Hilary Duff Files For Divorce from Mike Comrie: Report
The actress reportedly filed divorce papers one year after announcing separation
Hilary Duff has reportedly filed for divorce from her estranged husband Mike Comrie after nearly five years of marriage.
TMZ reports that the 27-year-old actress filed divorce papers shortly after rumors popped up about Comrie, 34, having a wild night out with friends at a restaurant in Beverly Hills, California.
The pair announced their separation in January 2014, but TMZ reports that Duff lists their separation date as January 2013.
The website also reports that Duff is seeking primary custody of their nearly 3-year-old son, Luca.
At the time of their split, Duff’s rep maintained that she and her former NHL player husband would continue to co-parent their child.
“They remain best friends and will continue to be in each other’s lives,” Duff’s rep said in a statement to PEOPLE back in January 2014. “They are dedicated to loving and parenting their amazing son, and ask for privacy at this time.”
The former couple did stay true to their word about remaining close, even going on a Valentine’s Day family vacation to Hawaii together with their son just a few weeks after announcing their split.
As Duff and Comrie remained friendly, rumors continued to pop up that the pair had reconciled, and they were spotted holding hands while leaving a Halloween party together in LA last year. However, they never confirmed that they had gotten back together.
Duff hasn’t made any references to her official split from Comrie on her social media accounts. She did share a funny shot of Luca wearing a bag over his head on Valentine’s Day, writing, “My Valentine is a weirdo.”
