“I think both of us saw the warning signs for quite some time,” Stodden, 22, told Us. “Technically we’ve been split for two-and-a-half to three months now. It’s really recent and the emotions are still really raw.”
Earlier this month, Stodden confirmed that she and her husband of six years had been separated for some time. (The glamour model was spotted getting cozy with a mystery man while out at a karaoke lounge in Hollywood on Thursday, February 9.) “Unfortunately, they’re true,” Stodden told the Daily Mail of rumors that she and Hutchison, 56, had called a time-out on their relationship. “It’s hard right now but we’re trying to individually find our happiness. It’s just really sad right now.”
On Thursday, Stodden explained to Us that part of the reason why it’s so tough to part ways with her actor husband is because they’re been through so much together.
“He’s been my rock for me through so many things that I’ve been through,” Stodden told Us. “It’s been interesting for sure.” Last summer, the couple confirmed to Us that Stodden had suffered a miscarriage while pregnant with what would have been their first child together.
“It is with a heavy heart to inform you that last week Courtney Stodden suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage,” her rep told Us in a statement on July 17. “Courtney and her husband, Doug, are at an emotional loss for words and are using this time to grieve with their close family and friends.”
Following the couple’s tragic loss, Stodden leaned on a “reborn” baby doll to help her cope with her heartbreak. The pair have also taken part in their share of reality shows since their 2011 nuptials, the pressures of which have caused a strain on their relationship. (Stodden and Hutchison both appeared on VH1’s Couples Therapy With Dr. Jenn in 2012, and Stodden has appeared on Big Brother’s Bit on the Side, Hollywood Hillbillies, True Hollywood Story: Reality Ex-Wives and The Mother/Daughter Experiment: Celebrity Edition, in addition to Celebrity Big Brother.)

Courtney Stodden says she's bisexual, is open to dating a woman after split
NEW YORK – Courtney Stodden is "very single" and she's not limiting her dating pool.
The reality star, who announced last week her split from husband, actor Doug Hutchison, told Fox News what she looks for in a potential suitor.
"I think I just want to have fun," Stodden said ahead of her appearance at NYC'S HeadQuarters Gentlemen's Club. "I like guys who are funny and you know, successful and girls too! You know, I mean, I'm bi so why not some girls too?"
Stodden and Hutchison married in 2011 when she was 16 and the "Green Mile" actor was 51. Three years and several reality shows later, the controversial couple split despite calling each other "soul mates." They renewed their vows in 2014.
"I'm doing okay," she said of their recent separation. "The best that I think [I] can possibly be doing right now."
But she's not wasting any more time being hung up on her ex. The former couple were married for 6 years.
"I think 2017 is going to be a much better year for me than 2016. 2016 was like really bad like it was awful all around."
While Stodden might be all about having fun these days, the aspiring pop star -- who supported Bernie Sanders and then Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton -- also weighed in on current events saying she is concerned over the state of the country.
"I feel like we need to move forward and try to have faith," she said. "I mean what can we do? [Trump] was elected. Hopefully he will do an okay job."
