It’s been just over a year since Courtney Stodden announced she was officially done with her creepy husband Doug Hutchison. But before she starts dating another man who remembers tuning into the pilot episode of Cheers and the taste of New Coke, she’s got to get divorced first. That is, if either of them can even afford it.
TMZ says that 23-year-old Courtney filed for divorce from 57-year-old Doug after seven years of marriage yesterday. Courtney listed “irreconcilable differences” as the reason, and she’s not asking for spousal support. Courtney signed a prenup when she married Doug back in 2011, although that could get tricky. Doug filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy back in October, and the most bankable asset he listed was a 2001 Jeep Wrangler.
According to TMZ and The Blast, Courtney is broke too. Courtney claims she only makes $2,500 per month, but that her expenses are $4,700. One such expense is $1,000 a month on clothing. If I had to guess the breakdown of that, I’d say she reserves a couple bucks for a fresh pair of clickity-clack heels, and spends the rest on whatever NASA-grade technology is needed to keep her titties in a permanent state of suspended animation.
Courtney’s assets aren’t great, but they’re not nearly as grim as Doug’s. Courtney says she’s got $2,700 in checking accounts, and $10,000 in household furniture, furnishings and appliances. Courtney’s financial situation has changed drastically over the past 12 months, and she has no major production deals in the works.
Despite the fact that we’re probably all picturing Courtney on a public library computer, listing her fridge and stove on Craigslist for $500 or best offer, Courtney tells People that she’s excited to start this next chapter of her life.
“This is a new chapter in my life. New beginnings and a fresh start. I’m pouring my heart into my music – and using that as a conduit to tell my story and share who I really am deep down. I’ve been through so much while being in the entertainment world and I’ve created an image that is almost bigger than life. I’m getting back to that girl underneath the persona and eager for people to get to know the real me through my songs.”
It’s a good thing Courtney’s schedule isn’t filled up with work. Because it’s going to take a lot of time to get back to the girl underneath all the fake tanner and hair extensions. No really, girl, put up a sign notifying people you’ll be unavailable for the next two weeks as you power wash through the foundation and concealer.
