We hate to hear about celebrity couples breaking up, and it’s even worse when it comes as a total shock. On Friday Hilary Duff and her husband Mike Comrie announced that they would be separating. The couple confirmed the news to People with a statement saying: “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.”
Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie (who was a professional hockey player) have been married since August of 2010, but after a little over three years and the birth of their son Luca, they just couldn’t make it work. So why did they break up?
“There was no major incident no big event between the two of them. They really did drift apart,” a source told People. “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.”
Not only is it hard to have a marriage in Hollywood, but the two come from totally different worlds; Hilary from a Disney teen star world and Mike from the world of hockey. The couple, at a time, looked so happy and sweet together. It’s sad to hear that yet another Hollywood marriage has hit the rocks. Let’s just hope they can continue to be “great friends,” for the sake of their son.
