Did Courtney Stodden, 19, split with Doug Hutchison, 53?
She's got her whole life ahead of her to love again! After two very controversial years of marriage, Courtney Stodden has separated from her much-older actor husband Doug Hutchison, a source confirms to Us Weekly. RadarOnline first broke the story that the buxom model and reality star, 19, and the former "Lost" actor, 53, were going their separate ways; no word yet on whether either party has filed divorce papers.
During their courtship and throughout their marriage, much was made about the considerable age disparity between the pair -- and Stodden's countless, photo shoots in barely-there swimsuits and less.
According to the source, Stodden's unusual fame -- which she parlayed into a role on a recent season of "Celebrity Big Brother" in the UK -- was a key factor in the couple's split.
"After Courtney experienced being in 'Celebrity Big Brother' in the UK she realized that there is this whole world out there to explore," the source explains. "She was so reliant on Doug up until doing the show, but after going so far away, she realized she could survive by herself."
The controversial star's time in London was "her first ever experience of having independence," the source says of the outspoken Southerner.
"The dynamics had suddenly totally changed. They've been arguing so much since they came back from London."
