In May, Brian Austin Green broke his silence about Megan Fox’s blooming relationship with musician Machine Gun Kelly aka Colson Baker and announced it in an episode of his podcast ‘With Brian Austin Green’ that he and his former wife had decided to separate.
Although their relationship was speculated to be troubled, the couple held on to their marriage for many years. Fox and Green share three children together — seven-year-old Noah Shannon, six-year-old Bodhi Ransom, and three-year-old Journey River. While the ‘Transformers’ actress was spotted with her alleged beau quite a few times in the recent past, Green was recently seen taking a stroll with the ‘Celebs Go Dating’ fame Courtney Stodden. In a few pictures shared by Daily Mail, Green and Stodden are seen exiting a restaurant.
Who is Courtney Stodden?
Stodden is a 25-year-old multidimensional American media personality who is popular for appearing in reality TV shows, ‘Couples Therapy’, ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ and ‘The Mother/Daughter Experiment’. She is also widely known for her first marriage to actor Doug Hutchison who was four years older than her father. Stodden, at the age of 16, met Hutchison through an acting workshop on the internet. Apparently, Hutchison wasn’t aware of the age difference of 34 years that he shared with Stodden when he began a courtship with her which lasted for nearly six months.
In 2011 the couple married in Las Vegas, Nevada. Stodden was 16 when she married Hutchison aged 50. Their wedding, of course, garnered a lot of attention and the duo was subjected to criticism for their rather uncomfortable relationship. However, their marriage began to see cracks soon and the couple announced their separation in 2013 but reconciled in 2014. In January 2012 it was reported that Stodden and Hutchison were living separately, and eventually filed for divorce in March 2018, which was finalized in January 2020.
Stodden announced her divorce from Hutchison on Instagram in March with a long post on Instagram, talking about their relationship of a decade nearly. “I’ve been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost 10-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. “ she wrote in the post.
Before her marriage to Hutchison, Stodden hosted her own cable TV show ‘Ocean Shores’. In 2010 she ventured into the music industry and released her singles ‘Car Candy’, ‘Crazy’, ‘Don’t Put It on Me’, ‘Hurting People’, and ‘We Are America’. Along with Hutchison, she appeared on ‘Couples Therapy’ in 2012. A year later she participated in ‘Celebrity Big Brother’ and got evicted two days before the finale receiving the least number of votes. Stodden has kept herself busy with appearances here and there. In 2014, she featured in 50 Cent’s ‘Don’t Worry Bout’. In August she appeared in an episode of ‘Hollywood Hillbillies’. In 2015, she released a solo sex tape through Vivid Entertainment and stated that all the profits from it would be donated to a charity.
In 2016, she featured in Lifetime series ‘The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition’ with her mother and in the same year made her film debut with ‘Love Addict’. Stodden was last seen on Dr Phil in 2017.
