The Abbey in West Hollywood canceled the singing debut event of Doug Hutchinson's teen bride Courtney Stodden where she was also expected to pole-dance, according to reports. 

"Her management approached the Abbey but ultimately she just wasn't a fit," a rep for the bar told E! News. Stodden's mom, Krista Keller, added, "It was too much for the Abbey to handle, too much press and controversy."

The 18-year-old's rep Jim Strzalkowski said in a statement that the show was canceled by SBE, which owns the Abbey, "based on fear, in our opinion," noting that the gay bar had been telling the press that they would not be allowed insidethe venue to cover the show.

"It is most unfortunate that a venue such as the SBE-controlled Abbey needs to approve and censor performers that audiences want to see, and would not be able to control the crowds and paparazzi anxious to see Courtney's show," he said.

The 18-year-old will planned to perform her original song "Reality." 

"I'm super excited, it's going to be such a fun night!" Stodden said earlier this week. "You can expect to see a whole lot of sexy-me singing live and super-hot backup dancers!" 

Stodden admitted that because the Thanksgiving Day show was going to be her first live performance, she felt "a tad anxious - but in a good way," adding that she is excited to met her fans up close. 

"Oh, my goodness, the Abbey is the biggest gay nightclub in the world!" Stodden said. "I love, adore and respect the gay community so much and can't wait to meet everyone. I can't think of anywhere else to spend Thanksgiving!"

Stodden said her musical inspirations include Nancy Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Michael Jackson, Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Christiana Aguilera.
