Sometimes it’s obvious when a couple is having marital issues and heading for divorce. But for many the recent news of Hilary Duff is shocking, for Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie call it quits after three years of marriage. Sources are not indicating if a drastic situation happened for this newly separated young couple to split. Duff and Comrie also have a one-year-old son together. Hilary Duffs’ fans are being very supportive of her separation, some are even stunned upon hearing the news.
The couple first met in 2007 at a resort in Idaho and were very comfortable with each other. A few years later Hilary Duff married longtime boyfriend Mike Comrie on August 14, 2010 in Santa Barbara, CA. The couple had an intimate wedding with about 100 guests. An eyewitness who attended the wedding stated that the couple looked extremely happy.
Twitter is buzzing about Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie calling it quits. One user tweeted, “Be strong for Hilary Duff, she needs us now.” Another Hilary Duff fan tweeted, “Hilary Duff is divorcing her husband and I’m basically a wreck.” Many others are speculating that something terrible happened to cause the split. One Twitter user asked, “Duff had enough?” Another user states, “I bet they only married because Hilary was pregnant with his son.” Reports indicate the couple did try marriage counseling and therapy, but things still went downhill for them. A close source to Hilary Duff made this statement: “There was no major incident— no big event between the two of them. They really did drift apart. They have put forth effort and thought into this decision for a long time. “For Duff and Comrie, they get along better as friends.” Hilary Duff later thanked her fans for being supportive and bringing positive energy to the situation.
Upon hearing of the Hilary Duff split, a fan stated she has lost all hope for celebrity marriages because each one ends in divorce. Is that true for all celebrity marriages? Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries were only married for 72-days and then she decided to divorce him; yet, Denzel and Pauletta Washington have been married for almost 30 years. So there is still at least a little bit of hope for celebrity marriages, it all depends on the couple and whether or not they are really trying to preserve their marriage.
While Hilary Duff fans are affirming their support for her, there are not many reports of fans supporting former NHL star Mike Comrie. As much as Twitter is trending about Hilary Duff, little is said about comforting Comrie. However one user tweeted, “Mike Comrie it’s all good because Hilary Duff is ‘So Yesterday.'”
Since Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie call it quits after three years, Twitter is exploding with tweets supporting Duff’s decision. Other users have expressed concern for Duff and Comrie’s privacy, for some feel their separation should not be publicized. When a person is a celebrity, unfortunately their private lives are publicized if the media ever suspect something is going on.
