The stunning rumor is now a reality.
It is all over for Courtney Stodden and Doug Hutchison.
The couple, who made nauseating headlines in 2011 when they got married despite a 35-year age difference, have released a joint statement in which they confirm their separation.
"After two and a half years of marriage, Courtney and Doug have decided to become legally separated," the pair said, via The Daily Mail. "Courtney was married at a young age. Now, at nineteen, she's interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult -- with the freedom to explore her independence."
But while initial reports claimed Hutchison was heartbroken over the split, this statement claims he's totally on board with his wife's
desire to date younger, hotter men independence.
"Doug supports Courtney 100 percent," the statement continued. "The two will share custody of their precious pup, Dourtney, remain living in the same house [for now] in separate bedrooms, and Doug will be co-managing Courtney's career."
This set-up may sound odd, but both sides are allegedly all for it. They conclude:
"We love each other very much, want for each other's happiness, and will continue being the best of friends for life."
That's all well and good. But it's gonna be awkward when Doug is the cameraman behind the inevitable Courtney Stodden sex tape.
