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.

Her parents are gross. It's disgusting we allow parents to sign away underage children when we know damn well some people shouldn't even be parents in the first place! They couldn't care less about her to allow this union. Oh yeah, she wanted to be a country singer or something like that, right? We'll benefit if marrying her to some actor gets her a record deal. Real smart parents Courtney has. I don't see why any movie or tv show company would ever hire this perv. I bet if he had a daughter he wouldn't let some 52 year old touch her!!

He's not achild molester, not even close.
Pedophiles are sexually attracted to children aged 11 and under.
Perfectly normal to attracted to young men or women age 16....and perfectly legal in *most* of the United States...and *most* of the world.
And why is that? Why is it legal in *most* of the U.S. and *most* of the world for a 16 year old young man or woman to have sex and/or marry?
Because *most* of society sees it for what it is...perfectly normal.
Men being *wrongly* called pedophiles when they have sex with or marry young just the results of a society influenced by feminists...a bunch of bitter jealous older women who can't stand it when a tight-bodied, flirty, pretty young woman in her late teens walks in and all the men turn their heads and watch her wiggle around the room ;)

I agree, but Nik Richie is no prize either. That website of his is disgusting and so nasty towards women, and he made sure to marry this Lamas bimbo, I'm sure money had nothing to do with it ...

Nik Richie's refusing to shake someone's hand? Isn't that the ultimate example of the pot calling the kettle black? And Davet, why do you keep using *asterisks* as *quotations marks* around words that don't need to be in quotation marks? It makes you looked like a *pretentious* *douchebag*.

While I think Doug H is a sick and disgusting pervert I'm really tired of people throwing around the term child molester for anything they don't like. When you misuse that word you make it more acceptable when it should bring revulsion and the horror the name implies. A child molester is a person who has sex with PRE-pubescent children.. As a survivor of childhood molestation it sickens me when you people do not use the term for what it is intended and YOU make the word an acceptable term to just throw out there whenever you please.

Wow ...    

I don't know who this guy Nik is, but good for him!!!!! I hope he continues to tell the truth. The staffers at couples therapy - well I hope they tell this 17 year old girl the very same thing. Her 'husband' is nothing but a child molester. EWWWW, makes my skin crawl.

He thinks he deserves special treatment because he THINKS he is talented..... apparently his role in Shawshank was easy for him seeing as his is such A DOUCHEBAG in person. He and her stupid ass excuse for a mother should be sharing a cell while this girl gets some therapy.

Correction... He is a legal Child-Molestor. But let's face it. None of us sane people made the rules.

These two put their lives on full blast with an extra helping of stupidity, and then are shocked that no one (except Topaz/Twinkles) agrees with them! So they keep trying to force themselves on the public! Newsflash, Doug, NO ONE IS REQUIRED TO ACCEPT YOU AND YOUR 'SITUATION'! So stop acting all butt-hurt and petulant when people are DISGUSTED by you and your homophobic, sleazy, stupid, racist, scripture-defiling 'wife'!!!! If your marriage was 'rill', you'd have kept your mouths SHUT about the wedding, the age difference, etc, but it's been a publicity stunt from the start, just like being on this show, since you couldn't get your OWN 'reality' show! Reality has nothing to do with EITHER of you!

If it's "perverted"...why do the majority of people agree to an age of consent at 16 years old?
Because the majority of people realize it's not perverted, not pedophilia, and perfectly normal ;)

The only reason people have big fits about it is because jealous, controlling, profit-seeking, man-hating feminists have inundated the public with over dramatized reactions to normal behavior ;D
Feminist bureaucrats at Planned Parenthood make hundreds of millions off of abortion, Planned Parenthood receives almost $400 million a year in *taxpayer* funding, then submit mandatory reports of profits of..almost $400 million, profits in their *pockets*
Convincing young women that sex and pregnancy are *wrong*....gets a lot of young women to run to Planned Parenthood abortion clinics...because the young women feel so judged, criticized, and "wrong" for getting pregnant.
For every young woman that gets an abortion at Planned Parenthood, that's another *statistic* on the petition reports they send in to get grant money from taxpayers to fund their multi-million dollar paychecks
Feminist bureaucrats are getting rich off of brainwashing society into judging young women and insulting them and making them feel pressured into getting abortions
Feminist bureaucrats are filthy despicable pigs
It's perfectly normal for a young woman to have sex, get married, and raise children ;)

It's a joke he actually thought he would be accepted by the cast unconditionally. They are only doing this show to further his disgusting wife's fame....they aren't serious about looking for counseling. Also, he is a child molester, so if the shoe fits...wear it. Those clowns deserve each other though, his wife is an example of how ugly humans can truly be.

Before you start saying he's a child molester ...think about it. Do you REALLY think they are having sex? Or do you really think its just a deal between them to get some notoriety and a showcase.
