Actress Hillary Duff Splits From Hubby Mike Comrie After 3 Years Of Marriage
January 11, 2014
The 26-year-old Disney princess and her former hockey-pro husband, 33, ‘have mutually decided [upon] an amicable separation,’ a rep for Duff confirmed to the weekly. According to People; ‘They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives. They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time,’ the statement added. A source close to Duff, who wed Comrie in August 2010, says, “There was no major incident – no big event between the two of them. They really did drift apart. They have put effort and thought into this decision for a long time. They tried couples therapy, but in the end, they realized at this time, they work better as friends. And they really are great friends.” The couple plan to co-parent 21-month-old son Luca Cruz. “They’re still going to go to the park together,” adds the source.
The split was not “a rash decision,” the source tells PEOPLE. “It’s something [Hilary] thought through,” the source explains. “She really does care about him and he really does care about her.” So sad. I hope they work it out
