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 is right, I don't know what else you can call a 52 year old man who wants to have sex with a 16 year old child? What is wrong with him that he can't have a relationship with a woman who is an adult? This girl has been exploited her whole life by her POS mother. The adults in her life have all but turned her into a whore and failed her on many levels. In a few short years, when she's been used up and tossed out, we'll be reading about her prescription drug addiction/OD/ rehab stint/attempted suicide/etc.Her creeper husband can go back to trolling the high schools for a woman and her mom will write a memoir about how hard her life is.
