Sometimes the best way to get over a breakup is to, well, get out of the house and hit the town with some pals.

And that's exactly what Courtney Stodden did on Tuesday, Nov. 5, partying with several of her male BFFs in Hollywood.

The 19-year-old reality star and her husband, Doug Hutchison, announced earlier in the day that they have decided to separate after nearly three years of marriage.

Courtney, plus her entourage, visited the Rainbow Bar & Grill on the Sunset Strip and struck a serious pose for photographers as they were spotted entering the hot spot.

The (very) newly single teen bride donned a formfitting and revealing LBD for her fun outing. She paired the dress with some strappy heels with leopard detail and a Louis Vuitton handbag.

The controversial couple are parting ways and opting to share joint custody of their dog, Dourtney, according to the Daily Mail.

The reality star's rep released a statement saying, "After two and a half years of marriage, Courtney and Doug have decided to become legally separated. This is a mutual and amicable decision that they're making together."

The statement went on to explain that Courtney's age did have a role in their split.

"As you know, Courtney was married at a young age. Now, at nineteen, she's interested in exploring life as an unmarried single young adult—with the freedom to explore her independence."

So how is the Green Mile actor handling everything?

"Doug supports Courtney 100 percent," the rep said. And it looks like the two have laid out the foundation for an ongoing work relationship in the near future.

"The two will remain living in the same house [for now] in separate bedrooms, and Doug will be co-managing Courtney's career."

The duo also expressed their gratitude for one another by saying, "We love each other very much, want for each other's happiness, and will continue being the best of friends for life."

Courtney and Doug initially landed in headlines (and hot water) after the blond star, who was 16-years-old at the time, wed the 51-year-old actor.
