Trouble in Paradise for 17-Year-Old Courtney Stodden and Husband

JB Lacroix/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- This most likely won’t come as a shock, but there is reportedly trouble in paradise for 17-year-old Courtney Stodden and her 52-year-old husband, Doug Hutchison.

Stodden, the aspiring singer who married Lost actor Hutchison when she was 16, has signed on to join VH1′s Couples Therapy, TMZ reported.

The couple said they have “obvious problems in their relationship because of their age difference and the notoriety they’ve gotten because of their relationship,” a source close to the show told TMZ.

Couples Therapy is set to premiere in September. Filming began a few days ago, according to TMZ.

“FYI Stoddenista’s: Will be m.i.a for about 3 weeks -- packing up & heading out to shoot a reality show! Love you all xxx God Bless, Courtney,” Stodden tweeted Monday.

Past couples on the reality show include Vienna Girardi, winner of the season 14 of The Bachelor, and boyfriend Kasey Kahl, as well as wrestler Hulk Hogan’s ex-wife Linda, 52, and her boyfriend, 29-year-old Charlie Hill.

'Lost' Actor, 51, Weds 16-Year-Old

Brand X Pictures/Thinkstock(LAS VEGAS) -- May-December romances aren't unusual. But when the bride can't yet vote and the groom is eligible to join AARP? That's extreme, even for Hollywood.

Green Mile and Lost actor Doug Hutchison, 51, revealed on Monday that he wed aspiring country singer Courtney Alexis Stodden, 16, in May.

"We're aware that our vast age difference is extremely controversial," the couple told E! News in a statement released by their spokesperson. "But we're very much in love and want to get the message out there that true love can be ageless."

Stodden's mother gave parental consent so the two could wed in Las Vegas.

"We are totally supportive of this marriage," Krista Stodden told "Doug is a wonderful man and we love him." She added, "Courtney was a virgin when she married Doug. She is a good Christian girl."

So, how did the two get involved? The fact that Stodden is signed to Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, might have something to do with it. A former beauty pageant queen (she competed for the title of Miss Teen Washington USA last year), Hutchinson is trying to make it as a country music crooner.

Celebuzz compiled a variety of her YouTube videos, including one where she talks for nearly seven minutes about overcoming bullying and explains that she wrote the song "Don't Put It On Me" (the video for which features a pink-haired dog) to support victims of bullying.

Character actor Hutchison is probably best known for playing problematic prison guard Percy Wetmore in The Green Mile. He also played DHARMA Initiative leader Horace Goodspeed in the TV drama Lost and has appeared in Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Guiding Light, The X-Files, and 24.
