Teen bride Courtney Stodden and husband Doug Hutchinson are said to be splitting up and she will be filing for divorce from her much older husband soon. According to reports from several sources close to the couple it was announced just today that Stodden had decided to end the relationship after three years of marriage.
Hutchinson, 53, was often accused of being a pedophile for marrying the then 16 year old Stodden even though the teen had her parents permission to do so. Stodden used Hutchinson to make her name a brand and put herself into the public eye and now that she has branched out and is investing in projects on her own, there is no longer a need to stay married to Hutchinson say sources.
The couple were often photographed together in public but have not been seen or photographed together for the better part of the last month fueling the rumors that Stodden is headed toward divorce.
There are rumors that Stodden has a new love interest but in order to save her public image that she has worked so long to build that is being kept hush-hush and it is though that the couple will make a public announcement soon that will not portray either in a negative light.
