Why did Courtney Stodden and Chris Sheng break up? They 'fought non-stop' for almost two years
Megan Fox's ex Brian Austin Green helped Stodden deal with the end of their relationship with Sheng
American media personality, model, singer, and songwriter Courtney Stodden claimed Chrissy Teigen had privately messaged to tell them to kill themself. The 26-year-old alleged Teigen sent the nasty DMs after she publicly insulted the model on Twitter back in 2011.
In an interview with the Daily Beast, they said that Teigen “wouldn’t just publicly tweet about wanting me to take ‘a dirt nap’ but would privately DM me and tell me to kill myself. Things like, ‘I can’t wait for you to die.’ And not only her, but Joy Behar had a field day with calling me a ‘slut.’ Courtney Love told me I was a ‘whore.’ People came out of the woodwork to beat up on a kid because she was in a situation that she shouldn’t have been in. There were a lot of celebrities acting like playground bullies. Some of the worst treatment I got was from women, and we’re not going to get anywhere if we keep holding each other back.”
Why did Courtney Stodden and Chris Sheng break up?
Stodden’s love life has always been in the news. They were 16 when they married 50-year old actor Douglas Hutchison. After nearly six years of marriage, they parted ways in September 2017. Stodden, who was 22 at the time, said in an interview: “We have not signed divorce papers yet. We are legally separated... I’m also trying to take things slow because I love him and it’s really hard on him... it’s extremely sensitive.”
Stodden said that they wanted to separate in order to focus on themselves and their career. They also said that suffering a miscarriage in July of 2017 “deeply affected” them and contributed to the decision to separate from Hutchinson. This was the second time that Stodden and Hutchinson had separated. Previously, the couple separated in November 2013. At the time, the then-19-year-old wanted to experience single life. “As you know Courtney was married at a young age,” their rep said then. “Now, at 19, [they are] interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult – with the freedom to explore [their] independence.”
Stodden’s first serious relationship after Hutchinson was with movie producer Chris Sheng. The two reportedly started dating in June 2017, when they were 23 and Sheng was 37. According to Stodden, they first met when Sheng reached out with an offer to help with their music and acting career.
Stodden reportedly moved in with Sheng in February 2018. A couple of months later, in April 2018, Stodden hinted on social media that they and Sheng were engaged. But in January 2020, Stodden was spotted cozying up with another 'mystery man' outside a West Hollywood restaurant.
Last year in July, tabloids reported that Megan Fox's ex Brian Austin Green and Stodden were helping each other get over their recent breakups. They were "chatting for a month" after he reached out to them online, a source claimed. As per The Sun, the source said that Green was helping them deal with the end of their relationship with Sheng.
"Courtney was dating Chris Sheng for almost two years but they fought non-stop and Brian and Megan, while they are still friends and co-parents, haven't been able to live together for months,” the source said. Sources also told The Sun that their relationship with Sheng had been on the rocks for some time. The source said, "They broke up six months ago and got back together and split about six weeks ago for good. She is [they are] done with him. It was time for her [them] to move on. Right now Brian and Courtney are having fun together."
“There is nothing serious but lots of chemistry. People probably think this won't last but actually, they are so similar they are sort of a perfect match. They both have the same silly sense of humor so they spend a lot of time laughing and have connected on many levels,” the source said, adding, "Courtney's friends have been saying she is [they are] a better long-term match to Brian than Megan. Right now they both are looking for fun, a new beginning, and to get past a difficult time.”
