Courtney Stodden's Husband

'Couples Therapy' Co-Star

Calls Him a 'Child Molester'

EXCLUSIVE

0816_doug_huchitson_richie_tmz_article17-year-old Courtney Stodden's 52-year-old husband is a "child molester" -- at least that's what one his "Couples Therapy" co-stars called him on set last week ... and it's creating massive tensions among the cast.

The show began filming last week -- and sources tell TMZ, when Courtney's husband Doug Hutchison introduced himself to TheDirty.com's Nik Richie ... Richie refused to shake his hand.

According to sources, Richie then called the guy a "child molester" and refused to say another word to him.

We're told Doug was deeply offended by the remark and has been extremely upset since. The standoff has created a rift among the cast.

FYI -- Doug married Courtney in Vegas last year ... when she was just 16. Courtney's mother had to sign a consent form permitting the marriage because Courtney was under 18 at the time.

True fact.

If it was my daughter I would kick his azz. Her parents should be ashamed of themselves and he is a filthy perv.

One of the few times I'm on Nik's side on this. It's creepy and gross that this 52-year-old married a 16-year-old that is already addicted to pills.

To correct him. A child is someone who has not gone through puberty yet.

The women has actually been an adult since her period started just not a legal adult according to the government.

HAHAHAHA! Go Nik! Finally, someone's calling this CHILD MOLESTER out for what he really is. Who cares about his feelings? Anybody with half a brain can see what his motives are. Keep her drugged up enough so that she'll do whatever he says. He should be in jail.

It's funny people here to judge & condemn Doug for marrying this young lady. The truth is, they've been married for over a year now, & she will be 18 in just a few days, definitely no longer a "child". IF Doug is a "child molester", than the same can be said about Elvis, or even Brad Pitt who once dated a then 15 year old Juliette Lewis! The shocker! If Doug & Courtney make each other happy than I wish them lots of Love & Happiness!
