Hutchison's Ex


American television personality and singer Courtney Stodden came to prominence in 2011 following her controversial marriage to Doug Hutchison, whom she met in an acting workshop. Their marriage received widespread criticism due to their age difference (Stodden was 16, Hutchison was 51), and Hutchison has been labeled a “pedophile” and “predator.” Since then, Stodden has appeared in many television talk shows and has taken parts in the reality TV series “Couples Therapy” (2012) and “Celebrity Big Brother” (2013).

“Right now I'm just looking to have fun and to grow into who I am as a woman and be single and independent and build my own foundation. I'm just my taking the time to be me and be single and be 19 and to try and be as much as a normal 19 year old as I possibly can.” Courtney Stodden

After two years of marriage, Stodden and Hutchison decided to separate in late 2013. According to a legal document they signed on November 9, 2013, the two would continue to live together at their residence despite their legal separation.

Stodden is a vegetarian. She has supported the vegetarian lifestyle on the behalf of PETA.         


Childhood and Family:

Courtney Alexis Stodden was born on August 29, 1994, in Tacoma, Washington, to parents Alex John Stodden (born July 24, 1963) and Krista Kay Stodden (née Keller) (born December 4, 1959). She is the youngest of three daughters. She dropped out of high school and continued on her education by being home schooled through an online private Christian academy.       

On May 20, 2011, Courtney was married to Doug Hutchison in the Chapel of the Flowers in Las Vegas, Nevada. They had significant age gap. Doug was 51 and Courtney was 16. The couple separated in November 2013. She stated, “Doug and I decided to separate and end our marriage because of the obvious - our age gap of 34 years. I know I was quoted a couple years ago saying that age is just a number, but, I mean, I guess to some people it isn't just a number. Our 34-year age difference definitely played a huge major role in our split.”

Celebrity Big Brother


Courtney Stodden was Miss Ocean Shores (Washington) Teen USA 2009 and went on to represent her city in the Miss Washington Teen USA 2010 pageant. Her music career began in 2010 with the release of the music singles “Car Candy,” “Crazy” and “Don't Put It On Me Girl.” She also made promotional music videos for “Car Candy” and “Don't Put It On Me Girl” and for another single called “Hurting People.”

However, Stodden did not receive much attention until she married the 51 year old actor Doug Hutchison in 2011, when she was only 16 years old. Following the controversial marriage, she appeared in television shows like “Good Morning America,” “E! News,” “Father Albert,” “Dr. Drew's Lifechangers” and “The Morning Show” (all 2011).

In 2012, Stodden and her husband were cast in the season two of the VH1 reality television show “Couples Therapy,” which premiered on October 3, 2012. Stodden claimed that they enrolled in therapy in order to resolve issues that came up in their marriage from their age difference. Also in that same year, Stodden launched a music single titled “Reality.”  

In August 2013, Stodden joined the twelfth season of the British version of “Celebrity Big Brother.” She was kicked out of the house on Day 21, two days before the season finale, after earning the least amount of votes to save against Carol McGiffin, Louie Spence, Mario Falcone and Vicky Entwistle.

In November 2013,  Stodden appeared in an episode of “Bethenny” called “Courtney Stodden/Moms with Secrets/How to Take 10 Years Off Your Face with Celebrity Makeup Artist Kristopher Buckle.”
