Courtney has reinvented herself as Ember as she embarks on a pop career.
The star, who rose to fame after marrying 50-year-old Green Mile actor Doug Hutchinson when she was just 16, has written a song called Sixteen about the experience.
The pinup talked to TooFab about the meaning behind it all, explaining: 'Obviously, it was inspired by my controversial marriage and the age I was and the effect it had on me behind closed doors,'

'There's a lot of love in that relationship, a lot of toxic energy as well,' she said. 'When you're still madly in love with someone, when it's falling apart, it's going to get toxic.'
She added, 'We're both trying our hardest to hold onto our sanity during this difficult time. I'm hoping that the pain will heal in a sense.
'I put my entirety into the song ... that song is just scratching the surface to be honest.'

Ember is still in the process of hashing out her divorce with Doug, who she married seven year's ago and split from in January 2017.
'I became famous at a really young age and I think in order to handle that, I became this character, like a Halloween costume if you will, every day,' she explained of getting plastic surgery to transform herself into a blonde bombshell shortly after getting married.
'I think with the divorce happening, I went through some major soul searching and realized that if I continue down that route I don't think I'm going to make it to 27, to be deep and honest.'

On how she came up with her new moniker Ember explained: 'I was getting kind of drunk around a fire and I was like, "What are those called?"' Her friend said, 'Those are embers' and it clicked. 'I said, "Oh my god, I'm Ember, I'm a dying fire."'
In addition to Sixteen, she's already released the single #MeToo," in which shares her experience with sexual assault.
The redheaded beauty said it's her hope that she will inspire others with her music when her album drops on July 8.
