Hilary Duff Files For Divorce From Mike Comrie After Wild Night Out
Hilary Duff is calling it quits with Mike Comrie.
The singer has hired famed attorney Laura Wasser to initiate divorce proceedings against the NHL star, with whom she has a nearly three-year-old son. Officially, the reason for the divorce is listed as irreconcilable differences. However, there is much more to the story.
Reportedly, Duff is asking for primary custody of their son, stating that Comrie’s drinking represents a potential hazard to their child’s well-being. This comes only a day after reports of Comrie’s wild night out in Beverly Hills. According to witnesses, Comrie was drunk and had his hands all over several women at Mastro’s Steakhouse, which is generally a poor scene to make when you’re still technically a married man.
Of course, while they were still technically married, the couple has been separated for at least a year now. The couple split in January 2014, but are only now getting around to filing the necessary paper work. So, realistically, Comrie hasn’t exactly violated any physical or emotional fidelity, although the excessive partying is likely going to be a tough hill to climb in the upcoming custody battle.
I suppose we’ll see, since it’s possible that Comrie won’t contest Duff’s request for custody. Although it can be a shame to see a marriage fall apart, sometimes it’s best to just end things before anyone gets hurt. You know, more so.
