Courtney Stodden And Doug Hutchison Announce Split
Love is officially dead.
Courtney Stodden and her husband, actor Doug Hutchison, have announced that they are ending their marriage, E! News reports.
The couple’s rep released the following statement: “After two and a half years of marriage, Courtney and Doug have decided to become legally separated. This is a mutual and amicable decision that they’re making together.”
The statement also confirmed that the couple’s age difference (Courtney is 19, Doug is 53. Barf…) played a role in the split.
“As you know, Courtney was married at a young age. Now, at nineteen, she’s interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult—with the freedom to explore her independence.”
Although the marriage may be over, the pair’s professional relationship will continue, according to a rep who said, “The two will remain living in the same house [for now] in separate bedrooms, and Doug will be co-managing Courtney’s career.”
Courtney and Doug later issued their own statement which read, “We love each other very much, want for each other’s happiness, and will continue being the best of friends for life.”
