“It’s March 3rd, 2022 – today I am officially divorced from actor Doug Hutchison. It’s an emotional day for me. God only knows how he’s feeling, but I can tell you that it’s for the better. I look back at this picture and feel absolutely taken advantage of”, Courtney wrote on Instagram.

She continued: “I’ve been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost ten-year marriage because I was a child and he was 50 when we married, but I’m a woman now, and it’s time for me to put my big girl pants on and speak on this matter”.

Stodden announced that she is writing a book. “I’ve felt completely trapped, manipulated, and at times abandoned by adults // growing up in such an environment — it became a lonely and dark place. Stay tuned for my book”, she wrote.

She also had a message for Doug. “I’ll always love you; yet I’ll always be angry. You’ve left me — a child woman, feeling belittled and confused. These things I shall overcome. I wish you well. But please don’t ever do this to another minor again. It’s not right… even if the parent signs off. Wait a respectable amount of time before marrying. Children aren’t on your level. I’ll always love you regardless. Be better. As shall I”, the 25-year-old Courtney Stodden wrote on her Instagram profile.
