Is The Teenage Bride Story A Hoax?
The world was shocked when 16-year-old Courtney Stodden, a model since the age of 12, married 51-year-old actor Doug Hutchinson. But a recent post on the Crushable has us wondering if Stodden isn’t really just a fake.
The entertainment website refers to an interview with Stodden, her Twitter feed and her appearance as evidence that Stodden is, in fact, a performance artist:
“We thought she was ridiculous when we first heard that she had married a 51-year-old man, and the more we see of her, the more ridiculous she gets. But I have a theory, and that theory is this: that Courtney Stodden is actually a 35-year-old performance artist who has created the character of an ultra-sexual teenager in order to comment on society’s views of sex. [I]t’s kind of brilliant in a weird sort of way. What better way to make society reexamine itself than by shoving something so ridiculous that is allegedly of its own creation right back in its face?”
Crushable isn’t the first site to question Stodden’s age. E! explored the possibility, also they quickly claimed to have uncovered her birth certificate, proving she really is 16 years old. Radar posted a copy of the marriage license, which lists Stodden’s birthday as August 29, 1994.
Yet, despite the existence of the documents, doubts still remain. Stodden’s over-the-top sexuality and bizarre behavior in interviews indicates something is not quite right with the “teen” or her relationship with Hutchinson. Hollywood Lifehad a body language expert examine an interview with Stodden and Hutchinson, and asserted that both showed signs of deception in the way they spoke and acted. Let’s just hope that, if this is a hoax, we get to the punchline soon.
Do you think Courtney Stodden is really 16?
