Hilary Duff has filed for divorce from her husband, Mike Comrie.
According to TMZ, this decision was directly related to reports that Comrie was “propositioning women” at Mastro’s steakhouse in Beverly Hills last month. Despite trying to work on their marriage, Mike’s behavior proved that things were not going to work out between the two. Details of their split will be worked out in the coming weeks.
“Hilary asks for primary physical custody of their son, Luca, who turns 3 next month. She wants Mike to have visitation, but sources connected with the couple say she’s concerned that his partying and drinking could adversely affect their kid. The couple has a prenup, but neither spouse is struggling in the money department. Hilary wants her earnings and other stuff to remain her stuff.”
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie had been having problems long before his steakhouse romp. The two announced their separation last year. As you can probably imagine, his antics did anything but save his marriage.
According to Mail Online, Comrie had been drinking when he arrived at Mastro’s, and his wedding ring wasn’t on his finger. He was overheard asking women things like, “how much for sex?” and “do you like what you see?” It’s unknown if a fight at home prompted this behavior, but it’s clear that Hilary wasn’t having any of it.
Despite reports that Hilary and Mike got back together in the fall, there was some chatter that Duff had moved on from her marriage. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, the Lizzie McGuire actress was linked to Nico Tortorella just before the holidays. Shortly before that, Duff spoke out about her relationship with Mike, and said that their relationship was built on a mutual love and respect.
“We don’t know what our future looks like right now but we’re both doing really good and just figuring out what makes us happy. We’re constantly seen together and people are like, ‘What are they doing? Are they back together? Are they not?’ We’re really good friends and we have so much respect for each other and obviously Luca is our number one priority,” Duff said at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles last year.
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie wed in 2010, and have one child together. The couple will likely remain good friends post-split. They will undoubtedly raise Luca together.
