After two years of marriage, actor Doug Hutchison and his much younger wife, Courtney Stodden, have decided to split up.
A rep for Stodden, who's now an aspiring country singer, tells People magazine that the pair "will become legally separated." As of now, they're still living in the same house but in separate bedrooms.
Hutchison and Stodden made headlines in 2011 when the "Lost" actor, who was then 51, announced that he and a then-16-year-old Stodden had tied the knot.
The lovebirds acknowledged in a statement that they knew their "vast age difference is extremely controversial. But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."
True love isn't, apparently, timeless. Stodden, now 19, is reportedly interested in living the life of a single woman.
"Courtney was married at a young age," the teen's rep told the Daily Mail. "Now ... she’s interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult with the freedom to explore her independence."
Stodden's estranged husband is said to support her "100 percent," and the couple are expected to share custody of their dog, Dourtney.
"Aspiring singer"??? thats like saying a lump of coal is aspiring to be a diamond........it may happen, but not in this lifetime
This is total bull! And shame on Dourtney for shamefully exploiting this for what is rumored to be a tell all book.
Man's best friend?!? Pftthhh!
and the career in porn starts in 10...9....8....
OMG!!! I am speechless I didn't see that coming!!!
Never saw it coming, I'm shocked, shocked I tell you.
LOL, I know right???
Wow. Who saw that coming? (sarcasm) Time for another Rediculist sketch.
I hear he's combing the high schools right now, looking for her replacement.
You came too the bank with us today and saw my emails and conversation about my bucks...I don't need the man's money....just his pants.
I got the ip in the hair salon last night...see gullible. got you again.
the answer is no. you do not know.
OK.... can someone tell the claim to fame for the following no talent hacks:
There's too much free airtime that makes these morons big deal for no reason.. these imbeciles along with the Palins shouldve gotten as much attention from the media as the Balloon Boy and his family!
The big notes that appear so fascinating are not that swift....no worries here.
I am absolutely shocked...that this marriage actually lasted 2 years.
This guy played like a 4th-tier character on Lost. If that's his claim to fame, he's nobody.
He was actually quite chilling and brilliant in "The Green Mile." Unfortunately, real life showcases his immature personality outside of a movie character.
She isnt 16 anymore – time for a younger model! Just because you married her doesnt mean you still arent a pedo ~ creep.
She's 19 ~ almost a woman now. gross.
except she wasnt 16
ENVY is a pathetic feeling.
Boy I'm really glad to know they will share custody of the dog........
Wow, you mean, the publicity stunt got a bit boring? You don't say.
Fking bore is right
What's Joel McHale going to do now?
She got too old for him. I guess once she turned 18, it wasn't fun for him anymore. Don't worry. I'm sure she'll find another sugar daddy and he'll find another child bride. They've both used each other as much as they can. Time to move on.
Age of consent in New South Wales, Northern Territory, Western Australia, Australian Capital Territory, Victoria and Queensland it is 16 years of age.
Just because something is technically legal does not make it the right thing to do. I mean, it isn't illegal to pretend you are a baby and wear diapers and get aroused when someone cleans you up and changes the diaper for you. There are people with that particular fetish. However, decent and, let's be honest, sane people will call you out for your perversion. At 16, you really are too immature and inexperienced to be making a life decision like getting married. She can't even smoke or drink with parental permission but she can get married? How screwed up is that? We don't trust her decision making skills enough to let her vote, but we do when it comes to entering what is supposed to be a lifetime relationship? Does not make sense. But, hey - it is legal. As long as the old bugger can't go to jail for it, it is a-okay, right?
before you bug people you have too think first...because the other one on the other side of the machine maybe smarter then you are. when you bug people expect poundings right back....you know life is funny that way.
Well, who could see THIS coming??!!
a blind person...
"...the couple are expected to share custody of their dog, Dourtney"
Guys, their dog's name is Dourtney.
if they every saw her in a bar they would run away...she's not a good person.
He killed Mr. Jingles.....Nuff said.....
Nope! I'm still alive
Imposter! Return to thine litterbox from when ye came fowl feline!
Now, you both need to chill out. Have some catnip and relax.
There can only be one!
You are correct....
There can be only one!
I for one can't wait for her eventual stint in the adult movie industry. Sure I would vomit in my own mouth a little if I met her in a bar while sober, but about 8 drinks into the evening she'd be looking like the hottest thing in town. I'm a hetero male. That's how we roll, for better and worse.
Wow. Love is truly dead!
No surprise there, gold digger comes to mind.
She just needed some poor schmuck to help launch her incredible career...and if he happens to have a few bucks in the process....
No surprise there, we all saw that coming to play.
She was naturally pretty, but now she looks cookie-cutter artificial and her lips remind me of swollen hemorrhoids. I'm so sorry. Does she have Body Dysmorphic Disorder?
Why would an old man want to date or marry an underage person? This makes him a phedofile!! Any mother who consents this has no best interest of her child in mind. They should change the law that makes this legal!!!
Totally legal in whatever state they were married in, which I don't care enough about to look up. Age of consent without parental involvement goes down to 16 in several states, and to 14 with parental consent in several others.
I c. So this is legal in a country like United States, which is not a third world country!!! I live in Australia and I don't think this is allowed here. Our police is busy catching pedophiles, while in America, you can just get the consent from the parents to marry their underage kids!! How ironic!!!! Btw, I also read the news about the child star from 'Little Miss Sushine', is dating a 25 year old man. She's 16 now... I found this unbelievable!! In Australia, this would be illigal!!
Down south, age of consent is 14.
You gotta wonder what the mother is like...or not...
This would be ephebophilia, not pedophilia.
Not that I endorse it, but just a few decades ago, in the US, people would send thier 12-14 year old daughters to widowers who happened to be 30, 40 and past 50 years old to marry and help raise thier families without even knowing if the person was mentally ill, a sociopath or abusive. Many cultures around the world, until very recently and some still do, give thier teen daughters to total strangers in pre-arrainged marriages. Obviously, our society has evolved past this and I believe that kids need to be kids and experiance all of the aukwardness of growning up...with other kids.
None of you nitwits knows what a pedophile is. Marrying someone at 16 may be gross but it's not the same thing. Look it up.
They both need a nice refreshing dip in a pool filled with my corn niblet studded trouser chili.
Geeze Al, where do you come up with this stuff...Hilarious!!!
Same stupid joke. Fking bore
You must be new on here.
She still thinks I am baffing Al or the state of LA.....Alvarez is so lost and needs too take something for the
Old wrinkled balls and dried up hag – what a freak show.
Is it just me or does she look A LOT older than 19? And not in a good way, either. Well, to each his (or her) own.
Remind me what episode of "Lost" he was in.
he was in a few episodes. he played horace, he was part of the dharma initiative back in the 1970s
He's an idiot: a lifetime of alimony for a fling with jailbait. They should stay married since they so obviously deserve each other, only I'm afraid they might breed more like them.
LOL you think he's straight. That's so cute. Dude is gayer than an Easter basket. The stunt marriage intending on sparking her career and revitalizing his didn't work so well, so now they end it and he can go hump however many boys he wants.
I agree with the other poster. He always pegged my gaydar. At a minimum, he's bi. It was all about making headlines. As for the people chanting pedophile, The word always gives the impression of an innocent child. She was young, not innocent, and not a victim. I'd bet when they married, she'd been around more then he had.
with all their money:
1. Courtney would be able to find/afford clothing that fits, and
2. Doug wouldn't be so plug ugly if wifey can afford to have all that plastic surgery done.
She will be fine. She is what Hollywood has become....plastic parts, no education and will sleep with anything. Pretty sad.
Perverted pycho moron! Did you really think it would last?
What a pathetic freak.
You must be referring to her.
Courtney Stodden looks like 50 miles of bad road, and she's not even 20. What an over-botoxed, siliconed hag! She makes any one of the Real Housewife's of Orange County look like a grade schooler, and those women are dried up skags themselves.
Does anyone really care about this and if so, why? Life as I know it will go on.....
True the mom gave consent (I wonder what she was thinking at the time, no sane parent would agree to this circus continuing. I have 2 daughters & if either came to me & with this I would be calling the police immediately) that still doesn't make this ok at all. They were married in Nevada, Courtney is from Tacoma, Washington. .. makes you wonder why they went to Nevada if her mother still gave consent ? Maybe because even after parental consent was given, no Priest, Pastor or even Judge would marry them on grounds of age/ morals?! Going on talks shows, proclaiming their love for each other, addressing public opinions/ disgust over this ridiculous farce of a "marriage" being allowed. Sadly this girl's life, credibility,everything is over not to mention a joke to all who see her or read anything about her. Courtney wanted fame & notoriety,I hope it was all worth it, all I've seen has been stupidity.
He is really trading her in for a younger model. Yukky!
Best part of this: "Dourtney". I mean, it's just perfect.
DORTNEY? Wow, should have named the poor thing SOS–STUCK ON STUPID.
I am shocked, shocked...
Round up the usual suspects.
He married her to get the press, and to play with a 16 hottie. Their marriage was part of a short lived reality show.
Parents of teen girls, lock them up. He's single again!
Here is my shocked face......
:o. ~ ~ ~<===8
Stop calling him a :'Lost' actor. He was barely in that show. He's more likely to be remembered for "The Green Mile' or those odd 'X-files' Episodes.
sn't this fun?
Isn't this what life's all about?
Isn't this a dream come true?
Isn't this a nightmare toooo~?
Haha!! Best comment so far...thanks for the laugh.
Never gonna stop, give it up
Such a dirty mind, always get it up
For the touch of the younger kind
My my my i yi Oh!
Yes, yes, yes! Love Oingo Boingo!
Maybe it has something to do with the existing comments. Funny, Cnn is monitoring now?
monitoring bigtime and banning posts and posters....free speech...not so much on PC CNN
"Now ... she’s interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult with the freedom to explore her independence."
Translation: she wants to s a lot of other d
how do you pedophiles know each other
You made a typo there - shoulda had 'us' in place of 'you.'
Was that a rhetorical question, or are you going to tell us how you know other pedophiles? Hmmmm?
Let's see. She was only 16 (is that legal?) and he was 51. Who saw that breakup coming? My question, he was on "Lost"? Which character did he play?
He played Horace Goodspeed in seasons 3-5. He was also a prison guard in The Green Mile. He's also somewhat of a pedophile.
It was legal. Her mother gave consent.
It was 50. Go smoke another dik, s l u t.
And all 50 were fat and ugly, just like u. I guess you gotta take what you can get - or suk what you can get.
You don't 'scare' me, u dried up s k a n k.
Just remember to flush twice, its a long way to their love nest...
