And although we have witnessed many marriages with an incredible age difference, this was simply too much because at the time they stood in front of the altar he was 50 and she was only 16 years old.

The media then wrote that the couple met at his acting workshop and that love, at first sight, happened between them. Since Courtney Stodden was a minor at the time, family, colleagues, and friends of the popular actor abandoned him overnight because they felt their love was sick.

They were married in 2011, and although he was happily in love, the actor’s career took a downward trajectory. Needless to explain why ... Although the couple decided to end the relationship in 2016, they only officially divorced in 2020 when the starlet opened her soul and revealed how she felt over the years.‘I was afraid to mention verbal attacks during these years because I was a child and he was 50 when we got married. I’m a woman now and it’s time to finally speak up. I felt trapped, he manipulated me and I felt like I was growing up in a very lonely and dark place. For Doug, I will always love you, but I will always be miserable. You left me, belittled and confused, but I will get over it and wish you all the best. But please don't do anything like this to any minor anymore. It’s not fair, and kids aren’t at your level. Be good, as I will be ', wrote the starlet who is 27 years old today. The actor himself later stated that this relationship ruined his life and career, but that he still does not regret anything.

Courtney is currently in a relationship with her manager, 42-year-old Chris Sheng, with whom she recently got engaged, and many say she looks much older due to aesthetic surgeries and hectic life.
