I just creeped Courtney Stodden’s Instagram (NSFW) and it’s clear that she’s still with her husband, Doug Hutchison. It’s also clear that Courtney is drugged and/or drunk in most of the photos. Maybe her eyes just always look glossed over as a coping mechanism. These two married back in 2011, when Courtney was 16 and Doug was 51. He’s a character actor who has had parts on The X Files and Lost and she’s an aspiring model and singer. The only way Courtney was able to marry Doug was with her mother Krista’s consent, and Krista has defended the marriage and admitted encouraging Courtney to get to know Doug through email after they contacted him for acting lessons. So this whole relationship was probably orchestrated and encouraged by Krista, who was Courtney’s manager for quite some time. Only now Krista says she’s estranged from Courtney and that it’s Doug’s fault. As a result, she regrets letting Courtney marry him. Incidentally, Courtney just turned 21 over the weekend. She already has a solo sex tape. Here’s what Krista told Radar Online:
Krista Stodden, the former teen bride’s momager, was by her side when she moved to Hollywood after marrying Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison, who she met online. While her young daughter has run the gauntlet from nude photos to a sex tape and even a trial separation from Hutchison, she was there to guide her the entire way. But now, Krista insists she’s done.
“Courtney is turning 21 and this will be the first time in my life that I have not been with my daughter on her birthday. Things are still very icy between us and I have not talked to her since she and I went our separate ways,” Krista told Radar..
“I believe there are external influences without any names being said,” Krista told Radar. “I do not believe mothers and daughters should be separated.”
“I think that if a husband can see that there are problems between his wife and her mother I believe he should stay out of the situation,” Krista continued, calling out Hutchison. “There are some really horrible things that he has done to me since she and I have not been speaking that will be very hard to ever forget about…
“I do take full responsibility, however because I am the one that did sign the paper for her to marry this man,” Krista admitted. “If I had to do it all over again I cannot tell you if I would be signing that paper.”
Krista, who has started her own management company, Krista Keller Talent Management, and is representing stars like award-winning TV talk show host John Kerwin, told Radar that she is distraught over the situation with Stodden.
“I encourage husbands to not divide but encourage a healthy relationship between mother and daughter,” she insisted. “And it is not unusual for mothers and daughters to occasionally have their disagreements. Maybe he just doesn’t know any better.”
“I really do miss her. I am not sure what is going to change us not speaking. I worked so hard when I was managing her and I learned a lot so I will be grateful for that experience. I have handed it over to God because when you are separated from your daughter that is a big thing to try to deal with on your own.”
But Krista told Radar that she hasn’t given up hope for a reconciliation.
“Our professional relationship unfortunately got in the way of our mother-daughter relationship,” she explained. “I’m hoping when Courtney gets a little older she will understand that I will continue to pray for Courtney and I to someday be able to speak and have a loving mother and daughter relationship. I am blessed to have three daughters and four grandchildren, but when there is one child missing out of your family it can be very sad and heartbreaking.”
Ultimately, she said she believes Hutchison is standing in the way: “That’s what makes it so difficult is that he loves the way things are right now he has my daughter all to himself. She and I were so close and I think that really bothered him.”
Read between the lines. This is not about Krista not having a relationship with her daughter, this is about money. Krista is no longer her daughter’s manager and she’s pissed that she’s been cut off, not that she’s not in contact with her. Courtney is old enough to make her own decisions, but she’s been controlled and managed and sold off to a man the same age as her dad. The only thing she is in control of is her sexuality, and she has one setting for that. It’s really sad. I thought she was breaking away from this guy but apparently not.
