Hilary Duff claims that the reason she separated from Mike Comrie was because of his poor work ethic. The former Disney star said that the couple got along great but that she just isn’t into guys that don’t want to work.
Duff married Comrie in 2010 and the couple have a son, Luca together. A source close to Duff said that things started to go sour after Comrie retired from the NHL.
“She hated how Mike let himself go after retiring from the NHL,” the source said. “She never stopped loving him, but she didn’t want a stay-at-home dad who loafed around in sweatpants all day.”
Although the marriage did not work out, Duff and Comrie have remained close friends and are happily co-parenting their son.
“We're really dedicated to taking care of Luca. We're really good friends and spend a lot of time together - and we're not in a rush for anything,” she said in an interview. “We're just trying to enjoy our lives and figure out what makes us happy and it's working for us.”
Although the friendship seems to be working out well and Luca seems to be a happy little boy, Duff admitted that things are still complicated between the couple.
“We do care a lot about each other," she explained. "We're adults and we're making our way through life. Sometimes you do that together and apart."
Duff said that she is the happiest she has ever been in her life and feels like she is growing into the person and mother that she needs to be.
She said that although things may not have turned out the way she had planned or hoped, she feels like she is on the right path and that everything will work out in the end.
