Courtney Stodden's Husband

'Couples Therapy' Co-Star

Calls Him a 'Child Molester'

8/19/2012 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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'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.

Nik Richie just said what the rest of us were already thinking.

Couldn't you be honest and put "Paid Promotion" in these kinds of stories? No one believes this is something you dug up on your own. You were handed the story by the show as a marketing method and as usual are more than happy to pass it on as a "real" story.

Stop hating on this old man because he's banging a better looking chick than anyone on here has. Everything was done legally, noone put a gun to her head. And who the hell is Nic Richie?

Nik is a douchebag, but in this case he's right on the money...

I'm no fan of Richie's, but I completely agree with him on this one.

Hahaha :D
16 years old = legal age of consent in *most* of the United States
16 years old = legal age of consent in *most* of the world
16 years old = 2-4 years older than many of your great-great grandparents married and had kids

"Child molester" = pedophile = person who is sexually attracted to children who are *prepubescent*.....preteen....under the age of 11
Hebephilia = sexually attracted to children ages 11-14
Ephebophilia = sexually attracted to young men and women ages 15-19....and quite normal ;)

You know you're true s*** when you make Nik Richie sick. This might be the only thing he's ever been right on.

I have to agree that this guy is worse than the slim build up in a urinal pipe. Not just because he married a 16 year old but because It is so obvious that Courtney is very mentally impaired and clearly unable to navigate herself in the world. I'm very surprised that there was no investigation into this situation based on those facts alone besides the age difference. I mean seriously he comes off looking like the demonistic orderly raping pre teens in a mental institution.

He is a child molester. Why would he be offended at Nicks reaction? Not everyone is on board with these type of disgusting acts.

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

"Child molester"??? Who does this toolbag think he is? I've never even heard of him until just now. She hasn't been a "child" since probably puberty. And the fact that he's on that show shows he must be a real winner. He's no better than Hutchison. Reminds me of the Situation & the Unit from Jersey Shore. Just a bunch of tools in the same big box.

Let's not paint Miss Thing into a Little Red Riding Hood. The law says she was a child but in reality she ain't no child. Take your blinders off. Her parents should be eviscerated for the way they raised this female.
