2002: A.J. told Sonny that he'd only divorce Courtney if he relinquished custody of Michael. The two were at a standoff. A.J. soon fell for Courtney for real, but a series of screwups -- Courtney had to become a stripper to pay off damage from an A.J. car wreck; A.J. hired Coleman to stalk Courtney so he could protect her -- Courtney saw A.J.'s true colors and left him.
