Courtney, 19, is breaking her silence after her separation from husband of two years Doug Hutchison, 53, was announced on Nov. 5. The teen bride reveals in a new interview that she is divorcing Doug because she doesn’t want to ‘neglect her youth.’
Ouch! Courtney Stodden is newly single and she wants to keep it that way. The reality star, who famously married Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison at the age of 16, has finally come clean about the reason behind their sudden split, saying she wants to “be free.” Read on for more details!
Why Did Courtney Stodden And Doug Hutchison Split? — She Wants Her Independence
Courtney is finally speaking out about her imminent divorce from Doug in an exclusive clip from E! News.
So sad — especially because Courtney used to lovingly call Doug her “soulmate.” The controversial pair made it far beyond anyone’s expectations, almost hitting the three-year mark on their marriage, but it looks like it just wasn’t meant to be.
Courtney clearly has some growing up to do — and we’re totally behind her.
Courtney Stodden Saw Doug Hutchison As A Father Figure
It’s been a tough year for odd couple Courtney and Doug — so their Nov. 5 split may come as no surprise to some. The Daily Mail reports Courtney’s stint on Celebrity Big Brother in the UK and her flirty encounters with housemate Mario Falcone, 25, drove Doug over the edge. Courtney was starting to feel more “independent” from Doug, who was becoming more of a father figure than a partner to the teen.
And in 2012, we saw their marital troubles play out on-screen when the couple were featured on Couples Therapy. Courtney was accused of texting her ex — and age of course played a major role in their arguments. We’re guessing their issues weren’t resolved when the cameras were off.
