(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.
