Hilary Duff: Cigarette “Belonged To A Friend”

By: Amanda Crum - June 19, 2012

Hilary Duff swears the cigarette she was caught holding outside Rock & Reilly’s Irish Pub on Friday belonged to a friend, but most people aren’t buying it.

For some reason, the idea that Duff might be a smoker is causing an uproar online, especially on Twitter. Perhaps it’s because she’s a new mom, or that she’s so young. Or maybe it’s because we can’t look at her and not see the adorable Lizzie McGuire she used to be.

Whatever the reason, fans aren’t happy about it and caused Hilary to apologize via Twitter:

Duff has been in the news recently for various reasons; as a new mom, of course everyone is interested in when she’s going to lose that five pounds of “baby fat” she’s got going on. But more importantly, Duff is being sued for a car accident that occurred in 2010.

A woman by the name of Rachel Owens says that Duff plowed into her car in December of 2010 and the accident caused her physical and mental anguish, keeping her from earning a paycheck as well. Why she’s choosing now to file a suit is not known.

    WOW! Who made you or anyone else “GOD”. Hillary makes whatever decisions she makes for whatever reason she does. She is NOT answerable to any of you. If you are a mind-reader and you say she “lied”, what business is it of yours in the first place. Supposedly you’re a fan of her’s. You love her as she is. You don’t even begin to think you are owed an apology from her. Who’s life is it, your’s or her’s? My God people, get real! Acting and singing is her God given talent and she uses her skills as her “job”. Yes it is her “job” that she gets paid to do. No different from anyone else and their jobs. Don’t put her up on a pedestal. Let her make her own mistakes, as we all do. You’re a fan, not a mother hen. Stop hounding this actress and all others as well.

    I know the guy who used to be her tour drummer during her music “career” and one time he noticed a photographer, took the cigarette she was smoking from her hand, and smoked it himself. However, he was already smoking a cigarette, so there are just pictures of him looking like he’s smoking two at a time. She smokes, or at least, she did smoke and regularly, so the whole “holding it for a friend” thing is bullshit.
