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.

He should be prosecuted for sexual assault and battery of a child, and her parents should be charged with fasilitation.

this dave guy has some issues!! i bet if he said that to a fathers who has a 16 17 18 year old daughter face he would be in the hospital!! Dave youre a perv that needs help!!!! Dont get me wrong im all for sexy.. what im not for is a man thinking its ok to take a teen who is still learning and developing the knowledge on life and what is ok and not ok... im sorry but a 16 17 year old thinks sex is just sex and they dont see the bigger picture and someone who takes advantage of that way of thinking is a person who thinks the way that you do!!! Do you understand that even if the young girl thinks its ok now when they get older and realize sex is more then just something you give away they will look back and realize they were taken advantage of regret what they did!! Dave you honestly need some education on child development because you obviously have no idea that your twisted out look on this subject is completely sick!!

I suspect her mother was just trying to get her married off and out of town, before she got knocked up and infected with aids by the local weed dealers, meth freaks and herion junkies.

A girl that looks like that is just a target for every hard dick loser without a home, a job, or future.

If some woman offered me a sixteen year old bride that looked like that I'd be suspicious as hell of a police setup. Then I'd be asking a lawyer for advice, and If he gave an all clear, I'd have married her too.

My own mother was only 17 when she married shortly after world war 2

!6 or 17, whats the difference. Some girls are ready to go and be a woman early, it's always been that way. Look around America and see how many 16 year olds are having children, some have two, and not twins!. At least courtney isn't pregnant, unmarried and collecting welfare.

Biology hasn't changed that much in the last 60 years.

Actually, it would be interesting to find out if girls are maturing even earlier than they did 200 years ago when 16 was a common age for a girl to be married to a much older man.

Dudes back in the day used to marry young chicks. When she turns 18, everyone will shut up. Her mom signing her over him is a real man's dream. Now I'm not saying it's good to marry a 16 year old but let's face it the law doesn't apply here. Only those who have no game settle for the old menopause smelling females.

P.S. - in this case being in Hollyweird, I'm glad he didn't marry a 16 year old boy.

@ Dave If that's what you need to believe in order to justify molesting underage girls, then so be it.

tired of hearing about them    

I just noticed the headline refers Courtney Stodden's husband. Funny he was the actor and now he is Mr. Courtney Stodden. Maybe that is why he is so pissed off.

It's funny people ganging up on DaveT, when he provided well thought out intelligent answers. People can bitch all they want about Doug & Courtney being "wrong", but it's THEIR LIVES, & their marriage is considered LEGAL by Church & State. So they are not breaking any laws. People can waste their precious energy being negative, or just let them be happy, & mind their own business!

They don't need couples counseling. He needs to go to jail & register as a sex offender! She needs to live a normal teenage life....2 years of her childhood have been wasted married to this guy. Her parents should be jailed too for handing their child to a predator. They needed to protect her but instead they put her in harms way!

DaveT, I admire your well thought out & fair minded discussion. BY the time the show will air, Courtney would have already turned 18, & would be considered a legal adult, & both Doug & Courtney will finally be able to live their lives peacefully far away from ridicule & judgmental attitudes towards them!
