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.

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!

I'm gland Ritchie called him out. Now he either has to live with being labeled a child molester, or the whole age sham has to come to light. Courtney is 20, soon to be 21. The very clear evidence is out there, funny TMZ could never be bothered to google for it. This chick has a huge paper trail of blogs and beauty pageants where her real age is easily found. The whole under age thing is a sham for publicity and notoriety. Bad press is better than no press, eh?

The 17 year old wife looks like a 50 year old whore who has lived a very rough life, nothing cute let alone sexy about her. The "husband" does belong in jail, no doubt about it.

Doug may not be a child molester by the definition of the law, but he's creepy nevertheless! This marriage is as real as Dolly Parton's hair! Do they really think they have us convinced that she's desperately in love with a over the hill has-been? And she just acts so skanky it's obvious that it's her "schtick". She is trying to act sexy even though she has no idea what sexy really is. These people both make me want to spew!! Even Nik Richie can't stand them and that says a lot!!

How is he a child molester? She is 16, it's legal.. he may well be a lot older than her but the point is, she is at the legal age of consent and can decide for herself whether she wants to be with him or not. If he was off having sex with 12 year olds then I would agree with you but if we're happy for 16 year olds to be parents, then they're old enough to decide who they want to be with. Only time will tell if they're good for each other but it's nothing new for celebrities to get married too soon.

Okay, different scenario. Girl is 18, man is , say, 60. She has no feelings for him, but it would be in her best interests, financially, to be with him, but she ain't going for it. So, the man conspires to kidnap her, forces her to sign marriage papers, and they live as man and wife. She may become fond of him later, but, was it right the way it was brought about? Hey, she's legal, right? That is all that matters...morals, etc, matter not to some weirdos here. Especially Topaz "I want to wear Courtney's skin so Doug will f*ck me" Michelle/Twinkles there...
