Courtney Stodden: Who Is the 16-Year-Old Country Bride?

In news that will surely set off a whole lot of red flags and pique the interest of many, Green Mile actor Doug Hutchison tied the knot with singer Courtney Stodden this week. Not sure why that's newsworthy or so interesting? Well, Hutchison is 51 years old, and Stodden is ... wait for it ... 16. 

So, legalities aside, who is this supposedly-16-year-old gal and what has she done so far? Allow Celebuzz to introduce you to Miss Stodden -- no, wait, Mrs. Hutchison.

Who Is This Courtney Stodden? She's an aspiring pop-country crooner who until now has not been a household name for many. Most of her music is limited to Myspace and YouTube, where you can find such offerings as "Car Candy" and "Don't Put It On Me," which features Stodden  in the back of a boat in an all-pink outfit ... complete with a pink-haired dog as well. You should really watch this: 


So How Does She Know Hutchison? Well, strangely (or not so strange, actually) she's signed to his production company Dark Water. Does the name sound creepy? Don't worry, they're all about the deep fulfillment of their talent's biggest desires. "From our ocean of unrest swim the dreams of filmmakers, actors, authors, illustrators, photographers, magicians, musicians and inventors. With artistic vision, our goal is to manifest dreams," the website reads. Stodden's in good hands!

Is She Really 16? According to Stodden, yes. Looks aside, we've come across this little modeling site that has her at 17, with no date to suggest when that was posted. Other tidbits from the site? She's rocking a 36-23-34 figure (?!) and is 5'3" while tipping (or not tipping) the scales at 96 pounds.

What Does She Like? Well, it's hard to say as we don't know much about her or know her personally, but strictly going by her YouTube videos, it's safe to say she enjoys: Colored dogs, rented boats, writhing about, sitting on the back seats of convertibles and wearing really big sunglasses.

What Does She Not Like? Tough call, really, but she definitely doesn't like bullies. In a YouTube video, she explains for nearly 7 minutes how she has overcome bullying, and wrote a song (the pink-haired dog video above) as a rally cry for the victims of bullying. "My goal is to help others not be affected by bullies, and even possibly help save one life. I know there are people right there who are watching this and are either a victim or a bully. I am here to help the victim. You are not alone," she says. Please, watch:

So... How'd She Get Married at 16? Well, apparently if you have parental consent, a 16-year-old can marry legally in Clark County, Nevada. Cue the supportive quote from mom via Radar: "We are totally supportive of this marriage ... Doug is a wonderful man and we love him." Signed, sealed, delivered.

OK, so she works for Hutchison ... why do/should I know him? He's been in a handful of movies and TV shows you've likely seen. He played Percy in The Green Mile, and more recently he led the DHARMA Initiative on the hit ABC show Lost. Most currently, he married a 16-year-old singer. And for no reason at all, here's a techno mix of Hutchison on Lost.

    I had a chest like that when I was 16.. .. I was molested by two older borther's. So yes you can have a set like that at that age. What you wanna bet she was molested if those are truly real.

  • justaguy

    I would blank her brains out

  • MegaLynn

    This pic makes it obvious she has had work done.

  • MegaLynn

    There's no way those boobs are real. I will dispute that. Also as far as plastic surgeons who do surgery on 16 year olds like this....that makes me sick. I know they are out there because unfortunately I know a girl who had a boob job at 16 and well let's just say she is not a classy lady at all still to this day. Sad sad sad...

  • miss.rouso

    no, they're all padding..

  • miss.rouso

    cute dress.

  • janet

    is she slow or handicapped? The girl can barely speak. Hot???? will (blank) anything.


    Ohhh God, ghost! :DDD

    I bet that is what she calls her dad..buahahaha

    dude is like...I wanna hot dat ass...mmmm....mmmm...good..

    Daddy bought this for me on Christmas..thanks daddy...buahahahaha..freak

    Dave brother bought this for me...he loves it when i model it...especially after midnight....

  • Dave

    Daddy always liked it when I wore his favorite lingerie..teehee....

  • Dave

    her brother and daddy take good photos,....

  • Dave

    She is training to lift up her "old" man junk....buahahahaha


    Ok so she is pretty but the way she handles herself in public is disgusting.

  • E

    This looks like it was taken before she finished getting all of the surgery done on her face.

  • MMM88

    I'm so not ok with this. People need to stop promoting this behavior from this young girl. Stop showing it & stop glamourizing it!

  • MMM88

    If my 16 year old ever thinks acting this way is ok I will whoop her butt and put her in the corner like a lil kid, knock her down a knotch. Bring her back to reality. This is unacceptable behavior for a 16 year old.

  • MMM88

    She needs to learn how to do her make-up also. She's really making herself a lot less attractive. But I am saddened by this girl and this situation!

  • Sheri Anne

    No way she is 16..More like in the late 20's or early 30's.No plastic surgeon would do that much work on a 16 year old..If one did they should be arrested. I think it is her way to be noticed saying she is 16. I am sorry but dressing the way she does it is not pretty and it screams hore..If she covered up some and dressed like a LADY she would get some positive attention.. Anyone who has to flaunt there bodies like that has severe self-esteem issues. I think this chic is craving attention..Any and from anyone.

    This girl is not 16 years old..She looks like maybe 28-35 years old. She is not all that, most of her loooks like plastic surgery.

    Oh from the mouths of pedophiles!

  • TNT

    I would like to know what planet you're on so I can stay the hell away from it. Thought I would also share this since you don't seem to understand what a pedophile is. Legally, 16 is still a child. Not to mention any kind of parent would NEVER allow their 16 year old daughter to go near a 50 year old man in a romantic/sexual way. If you think it's okay to be sexually involved with a 16 year old YOU SIR HAVE ISSUES. pe·do·phile (US) or Brit pae·do·phile /ˈpɛdəˌfajəl, Brit ˈpi:dəˌfajəl/ noun plural pe·do·philes [count] : a person who has a sexual interest in children

    She must be on something she smokes or does drugs or something because I have never seen a 17 year old look so old. She says she and her parents are Christians but I don't know of any Christian family that would let their daughter marry at 16 and dress so trashy like she does. There is clearly something wrong with her parents,Doug and her. I seriously doubt she was a virgin when she married him dressing and looking like that what is wrong with this country that some states make it legal for children to marry with parents consent?? Something wrong with this country for allowing that and something wrong with her parents. I am assuming that her parents are looking for fame as well through their daughter to get it. This marriage wont work out once she becomes famous she will move on to next sucker and leave Dougs well dry when she takes his money in divorce.

    she was my childhood friend. i was so surprised to see this. she went from being so tiny and innocent and throwing 70s-themed slumber parties and going to church the next day to this?!!?!?! my mom still knows her mom personally! and i'm a junior in HIGH SCHOOL. wow. this is terrible.

  • freshup16

    you're stupid,, she is the one who puts the almost naked pictures of herself only for the world to see!! and she probably could care less about pedofiles.. she's obiously attracted to them.. hello Married to one!!!

  • freshup16

    ugly tramp

  • freshup16

    lol!!! Diddo

  • Lisa

    What could they possibly have in common......shame on her parents for letting an old man rob this girl of her youth, she looks like a cheap 40 year old!

  • Crystal

    Clearly, people can't seem to figure out that back in the day, people lived up to say 60 years old, when the vast majority are living up to their 90's. What was once 12 is now, I'd say, about 21. And even if she were to have a real body, she clearly is not 'natural'. She could have taken sex hormones to make her body mature far quicker, and even if she were to be a virgin, she would have been fondled by men which were to make her hormones reproduce even quicker as well as have a slutty mind. And she is NOT 90 lbs with those measurements. They are as much of a lie as her. If she were a good Christian girl, she wouldn't be posing like that in photos and using sex to sell, AND getting married in Las Vegas. Good lord. Please, it sickens me how some men can't seem to mature in their mind and think that they're their age. Mid-life crisis my ass. However, since the majority of men just want sex (I won't lie, women do too) they don't think clearly and only think in the now.

  • courtneybaaaby

    wtf celebuzz, she may look old but why are you putting pictures like this of a 16 year old girl, she may acted slutty but you dont need to put her discusting and revealing photos on here for pedofile old man to look at, she already has one for that.

  • diggerdog

    with so much surgery this girl looks almost 30

  • diggerdog

    wtf, this girl is 16 and is marrying a guy thats 51, thats fucking discusting!

  • wooshtastic

    I'm gonna just be honest here.. First; you guys are all idiots. Just cause she's gorgeous, doesn't mean he's a fake slut or anything? Her saying her breasts are real, is quite frankly, bullshit. & Same with the lips.. They've definitely been surgically enhanced.. But that doesn't make her a bad person or anything, so what the 'eff is your problem? I don't think her appearance would be particularly good as a role model for young children, but I think her attitude is. She is TOTALLY against bullying, and you pathetic people keep doing just that? If you think she's such a bad person, that means her morals are bad, too, yeah? So being a virgin, Christian young woman who is against bullying is like the worst thing in the world? Any decent parent would want the same things for their own children; that is not to say that her mother is a good one in all views though. Because, quite frankly, I don't think her mother is AWFUL, but she's certainly on that line. I wouldn't let my 16 year old (or 17, whichever her age is..) get plastic surgery, but that's just me. Her singing? It's quite horrible.. But that doesn't mean that she should have to put up with this bullying and harassment.. She is a very good looking girl, that does look a bit plastic.. & I realise that a lot of these women/girls will be jealous of that. I'm a 14 year old girl, 5'7, 38D cup breasts, and I hear that I have breast implants a lot, and I do get called fake, quite a bit. Just because someone is developed for their age, does not mean that they are a fake person.. Their appearance may look it.. but their personality is real. As for her marriage, Love is love. She clearly already has the fame.. I've never even heard of the bloke she's married.. So I don't think she's a gold-digger. You people just need to stfu and get over it. It's her life. Thanks :)

    Well, then, Alexis, we need to stop giving our kids condoms and allowing them to make any sexual decisions at all, if they are imcompetent to do so until they are 22-23 years-old! And, we should stop telling them that they can make decisions about their sexual preferences, going to college, drinking, joining the military, etc., etc. Yes, let's just keep them couch surfing until they are 30! Wow! is America literally kidding itself, or what?

    Can you say, "LYING" about your age. there is no way she is 16. IF she is 16, she has be ridden hard and put away wet.

  • Alexis

    HER BRAIN WAS FULLY DEVELOPED! you should be able to see the difference between 16 and 25 it is HUGE! wow people are gross.

  • Alexis

    In the 30's and 40's cognitive psychology was not anywhere near what it is now. In 50 years more science has happened. Have you been living under a rock? She is not old enough to make decisions like this!

  • Alexis

    Ones brain is not fully developed until age 22 or 23. The part that is not yet developed is the frontal lobe which is responsible for decision making processes. If I were you I would get educated about a. psychology and b. logical fallacies. Just because other people have done something in the past does not make it logical or right. It is really disturbing that you agree with this and I would hope that you do not have a daughter to spread this thinking to.

  • Menisha Bonelli

    Some of the time I say "dont blame the parents", because ultimately a parent can only do so much, which is true. But in this case I BLAME HER PARENTS 150%!! 1. They allow her to parade around like a little sex kitten! 2.They allowed their 16 year old child to date a 51 year old man. 3.They gave CONSENT for their 16 year old child to MARRY a 51 year old man!

  • Jessica Moe
    Jessica Moe

    Ok, she's still SIXTEEN! She may have married an adult but she is NOT AN ADULT. These images of her are so inappropriate! It's not just the images, though, it's the fact that she is clearly so not capable of making sound decisions she can't even choose an appropriate facial expression 99% of the time, and at least she has the advantage of POSSIBLY maturing out of whatever "phase" this is....except that somehow it's ok to post this smut around the internet?? I'm just really flabbergasted.

  • jane

    she kinda looks like chrystal harris here..

  • HJ

    So… How’d She Get Married at 16? I guess the word COUNTRY in the article's title says it all.

  • jess

    she definitely looks way older than 16-would say 28-36. I think this is all some kind of hoax, especially on her/her parents behalf. They showed part of her "birth certificate" on ABC news and it looked like a printed receipt from a restaurant, not an official state document. that girl is a train wreck and this whole thing has got to be made up. and if you watch the abc news thing, she keeps staring at him and licking her lips in the creepiest way ever. gross

  • anonymous

    what the hell is up with the same trashy expression on her face in every pic?!

  • Joy

    what a shame....if she can get her boobs blown up, she should be able to get her lips done too instead of having to purposely poke 'em out to get that pouty look!.....and whats up with all those rediculous "poses"?.....and only 16?......paaaaalleeeeeeezzzzz!...she has totally destroyed what quite possibly be an attractive young lady......

  • Mariam

    The smallminded world-view illustrated by some of the comments here disturbs me more than this marriage.

    "May-December" is a North American idiom that refers to "spring/winter of their lives" relationships. Nothing to do with the length of time a couple has been dating LOL!

    I applaud his mother and agent for walking away from him and not speaking to him. His true colors will now show, I feel sorry for this CHILD and the monster she unknowingly married! Let's hope her parents stay by her side through all of this. She is going to need them.

    Michael, I agree with your balanced view. I'm 18. my husband is 43. Our relationship is more happy and functional than most I know. I grew up very quickly due to a bad home life, and I was ready for stability and marriage. This young woman is a product of moral decline in society. The older man's intentions don't seem pure considering her overly sexified looks. I think he saw a vulnerable, hot, sex "thing".I pity her. These are my first impressions/judgements. She may be very mature like I was at sixteen (if that's her actual age) and may have reasons for her manner of dress. No one knows. We don't know them. People judge my husband's love for me. It's a horrible feeling to be looked down upon. I don't know if ageism is really comparable to racism and sexism, all I know is, is that it hurts. I just want to be happy with my husband, no one should attack us for that. Much in the same way no one should attack them, because we are all judging and criticising, NO ONE KNOWS THEM. People are different at different ages. AGE IS A MENTAL STATE, NOT A NUMBER. thanks ya'll.

  • Stanley

    @Phil … It was because of poverty that people married off their kids at a young age to much older men; it wasn’t young men marring older women. My great grandma when she was 14 or 15 married a 40 year old. Her family was very poor and he had money. The view back then was that he could provide for her. Women didn’t have as many opportunities and it was a hard times. It was nothing like today.

  • marrying someone 10 years younger
    marrying someone 10 years younger

    If you are old enough to die for your country and you are old enough to vote,you are old enough to marry whomever you want. There are many 30-40 year olds who are not emotionally mature enough to be married. I have met many of these 30-40 year olds who can be taken advantage of as easily as any teen. Who are you to say that a late teenager is not mature enough? (NOTE)Reading some of these "mature" comments here ,I'd say a whole lot of these folks are unfit for marriage.

  • Billy

    Hey, I am 46 years old and do not look my age either. If given the opportunity, I would SO marry her, whether she were 16 years old or 56 years old.

  • Betty

    16.....seriously??!! waay beyond her years and that's not a good thing.

  • Katrina

    I think the only sick thing is the fact that she is taking advantage of him rather than him taking advantage of her. He has money and a company that could possibly make her a star, 'cause lets face it, she is untalented. So she needs him. Secondly, she doesn't look 16 at all, I think she is a 48 year old who's had a lot of work done, including her breasts and most likely a face lift. Her eyes look old and she seems to wear a lot of make up to cover up wrinkles. If she would post a picture of herself without 300 lbs of makeup on, perhaps then I could believe her age. So her obvious lying about her age, something used to spark this much attention to their situation, is another sick thing. She is a gold digger, looking for the easy way in life. Perhaps she is in her mid,twenties, doesn't go to school, has no real job or potential in life so her mother and her decided to con a rich man into this. Perhaps not though, and she is a hideous 16 year old untalented girl--what is she going to look like when she IS 48 yrs old??? If she keeps up this way of life, she'll probably look as old as him, or perhaps even older. Lets see this love, because so far, all I see is lying and gold-digging.

  • CJ

    Omg lol the first time I saw Horace I said bet his character turns out to be a pedo. Nope turns out he turned out to be a pedo.

  • Ew.

    As a 16 year-old myself, I find this marriage disgusting. It is nothing like homosexuality or mixed race marriages by any standard. People my age do not have the mental maturity to make these sort of decisions when we don't even know what to wear in the morning much less marry somebody at any age. It's like me marrying my father's best friend! Michael, you obviously have no children of your own because would you want your teenage daughter to marry one of your co-workers?

  • Concerned

    It is just not the laws that can restrict the youth. Teens can experience life if their parents give them the chance to. Many parents do not let their teenages do anything while under their control while some let their teenagers do way too much. I am all for letting teenagers have chances at life experiences by having part-time jobs and making it so that if there is something they truly desire they have to pay for it themselves from what they earn. It teaches them to work for what they want and that life is not just handed to them on a silver platter. There has to be a good balance in what teens are allowed to do and what they are not allowed to do. It will allow them to grow and experience life while still knowing that if they fail they have something to fall back on. But of course, not every teen will get to experience this, it's just what is ideal. But an important part of life is an education. To do anything well in life those things must be practiced, aka repetition. No one can learn how to tie their shoes in one go. They have to constantly repeat the practice over and over until they master it. No one learns how to add, subtract, multiple or divide in one sitting. They must continuously practice these skills. Repetition is a key part of learning and mastering skills. We will always have the standardized tests but those are only once a year. The tests given in the classroom do need to become more varied not just be paper-and-pencil tests. Future educators are being taught to test in new ways and not to always use the old method. But there are still many older teachers in the system that do not want to change and would not be considered highly qualified to teach but there is currently no way to dispose of them easily and readily because of the current tenure system. An amazing teacher can get his/her students to think outside the box, ask thought-provoking questions, and to go off and learn more on their own. These teachers ask the harder questions that engage the students' higher thinking skills and thusly improve upon their critical thinking. We need more of these teachers. There are so many subjects that can provoke critical thinking if we can get the right teachers in the classroom. Yes, with the current economy it is difficult to get a job with a college degree, but even more so difficult for those without an education to get a job that will sustain themselves and their family without welfare. And welfare is a whole other issue with this society that is far from being fixed and used properly. Way too many people abuse it. But that is not the point I am trying to make right now. What is important is that no matter what time period you look at, those who are educated are better off. They have access to higher paying jobs, even if they may be more difficult to come by. For Courtney, if she makes it as a singer, good for her, she does not need an education to make money. However, the chances of that happening for most people is very slim; they just dont have the talent, opportunities or luck to be placed in such a situation as to become rich and famous. Nowadays many high schools have opportunities for the students to experience and learn real life skills. My high school for instance allowed students their senior year (maybe even their junior year) take only half a days worth of classes (so 3-4 classes where there were typically 7-8 in a day) and then the other half of the day they can work at a job. For many of these students they would go work at a school, a hospital, etc. They get a chance to work at something they might enjoy doing later in life. My high school also offered courses that offered skills for future jobs. Like a mechanics class, a law enforcement class, and agriculture classes. The students also get to pick their classes that they want. Yes, there are some required courses but by the time they reach their junior and senior years they only have about 3 required courses each year and the rest are electives. They can pick the classes they want to take to help them prepare for whatever future they decide on. The schools are trying to give our students/youth the life experiences and choices to succeed for themselves. Teenagers should be allowed to make romantic decisions. What I was commenting on earlier is that they are not completly mature, which is based on scientific research and data. Most teenage relationships fail or do not last very long. There are very few exceptions of which a friend of mine is one of those exceptions. Teenagers still have a lot of growing to do and they are very different people by the time they hit their 20's from when they were 16. This is because of how they now view the world and their ability to make better life choices. It is best for them to make these romantic decisions with other teenagers. They can grow up together instead of being forced to grow up in order to act mature enough for an older partner. I would say there are way more stupid 16 year olds than smart 16 year olds. Go into a high school and observe the classrooms, the hallways, the cafeteria, and wherever the students congregate. The smart 16 year old knows his/her responsibilites and what would be considered wrong to do (even for an adult to do). The stupid 16 year old would not even care and do as he/she pleases. You will see that there are quite a few more students who do care about their education/grades or what they are doing with their lives at that moment than there are who do. For most its about the next big party. Cyber bullying is bad as is bullying in general. I am glad that Courtney stands up against such things but how she portrays herself in her videos is not how a good role model to younger girls should portray herself. Because if she does make it big, she will become a role model for the younger girls. They will want to be like her and dress like her. I'd rather not have my 11 year old niece dressing in a way that most people do consider "slutty."

  • mika

    she looks old to me. she can't be 16. if she is imagine what she's going to look like when she turns 20 or even about an old hag.

  • Cmeyer

    Here's what I think. She's signed to his company right? So his career is basically dead. This was a publicity stunt to get her music out there. I wonder how long they actually had been dating. The article says something about May-Dec I bet it was longer than that. Sick pervert! I give them 6 months tops.

  • Amelia

    I don't understand, this chick looks more like 40 and washed up. Has fake boobs and looks anorexic in some pics. How is she only 16?? Could this be a hoax?

  • Ange

    With quality of music nowadays... .who knows she could go far. not that many artists have actual talent these days which is very sad

  • pepa

    she's like a weird combination of ke$ha and xtina aguilera!

  • Michael

    Several of you pointed out how there's "extended adolescence" these days. Yes, but that's a problem that needs to be corrected. It's not a good situation when the economy is so bad that people have to continue living with their parents into their 20s or 30s and can't get high-paying jobs even when they've graduated from college. It's also rather weird to expect every person to go to college when that costs so much. In the 1950s and 1960s, the U.S. had a healthy manufacturing base and jobs in many fields were plentiful even for just high school graduates. It's also negative when teens have been coddled all their lives without having the chance to experience life because of all the laws restricting them. Teens are capable of more than you think. Not when you lock them in schools and steal all their time with too much test-taking and repetitive homework and not enough critical thinking and job apprenticeship. Nobody is saying that women should be subservient to men and are merely a commodity. But, for some reason, you think 16 year olds should be subservient to 18+ year olds and not even be able to make romantic choices. Some 16 year olds are stupid and some aren't. Some relationships last and some don't. I don't accept your generalizations. Nor do I think the cyber-bullying and defamation against Courtney and her husband reflect well on the user base here. Ironically, Courtney spoke out against cyber-bullying on a video above. Jonathan's use of the word "hyper-slutty" is the same kind of attack that was used against some high school girls who were bullied by their peers, some of whom committed suicide as a result.

  • really

    Excuse me, engaged at 23 and then married at 26 or so. By that time she was a fully matured adult.

  • really

    Her situation is not even close to the same. If your dates are correct then she didn't start a relationship with him until she was 19 yrs of age and wasn't married until she was 23. Nice try jackass.

  • really

    Wow, really? You have been with your sons wife for 5 years now and you feel that is OK? The only thing worse than this sick old man is you sir. Obviously your moral compass has been broke for some time. You are a horrible human being.

  • annaphallactic

    One in three adults (between ages 20 and 30) haven't moved out of their parents' homes yet. What makes you think that any teenager has the maturity level to marry when our society is clearly shifting towards an even more extended adolescence?

  • Effy

    As a 16 year old, I PROMISE that's she's not 16. That's not possible. She looks at least 21. No 16 year old looks like that. Not even the really slutty playboy bunny type. If she IS 16, then she needs to get her priorities straight.

  • Lala

    So if you fall for a 13 year old and she "loves" you back, no boundaries, right? It is not agism to point out an inappropriate relationship, which this is. This guy could conceivably be her grandfather-yuck!

  • Lala

    Sorry, but 50 years ago was 1961 and marrying underage girls was only acceptable to hillbillies. 150 years ago men and women did not live as long, there were no child welfare or labor laws. Young girls were chattel,many married off to save money for the family. Do you suggest we go back to that time? If you don't think this whole thing is creepy-you need a therapist.

  • Kimberly

    She honestly looks like she's about 35 years old.

  • embarrassed...

    This girl went to my high school and for years she's been trying to say were all jealous of her. Shes a disgrace to my town (ocean shores) and yes she is 16. Clearly you can see why we are all "jealous" of her I mean she's "definitely" not fake.

  • Stan

    This chick's singing makes Rebecca Black seem like Streisand in comparison. Also, if she's 16 then she's been doing meth since she was 11...there's no other way she could look like she's going on 40.

    It's a far cry from country music. Actually, you can't even consider it country music and it would be a shame to consider it so. Plus, I think she should keep her day job as being a new wife, rather than aspire to sing because she sucks at it and it is all auto-tuned.

    She isnt 5'3" @ 96lbs either, not with measurments of 36, 24, 34. unless she has absolutly no arms and legs. my wife is 5'2 1/2" @90 lbs and a size 1 would fall right off of her. A woman that weight would be at the most a skinny size zero, and very few curves.

  • tarl

    quite enlightening...there are MANY couples like this. you go to do that math on some of them, case in point Celine Dion... Dion first met her husband and manager, Rene Angelil in 1980, when she was 12 and he was 38, after she and her mother sent him a demo tape of a song they had written. They began a relationship in 1987, and became engaged in 1991. They married on December 17, 1994, at the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal, Quebec. On January 5, 2000, Dion and Angelil renewed their wedding vows in Las Vegas.

I especially loved the Breck Girl hair flipping and wind machine action. What an embarrasment. All silicone, hair spray and fake voice manipulation.

  • Ashley

    Ummmm hi? Did you read ANY of the comments, or catch the snarky tone of the entire article? No one is saying this is okay (well, except for the creepers).

  • Ashley

    Have you ever BEEN 16? Or have you just not matured at that point? The majority of 16 year olds are idiots (I was at that age! Luckily, I had parents who kept me in check that I respected enough to listen to. I didn't do too much damage, but still - I thought I was SO grown up. I was just a kid). It was more acceptable decades ago to get married young because "kids" didn't stay kids for that long. It wouldn't be unusual for teenagers to be going out and getting their own jobs and supporting themselves back then. It isn't that way anymore. Maybe in 1930, 16 year-olds were working and supporting a family and taking care of themselves. But it's 2011, and at 16, kids are just kids. Financially tied to their parents. Reckless with their emotions. They don't have to be grow-ups at 16 anymore. You can't watch that video of her and tell me you think she's mature enough to make a marriage work! Marriage is supposed to be a partnership; this is clearly anything but. Did her father include two goats and a fatted calf as part of her dowry?

    First, I agree - she's not 16. She looks like she's in her late 20's unless she's a very heavy smoker. She looks "used and abused" as someone else put it. Second, hello? Publicity stunt? She's signed to his production company - what better way to drum up interest in her than this? I don't buy that they got married "for love" and that her parents just went along with it because they like the guy. I think they went along with it because they know it's a sham and is only to try and get their daughter's career going. Third, I love how she's trying to be what she perceives as "sexy" in her video (which, I daresay, is worse than Friday by Rebecca Black). She looks like an old, washed up porn star who just didn't know when to quit and is now passé.

  • Blue

    Because of lifestyles currently prevalent in the west, girls are maturing physically at younger and younger ages. They are getting periods and breasts before they are 10. While they may get the curves of an adult woman, they do not have the mental maturity to handle a marriage or a relationship of any sort, and certainly not sex or motherhood. Just because you are attracted to girls far under the age of 18 does not make it OK simply because they have breasts.

  • Alicia73

    The kindest thing he can do for her would be to shave her head. Apparently her hair is too heavy for her neck and interfearing with her eye sight - hence all of the head tossing, turning and running her fingers through it. Poor bobble head, good luck on staying upright, your old bittle boned husband won't be much support.

  • tigertaint

    the virgin mary was like 12. that was the normal age. now with the hormones in our food and the way our society extends adolescence, the gap between physical development and mental maturity is ginormous.

  • Pinkie

    I think it's really sad that you use the struggle of gays and mixed race couples to justify this. That is exactly the reasons why republicans and conservatives withhold the rights from so many same sex couples, afraid that this will open the floodgates to allow for other kinds of relationships to be fought for. But no, there is no kind of situation where a child marrying a much older man is ok. It doesn't matter how mature you may perceive her as being, she's still being taken advantage of by a man who should know better. Men did it in the past because they lived in a society where women were a commodity. Women were virtually useless unless they were married away. Thank GOD we don't live in those times anymore, this is intolerable.

  • provvis

    Michael, you are right.

  • weiner

    no talent for singing. surgery for her boobs. she hasn't been a virgin for a long time.

  • Concerned

    The only big issue I have with your statement is this: "a completely mature 16 or 17 year old." I am sorry to say this but at 16-17 years of age, a teenager is in no way mature. I will admit that there are some teenagers that are quite mature at this age but when still compare to someone a few years older they are still lacking. The brain at this age is no where near fully developed, of which the brain is not considered fully developed until the mid-twenties. Teenagers make stupid choices and irrational decisions because their brains are not yet wired to be able to completely analyze a situation. And Luis is correct as to why young women were married off to older men. Parents wanted their daughters cared for. Another reason young girls were married off were in hopes to secure a better position in society for the family. But this began to change as more job oppotunities began to open, women gained rights, and realizations about such things being consider "right" were formed. There are reasons laws against older individuals being in relationships with younger individuals (aka, under the age of 18). These young people do not have the brain power to fully understand a complex relationship or possibly be aware of the fact that they could be taken advantaged of. At the legal age of 18, we consider our youth to be mature enough to make some decisions on their own, but it is clear that they are incapable of making the best decisions all the time at this age. It is clear enough when going through college and seeing what stupid and idiotic choices these incoming freshmen make year after year. I find it wrong from a young person, especially under the age of 25 (I will say that I might say just under 23 or so), to date someone vastly older than themselves. By the time they reach full maturity, they can make more fully formed decisions and know the repercussions of such decisions before going head first into a relationship. And because of this age and ability to make better decisions I say go right ahead and date whoever you please. But understand this, the success rate of such relationships are very low because of the age difference. Two people with vast differences in age grew up in different generations, have different values, and view the world differently. Such ideals can clash greatly. Of all the people I have known who have dated/married older people (and by at least a decade older), they have all failed.

  • Camaroman

  • Luis YShannon Ramirez
    Luis YShannon Ramirez

    ppl...ppl...ppl...this is an easy argument to make! Michael, the reason older men married younger girls in the past (and I'm surprised nobody sited the Bible as example of this) is because in the past, men were the only ones who could make a decent living. Men were the only ones who had the better paying jobs and the college degrees. a father of a girl, you wanted (AND actually needed) for your daughter to marry an older man who was already established in the work force. Nowadays, marrying your young daughter is actually clipping her wings and taking away any possible oppurtunity of her being independent and standing on her own. However, this bimbo looks like a future porn star so why not sell her while her assests are worth Shoot, Britney, Lohan, and Miley's parents did it.

  • Nikki

    This isn't about race so why do you have to bring it up? This is about a 16 year old girl marrying someone that is almost old enough to be her grandfather. I am so tired of people saying that white people are so racist but then the very same person is talking crap about white people... So grow the f#$k up because this is 2011 and everyone is equal and stop being so f*&king racist!

  • thegreatestmanalive

    This goes to show how hypocritical white people can be. Michael Jackson just had kids over to his home and he is America worst pedophile. But when you marry your victim, it's totally okay. I'm sure he was sleeping with her at 14 and 15 too.

  • Michael

    I will not be silenced by bigots who hate this couple. You don't sound intelligent when you use words like "idiot", "sick", and "hideous". Decades ago, people said nasty things about homosexuals and about mixed-race marriages. Age-based hate is the last kind of bigotry I see on a regular basis and it has to end. Also, you have the wrong word in mind. Pedophilia doesn't refer to the attraction to 16 year olds with womanly curves, but to the attraction to flat-chested prepubescents who are still in primary school. If somebody hadn't said this girl was 16 I wouldn't have guessed it. Secretly, many men are attracted to 16 year olds, and when 16 year olds use fake IDs to enter bars men swarm all over them.

    It's just sad that she's getting married, searching for fame, getting plastic surgery, at such a young age. She needs to stop what she's doing and go back to school and be a normal sixteen-year-old girl! This is sad, I can't believe her mother allows this.

  • Michael

    Charlie Chaplin, Jerry Seinfeld, John Derek, Errol Flynn, Don Johnson, Will Durant, Muhammad Ali, and many other famous adult men have had romances and marriages with teenagers under 18 when they were much older than their partners. It's time for the ageist bigotry to stop. It's not "creepy" or "disgusting", it's normal. Why would someone accept gay marriage but not the consensual relationship of a completely mature 16 or 17 year old? She's not a little girl. I extend my best wishes to the couple.
