“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.”
A source close to the couple stresses that the split is extremely friendly and didn’t stem from any particular incident. They simply drifted apart over time, despite trying couple’s therapy to fix their romance. They remain best friends.
Since announcing the “split” on Friday, they have already been seen together, still being best friends. Comrie, 33, was forced to retire from hockey in 2012 after hip surgery. According to IMDB, Duff is in the upcoming film “Flock of Dudes,” which has a surprisingly awesome cast and is rumored to be in the TV movie, “Girlfriend in a Coma.” Presumably Comrie didn’t want to be reduced to purse-holding duties like Mike Fisher.
