Sad news from the worst of former child stars who married hockey players that are heirs to a Canadian furniture story fortune: Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie have announced their separation.
"Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation," Duff's rep says in a statement. "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."
Here we thought if she could put up with the teeth grinding she could do anything …
They began dating in 2007, got engaged in 2010, got hitched in Aug. 2010, and have a son together who will be two years old in March. Comrie retired from the NHL in 2012 due to a nagging hip ailment.
Duff became a staple at New York Islanders games during Comrie’s time with the team, getting photographed with fans in orange fright wigs. She was also once photographed on a balcony with Comrie, but we’re not exactly allowed to link to those shots.
Fare thee well, Duffrie. At least we know the Fisherwood union is still solid … oh, c’mon, not you crazy kids too?
