“After two and a half years of marriage, Courtney and Doug have decide to become legally separated,” the 19 year old’s rep told TODAY. “This is a mutual and amicable decision that they’re making together.”
The rep continued by saying, Courtney is “interested in exploring life as an unmarried single adult, with freed to explore her independence.”
The couple also issued a statement that explained that they still care for one another, and will remain close.
“We love each other very much, want for each other’s happiness, and will continue being the best of friends for life,” they said.
Not only will the two continue to live together—in separate rooms—but they will also continue to work together professionally, with Doug, 51, managing Courtney’s career.
