Courtney Stodden Reportedly Split From Doug HutchisonBy: Amanda Crum - November 4, 2013
Courtney Stodden hasn’t been married to her husband for three years yet, but the couple have already weathered enough issues to warrant counseling on the VH1 show “Couples Therapy” and attended an 8-week course over the summer that was designed to help increase communication and intimacy.
“We’re interested in keeping our marriage and sex life stimulated and starting now instead of waiting until it plays out,” Hutchison said. “We communicate to each other. We want to please each other ultimately.”
The couple famously married when Courtney was just 16 and Hutchison was 51, and it’s rumored that some problems arose while she was on the set of “Celebrity Big Brother” in the UK a couple of months ago. According to The Daily Mail, Stodden got a little handsy with one of her castmates during a challenge where they had to be tied together, and the cameras caught it all. Stodden also reportedly confided in castmate Lauren Harries that being away from her husband while she was in the house was making her feel independent…in a bad way.
“He means so much more to me than this freaking house and I don’t want to leave this house feeling so strong and independent that I can’t depend on him anymore,” she said.
“Courtney has changed so much since being in that house. She is more independent and just wants to have fun like any 19 year old,” a “source” told TDM.
The couple has had no comment on the reported split, but Hutchison was MIA during Stodden’s Halloween bash at their home over the weekend.
