Ugh. When I heard the rumors that Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie were knee deep in marriage counseling I really hoped that it was just to work out a few little bumps in the road. Unfortunately that’s not the case. Instead they have confirmed that they have indeed seperated and it sounds like divorce is around the bend. Officially they announced that they hoe to remain best friends while raising their son together. Duff then tweeted that she and Mike were sitting together reading all of the supportive tweets and that they’ll get through this hard stuff together.
If they are together then it can’t be completely ugly and since neither is saying that they are actively working on the marriage it kind of looks like the counseling didn’t fix things and they are moving forward with divorce. Hilary is one of the very few young stars to successfully transition into adulthood without being arrested, photographed looking stoned or hiding from the fallout of an embarrassing sex tape. For that reason I think the fans really were pulling for her marriage to work out. I mean one former child star should get a happily after, right?
Do you think Hilary and Mike’s marriage is over or is this going to simply be a temporary separation? Is there any real hope here? There were rumors that Mike had cheated on Hilary. Do you think that there’s any truth to that or did these two simply grow apart? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
Here is the usual BS statement from Hilary’s rep: “Hilary Duff and husband Mike Comrie have mutually decided to an amicable separation. 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.”
