Courtney Stodden, who made headlines when she married then 50-year-old actor Doug Hutchison at the age of 16, is speaking out about her divorce.
Stodden, now 22, opened up about her split ahead of a divorce themed party in Vegas hosted by some of her scantily clad gal pals.
Via The Ashley:
“We’re splitting, so this has been a really difficult time for me. Doug and I aren’t making these [divorce] arrangements like a business deal. It’s really sensitive and, even though things have been leading in the direction [of divorce] for a while, we are really starting to feel that we are not together anymore.”
“I got married at 16, so Doug’s been around for so long. I look at him as a figure in my life in so many regards. We’re breaking up but we still want to remain in each other’s life, if we can manage to do that after all the smoke clears.”
“A split is really hard. Doug and I are on really good terms but it’s just hard, you know, because we’re trying to hang on to our friendship because we are best friends and we don’t want to part in a disastrous Hollywood way.”
“We’re talking a lot about business throughout the day. It’s sensitive to talk about our own issues right now, so I think we’re kind of just talking mostly about business and then when we do talk about what we’re going through, it’s just really hard on both of us.”
Via The Sun:
“You know I don’t think I’d recommend it for anyone else, but to each their own. I don’t regret it all because we learned so much over the past six years.”
“I still think I’m healing from a rollercoaster of situations and that [the miscarriage] occurred and different losses. I think…I’m not jumping up and down and completely happy, but I think in this new chapter, like that had a lot to do with it too.”
Stodden and Hutchison announced their split earlier this year after nearly six years of marriage.
