Courtney Stodden identifies as a non-binary person who received tabloid notoriety on marrying actor Doug Hutchinson in 2011. Stodden was 16 then, and Hutchinson was 50, leaving them bullied all over the media. Many tabloids gave them a nickname of the ‘teen bride’ in the media circus, including Anderson Cooper, who called them a stripper on CNN, while Dr. Drew examined their breasts in front of a live studio audience. Although the couple got a divorce in 2020, but the release of ‘Framing Britney Spears’ had Stodden reevaluate their treatment at the hands of the media trolls. Recently, Chrissy Teigen has come under fire for cyberbullying after her horrifying tweets about Stodden resurfaced. However, Stodden is ready to meet up with the star, as they believe in sincere apologies and wants to move on with their life and career, according to TMZ.
In a recent interview, Stodden opened up about the harassment she faced at the hands of some of the high-profile critics, especially singling out Chrissy Teigen. The former American model and wife of John Legend hurled abusive tweets Stodden’s way, telling them to commit suicide a decade ago. In 2011, Teigen took to her Twitter and told then-16-year-old Stodden to ‘go to sleep forever.’ However, Stodden revealed that this was only part of the picture as Teigen would also ‘privately DM me and tell me to kill myself.’ “She wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but also things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die,’” Stodden alleged.
