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."
