Courtney Stodden has a new older man in her life. The 19-year-old left her 53-year-old hubby, Doug Hutchinson, just a few weeks ago. She was spotted at an event in L.A. with Beverly Hills publicist Edward Lozzi on Thursday evening.
A rep for Stodden claims the two are definitely not a couple, however.
"They are just friends. They met at a prior event," her rep said in an interview with FOX411.
Do you see a trend here? Courtney Stodden--wth the full support of her parents--has transformed herself into a busty beauty, replete with what most believe to be implants that are far too large for her tiny frame. She married Doug Hutchinson before she was even legal--again with permission from her (wacky) parents. Now she is seemingly enthralled with an even wealthier older--Lozzi is also 53--man.
Edward Lozzi was a White House Press Advance staffer under President Bush during the 1990s. He is the founder of a Beverly Hills public relations firm. Do you see where Courtney Stodden's train of thought likely is regarding this man? Just imagine the publicity he could afford the camera-hungry 'wannabe.'
The real question here is whether or not Lozzi will bite. Will he seen a future--either personal or professional--with the publicity-mongering 19-year-old who has no known talent? After all, she became a household name for marrying Doug Hutchinson at the age of 16.
Of course it should be mentioned that Edward Lozzi had a former girlfriend who, for all intents and purposes, looked and acted a lot like Courtney Stodden. He dated the late Anna Nicole Smith.
Courtney Stodden's rep can say what he or she wants to the press. There are some very interesting dynamics in play here. From the similarity in age to Doug Hutchinson and her dream to be a star, Courtney sees something she feels she needs and can possibly get from Edward Lozzi. And who knows? Lozzi may take the bait--along with a few fringe benefits. It's entirely possible that Anna Nicole Smith saw something in the publicist, too, besides an older man with lots of money and connections.
