping to star in a reality show about her finding new love.
But Radar’s source swears the relationship is really “over.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is it mean to make fun of Courtney and Doug so soon after their split? Let us know.
