Reality Star Courtney Stodden Talks About Her Own Sexual Assault
Former reality star Courtney Stodden spoke about her sexual assault, which happened while she was separated (but still married) to Doug Hutchison. She also hinted that she might take legal action.
“When the first incident happened, I, you know, didn’t tell [Doug]. It was actually during the first time we separated. Um, you know, it actually happened to me two times when we were separated,” she shared. “I was only 19, you know, when my first experience happened. And, um, I didn’t really think it was wrong, which is the crazy part. I felt like, OK, well, ‘That’s what, that’s how sex is.’ You know, I only had sex with one man before that … Doug. So gentle, not to get explicit. But, you know, I was like, OK, maybe that’s just rough was of, you know, going on a date … I really didn’t realize it was sexual abuse until I started hearing these women talking.”
Recently, the couple has filed for divorce.
