Courtney Stodden Turns 21: Former Teen Bride Celebrates On Social Media

Courtney Stodden is officially 21. The reality star and former teen bride celebrated her birthday on August 29. Courtney celebrated by going to a nightclub with her husband for the very first time.

Courtney Stodden became famous at the age of 16 when she married then-51-year-old actor, Doug Hutchinson. Stodden and her husband celebrated her 21st birthday at the Warwick night club in Hollywood on Saturday, August 29. The blonde reality star and Hutchinson wore matching black ensembles and carried a single rose when they left the hot spot.

Courtney was photographed in a plunging black blazer that was belted around her waist. She also wore black leggings with black leather booties. Doug opted to wear a black blazer with a black T-shirt and black trousers.

The Celebrity Big Brother star also took her 21st birthday celebrations to social media. Stodden took to Twitter and Instagram to share a photo of herself celebrating in nothing but a pair of denim jeans and two bows that strategically covered her breasts. She included the tweet: “Happy birthday to me #birthdaygirl #21stbirthday” with balloon and heart emojis.

Happy birthday to me #birthdaygirl

A lot has changed for Courtney over the past five years. She has gone through a major makeup and style transformation, citing Marilyn Monroe as her idol. Courtney and Doug’s relationship hit a brief rough patch, where they made an appearance on VH1’s Couple Therapy. She also made a name for herself by becoming a reality star and the face of animal rights organization PETA. Courtney is also starring in the romantic comedy, Love Addict, alongside Elliot Haddaway and Alysha Ochse.

Not only did Courtney Stodden release a solo sex tape, but she also fired her mom, Krista Stodden, as her manager. Her mom recently revealed to Radar Online that she has regrets about allowing her teen daughter to marry the Green Mile actor.

“Courtney is turning 21 and this will be the first time in my life I have not been with my daughter on her birthday. Things are still very icy between us and I have not talked to her since she and I went our separate ways. I think that if a husband can see that there are problems between his wife and her mother I believe he should stay out of the situation. There are some really horrible things that he has done since she and I have not been speaking that will be very hard to ever forget about.”

Stodden responded to her mom’s response with this photo on Instagram, which shows her holding the book, The Little Big Book for Moms, from the parenting section of a bookstore. She coyly captioned the photo: “A little light reading on a Friday afternoon. #family #life #love.”
