Courtney Stodden opens up about being groomed as a child bride

Courtney Stodden took to Instagram to announce she's officially divorced from Doug Hutchison, and opened up about being groomed as a child bride by the actor.

The couple had an on-again/off-again relationship for nearly a decade, beginning with a courtship when she was 16 and he was 50.

"I’ve been scared to even speak up about feeling groomed or being verbally abused during the almost 10 year marriage because I was a child and he was 50 when we married..."

Stodden continues, "I’ve felt completely trapped, manipulated and at times abandoned by adults / growing up in such an environment — it became a lonely and dark place. And to Doug... I wish you well. But please don’t ever do this to another minor again. It’s not right... even if the parent signs off. Wait a respectable amount of time before marrying. Children aren’t on your level. I’ll always love you regardless. Be better. As shall I."

Her full post is on her instagram.
