I am pretty sure we all saw this coming....
Courtney Stodden, 19, and Doug Hutchinson, 53, are ending their three-year relationship, according to Radar online. Sources told the tabloid that the child bride is "heartbroken" since "busting out" of her marriage. Thankfully they announced it on a Friday so we could have the weekend to recover. Before you condemn anything did you realize their union lasted longer than Kim Kardashian's last marriage? I wonder if he has to pay her alimony or child support. She still is under 21!
Most people have commented throughout their marriage that a 16 year-old isn't mature enough to make these kinds of choices in their lives and yet no one knew Traci Lords was 15 in most of her adult films. Lords was the one who committed the crime with forged papers and birth certificate and I have no doubt Stodden knew what she was doing. I watched Couples Therapy (no, it was not court ordered, I just put myself through it) and I believe Doug really loved her. That being said, it was ever apparent she was in it for the publicity and that was it. My father used to have a saying about used cars that would apply to Courtney Stodden:
"She may be late model, but one look and you can tell that she's high mileage and ALL the miles were hard."
I know that people are still asking to see Obama's birth certificate, but I really would like to see this girl's long-form. I've never seen an interview with anyone who admitted attending school with her or living in her neighborhood. Why would her parents marry her off, when the groom is receiving social security and the bride is taking her finals in high school, something seems wrong with this scenario.
Reports are coming through daily that Doug is “heartbroken and angry” when he was forced to pack his bags. Too bad everyone but the Green Mile actor could see this plane heading towards the side of the mountain. He got used, abused and kicked to the curb--and it only took 3 short years.
Writing this brought back memories of the tragic ending of Dorothy Stratton by the hands of her older husband/manager. Hopefully, Stodden and Hutchinson will get through this, but least we don't have to worry about the potential of their offspring existing anymore.
No matter what happened in this fateful marriage I will still believe in love as long as Bowie and Iman are together!
