NOOOOOOOOO!! You guys, our weekends have just been destroyed by the news that former “teen bride” Courtney Stodden is splitting from her 53-year-old husband, Doug Hutchison.We knew them as the best part of Couples Therapy, but we guess it just wasn’t enough to help them go the distance. Did they suffer from “irreconcilable age differences”?
We thought there might be some trouble in paradise when we saw photos of Courtney out on the town in London, seemingly in the arms of another dude (or maybe she was just wasted). And last night she threw a Halloween party at her L.A. home, with Doug nowhere to be seen. “Courtney has changed so much since being in that house,” a source told the Daily Mail. “She is more independent and just wants to have fun like any 19 year old.”
We guess their whopping 34-year age gap was just too much. Or, if we’re to believe fellow Couples Therapy star Simon van Kempen, they just didn’t try very hard during the counseling sessions. “For 98% of the shoot, they didn’t take it seriously,” he told us at the time. And that was just the start of the grievances Simon held against “thefloozie and the geriatric.”
Oof. This is not a time for name-calling, but a time for mourning! Head up to the gallery above to see photos of the couple (and especially of a scantily clad Courtney) in happier times. Rest in peace, Dourtney. You will be missed!
